Both three-time NBA champions (2006, 2012, 2013), Wade and Haslem were yet to be re-signed by their maiden team as of posting.

A couple of days ago, Wade declared: "If I'm playing the game of basketball this year, it'll be in a Miami uniform," following rumors of a Chinese invasion. Before anyone from his camp can even confirm the move, Heat and basketball fans already had mixed emotions—but mostly positive—about the encouraging development.
