The Magic will have plenty of cap room for you, LeBron — maybe as much as $36 million. You won't have to share the stage with Dwyane Wade in Miami or Dwight Howard in L.A. Plus, look at the biggest bonus of heading to Orlando: Your kids can live at Disney World.
No reason to leave

Money and titles. That's the real currency superstars dream about.
The NBA's labor deal still encourages a superstar to stay with his current team by allowing that franchise to pay more to their free-agent star than any of the other 29 teams. So if money matters to LeBron James in 2014, he can haul in more in his next contract by staying in Miami.
James has won a title in Miami — that's a key reason why he exited Cleveland, no prospects of winning a championship there. Guess what: The Heat are my pick to win the title in June. In fact, LeBron might have collected three titles by the time his contract is up in July 2014. If that happens why take his talents out of South Beach?
