LeBron James never seriously considered signing with the New York Knicks this past summer.
Over the years, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James shared some spectacular moments both on and off the court as teammates, opponents and friends.
"I knew at some point after the game it was going to hit me that this would be the last time we was competing against each other and it hit me right away once the buzzer sounded", Wade said. However, as a result of watching James in his younger days, Ball also became a huge fan of Dwyane Wade, who James played with on the Miami Heat from 2010 to 2014.
James and Wade experienced plenty of success on the court together, including two championships when they combined with Chris Bosh to form the big three in Miami. "That's it. That's the only place we can end this man". Webber, who would ask Brown if either Wade or James had an influence on his game, got a lengthy answer from the polymath. Ball ended the game with 10 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocks.
"I said, 'What's the odds that our last game would be in an environment like this?' He was like, 'Thank you for coming here because our last meeting is in Staples Center, '" LeBron recalled. "But I'm going to miss the shit out of this".
James and Wade post-game. The report says James didn't specifically mean NY and that he was referring to venues with the history and glamour of the two arenas. This is what you play for, playing against one of the greatest players ever. They don't do overnights. We get to have dinner (later). (Let's be real, I always knew his stint with the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers thereafter, wouldn't last long.) I can't put into words how appreciative I am for the fact that he returned for a final season though.
