Report: LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh Discussed Playing Together For Heat

Of all the many wacky scenarios that have been discussed this summer, the one that's probably the scariest for other NBA teams is the one that has LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all playing for the same team next year. 

So if you're a fan of an NBA team other than the Miami Heat, this ESPN report should scare you.

Sources close to the situation said Monday night that three of the biggest names in basketball -- Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James -- met over the weekend in Miami to seriously discuss their futures, with a focus on the increasingly plausible possibility of those three teaming up with Wade's Heat.

Before you freak out, though, understand that there are a lot of hoops to jump through. James is reportedly still non-committal about where he'll end up next year, and the Heat do not currently possess enough cap room to give all three guys maximum contracts (though trading Michael Beasley would do the trick).

However, the three players are supposedly confident all the logistics can be worked out.

But sources told that James, Wade and Bosh all expressed confidence at the meeting that contractual complexities to make this ambitious triple signing work can be achieved, although it was not immediately clear if all three players would receive an equal amount or if one or two would receive the max. Another variable is whether Bosh would be willing to sign with the Heat outright or if he wants to hold out for a sign-and-trade.
