UNDATED (AP) — The NBA’s free agency season starts at midnight Eastern time tonight. That’s when the NBA free agent market officially opens.

Just what LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade had in mind when they all opted out of their contracts with the Heat isn’t known but some believe it’s just a way to help the team attract other free agents with the “Big 3″ making some financial sacrifices.

Carmelo Anthony is on the market as well but will he really pass up all the money and all the glamour that the Knicks and the Big Apple have to offer to go elsewhere? And then there’s Dirk Nowitzki (noh-VIHT’-skee) and fans are wondering if he really would leave the Mavericks.
