Trade Lebron, Bosh or Wade?
 
If your Miami you pay a pretty big tax. That tax can become unmanageable if you are a tax paying team for 2 of 5 years and then it kicks into super-tax (for lack of a better word) where they have to pay with their first born children.

If you were Miami, and you had to cut salary, how would you do it? Trade LBJ, Bosh or Wade?

Or would you do something else altogether different to cut salary.

The inevitable Bosh trade rumours should start anyday now, but I'm not sold its the best way to go for them.

Aren't they all potential expirings? Could bring some interest from some tanking teams.

Trade Wade. CB is the only bigman that commands respect offensively on the Heat.

If they would trade Wade, Lebron would leave too

Winning cures everything - I can see all 3 taking less if need be to help the team and stay together. All 3 will make a lot more in endorsements if they stay together anyways and keep winning - especially in China where LBJ is hitting them hard with marketing. If they value winning AND money, imo it's more advantageous to stay put.

In reality, Arison has already stated awhile ago that money and the repeater tax will not be a hindrance to resigning all 3. Something to keep in mind, Arison, the stadium, the franchise itself does not have to pay any state taxes plus the TV money they have coming in may not be on the Lakers level but it's pretty damn good- (and this year everyone is going to be watching to see if the Heat will 3peat, rooting for them to get knocked out I'm sure).

IMO Wade will retire a Heat, Arison would be hung if he traded LBJ and Bosh is clutch and spreads the floor for the other 2. They're all dependant on each other.

I'd trade Bosh, because Wade is retiring with the Heat and if Miami tried to move him Lebron would leave. Personally they should try to do a sign and trade by adding picks with Bosh to acquire Kevin Love as he wants out of Minnesota. (I hate Miami with a passion and never want to see this happen, but if they want to get better, this is the move for them. Personally, I hope there franchise falls apart soon because I hate the majority of players, coaches and management. Plus, they don't have true fans, just a bunch of bandwagon assholes.)

Uhm, tell my why Bosh would want to go there since he would have to agree? Besides, we all know Love is going to LaLa land.

If I'm the Heat I trade Wade. I used to think Bosh would be gone first, but Wade is looking his age +2 seasons for all the playoff games he's played.

love on the heat, given his range and rebounding, would be spectacular, if it wasn't for the defence. Bosh is crucial to their defence, and has gotten really better at it since leaving tdot. Love would be a detriment to what really won their championships, and most if not all championships ever won, in defence.

They aren't trading Lebron, that shouldn't even be discussed. I doubt teams would give up a lot for Wade given his injury concerns, so that leaves Bosh.

Although Bosh is really the key, besides Lebron, to Miamis small ball attack, in being able to bring centers out to the 3 point line, open up the lane, hedge hard on screen and rolls etc. he is replaceable because with LBJ and Wade in the lineup, Miami can excel at any style of play. They will have to downgrade at that position, but it'd help them get better at other positions with the money saved from having to pay Bosh the max again.

It'll be really interesting to see if MIA goes in a different direction this off season with Bosh leaving, as I cant see them not re-signing the other two.

If the Heat are trying to get under the luxury tax (and by all reports they are), acquiring Love doesn't help them with their financial situation. They need a much cheaper option, like Faried.

Wade would be the one to trade, but unless there getting another potental allstar in return (which they wouldn't) lebron would prob considering leaving for another team.

Wade and his knees are done, he just turned 32 today and is getting up there in age. Unlike other players that can still play till their mid and later 30's, wades been having knee issues his entire carear and prob will not be the same player in 1-3 years from now.......

Wade for Rondo and Green, I don't think Boston even cares anymore.
