4Heat Fans: Dream come true?

ESPN and Yahoo Sports reporting Bosh/Wade will announce their intention to sign with Miami Wednesday [1] in a last ditch effort to form Los Tres Amigos with James.

Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have decided to sign with the Miami Heat while continuing to recruitLeBron James to help them form an All-Star triumvirate that threatens to shift the NBA’s balance of power, two sources with knowledge of the plans told Yahoo! Sports. “They think they’ve got a real chance to pull this off with LeBron,” a league source said. Said an official with one team that made a formal presentation to James: “It’s down to Cleveland or Miami for him.”
The three players shared a call after midnight on Wednesday, when Wade and Bosh told James they were committing to the Heat, a source said. James didn’t commit with them, but kept his own plans private for a television announcement on Thursday night. Wade and Bosh plan to formally announce their decision on Wednesday afternoon.

Chicago Tribune also waves white flag on Bulls' behalf.

It's time for Plan C for the Bulls.
A source close to Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh confirmed that Bosh plans to join Wade in South Florida and will sign with the Miami Heat. ESPN first reported the decision [this morning while] sources [also] told Yahoo Sports that Wade and Bosh spoke with James on the phone early Wednesday, told him of their plans [to join the Heat] and are trying to recruit him to join them in Miami. 
The Tribune reported Tuesday that the Bulls had begun fearing losing out on two of its top targets. If James does not pick the Bulls, they are expected to pursue from among Carlos Boozer, David Lee and shooters like Kyle Korver, Ray Allen (who is expected to re-sign with the Celtics) or Mike Miller.
