New Salary Cap Suggests “The Big 3″ May Be Broken Up

miami heat the big 3The Miami Heat are facing more issues than just winning the Championship. According to The Palm Beach Post:
“The Big 3 is under contract through the 2014 post-season. But if the NBA emerges from this summer’s collective-bargaining negotiations with a hard salary cap, Commissioner David Stern said, it’s possible the Heat wouldn’t be able to keep all three superstars.
Chris Bosh and LeBron James signed $110.1 million contracts last summer while Wade signed for $107 million. The Heat likely wouldn’t be able to fit all three under a hard cap.
“That’s part of the negotiation,” Stern said before Game 1. “This is very complex. If there’s a will, we’ll be able to work all those issues out.”
The NBA, like the NFL, is headed to a lockout July 1 if players and owners cannot agree to a new CBA before the current one expires on June 30. Stern said owners and players will conduct a “full-blown bargaining session” today in Miami.”
Looks like the Miami Heat better win the Championship!
