Dwyane Wade is LeBron James’ closest NBA friend and apparently he knew LeBron’s days on the Cleveland Cavaliers were numbered last season. The Cavaliers signed Wade with the hopes of putting them over the top in the East.
Despite not working out, Wade enjoyed playing with James again, but he knew LeBron had a desire to join the Los Angeles Lakers this season.
“LeBron, first of all, he’s a guy who always plays his cards close to the vest, but I knew his ultimate goal was to be in Los Angeles. He recruited me and he talked to me about signing there (Cleveland), and I said, ‘Listen, I know you might not be there long, you’re gonna be a free agent and there are some things that might happen, and we’ll have a conversation.’ I just thought I’d make it through the season first.”
Cavs fans can’t be happy hearing LeBron’s teammates figured he was L.A. bound as early as the start of last season.
