-Wade is on severe decline, will be a complete shell of the man who got Lebron to join him in 2010
-Lebron at this point only cares about rings and the chance to get more, not playing with friends
-Bosh will be a FA and could conceivably leave or join him in LA as well (assuming Bosh does not demand max)
-Future is much brighter with Kobe and a couple top FA's than it is with aging Wade and an OK Bosh
-Lebron wants to be a billionaire athlete and wants to increase his global popularity. No place is better than LA especially because of the hispanic and asian market.
-LA can offer Lebron a max offer. Can also make another big offers to up to 2 top FA's like Carmelo and Kobe.
“We would basically, money-wise, be able to sign the top free agent – maybe even two."
If Nash retires, cap room opens up another $10m which means they can sign close to 3 top FAs...pretty appealing.
-If the Heat do not get another ring this year or next, it will be very hard to convince Lebron to come back as he is in his prime and refuses to waste it away.
