Bosh Wade considering Free Agency individually

Yeah right..

Quote:
Even though Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh share an agent, they are not thinking about it as a package.

"I really am approaching it individually for each of my individual guys. It's not just Dwyane and Chris," he said. "The one thing is each deal is its own deal. For me, the mandate is that every deal is its own deal."

Yet Wade has made it clear that he would prefer to return to a Heat team that continues to feature South Florida mainstay Haslem.

"Certainly," Thomas said, "there are some realities that exist in connection with players you have."

Thomas equates this summer's free-agency class to 2000, when Grant Hill, Tracy McGrady, Tim Duncan, Eddie Jones and Brian Grant were on the market.

"But the interest is probably more heightened now, in part, because of the LeBron phenomenon," he said. "And I think, in general, media attention to this kind of thing is much greater now than it was back then."

Well Bosh basically said he would go where ever Lebron goes, which makes Bosh look like a...... Bitch.

Where did you even get that?
Any article that I've seen you would have to take completely out of proportion to get that conclusion :facepalm:

When has he ever said he would go where Lebron went, he's never insinuated that. In fact during an interview this past week he stated he hasn't spoken to Lebron all summer. Do i believe him, no. But still.

That's funny... LeBron/Wade/Bosh should look at that list long and hard to pick up a pattern. Hmmm... which guys on that list moved in FA, and which guys won championships?

He talked about how Lebron was the guy that was going to make the first domino fall. He would be an idiot if he had made his mind up before that domino falls, whether he ends up with Lebron or not. Not that he would have much of a chance to act on any decision anyway. He's not a big enough idiot to think that teams are going to do anything before that domino falls.

True - but Duncan had a pretty easy decision to make if he wanted to feel confident about winning. If only we could have gotten anywhere close to that sort of situation here.

Wade will likely have the same sort of outlook as Duncan, since he was able to see his team build something very early in his career.

Its true he has never actually said that but he has hinted it (during his hosting Mike & Mike). Still I would like if Bosh doesn't team up with Lebron because the NBA will be over until 2020. I hope Bosh believes he can be the star or the franchise player for a championship team (in the right condition he could be) so the NBA can be saved.

Good point... It would probably be easier for Bosh to stay if we had The Admiral on board.

Are there any good examples of top FA's staying with shit teams and going on to win a championship?
