LeBron James spilled some tea recently about the somewhat chilly reception best friend Dwyane Wade got upon his arrival in Cleveland this offseason, and now more details are trickling in about who exactly James was referring to.
James told Jason Lloyd of The Athletic in a feature that ran on Thursday that some Cavaliers originally did not want to have Wade on the team.
“There was a couple of guys with it,” said the four-time MVP, according to Marcel Mutoni of SLAMOnline. “But it wasn’t a lot.”
“I still know what he’s capable of doing,” James added of Wade, previously his teammate for four seasons and two titles in Miami. “Why wouldn’t you want another guy in the locker room that brings a championship mentality and a guy who can still play? So, of course, it bothered me, but f— it. It is what it is.”
