Dwyane Wade on Playing with LeBron: ‘We just go together’

When LeBron James left the Miami Heat to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dwyane Wade thought his days playing alongside the four-time MVP were over for good. Now that the championship teammates are reunited in Cleveland, Wade can’t help but relish the turn of events.

“We’re just … it’s like peanut butter and jelly, man,” Wade said of James on Friday at his introductory news conference. “We just go together.”

Wade and James were both drafted into the NBA in 2003, won an Olympic gold medal together in 2008 and went to four straight NBA Finals together from 2011 to 2014, earning two rings. In the three years since, James has added three Finals runs and a championship to his résumé while all Wade can claim is missing the playoffs in 2015, a second-round exit in 2016 with Miami and a first-round exit in 2017 with the Chicago Bulls.

While [LeBron] James has made it clear that he won’t deliberate his uncertain future until the Cavs’ season is complete, there is strong belief in [Houston] Rockets circles that they’ll have a legitimate shot at landing the four-time MVP this summer. Rival executives also believe the Rockets will have a real chance. And once you really look at it, when you get past all the noise about the Lakers and even the compelling case for the up-and-coming Philadelphia 76ers, it makes all sorts of sense.

Report: Markelle Fultz No Longer Experiencing Shoulder Soreness

Basketball Insiders

Published

on

Philadelphia 76ers rookie guard Markelle Fultz is no longer experiencing shoulder soreness and will be evaluated in three weeks, the team said Saturday.

The Sixers said Fultz will ramp up his basketball activities in the interim.

Fultz, selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 draft, has played in just four games and was shut down on Oct. 29 due to soreness in his right shoulder and a scapular muscle imbalance.

The 19-year-old has resisted jump shots while relying almost exclusively on drives to the basket. He is shooting 33 percent (9-of-27) from the floor and 50 percent (6-of-12) from the free throw line. Off the bench, he has averaged 19 minutes.

Fultz’s shooting woes have been underscored by an altered shooting motion that has made some wonder whether the shooting tweak led to the shoulder injury or the shoulder injury forced him to change his shot.
