They put a lot of pressure on themselves. They're constantly criticized by a variety people ranging from the public to other NBA greats. They've tried to embrace being the villian, but all of them want to be liked (at least it seems that way).

Do you think any of them regret joining forces?

Since when has Wade been hated and/or criticized during this whole Big 3 clique? He's probably the only one who is loved by the NBA/media public.

As for James and Bosh, the same can't be said. However, we would be stupid to believe that both of them regret joining a beautiful city in Miami as well as a winning team.

i don't think they regret it. at least not yet. great teams face great expectations. all of them. and expectations create pressure. it is how you handle this pressure that decides whether or not you are still playing in june.

but i do think they thought they would be loved. and that was a serious miscalculation. all they need to do is win a title or two, and the pressure will ease off a bit. they still won't be loved, but who cares about that if they have a title?

I think Lebron shouldve chose the Clippers (Clippers was one of his choices)

Bledsoe, Gordon, Lebron, Griffin, Jordan w/ Aminu the 6th man is the PERFECT team.

For now and the future. But to answer the question no they dont regret it

JasonJohnHorn

I have to imagine at this point that Wade and LBJ are disapointed they teamed up with Bosh. He just hasnt brought it to the table with Miami. And I would imagine that Bosh might be wondering what it would have been like to work as a post tandem with Amare in NY.

I dont care how good these guys are (and they are all great), and even though they might be winning, they have to seriously question whether they have gone about things the right way. Its just human nature.

It looks like Lebron regrets it a bit. Many nights it seem like he can dominate but he can't he has to refer to wade and gave Bosh shots as well. They look funny playing together, they just take turn all three trying to average 25ppg. The other teammates look like roster fillers doing nothing.

I think that has more to do with his stupid comments on the Bulls front office. He said things that he couldn't of been more wrong about. And I don't think the fans have forgiven him. He tried to make Chicago look like a terrible place to play for, And it seemed to work a little bit.

I don't see how LeBron could watch a Bulls game and not think "man, I wish I was playing with Derrick Rose". Assuming Bosh was following him wherever he went, just logically he was picking between Wade, and Rose/Noah/Gibson/Deng. And honestly if we was that desperate for Wade, I'm guessing they could have dealt Deng to the Clips to clear up more money. We all dodged a bullet by him choosing the Heat, because those Bulls team legitimately would have won 70 games every year. Oh, and I'm a Knicks fan, this isn't Derrick Rose homerism, this is fact.

I know for pretty much a fact that Bulls fans would rather have Wade on our team than Lebron. If lebron was there we'd have to move Deng. If Wade was here, we'd have to move nobody, he'd be our starting SG.

R u kidding me? regret joining forces?
LeBron James - When I struggle or can't feel it, I could look at Dwade or Chris Bosh and say I can't do it on my own rather than looking at Varajao or Mo williams.

Dwade - I don't have to score 40 or 50 every night cause i'm playing with 2 of the best players in this league. I won't have to wait on Michael Beasley showing his potential.

CB1 - Man im playing with 2 of the top 3 players in the league. I live in Hot/warm south beach, i don-t live in cold *** Toronto anymore. IM JUST CHILLING

PLEASE even though I HATE this team, Im pretty sure not 1 second this 3 are regretting what they did.

I think he regrets not choosing the Bulls and even the Knicks to some extent.

The Bulls because he would be playing with Rose, Nuff said.

Knicks because of the atmosphere in the garden. He saw the adoration that Melo was showered with in his first game as a Knick. After all it is the Mecca of basketball.

Plus the Knicks would have been better because they would have had all the pieces they gave up in the Melo deal.

hotpotato1092
02-26-2011, 08:24 PM
Oh, and as for Wade and Bosh, I think they both have their regrets, but ultimately they made the right choice. Honestly the best move for Bosh's career would have been to team up with a defensive center, with Chicago being the obvious choice but several other options being available, and honestly the best move for Wade in my opinion would have been teaming up with one other star (presumably Bosh) and adding role players. I'm a fan of the two star/role players model for winning titles. Hypothetically, if the Heat win 5+ titles, both he and LeBron's place historically is tainted by the presence of the other. I don't think LeBron ever cracks the top 4 (MJ, Russell, Magic, Bird) and in all likelihood the top 6 (Kareem and Wilt), and I doubt Wade cracks the top 20. However, if Wade were to win, let's say two titles with Chris Bosh, and end up with stats similar to Kobe's, I think he could end up in the 10-15 range. Even if their places in history don't matter to them, I think they'd all prefer to be loved than hated, particularly Bosh who gets ripped by every NBA expert on a seemingly daily basis, so I think they'd all at least consider doing it over. But in the end, I doubt Wade or Bosh give up a guaranteed title shot and double digit nationally televised games every year.

