Heat's Arison Urged To Pay Luxury Tax To Keep Championship Team Together
Published July 11, 2013
PAY UP: In Ft. Lauderdale, Dave Hyde writes there is "no inkling" Arison "won’t pony up $33 million in luxury tax to keep his championship team together." Heat Fs LeBron James and Chris Bosh took $15M "less than they could have to sign" with the Heat, and G Dwyane Wade took $17M "less than he could have to re-sign." Hyde: "The point is, everyone has sacrificed something for this run. Arison has profited nicely from having the best show in American sports right now. ... There shouldn't be room for cheap here." Arison has been "a model owner." He made sure "everything was in place for a first-class team and he doesn't meddle in the basketball work." This will be "his lastest test" (SUN-SENTINEL.com, 7/11).
