I just don't think that's the case but that doesn't at all mean that Bosh and Wade don't deserve credit for what they've contributed over the past 3 years.
It's not so much having a lesser view of Bosh and Wade as players, it's just the simple truth that they aren't these franchise guys anymore. Especially with Wade concerning his health.
Well clearly Bosh is not a superstar and Wade is not a superstar anymore. But I do think Bosh is/was a franchise guy, and I'm not sure if it matters anymore whether Wade is at that level since he has more than enough to contribute to his ideal role—at least until this crippled season, and I bet he comes back with a vengeance in enough playoff games to push them over.
I do think LeBron played on the most talented team in the NBA each time he won and the first year he lost. I think you are coming at it from a reasonable perspective, but I hate the way people twist themselves into knots with hypotheticals in these situations (#CP107)—now that LeBron won 2 championships with Bosh and Wade some people are saying "Well of COURSE he would have won it without Bosh and Wade, they aren't even that good". It's like no dude, he didn't do that, and it doesn't work that way.