To be honest, I don't see how LeBron wouldn't regret not choosing the Bulls. Throw away the Noah factor, throw away Deng and Gibson, throw away playing for a better coach, just compare Derrick Rose to Dwyane Wade. Derrick Rose might be the better player RIGHT NOW, you could argue that he isn't, personally I think they're pretty even, but Derrick Rose is a 22 year old point guard with a clean bill of health, Dwyane Wade is a 29 year old shooting guard with serious health issues. Dwyane Wade might be better for a title run or two, but if you really wanna pass Jordan do you really think Wade would be as good during title #6 as he would be during title #1? If you choose Rose, he's might not even be 30 when you reach #6, assuming they didn't screw things up too badly, THEY COULD HAVE WON 10 TITLES!!!!!!!!! And just look at it from a playing standpoint, both are great scorers who admittedly do need the ball, but Rose is a better passer, and just from a personality standpoint, who is more likely to defer to LeBron, the guy in his 7th year and in his prime who already has a ring, or the 22 year old 3rd year known as one of the most humble guys in the league? Now when you add back in Noah, Deng, Gibson and Thibadeau, Chicago is BY FAR the better choice. I don't see how that's even debatable (but of course the Heat fans will try). LeBron could have been the undisputed leader of the greatest dynasty professional sports would ever see, now he's sharing the spotlight with a worse player fighting just to win one title (and given the current state of Boston, LA and San Antonio, and the futures of Oklahoma City, Chicago, and New York, they may never get one). Chicago was the right choice, Miami was not.

This is true, but I think the "sexier" addition would have been LeBron, and given the choice I think Reinsdorf takes LeBron. I think they would have either made Deng a super sixth man and just added a shooting guard via a buyout (i.e maybe Rip Hamilton), or traded Deng for one. Also consider Wade's age and injury history, and I think LeBron i the better long term fit, but if you're arguing that Wade would be better for THIS season, I'd agree.

No.When he reached the Finals in 2007,everyone knew they'll be sweep by the Spurs and they were.

Then he was 2nd round,ECF and 2nd round exit again by the celts twice (which was anticipated) and the Magic who were a bad matchup.

So,yes LBJ never has a real chance at a title.

Chicago was the right choice, Miami was not.
I agree. During the offseason, I thought Chicago was the best spot for LeBron. I thought there might have been some trouble due to Rose and LeBron both being primarily on-ball players, but as you point out, it would be better in Chicago than it is in Miami. Chicago has a solid team with one hole at SG which would've been resolved via a Deng trade had LeBron went there.

All in all though, I don't think they regret their decision. Miami got 3 stars and should be able to fix their issue of depth in the offseason. It made sense for all of them. Bosh was on a losing team, Wade was on a lower seed, and LeBron couldn't get past the top tier teams. They were all so tired of being one man teams that they teamed up to form a superteam. I think it's inevitable they will win atleast one title, maybe after Boston weakens.

He didn't have a chance at the title before. In all his years in Cleveland, he has never had a legit second option. The closest was Mo Williams, who has ONE all-star appearance. Even that was as an injury replacement, and it still wasn't the best choice.

I bet the only regret is from the Heat front office....

Signing Bosh, as much as people like to defend him, was a pretty bad move... If he maintained his production throughout the rest of his contract, he still wouldn't be worth the multi millions they signed him for... The fact that he is only going to get worse makes it that much worse of a signing....

He isn't close to a max signing... The Heat would still be in the position they currently are in if Bosh was still playing on Toronto...

FALSE!

Bosh was a key signing to get both. Bosh signing in Miami got Wade to resign and then eventually Lebron to Miami. If Bosh signed elsewhere, Wade probably leaves Miami as well. Then there'd be no way Lebron comes to Miami.

