This wouldn’t be fair. According to Brian Windhorst and Marc Stein of ESPN, the Miami Heat are discussing the possibility of adding Carmelo Anthony to the mix in the offseason. The report goes on to say that the current New York Knicks All-Star would be brought on in addition to keeping LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. 

Sources told ESPN.com that Heat officials and the team’s leading players have already started to explore their options for creating sufficient financial flexibility to make an ambitious run at adding New York Knicks scoring machine Carmelo Anthony this summer in free agency.

The mere concept would require the star trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to all opt out of their current contracts by the end of the month and likely take further salary reductions in new deals that start next season to give Miami the ability to offer Anthony a representative first-year salary.

This would create one of the most electrifying super teams in the history of the NBA. As Stein and Windhorst point out, it would take all of Miami’s current big three to opt out of their deals and take less money in order to bring Anthony in. James and Anthony have been friends since their high school years, so there is definitely a link between the two.
