Miami Heat: Why Big 3 NBA Trade Rumors Are Ridiculous

If the Miami Heat do not win an NBA championship this year, there's a chance the Big Three of Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James could no longer be together. 

I still can't understand why that would be so.  The Heat are about to finish the second year with the Big Three.  They have made back-to-back finals and are constantly in the hunt for the second banner to be raised at American Airlines Arena. 

Articles such as this one suggest that the Heat should deal with the Big Three. 

This shouldn't be taken seriously.  Wade, Bosh and James have developed chemistry over time and have fed off of each other. 

After all, there can be as much talent on a team, but there needs to be a sense of chemistry and knowing how to play with one another.  The Heat have seemed to understand how important these three players are to the success of the team.

James takes care of business throughout the game through aggressively driving to the rim but also with the capability of hitting outside shots.  Wade has been with the Heat through thick and thin.  He's been with the team through a championship and also a league-worst record of 15-67 in the 2007-08 season. 

Bosh is the guy that can hit the big jump shot.  He attacks the glass as well as any big man on the team, and his play in the post has improved through the years. 

If there is a trade deal to be made, Bosh will most likely be the one to go. 

Potential offseason acquisitions could include guys like Steve Nash, Jason Terry, Ray Allen and Greg Oden.  


Also, the Heat will be interested in developing a better bench in the draft as well as a center. 

This still wouldn't be the best move if the Heat have to give up a guy like Bosh to get an older Nash, Terry or Allen.  He's young, versatile and will be more productive in a longer 82-game season. 

There's no reason to trade any of the Big Three even if the Heat don't win a title this year.  These guys mean too much to the team, and there's no reason to start rebuilding once again.  James and Wade are obviously two top guys in the NBA, and the need for Bosh was certainly evident in the series against Boston

Don't deal any of the Big Three just yet.  There is still time to build up a legacy in South Beach. 

It would certainly be difficult for the Heat to win a championship without one of the Big Three. 

If anything, add one of those listed guys mentioned above to make the Heat that much stronger.