Rose never wanted Lebron James to join the bulls. They said it on Tnt the other night when Bulls were playing against Miami in which I am glad the bulls beat the heat. Do u blame Rose for not wanting Lebron James because Rose dont need Lebron James. Lebron James needs Rose to win a championship. Rose can hold he's own and if the bulls win the championship that rose don't want Lebron James to steal the spotlight away from Rose because Rose wants to be considered the best in the game without needing a spotlight whore like lebron james.

I doubt they do, what is pretty unbelievable is that the Heat have played this entire season mostly without Udonis Haslem and Mike Miller and still have the second best record in the NBA. They are relying on old scrubs right now and still are in every game they play. They haven't been able to close out some of the better teams in the league as of yet but it's not like they are getting blown out in these games, almost every single one has come down to the final possessions and the Heat haven't been able to get that last possession shot to go in as of yet.

That team is scary to play against and it's mostly 3 on 5 out there, can you imagine how much better they will be when Miller and Haslem are 100% ? How bout how much better they will be next year when they add players? They signed 6 year contracts so in no way is this a 1 year thing. Many are acting as if the Heat don't win it all this year then it was a complete bust and failure but they are only going to get better next year and the year after....

That mid-level is going to come in handy for the next few years and the Heat will be able to attract players to come play with the "Big 3" with ease. I don't want to begin to think about how good that team can be if they add a capable center and point guard in the next few years.

Just stop you are embarrassing yourself, every major athlete is on TV to boost their pay checks and what moronic comment has Wade made?

I don't think its possible to embarrass yourself on a forum.

No, all 3 guys are all stars and given the circumstances have been pretty successful this season. Add that to the fact that Boston just traded Perk, and its not out of the realm of possiblity that the Heat make it to the Finals. I'm not sure they'll win it, but the Celtics coming out of the East is no longer a lock...

I doubt they do, what is pretty unbelievable is that the Heat have played this entire season mostly without Udonis Haslem and Mike Miller and still have the second best record in the NBA. They are relying on old scrubs right now and still are in every game they play. They haven't been able to close out some of the better teams in the league as of yet but it's not like they are getting blown out in these games, almost every single one has come down to the final possessions and the Heat haven't been able to get that last possession shot to go in as of yet.

That team is scary to play against and it's mostly 3 on 5 out there, can you imagine how much better they will be when Miller and Haslem are 100% ? How bout how much better they will be next year when they add players? They signed 6 year contracts so in no way is this a 1 year thing. Many are acting as if the Heat don't win it all this year then it was a complete bust and failure but they are only going to get better next year and the year after....

That mid-level is going to come in handy for the next few years and the Heat will be able to attract players to come play with the "Big 3" with ease. I don't want to begin to think about how good that team can be if they add a capable center and point guard in the next few years.

I don't know why people keep saying this, there probably won't be a midlevel exception in the next CBA, and if there is it will be substantially reduced to the point that no player worth adding for them would take it. If it's a hard cap, there are no exceptions period. If it's a soft cap, it will be much harder, meaning less exceptions for less money and smaller max salaries, but since they probably won't be able to roll back current contracts, the Heat will be stuck with three very player favorable max contracts in a CBA where it would kill them. The Heat won't be making any substantial additions, this is the team they're likely going forward with, the one exception being some of the minimum guys being replaced by new minimum guys. The one way they can shake up the team is trading Bosh, but I doubt they do that.

No, because now you're baiting also just like a few of your fellow Miami fans, that you've chosen to ignore.

No.When he reached the Finals in 2007,everyone knew they'll be sweep by the Spurs and they were.

Then he was 2nd round,ECF and 2nd round exit again by the celts twice (which was anticipated) and the Magic who were a bad matchup.

So,yes LBJ never has a real chance at a title.Will i don't think that is about to change, I still see them being put out by Boston. And witrh more stars joining they may never win so it's still to early to tell

It looks like Lebron regrets it a bit. Many nights it seem like he can dominate but he can't he has to refer to wade and gave Bosh shots as well. They look funny playing together, they just take turn all three trying to average 25ppg. The other teammates look like roster fillers doing nothing.

