Idea: Dwight for Lebron

I just mad an argument to my cousin that I think is legit. Sorry for this not benefiting the Lakers, but we'll be alright.

If I were Pat Riley, would this trade not balance the [expletive] out of my team and make so much sense!?!? Only reason it wouldn't be DWade is because he IS Miami. He's been your guy and gotten you a chip. (Plus I hate Lebron, in a respectful way) But this would solve both teams' problems, even though Miami looks to be a clear cut favorite these days.

I know it would NEVER happen but tell me this wouldn't be a good idea

From a value standpoint, yes it's as fair as you can get when trading superstars. Both in their prime, both can lead a team to the finals, and both fill the seats.

From a basketball standpoint, there are reasons why the deal makes sense.

But, from a competitive standpoint, there is no way Miami hands Orlando arguably the game's best player, no matter what the return. The only possible 1for1 trade Orlando can make that would represent an upgrade in talent, is likely the one you have suggested here. For Miami, they will be much better off watching Orlando trade Dwight to NJ, LA, or lose him in free agency, than to hand James over to their division rival.

Miami pulled off a coup in landing James. No way they hand him to Orlando simply because Orlando can't get its house in order, even if the return is Howard.

Now, Bosh for Howard? I suspect Miami wishes Orlando would agree to that deal.

No way! I still can't believe Bosh is getting a max contract! He should be taking less, not Wade. He's not even in the top 5 PFs in the league! (Love, Dirk, Pau, Amare, Aldrige) But thats a whole 'nother subject.....

Well, it would be Cleveland 2.0, but you know players would want to go there to play with him. And its not like he'd have a choice. He doesn't have a no trade clause.

A package of Bosh, Norris Cole, and Anthony is a pretty good offer from what I have seen out there.

Ive thought about this myself and if I was both teams I'd do it, we know Lebron can lead a team pretty deep by himself he's a big enough superstar that Orlando can build around, and for Miami the combo of Wade- Bosh-Dwight would be a lot better than their current big 3.

Orlando would never send Dwight across the state to Miami - no way in hell.

Miami is currently the top team in the league, why risk messing it up.

Also, D-Wade havent been playing up to his capabilities so far this season, and he really is a serious injury waiting to happen. I dont know why people only talk about Kobe being on the decline. Unlike Wade, Kobe is better suited for adjusting his game going forward, Wade's game is based on his speed and acceleration - when he loses that, the decline will be very steep.

If this trade happens, I'm convinced Miami is winning every title for the next few years.
