LeBron: I’ve Always Wanted to Face Wade in Playoffs


After taking a 1-0 lead, (LeBron) James allowed himself the highly unusual step of looking ahead to the next round and a date with his buddy, Dwyane Wade. James and Wade went to four straight Finals when they played together, winning two championships.

“I think naturally of course, that’s since I’ve came back,” James said. “It’d be great to play against those guys in the postseason. Throughout my whole career, I’ve always wanted to go against Wade in a playoff series. We’ve always talked about it even before we became teammates in ’10. It’s not been heavy on my mind but it’s crossed my mind throughout my whole career.”
