Clearly, the biggest question facing the Miami Heat this offseason is the decision on whether or not to break up the infamous Big Three. And while dismantling the core of a team that just won back-to-back championships seems foolish at face value, there are several reasons why Riley needs to at least consider making a change.
With the rest of the league gaining ground on the Heat, Miami has to figure out a way to improve this summer—staying dormant simply isn't an option. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are all but untouchable at this point, leaving Chris Bosh as the team's most valuable commodity.
If Bosh can be dealt for players who are a more ideal fit in Erik Spoelstra's schemes, then it may make sense to prematurely end the Big Three era in South Beach.
Perhaps even more importantly, James, Wade and Bosh all have the ability to be unrestricted free agents next summer: It may be wise to think about moving Bosh now in order to avoid the salary cap nightmare that could arise in July 2014.
