LOL so silly. Historic precedent show that, by and large, superstars generally stay with their teams.

Tim Duncan was sooo bound for Orlando nearly a decade ago, everyone thought. He'd go there with Grant Hill's broken leg and Tracy McGrady's traitor ass. Only he came to his senses and stayed with the Spurs. That worked out OK.

There are countless other examples. Is LeBron leaving Cleveland? Maybe. Is DWade gonna go? Maybe, maybe not. Is Bosh a goner? Possibly, but then again probably not.

Home teams can offer more money, and are often one of only a handful of teams with money to sign free agents. Some players are loyal and don't want to desert their teams.
