Here are my two cents:

Magic Johnson said on Wednesday

“I think what we may see is the end of this Big Three.  I think that things will change, no matter what happens. Things have to change with that team, because everybody has caught up to them now….you have to realize Derrick Rose is coming back for Chicago and they have cap space and they are probably going to make a move to get better. Indiana will try to get better, the Knicks will try to get better…”

Hearing what Magic had to say, it is apparent that Game 4 is more than “just” a must-win game for the Miami Heat.

It’s a do-or-die moment in the legacy of the Miami Heat.  If the Heat lose Game 4, they will most likely lose the series (no team has come back from a 1-3 deficit in the NBA Finals).  And if the Heat lose this series, it very well might end up being the last series The Big Three play together (at least The Big Three as we know it).

There have already been trade rumors about Chris Bosh and the Charlotte Bobcats.  I’ve talked about why trading Chris Bosh is probably a bad idea (he’s a unique player, a center with a superb mid-range jumper, who helps space the floor for the Heat).  But the bottom line is that Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade have declined considerably this season, and especially in the playoffs.  In the Miami Heat — Indiana Pacers series, Bosh averaged about four rebounds a game.  And while he’s currently averaging around eight rebounds a game against the San Antonio Spurs, Bosh is only averaging about 12 points a game.
