LeBron Would Be Nuts To Stay In Miami, Because Dwyane Wade Is Dead

In the commotion surrounding the immediate real estate plans of LeBron James and, to a lesser extent, a supporting cosmos of NBA stars, it has gone politely unsaid that one of the summer production's principals is—and in fact has been—dead.
