I'm not talking this year but before their contracts are up, do you think any of them leave, and if so, who?

I say Bosh and Lebron stay and the Heat end up trying to trade D Wade since he's older and more beat up. Build around Bron and Bosh with extra cap/trade and draft picks for D Wade.

My guess would be LeBron. This is just part of LeBrons journey, having the chance to team up with Wade and Bosh and see what they can accomplish together. It is more of a freak show kind of thing that I don't see lasting beyond his contract expiration. I honestly think he'll finish his career in Cleveland.

100% agree!!! He brought them a championship, then James and Bosh come and it's Wade's fault. I just don't see that happening. What is also difficult is that if Wade soesn't go, you can't let Bosh go because Lebron and Wade don't gell, and there is no way Lebron would go anywhere. So seeing someone go, i don't think it'll happen during the contract no matter how bad it gets.

What RIPSweetness posted would probably be the smart thing to do, but like Abe said, Wade means too much to Miami. I think it would be the dumbest thing to trade Lebron as you are basically guarenteed the playoffs every year by just having him on the team. I think Bosh is the most likely to be moved because his contract is reasonable, and a team that needs an athletic big could make a move for him hoping that he can be the guy he was in toronto. I dont think anyone will laeve though, I just think Bosh is the best candidate. No one will move because all 3 of these players are much better than they are playing, and because they are so talented, they will eventually play well in Miami

They are 16 games into their 6 year deals..

If they go on to win multiple championships, then why leave?

Doubt it. They are going through a tough strech but it will get better. I'm sure they question their decisions once in a while but overall they probably wouldn't want to admit they were wrong. Now...the Heat might one day make the decision for them and trade one of them.

If Wade meant so much to Miami fans, I would think they would sell out more often than they did last year.

In case you missed this past summer, loyalty doesn't exist in the NBA.


Best move would be to trade Wade for a big man that can bang on both ends of the court.

Just thinking here, but if these 3 can't play together could you see one of the big 3 traded?

Trade Wade: Older than James, so Heat move forward with LeBron and Bosh as corner stones

Trade LeBron: Stick with face of franchise in Wade cuz the 2 can't play together so Wade and Bosh can run pick and rolls, and surround Wade with talent or players in return for LeBron

Trade Bosh: Trading Bosh in order to get a true force in the post, however he has a terrible contract so that would be hard

Thoughts?!?!

None of it will happen.

A good story could be Wade getting dealt and then winning a title with his new team.

Bosh seems the logical choice, but they really need a big man or a PG.
You can probably get Brook Lopez for him. That's a no brainer.

IMO Bosh and Wade or Bosh and Lebron would be more valuable than keeping the two guys that both need the ball. Wade and Lebron together are as much of an issue as the lack of a big. Trade Lebron and you could get both the big and the PG that the Heat need.

LeBron > Wade and Bosh in terms of talent and age.

Bosh > Wade in terms of age and position of need.

Loyalties aside, I say trade Wade for a very good, defensive center and a solid 6th man and 7th man and go from there.

I agree that Bosh is not as good as Pau. But salaries rarely reflect actual ability. They reflect the market and the market was white hot this summer. That's why virtually 90% of Raptors fans did NOT want him to be re-signed as a max player. He's good, but we did not want a team built around him. He's a good complementary piece though and he would have looked amazing on the Bulls.

Lebron. Heat would likely get the most value of of him. Bosh may not be playing like a star, but I think redistributing the touches which Lebron gets to Bosh et all will really help him get into more of a rhythm. Similarly I like the dynamic of Wade and Bosh, and doubt Wade would be traded.

From a basketball standpoint: Trade Wade, he's the oldest and honestly LeBron's just better

From a PR standpoint: Trade Bosh, they could get good value and trading Wade or LeBron would be seen as admitting defeat, and I think LeBron and Wade are capable of winning together with the right pieces around them.

What I think will actually happen: I think if they don't win in the first two years things will start getting heated (pun intended), people will be angry, and if they don't win by year three LeBron is the one who asks out, he'd still be in his prime and there are 28 teams (I'm guessing you know which team I'm excluding) that would love to have him.

Heat get a big man that can bang on both ends of the floor + an outside shooting PG that can play like Mo Williams did when he had Lebron

Bucks get a superstar in a market that desperately needs on. Milwaukee is the least valuable team in the NBA and has trouble producing revenue. Even if they aren't better from a basketball stand point, more people will show up to see Wade, the Marquette product.

Wade plays close to home, I believe that divorce case is still going on. He plays for a competitive team that has a ton of cap space during the upcoming off season. He's clearly the loser in this scenario but it's not like he's going to Vancouver or Turkey.

No matter how bad the Heat performs this year, they should still try to see how things workout for atleast one season. With that said, it should be Lebron who gets traded.

Lebron James may be better from a talent, age, and injury perspective compared to Wade, but he's shown this year that his main concern is his own brand, stats, and getting things done in his own way. The oncourt antics with the picture taking and dancing, the elbow, the decision, the refusal to admit any form of fault with the way he delivered his decision, the complain about playing too many minutes despite averaging significantly less minutes per game, the commercial, the bump, and so on. The man just brings way too much drama with him.

Stickng with Wade, the player who has lead a team to the championship with far less complaints, drama, and finger pointing, would be a wiser choice because he's the better leader.

Use Lebron to get honest hard working players who don't view themselves being above the team that are complementary to both Wade and Bosh. Lebron's attitude really isn't a good fit for a team that wants to become a dynasty.

the current problem is that lebron and wade cant figure out how to play together. if this can never be fixed, then obviously there would be some consideration for trading one of the big 3. they wouldnt even consider bosh because he actually would fit in great with just one of them. they wouldnt trade wade because they will be loyal to the guy that has been there his whole career and brought them a championship. they would trade lebron. and honestly, lebron is such a hot commodity that they would still be legit championship contenders because they will be able to get so much value for him.

im not saying that this happens...just that if 3 years down the block they havent contended yet, then a trade will most likely be in consideration.