#6 will regret it when the Heat actually win the championship and it is D-Wade that is first to hoist the trophy and hear the initial surge of energy from the fans.

It would of been nice to see him do it in Cleveland but that is now the past. Best of luck to you #6, Hopefully we will be seeing you in a few years.

D-Wade is kicking himself no doubt. Bosh is a boner and if you watch the Bulls game the other night, look at how Wade reacts to LBJ's last shot. Wade's a champion, the other two are not.

Heat did it right going after LBJ though, but I think everyone knows Bosh was a mistake. Bulls got Boozer for less than Bosh and he wanted to go to Miami. If he had, the Heat would've had more cash for other players.

Can't see them regretting the move--they're in a desirable city with warm weather climate all year round, they all received close to max money, they overcame their tumultuous start earlier in the year and now have pretty dam good chemistry. This is a perennial 60+ win team and a championship contender for however long they decide to stay together.

Umm no. Bosh resigning in Miami convinced Wade to resign with the Heat. With the other signing in Miami, that's when Lebron decided to go to the Heat. Chris Bosh was the glue to getting Wade and Lebron. So in retrospect, the Heat will NOT regret signing Bosh.

It was all pre-arranged. Stop pretending like it was a process with some legitimacy. Everyone knows Miami was tampering too.

I actually do think they were taking a hard look at CHI. All signs pointed to them joining up somewhere, when you look at the time periods of their contracts, the '08 olympics, etc..... I don't think it was definite they were going to MIA.

I don't think they regret it now. But if they don't win a championship within the next couple of years. Then not only do they regret it but I think you might see some possible trading of Miami's Big 3. And it's possible they won't. Especially with the Knicks getting better with Melo and the possibility of getting Paul. And let's not forget about Chicago, Boston, LAL, OKC, SAS, and Dallas.

Or because he works with the Jordan brand is sincerely concerned about how he'll be treated after he retires?

I think Lebron will regret it. This is Wade's team, so he is chillin, and Bosh got paid so he doesnt care. But Lebron needs the ball just as much as Wade does, and it will be a constant battle to see who will take over in different times of the game.

ummmmm, NO!!! Why the hell would they regret becoming a legit contender. Alot of people are making judgements based on what they see so far not even realizing that this wasnt a one year plan. The Heat obviously have weaknesses which will be addressed in he offseason. Wade, James & Bosh are the foundation. Riley is a freaking genius so im sure this team will get better and better over the next 2 years.

They put a lot of pressure on themselves. They're constantly criticized by a variety people ranging from the public to other NBA greats. They've tried to embrace being the villian, but all of them want to be liked (at least it seems that way).

Do you think any of them regret joining forces?

Wade and Bosh definitely not.

LBJ maybe. He deals with a lot more in my opinion. I am sure he has some regrets joining forces with the best player or second best player in the league (Wade). His legacy took a hit whether you want to admit it or not. If he truly did this for the championships, he has got to be thinking... damn why the hell didn't I join Chicago? LOL.

He will be the last person to get the blame. He needs the ball more. They knew he wasn't a Dwight Howard or Shaq or some one could dominate with out the ball. He doesn't pick up garbage points or lots of offensive rebounds. They need to incorporate him into the game more. When he plays well, the Heat win. When LBJ and Wade have 70 percent of the points, they lose. If they play more team ball, they will be deadlier than they already are.


When Wade and LBJ take turns shooting, no one cares about anyone else on the court except them two. It becomes predictable and not that effective. They will get it together and win a championship before it is said and done.

NetsPaint
02-27-2011, 09:13 PM
I don't think Wade does. He already won a ring and he stayed with the same team.

If Bosh was looking for more fame, then he might have blew that, but he might have not ever cared about that with his signing.

LeBron was always hated by a lot. Only reason I can see him regretting it is a lot of people not looking at it as "the LeBron show" anymore since he's playing with Wade and Bosh.

They have a good record, so I don't see them in regretting mode now.

It all depends on what their 'moves' do to the next CBA agreement. There's a cadre of NBA owners who hate what Lebron's departure signifies for other blossoming stars and even more owners that dislike the consolidation of power onto one team - UNLESS they get a larger portion of the revenue. On top of that, the decisions made by the "big 3 in Miami" may impact an entire generation of NBA players.
