If they break it up they could lose everything. The logical guys to let go are Wade and/or Bosh, especially if Wade doesn't make a comeback. But if you let Wade go James is leaving as a FA, he's not the one to play solitary star else he'd still be a Cav.

That's all you need to know about that article..


I do see the Heat trying to shop Wade though.. Maybe not before the trade deadline but more than likely in the offseason. Unless of course Wade returns to the level of play he is know for. JMHO

There will be some 'creative finacing' come that time. Riley will yet again work his magic. Expect Wade and Bosh to both take the necessary haircuts. LeBron will be a max player, though.

Micky Arison loves winning. He's also worth 4 Billion. And as harsh as the repeater tax penalties will be, he aint penny pinching at the expense of breaking up Miami's core prematurely.

Wade goes from franchise player to injured bench warmer.

Dear Lebron, come lead the Suns back to the promised land after you're done winning your "not 7" championships for Miami. We have a decent core of players, but we're missing that franchise player go-to guy to continue to build around. That guy is Bron Bron.

lol Seriously though... I hope if the Heat do have to break up, the Suns can benefit from it some way or another. Star talent is hard to come by these days because of teams like the Heat hogging all of it.

We'll be fine. Riley knows what he's doing.

In all honesty, with Wade playing the way he is right now, how much worse of a team is the Miami Heat without him?

I'm sure there are plenty of guys waiting in kine to play with Lebron.

Wade for Kyrie Irving? Double FU to Cleveland

The Heat are never gonna shape Wade. I'm pretty sure it isn't Riley's style.

I would normally agree but 140 mil plus? All that money may make Arison to tell Riley to move one or two of those stars. No NBA team has ever been nearly that expensive.

The relationship between the Max salary a player can get paid and the Luxury/Salary cap is too close.

I know in an ideal world each team would have one Max player and a bunch of others, this is never going to happen.
