What's next for the Heat's Big 3?

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.

What's this poo about the Heat being "old"? These excuses are pitiful.

 

Dwayne Wade is 32, Chris Bosh is 30, and Lebron is 29.

 

Tim Duncan is 38, Manu Ginobili is 36, Tony Parker is 32, and these guys flat out embarrassed the Heat.

Noah has been recruiting Anthony apparently.  It's a long shot but if the Bulls get Carmelo...

 

D. Rose, Butler, James, Anthony, Noah

 

They'd likely have to figure something out with Taj though...apparently everyone there is trade consideration outside of D. Rose.

I say they all go their separate ways but who knows.  It's not that they lost the FInals but they got stomped out.  Hard to watch Wade these days and I've always liked him.  He should hang them up before his body/game deteriorates even more.  Lebron was all alone and the look on his face said alot to me.  I wish we could see him in Purple and Teal (he'd look great in the uniform) but that's a longshot/not gonna happen.  I don't really care what happens with Bosh.  He seems like a nice guy but he's way to o soft to be 7ft tall.

No one really said they are old.

 

We are saying that Wade's body is giving out on him....he is injured and hurting every year.

 

Bosh has become a one trick pony (sitting on the 3 pt line)....and he was never a real superstar in the first place.

 

If Melo does not come to Miami, I will bet you that LeBron is gone.

Wade had surgery way back in 2002 while he was still at Marquette to remove his meniscus so he wouldn't have to get rehab and affect his 2003 draft stock. So while he's actually 32, his knees act more like 42, hence the reason he didn't play much in the regular season. It doesn't help that he has never changed his playing style.

 

Lebron and Bosh aren't old. And for all the flack he's going to get for this series Lebron still put up his regular numbers. It's the bench that was terrible. Rashard Lewis, Shane Battier, Ray Allen, Udonis Haslem are all years removed from being effective NBA players, and the Spurs, meanwhile, could roll out effective bench players night in and night out that would just wear Miami down leading to what we ended up seeing in the last three games.

 

Spoelstra's offense took Bosh from a star PF in Toronto who could put up 20 and 10 a night to a 6'11 small forward who just shoots 3 pointers all the time.

 

Hopefully, this series will buck the trend of the "superteam" and GMs will put more of an emphasis on ball movement on offense and building quality depth on the bench in lieu of a bunch of max contracts. Alas, if this is the end of the Big 3, they still got to 4 straight finals and won 2 titles in that span, and every franchise will take that if they can get it.

It's done.

James ain't wasting his time there with Wade and Bosh. The only way he will stay is if Miami can get rid if those two scrubs.
