Miami Reacts to LeBron on Twitter: From "Thank You" to #WadeCounty
Despite an act of street art vandalism, Miamians have mostly reacted in measured respect to LeBron James' decision. Miami's most notable almost universally took to Twitter with messages full of nothing but thank yous and respect.
The only real shade came in the form of Miamians rallying back around our original superstar Dwyane Wade. (Who, you know, sadly we should remind you technically hasn't resigned with the Heat yet.) Behind #HeatNation, #WadeCounty is currently the second biggest trending hashtag in Miami right now.

Good for LeBron. Hugely grateful for last four years. Even the last 10 days have been amazing fun. You won't hear a negative syllable here— Dan Le Batard Show (@LeBatardShow) July 11, 2014

Of course, it wasn't all "thank you." There was a little bit of fun, including a #WadeCounty hashtag.
