PHILADELPHIA (AFP) - LeBron James added fuel to rumours he may leave the Miami Heat in a birthday message he sent over Instagram to teammate Dwyane Wade on Friday.

James, a four-time National Basketball Association (NBA) Most Valuable Player, left the Cleveland Cavaliers to join Wade, 32, on Friday, and Chris Bosh in Miami in 2010.

But James, Wade and Bosh - each set to make more than US$20 million (S$25.5 million) next season - all could opt out of their contracts after this season.

"I came to Miami for 2 reasons. To play with U and to win championships and I can't thank u enough for the sacrifice you've made since I arrived homie!" said James.
