Miami Heat's star players LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade have put their futures at the club in doubt as they all may opt-out at the end of this season, according to ESPN.

The Heat sit top of the Eastern Conference and have won three games on to bounce while recently clinching the Southwest Division title with a winning percentage of 0.699.

However, there has been speculation that the three star athletes are in contention of leaving the club at the end of the campaign.

According to ESPN; James, Bosh and Wade can all opt-out at the end of the 2014, 2015 or 2016 season, as said in their current contract.

But Dwayne Wade recently spoke to ESPN and stated there isn't anything to worry about.

"I've been with the same organisation for now 11 years.

"We've won multiple championships, so it's no reason where I need to think about that yet. I'm not at a point where we are a bad team and now I'm really focused on just enjoying our quest to try to win." he said.

Meanwhile, Bosh and James answered a simple "True" when asked if they would remain at Heat next season, opening speculation.

Wade is the longest serving player out of the three for Heat stars, starting his career back in 2003, while both James and Bosh joined in 2010, and between the three players this season they have scored over 4,000 points with LeBron James leading the way with 1,871 points to his name.

Bosh, James and Wade have been the key successors to Heat's current campaign; power forward Chris Bosh has played the most games for Heat and has the best free-throw percentage for the Miami club at 0.821.

Dwayne Wade, meanwhile, produces on average 2.98 turnovers each game as well as scoring 19.8 points in each match.

While LeBron James tops the key stats for Erik Spoelstra's side hitting an average of 6.7 assists and 26.7 points per game, sitting third in the season's point rankings behind both Kevin Durant and Carmelo Anthony.

Since all three players were united in 2010, Erik Spoelstra's men have gone on to win the Division title for four consecutive years since 2011, the Conference title for three years in a row since 2011, and the Championship title for two consecutive years in 2012 and 2013.

Furthermore, at least one of these players has been listed in the NBA All Star Game from 2005 to 2014.

There is speculation that Miami Heat haven't looked as good as previous years and with San Antonio Spurs form currently hitting the records book, players may feel this could be their last year at the club.

But, if Miami Heat win the Championship this year then they'll make it a treble title as only three other teams have accomplished this in NBA history; The Boston Celtics, L.A Lakers and the Chicago Bulls; as all three players will be aiming to continue making history at Heat.
