on the contrary, putting us in a bind? u know the cap is about to jump up in a year right? its smarter to lock wade in now at a price u can live with. not only that, imagine if wade plays 65-70 games this year on his current deal. now his stock just went back up while the new higher cap kicks in. NOW guess how much u gotta pay? see that?
as for bind... we have whiteside (obvious future of the team) justise (question mark but likely future of the team) dragic, wade, bosh, birdman, napier (?), ennis (?), tyler (?), mcrob. everyone with a question mark has high potential AND is very young. white side and justise are obviously young as well. the future is very well within our grasp. if napier ennis justise and tyler put in work this off-season (which theyve already shown they're doing) our future is BRIGHT. yall looking at our team like we're still old. a lot of fresh legs out there with high potential. why are you so worried about our future? is there some big FA trade we're going to miss out on? is there some kid in college who is absolutely going to be the next kobe lebron or jordan? i dont get this method of thinking.
We have a brighter future than most, but the goal should always be to contend and in this day in age there's not a lot of room for error in order to. I don't want to jeopardize losing Whiteside after next year when he comes off the books or miss out on the likes of a Durant. I'm no salary cap expert and that all may still be feasible while retaining Wade, but I have to imagine much of the hesitancy occurring is due to similar deliberations by the front office.
