Although LeBron James has left for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chris Bosh re-signed for the next five years. With Bosh and Wade, the Heat will still be a respectable team for the next few years. Adding another piece will be a priority for Miami’s management, but in a weak Eastern Conference, the Heat can still be successful with Erik Spoelstra at the helm.

After James darted to Cleveland, Miami's salary cap space widened significantly. With the move, Wade can make a large amount of money in his upcoming contract. Even though he is 32 years old and injuries have began to deteriorate his athleticism, Wade possesses the leverage in contract talks because the big free agents have been signed. This could be Wade’s last contract, so securing financial stability could be a main concern for Wade.

With Micky Arison and Pat Riley at the top, the Miami organization has been one of the most consistent in the entire NBA over the 2000s. The organization is well-run and well-respected around the league, and staying in this stable environment has to be a priority for Wade as he approaches retirement.

Even though LeBron James joined Wade in South Beach and took over as the team’s best player, Wade will forever be the face of Miami’s franchise. Known to be one of the best shooting guards ever, Wade has performed at a high level on and off of the court, and Heat fans have taken notice since his arrival in 2003.

There has been much discussion lately over superstars staying with one team over the course of their career or changing teams in chase of championships. Wade has remained loyal to Miami his whole career, while others in the league have left teams and been labeled as “ring chasers.” It would be a true accomplishment for Wade if he stays in Miami for the remainder of his playing days, ending his illustrious career playing for only one team.
