It's time for the Miami Heat to break up the Big 3

Win or lose, the Miami Heat need to break up the Big 3.

The contrived greatness constructed in South Beach never saw a day where they would accomplish so much and be a detriment to each other.

From a production standpoint, D-Wade is an aging version of LeBron James. They both need the ball in their hand in order to be effective. They both seem to defer to the other from time to time and their plus-minus in the NBA Finals supports this truth. D-Wade benefits from James' presence, opening up lanes for him and giving him room to work in, but does very little for LeBron.

Chris Bosh is not the front line force the Heat need. He is not physical; he is not tough; he is not a great defender; he is not built like Wade and James. He is not a good fit. He is a role player that is getting paid like a superstar.

Win or lose, I can see the Miami Heat breaking the Big 3 up after this season. Even though Wade and James are physically similar, the most likely candidate to go is Chris Bosh. D-Wade and King James are lions and play with uncommon ferocity.

Which one of the three is not like the other?
