Here’s everything you need to know for Game 7:
Here are my two cents:
Much like I alluded to earlier in the series, this series (and by extension, tonight) might be the last time we see LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh play together.
I think that regardless of the outcome tonight, (but especially if the Heat lose) it’s time to blow up the Big Three. The first reason is age — Dwyane Wade is 31. Bosh is 29. While LeBron is a (comparatively) youthful 28.
With age comes increased risk of injury, and lost of explosion, two elements that Dwyane Wade has exhibited profoundly this year. Wade’s knee has been a question mark for the past three months. And even before his knee injury, it was clear that Wade had lost a step (though of course, Gary Neal would disagree), and while Wade is still an elite shooting guard, he’s not 2006 Wade — he’s a 31 year old Wade starring in Dove commercials. No doubt, Dwyane Wade’s a leader and a Heat icon, but in the age of a new collective bargaining agreement with stiffer penalties for luxury tax offenders, paying an aging superstar $17.18 million a year is simply not a good basketball decision.
