It’s all becoming clear why David Stern turned his nose up at the thought that the gathering of Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and LeBron James in South Beach reeks of collusion. For one, it would be pretty hard to even prove such a notion, but most importantly, he has big plans for the new and improved Miami Heat. Plans that include parading the Heat around the world so that other countries can get a glimpse of just what can be done in the NBA when you unload almost every player on your roster.
LAS VEGAS — One of the NBA’s most star-studded teams just might soon find itself showcased on the league’s international stage.
During his news conference after Monday’s owners’ meeting, NBA commissioner David Stern said the presence of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh on one team makes the Heat a global attraction.
That could mean more preseason games in the future as part of the league’s initiatives in Europe, Africa and China in the coming seasons.
“We look forward to seeing them in Miami, and all over the world,” Stern said when asked if the Heat might be tapped for international exposure.
Get ready, folks. We’re heading to seeing the Miami Heat all day, every day. The NBA might as well get a jump on things and change their tagline to:
The NBA: Where The Miami Heat Happen.
