I'm still shocked Florida and to a lesser extent Tampa don't get top quality free agents. Miami is a fun place to live for 20 to 30 somethings and they pay so little tax. We've seen a few people go there over the years, like Pavel Bure, but still. Why do you think the Big 3 really went there in the NBA?
Bure had no choice, he was traded. And when guys hits UFA status they are already near 30 and want to be on a good team.
The team and organisation and more important for these guys because they are never ''home'' and when they are they have to get ready for the next game.
When the vacation start they all go back home or in a nice resort.
