Chris Bosh thinks Miami Heat will beat the Cleveland Cavaliers:
"Of course, we're going to win it. And let me tell you something, nothing's going to change. If anything, I'm going to have a bigger chip on my shoulder. Maybe people in Miami really don't know that side of me, but I want something more than just to compete. I believe in our ability, no matter who I'm playing with. You ask me 10 times, 10 times I'll say yes."
The article also stated how it was a shock when Lebron announced he would be singing with the Cavs. A revealing reaction very similar to how Lebrons Cavs team mates would have felt in 2010. James is quite enthusiastic & communicative w/ his 'boys' when it's time to join forces & form the Big 3.....but when it comes to having courtesy & conveying his desire to depart he seems to lose the brotherhood mentality & treat his friends like strangers."I can't lie to you: I'm excited. I'm excited for the challenge," Bosh said during a break from NBA Africa duties. "I want to step up to the challenge. I feel this is a chance to prove to myself and others that I can still do this.
"I want to see if I can do what's necessary to go in there and win every night. That's the challenge of being a leader. It excites me. It's been a long time and I feel like I'm a much better player and a leader now, so it'll be fun."
"We have so much chemistry," Bosh said. "We'll just be continuing without LeBron. It's starting a different chapter. It's exciting. I think it should be motivation for everybody to step up to the plate. We're fortunate enough to have some of the same guys. We should be able to say, 'Hey, we can come out here and compete no matter what happens.'"

It's good the shock/betrayal translates to determination & playing with a bigger purpose for Bosh. Hopefully it does too for Wade & we see a glimpse of this beast:
From what i've been reading & Riley bringing back alot of the core players, most have that same chip on their shoulders. It will be interesting how this will all transpire & translate to the chemistry & relationship of this team & players. Lebron & the Cavs will now be a big target & cannot wait for the first meeting & especially the first meeting on Heats floor. One things for sure Lebron dropping them like an ex girlfriend will light the fire in their belly this entire season. I also like the doubting & nay sayers.....this essentially puts Miami & Wade back to their natural status as true underdogs! Go Heat!
