The Miami Heat lost LeBron James in the offseason, but they moved fast to replace him with a slew of other free agents and past players.
One of the players that were used to replace LeBron James was Chris Bosh, as he received the biggest contract out of all the players that the Heat brought back, and that’s something that is going to put a lot of pressure on his upcoming season and may end up blowing up in Miami’s face.
According to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel, the Miami Heat may end up getting bitten by the contract they gave Chris Bosh as he might not live up to max deal he was given.
The real contract to keep an eye out on is Bosh’s. Can he play well enough to attract free agents in 2016, or will his salary weigh down the Heat in the fourth and fifth years of his deal? It is a question without an immediate answer.
Bosh has a lot to live up to with his new deal, as he’s the de factor leader of the Miami Heat and has a max contract to live up to. That’s the question surrounding the Heat, as the team wasn’t really showing off Bosh as a leader in the past, but with LeBron gone and Wade aged, it’s Bosh’s team to lead — and it’s yet to be known if that’s the best thing for Miami.
