LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh headline what on paper is the greatest free-agent class ever. And while in most years, big free agents don't change teams, this year could be different.

Why? LeBron's Cavs have, once again, come up short in the playoffs. Wade's Heat team hasn't gotten past the first round since it won the title in 2006. Bosh's Raptors failed to make the playoffs again this year. So if they want to win a title, they may have to look elsewhere, or combine forces.
