Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade got together for a chat on Instagram Friday, and a funny story emerged during their talk.
The two players, who are part of the NBA’s exclusive “Banana Boat” crew, talked about what got in the way of CP3 joining the Miami Heat. Both players agreed that one of the impediments had to do with their jersey numbers.
Chris Paul wears number three and is known as “CP3.” Wade doesn’t quite have the same attachment to his number where it’s part of his nickname/brand, but that has been his number as well, save for his season in Cleveland when he wore No. 9.
