As of late, there has been a growing concern the Miami Heat’s big three of forward LeBron James, guard Dwyane Wade and big man Chris Bosh will soon be parting ways.
It was once thought there was virtually no chance any of the three would be leaving but that line of thinking has certainly changed. James is expected to entertain a return to the Cleveland Cavaliers where they have put together a much more talented roster than the one he left in 2010. They have since added an all-star in point guard Kyrie Irving, the number one overall pick of the 2011 Draft and two other top picks, forward Anthony Bennett and the top pick of last month’s draft, swingman Andre Wiggins. They also have a pair of fourth-overall selections in guard Dion Waiters and big man Tristan Thompson and still have one of James’ favorite teammates, big man Anderson Varejão.
If James does leave, Bosh is expected to entertain the idea of leaving with the Houston Rockets in hot pursuit.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, who appeared on Fox Sports Live on Monday evening, Bosh told the Rockets, “I want to be in Miami, I want to play with LeBron.”

Of course, if James does decide to join the Cavaliers, that could quickly change Bosh’s mind about playing in Miami.
Bosh put up 16.2 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals per game while shooting 51.6% from the field, 33.9% from three and 82.0% from the free trow line.
