Micky Arison: 100 percent chance Heat keep LeBron, Wade and Bosh
Miami Heat owner Micky Arison believes there is a 100 percent chance the team keeps LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh next season.
James, Wade and Bosh have the ability to opt out of their contracts and become free agents, where they could seek contracts from other teams. But Arison believes the team has an excellent chance of retaining all three players, who have combined to lead the Heat to three straight NBA Finals and back-to-back championships since joining forces.
According to the Palm Beach Post, when asked Monday by 790 The Ticket to give a percentage chance of keeping the “Big Three” with the Heat, Arison responded, “100 percent.”
Arison also said he hoped “it’s not gonna be a challenge at all” to keep the players together.
Earlier this season, LeBron said he couldn’t see himself leaving Miami. If the players opt out of their current deals, it could be to sign longer-term deals with the Heat to ensure more security.
Pat Riley and Heat fans everywhere are hoping that Arison’s words will reflect the future. I know I can’t see LeBron going elsewhere.
