Listening to Miami Heat team president Pat Riley and owner Micky Arison’s public statements, there’s little-to-no reason to believe that LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh won’t be hooping in South Beach for the foreseeable future. Arison feels extremely confident that the Big Three will all re-sign this summer. Per the Palm Beach Post:
Based on everyone’s comments throughout the season, everything points toward LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh staying in Miami beyond this season. All three are on long-term deals with the freedom to opt out after this year.
The most recent indication that those three will stay, be it through not opting out or by opting out and signing longer contracts, is from owner Micky Arison. When asked Monday by 790 The Ticket to give a percentage chance of keeping them with the Heat, he responded, “100 percent.”
Arison also was asked about the biggest challenge to resigning the Big Three.
“I hope it’s not gonna be a challenge at all,” he said. “We’ll see. Our challenge right now is the Charlotte Bobcats.”
