LeBron, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh could all play together if they take salary cuts

You've probably heard this before, but LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are all interested in playing on the same team together. But could it ever happen?

Well, yes. At least two of these guys could wind up on the same team together with max contracts. But all three, that's not possible.

However, what if all three guys took a salary cut so they could all play together? In reality, it might make a lot of sense. Michael Jordan kept his salary relatively low (considering he was the greatest player ever) for years so the Bulls could keep solid talent around him, and it paid off since he won six championships and made money hand-over-fist in endorsements. If LeBron, Wade and Bosh all play together and win championships, just think of the endorsement money that could flow in for all of them. It would definitely far surpass the $4 million a year or whatever they lose by taking a salary cut. Plus, all these guys are richer than hell already. Why not play together?

It probably won't happen, but it's fun to think about. And if these guys really want to do it, they can.
