When LeBron dropped his back-to-Cleveland bombshell this afternoon, Miami Heat fans weren't just confronted with losing the greatest player in the game. Suddenly it seemed all too possible that MIA could go to from the Finals to the cellar overnight, with Chris Bosh fielding a monster offer from Houston and Chicago reportedly courting hometown star Dwyane Wade.

Well, LeBron is still bound for Ohio but Heat fans can crawl out of their doomsday bunkers. Chris Bosh has reportedly decided to re-sign with the Heat, and Wade is working on a new deal.

A team built around Wade, Bosh, and new signings like Danny Granger, Josh McRoberts and rookie Shabazz Napier could still make some waves in the East -- especially if another free agent signing or two comes through. (Ahem, LeBron tormenter Lance Stephenson, anyone?)

Bosh will reportedly get a max deal for $118 million and five years.

Even more importantly, the single most meme-able member of the team will return to the 305, a genuinely fascinating athlete who learned Spanish, takes coding classes and has been working on his deal from Ghana, where he's traveling around spreading the gospel of hoops.

Welcome back, sweet Interstellar Prince.

i love the shirt he is wearing in that pic..but the heat did overpay by a ton. he is not a max contract caliber player. this will be a move pat riley will regret in the near future

As others have said, this turned back into a money issue. LBJ was getting max contract, the other 2 weren't had they stayed together. Bosh played 4/88 vs 5/118 years well. A matter of what Wade gets offered now ?

Max deal for Bosh bad idea. Better to rebuild and not get stuck for years to come. Wade also on the way down. Need to rebuild younger.

Amare Stoudamire, Tim Hardaway Jr, could make their respective way to Miami. Carlos Boozer amnesty from Chicago, DWade should be amnesty from Miami. If Oden not going to play, amnesty him also

Bosh is CLUTCH. Him staying in Miami and getting out of the shadow of LeBron will hopefully allow him to display more of his game...its no secret that when he played in games that Bron was out he filled the stat sheet.

Dude is not worth shit...he didint anything. Surprised that contract agreement was even establish for Bosh. This is drama is too much..You are saying that he is there with melo contract....and melo took the Knicks on his shoulder potentially reaching the 8th spot last playoff? This is a joke to me.

The people complaining don't know shit. Bosh never played in the low post. Even in Toronto, he was a face up player. He's gonna produce big numbers now that he'll get a chance.
