LeBron Caught D-Wade Checking On Heat Scores While In Cleveland

 

Everybody thought Dwyane Wade would be a Miami Heat player for life—he helped bring three championships to the city and is considered the franchise’s greatest son.

Wade’s thoughts of departure in the summer of 2016 were unexpected, but the 35-year-old veteran had the right to be irritated with the Heat organization after contract negotiations were far apart. On July 6, 2016, Wade made a decision to return home to Chicago and become apart of the Chicago Bulls, leaving Pat Riley and stunned fans in awe.

At the time, Dwyane Wade’s reason for his exit was to return home like former Heat teammate and star forward LeBron James did with the Cleveland Cavaliers. It may be true, but in an interview on Adrian Wojnarowski’s The Vertical Podcast with Woj, Wade admitted Miami Heat owner Pat Riley’s decision to leave him hanging all summer on contract talks left the three-time champion fed up.

Wade’s time in Chicago was limited to only one year, due to the franchise deciding to re-build. This resulted in a buyout and move to the Cleveland Cavaliers where Wade again joined forces with his friend LeBron James. After only half a season, Wade was homesick and asked the Cavs to trade him back to Miami, which they did. Last night, Dwyane Wade gave his comeback as a Heat player. But Dwyane was never really gone. His heart was always in Miami.

Before last night’s game, he admitted that LeBron James did catch him checking Heat scores, while he was with the Cavs.

 

“I think LeBron saw that I watched Miami closely all the time. If I was watching something, he would say, ‘What you doing?’ I’d say, ‘Checking the Miami score and different things like that.’

You appreciate things a little bit more when you’re away from it. Probably him, as well, and me, too, just appreciate the times and moments we had. You don’t like to be in other place and other environments always saying ‘Hey, remember when we were in Miami?’ We definitely had those conversations with each other about some of the things we did and how it was done and why it was done.”
