What LeBronâ€™s departure did to the city of Cleveland became a coup for the economy in Miami. Heat ticket sales quickly became a hot commodity with a 9.9% increase and the viewership for the Miami games increased a whopping 69% from last season. As you can imagine, advertising and surrounding businesses in the Miami area are feeling the boom. Estimates state that despite the $329 million in player contracts Miami is bound to until 2016, the collective financial impact in South Florida could exceed $1 billion. King Jamesâ€™ presence also impacted other cities this season when LeBron and company came to town. Before the season started, 18 of 30 NBA teams had sold out their games against Miami.
