    Why Lebron James should bolt Miami in 2014?

    Congratulations Lebron!! You just won your second title with the Miami Heat. But can they do it again. With league finally figuring their weakness (size), the Miami will most likely face a tougher road to the finals with Derrick Rose coming back, Paul Pierece, KG and Jason Terry going the Nets and the Knicks getting Amare and Bargnani off the bench.

    So my question is: are the Miami good enough to get Lebron more rings than Jordan?

    The answer is no. With Dwayne Wade's knee issues and Chris Bosh's inconsistency in the playoffs makes Miami, it will be hard for Lebron to get to 7. Therefore, he should take his talent to a new city even if he wins his third championship ring.

    So what teams make sense? How about Cleveland?

    The Cavaliers have a young point guard in Kyrie Irving, first pick in the draft in Anthony Bennett Dion Waiters, an improving Tristan Thompson and possibly an all star in Andrew Bynum. Would this be enough to take Lebron over the hump? Possibly. They're a young team with lots of potential. However, they cannot offer what the Los Angeles Lakers can offer.

    The Los Angeles Lakers only have Steve Nash on contract. If they trade Steve Nash for an expiring, they will go from the league's highest team payroll to lowest with $0 on their payroll. With Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire, Pau Gasol, Zach Randolph and many others Lebron could potentially HANDPICK which superstar free agents he wants to play with, in other words a new superteam. He might not get another chance to do this.

    Ppl act like Lebron James is just someone who hops from team to team. He had ABSOLUTELY good reason to leave Cleveland and he gave them 7 years of elite level play in the process. He did it all himself and basketball is a team sport.....thats why he left.

    If he leaves Miami Heat for a team other than Cleveland (or New York lol ), then he honestly is just a title hopper.

    Idk why the Heat are so hesitant to get a Center, I mean they passed on Ezeli, & won't sign a Center in FA if their lives depended on it

    There are alot of fans of opposing teams out there right now that envy the Miami Heat to where their opinion regarding this topic should not be taken seriously.

    If Chicago amnesties Boozer, the Bulls may have enough cap space to get Lebron.

    What about the Lakers? He could maybe team up with Kobe and another superstar.

    I've been trying to avoid this topic but....

    Sweet Jesus you people just love to overrate Cleveland's young talent. If they were as good as you're claiming OP, then they'd likely have Lamarcus Aldridge or Kevin Love right now. But how did that turn out? Only the Cavs organization think they're that good. Nobody else does.

    Listen, I wouldn't blame LeBron one bit if he went to CLE to try to win a title for those fans, because they sure deserve it given the misery they've been through as a sports town. But good luck actually accomplishing that, because Kyrie has yet to have a healthy season, Bynum is another knee injury waiting to happen, and they aren't going to attract stable options via free agency based on their free agent history.

    As for the Lakers, there's nothing they can offer that Miami can't. Don't forget, Miami's got money coming off the books in 2014 as well and they have yet to use their amnesty clause, something LA's already used up. Oh, and the Heat have Pat Riley who's done a great job holding up his end of the bargain.

    If Haslem and Mike Miller pick up their options, the Heat will have 10 million on the books. What people are missing here is that the Lakers have no one signed past next year so $0 in total payroll. He could pick any 2 free agents he chooses.

    Not convinced that's going to be the case.....but in the end Miami will be in just as good a position as them. It'll depend on what LeBron's priorities are going forward after next year.

    Lebron won't go anywhere, Wade isn't nearly as bad as people are making out and neither is Bosh. Besides, both are valuable trade bait. Wade had the highest PER of any off-guard during the regular season.

    If anything, Bosh will be traded with a pick or bench player to bring in a competent center. They have so many guys coming off the books during next years offseason that they could make some nice moves.

    Ray Allen
    Joel Anthony (P)
    Shane Battier
    Chris Bosh (ETO)
    Mario Chalmers
    Udonis Haslem (P)
    LeBron James (ETO)
    James Jones
    Rashard Lewis
    Mike Miller (P)
    Dwyane Wade (ETO)

    All of those guys are free agents after next season^

    Gortat is an appealing option out of the FA pool. But if they call around offering a S&T that packages Bosh and something else, they'll get a bite for most big men.

    I reckon Wade will be with Miami until he dies.

    Kyle Lowry will be a FA as well, I like the idea of him in Miami.

    The thing is that Lebron could pick the players he wants to play with. He won't be limited to Wade and Bosh.
