The Miami Heat carved out a permanent place in NBA history when they signed Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James to contracts and started winning championships. The Heat dynasty is already ranking among the very best in basketball history and proves that the true greats of the game win championships in bunches.
Because of their ability to really pioneer the creation of a dream team, many are believing that the Heat can add Carmelo Anthony to the bunch and evolve their Big 3 into a Fearsome Foursome.
As Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald points out though, Chris Bosh isn’t sold on the idea of Melo coming to Miami not because he doesn’t want him but rather because it simply has not been discussed at all by the Big 3.
But Chris Bosh on Thursday denied an ESPN report that the team’s top players have already started to explore ways to create enough salary cap space to pull this off. In fact, Bosh said he, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have never once discussed the scenario of adding Anthony to the mix or how it can be accomplished. (It would require monumental pay cuts by all four.)
“I think that’s very, very unlikely,” Bosh said of such a Big Four scenario, with Anthony as the fourth.
Of course, one solid reason why Bosh could be against this idea is that he’d be the odd man out if it were truly to happen. The Heat just cannot fit their Big 3 plus Carmelo Anthony under the cap or on their books which means either a reduced salary for him — more so than the others — or an exit altogether.
The bottom line though is that the Heat won’t be adding Melo and the only big name player they coul dpossibly think of adding or finding a way to fit is Kevin Love, which is something else that won’t be happening.
