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.
