This is great news if you are a fan of the Heat. However, it is not so great news if you are tired of seeing Miami in the NBA Finals (team has made the last four Finals). Wade and Bosh are taking less money, which probably means that LeBron James will be signed for the max deal that he wanted. That deal may only last 1-2 years, though.
Wade is definitely a shell of his former self, but he still manages to be pretty productive. After all, he did average 19 points per game this past season. Not bad for a player who many people think is washed up. As for Mr. Bosh, well, he put up 16.2 points per game this season.
As good as Bosh and Wade are, James is the key to the puzzle. He is the best player in the league and who knows how the Heat would do without his services. Depending no the deal that King James receives, his services in South Beach may not last that much longer, but fans have to be grateful for what he has done so far.
Miami has already won two championships and will more than likely compete for yet another title in the 2014-15 season. Wade and Bosh are back. Point guard Shabazz Napier was drafted. LeBron James being signed is probably next.
