Heat - Cavs: LeBron Adds to the Rumors

The Heat and Cavs played last night on national television, and as expected, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James did not disappoint. The two combined for 70 points (36 from Wade and 34 from LeBron) and several highlight-worthy plays, including this abusive dunk by Wade on Sideshow Bob Anderson Varejao:

Yeah, that was just a filthy dunk. Notice how Varejao bounces off the ground and into the basket's support.

Anyways, the Cavs wound up winning, and the Heat dropped to 6-2 on the season. But the most intriguing part of all of this goes back to the rumors of LeBron joining Wade in Miami next season.

Yes, it is still probably far-fetched, but where there is smoke, there is fire. It dawned on me the other day that if LeBron were to join the Heat, he would have to change his number from 23 because the Heat retired that number when Michael Jordan retired (for the final time) due to the mutual respect between Jordan and Pat Riley.

So LeBron would have to wear wear something other than 23. Then this happened after the game: he spoke about how he thinks no one should wear MJ's no. 23 at all in the league, and suggested that he will change his own number next season to 6 -- his Olympic number.

This can only add fuel to the fire that is the ruminations that people think LeBron will join Wade in Miami in 2010 and beyond.
