No way those three players were going to choice a small market.
Miami,NJ(Now Brooklyn),NY & Chicago were the teams that were options for all 3. Chicago wanted Wade and James, as did NJ, NY wanted James + whomever would come with him. Miami wanted all 3 of them and got them.
Wade was seriously thinking about Chicago but ownership kinda ****ed that one up since it was known Jerry is a cheap SOB. plus they didn't want Bosh and couldn't sign all 3 so Miami was the best choice for them.
