Bosh and Wade hang out together last night, Riley sneaks in meeting with LeBron's agent

[caption id="attachment_1742" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Why not keep the good times going in Miami?"][/caption] Some extremely curious news emerged late last night out of Chicago. Not only did Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade eat dinner together to discuss what happened during the first day of free agency but Pat Riley was able to quietly have a preemptive meeting with Leon Rose, LeBron James’ agent, the night before the Heat are scheduled to pitch their grand scheme to James. It began with Wade itching to break his self-imposed Twitter exile and then Bosh chiming in with…
I'm starving and ready for dinner. Grabbing some food with close friends... Maybe we'll discuss everything that happened today.
But the next update from Bosh was even more juicy.
Just had dinner w @dwadeofficial. Great way to end day 1 of #freeagency although it feels like someone is missing....
The picture above was included with an empty seat between the two good friends, an obvious reference to LeBron (or a decent second option could have been Riley). Is it the ultimate tease or a sign that these three really are serious about not just hanging out together but laying down the foundation for a dynasty run of multiple rings? Meanwhile, Riley and his Heat entourage were talking business at a Chicago hotel when in walks Rose, James’ agent…
Riley leads a group that includes Managing General Partner Micky Arison and Andy Elisburg, senior vice president/assistant general manager of basketball operations. They gathered Thursday evening near the far right corner in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel lounge. The atmosphere was casual. Riley and members of his group were barely audible from a distance of six-feet away. The discussion was certainly 
about Friday's meeting with James. When approached, Riley asked for a moment while he continued to conduct business. Shortly after two members of Riley's party called it a night, Leon Rose, James' agent, entered the room and joined Riley and Elisburg. More than likely, Rose will participate in today's meeting with the Heat, but apparently neither side could wait. So why the rush? Rose and Riley talked for nearly 45 minutes. Their conversation ended around 12:20 A.M.
Finally, here was the last Twitter update from Wade last night…
You only get one july 1st. Had a blast but glad the first day has came and went. Gotta get some rest 2morrows another big day.
