Miami, FL, United States (4E Sports) – Dwyane Wade said he did not make any pitches to get friend LeBron James to stay with the Miami Heat and that he is supportive of the transfer.
“As crazy as that might sound, I’m supportive of my friends doing what makes them happy,” he quipped.
Wade said that he could tell through body language that LeBron James would not be returning long before the move back to the Cleveland Cavaliers was announced.
“He called me the next day,” said Wade. “Obviously he still had to say the final yay or nay, but I knew. I could tell.”
Wade and Chris Bosh will instead get support from new acquisitions that include Luol Deng, Josh McRoberts and Danny Granger in trying to extend their consecutive NBA Finals appearances to five.
