LeBron 'King James' picks Miami Heat
(CNN) NBA superstar LeBron James announced Thursday night that he will take his high-priced services to the Miami Heat.
James, who has played forward for the Cleveland Cavaliers all his career, announced his decision during a much-ballyhooed ESPN special entitled "The Decision."
The superstar free agent said a conversation with his mother Thursday morning sealed the deal.
"I think I decided this morning," James said. "Then I talked with my mom. Once I had that conversation with her I think I was set."
James will be playing with shooting guard Dwyane Wade and power forward Chris Bosh in Miami. "We're going to be a really good team."
Late Thursday, Wade showed his excitement about the news. "I look forward to playing alongside LeBron, Chris Bosh and our teammates, and together representing the great city of Miami. There's magic in the number 3," he said.
