The Miami Heat NBA basketball team are on the offensive after losing LeBron James, reportedly agreeing to a massive five-year, near-$134 million deal to retain nine-time All-Star Chris Bosh.

Free agent James had broken up Miami's so-called 'Big Three' by announcing he's returning to his home state of Ohio to re-sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, after winning two NBA titles with Miami.

Bosh, who averaged 16.2 points and 6.6 rebounds, had appeared headed to the Houston Rockets on a four-year contract worth almost $100 million to join Dwight Howard and James Harden - before the Heat upped the ante after James's exit.
