The King, The Prince and The Earl of Bosh…

Now that the deal is done and the new era in the NBA begins in Miami it is time for a rebranding of images.  It is time, now that LeBron has chosen the path of less resistance, that Miami Thrice are given new individual nicknames.

The King who once was; is dead, and that moniker belongs to the Alpha on the Miami squad.  That role is and will be played by Dwayne Wade.  It is why he has always been pictured on this journey at the center of the triumverate or in the foreground.  He is the hero of the piece and the “killer”.

LeBron is now the Prince.  The heir apparent.  He sold his birthright for rings, but once filled, he will realize the cost.  He will still shine.  But he no longer has a seat at the table with Jordan, Magic and Kobe.

Bosh has been delivered from his basketball exile in Toronto and now has a chance to be something really special.  He is now a household name and will reap the rewards of his alliance.  But, alliances are to help the weak grow strong, and he will have sowed in very good soil.

The King, The Prince and The Earl of Bosh.  Dwayne Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh.  A new moniker for a new era.  An era only time and history will be able to judge.  But for me, this is how I will continue to refer to them.
