    Default Miami Herald:LeBron Heat's top choice, but won't risk wait

    Two people who spoke to the Heat said LeBron James is clearly the outside free agent most coveted by the Heat, but Miami does not want to risk losing out on other targeted stars by waiting too long. Re-signing Dwyane Wade remains the No. 1 priority.

    ``They're going to get a feel for who they have the best shot at and will craft their strategy accordingly,'' a source close to the Heat said. ``They will pursue more than one guy. James is their top choice, but if they get a yes from Chris Bosh or Amare Stoudemire, I'd be shocked if they told either to hold on so they can wait on LeBron'' -- unless Miami has strong reason to believe James is coming. ``If they get one of those three, they would feel confident they can keep Wade. Their biggest anxiety is losing Wade.''
    Though odds are against a James/Wade pairing, ``the way the Heat looks at it is how do you pass on a chance to try to get two of the three best players in the league?'' one source said. ``They raised the Michael Jordan/Scottie Pippen comparison.''

    The Heat believes Bosh could play center, and Bosh has talked about the appeal of playing with Wade. Miami's chances of signing Bosh would diminish if he is traded to the Lakers, but ESPN said Tuesday there have been no Raptors-Lakers talks.
    Wade and LBJ on the same team with a half decent group of role players would be unstoppable.

    Maybe... BC can work out a sign-n-trade with Miami to acquire Wade in exchange for Turkoglu. (haha!)

    I think LeBron is everyone's top choice.
