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.
