The Dwyane Wade Situation. Team up with LeBron a possibility?

You can’t help think of Miami when you think of Dwyane Wade since he’s been one of the few loyals to remain in the same team from the start of his career.

At a time when NBA is increasingly becoming a business with players being treated more like commodities, to look at players who have served with one team for the entire duration of their careers makes for an eye-opening experience.  LeBron James, widely regarded as the best contemporary NBA player, moved from Cleveland Cavaliers to Miami Heat, which offered him a far more lucrative deal.
