Do they all stay and add to the bench or do thy blow it up?
Where do they all land?

Will there be another Big 3 built somewhere else?

They should blow it up in my opinion. They can't win another championship with the core of that team anymore. Not only did they just lose the finals they got exposed as well. As far as another big 3, look at Houston. They will have a chance this offseason to get Melo. Thing's are going to get real interesting this summer.

Building teams with only free agents may be new, but super teams have been around since Bill Russell's day

 

We just need MJ to suit up again and convince some guys to come play with him

I personally would love to see Miami collapse as they don't have the bench talent if they lose any key pieces. Put them in the cellar of the southeast for a while.

Saw a tweet last night where 2 people "in the know" about Lebron had 2 vastly different opinions. I'm assuming one was he's staying, one is he's leaving. I never thought he'd leave, but after the loss and seeing his team collapse/get old around him...I think it's finally a possibility.

 

Plan A would still be to bring in Carmelo. Hell, kick Wade to the curb or make him take a substantial pay-cut. Then, bring in an actual PG to roll with LBJ/Melo/Bosh.

 

Plan B. Cleveland or whatever other team would be seen as a potential landing spot.

I'd be shocked if LeBron stayed. Wade is probably done and Bosh just isn't an elite player. I think that if he leaves Houston would be the most logical fit with two superstars in Harden and Howard already there.

Houston makes sense......LeBron needs to go find a team with a few more superstars so he can try and win another championship.

 

For as great a talent he is, he just cannot lead a team to the championship while being "the man".

Yep, the Clippers would make sense as well but he said before Sterling was the reason he didn't go there in 2010 and with all this stuff going on now I don't think he would want to go there.

Disbanded IMO. The Spurs ate them apart and exposed any kind of legacy. Miami was just a band-aid.

When LeBron didn't come out and say "I'm staying here" at the press conference I took it as he's gone. If James leaves I think it's obvious Bosh leaves as well.

 

However if they stay they need to focus on the C and PG position and not worry about Melo.

Unless James Harden substantially improves his defense I don't see Houston ever being more than a good regular season team.

 

As far as Miami goes, there's no way Wade opts out unless he's not interested in money, the finals exposed how far past his prime he is. Bosh will more than likely opt in I'd say, he seems to be happy there. LBJ is the only question imo and I have no idea what he will do. Their already terrible bench is going to be worse, as Battier is retiring, and I have a feeling Ray Allen will as well.

Bring back James, give Wade a Ginobili type role off the bench, get Bosh to play more inside.

Wade also has to develop a jumper to stay around. He is getting old and slow and his athleticism that he relied on to score is clearly not the same it used to be. Think Vince Carter, if he didn't form a better jumper he'd be retired or a bench warmer right now.

Wade should retire. He won't ever blame his body, he always will say he feels fine but he clearly isn't. Wade is done. If Wade retires you can pretty much figure Bosh will opt out and LeBron is as good as gone. Suck it Miami fans the show in south beach is now over.
