On Air: The Official Blog of WSJU Sports

“First off I’d like to thank everyone for coming. This decision was a long and hard one to make. After heavy consideration from my family and friends I have decided to take my journey through the NBA else where. I’d like to thank the Cleveland Cavaliers organization and my teammates who I’ve had the great pleasure of playing with during my time here. I would like to thank the fans the most for coming out and cheering the loudest they could ever night. The city of Cleveland, Ohio has been more then just a place for me to play basketball. It has been my home since birth. Growing up in Akron made me the man I am today and I won’t forget that. I love Cleveland. It will always be my home but today I have decided to go else where. Today I open a new chapter in my career in hopes that the dreams I have, which have been overshadowed by failure, will be succeeded.

The team I have chosen to join for the next part in my career has what I’m looking for. The desire to win. The players that share the passion I have for the game. Basketball isn’t just a game. It is life to me. This team is going to help me in my life and make it a successful one. I’ve spent this past week talking to numerous teams. I would like to thank The Miami Heat, The New Jersey Nets, The New York Knicks, The Los Angeles Clippers, The Chicago Bulls and of course the Cleveland Cavaliers for all their time. They spent months I am sure getting a plan ready to sell to me for their team and not make me only apart of it but apart of their family. And so my decision has been made. I have picked the Miami Heat as my new team. I will join Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Pat Riley and the Heat organization. I felt that this would be the place I could win and I’d be happy with my decision. Again thank you Cleveland for all you have given me. I hope you will still follow me and support me throughout my career.”
