You don't know that any more than than any of us do, and I am pretty sure Lebron and his guys aren't the only people who know.
It's pretty easy to put two and two together, J-Dud is a good friend and now former teammate of Amar'e. Dudley has nothing to gain or lose by reporting that, as he is not getting ratings out of it like ESPN would. Dudley even said it's not like he cares, he was simply relaying the information provided to him.
I'm still not totally sold on the Heat, because they simply just won't have anybody else to back them up. They might win 60 games in regular season, but would they really be able to hold up through the playoffs?
