07:14 AM ET 08.20 | Over the course of his career, Dwyane Wade has played more than 600 games over the course of 10 NBA seasons in Miami, and done just about all an NBA could do. Though [Wade] said he intends to stay with the Heat beyond next season, he did not rule out opting out of his contract. He would make $20 million in 2014-15 and $21.5 million in 2015-16 if he does not opt-out either preceding summer. It's possible he could take less money in exchange for more years. "We'll see," Wade, 31, said Friday of the opt-out. "You have to figure out what's best for yourself and what's best for the team and then you come up with that answer." ... Of adding to his game, Wade said: "The only thing left for me to do is become Mike Miller and shoot a lot of threes." But he shot just 17 for 66 on threes last season.

Of course he can guarantee! It's his life and he knows what to do w/ it.

You're just saying these crap now so that you can get a bigger contract.

Riley probably hopes DWade takes an extra big pay cut or walks so he can offer LBJ the moon to stay in Miami.

Wade's had his run now it's time to let the king rule the roost on his own without sharing the spotlight with anyone...

Nowhere in the article does it mention him leaving Miami. Opting out of his current contract is different than leaving the team. He isn't going anywhere.

None of the big three are going anywhere. All three if them will opt out of their contracts. All three will take a pay cut again like in the summer of 2010 in order to stay together and build a better team around them. Theses guys are already set financially for the rest of their lives. Money isn't the driving factor for players who have had careers like them and who are in the prime of their careers. Dwight "left" 30 million on the table (plus an extra year) in order to be where he was most comfortable and thought he had the best chance to compete for a title. That's what's most important to these guys.

He didn't leave $30 million on the table. He did give up the most from the 3 for about $8-10 million. And only Lebron will get max from the 3 in their next contract.

This site is effed up! You can't click on a quote. You can't go to the next page. And you can't see what you posted because when you press confirm it takes you to some gibberish page...

C'mon interns! Get this fix ASAP!
