Dwyane Wade says LeBron will play so long “people are going to forget we even played together.”


It can be tough to accept that it has been a decade since LeBron James and Dwyane Wade first joined forces in South Beach. After all, it feels like yesterday that James, Wade, and Chris Bosh, promised to bring home multiple titles to the Miami Heat fateful. They did come away with two Larry O'Brien trophies — which is better than nothing at all. 

Wade, Bosh, and a chunk of the powerhouse Heat squad have either hung up their jerseys for good or are playing somewhere else. Besides Udonis Haslem who is still with the Heat, one lone player still reigns supreme a decade since that momentous team-up that changed the NBA landscape forever. And it is none other than LeBron James.

We can assume that Wade is joking. After all, when James joined him in South Beach, Wade famously declared that the team does not belong to him anymore. Dwyane was OK with giving LeBron top billing - a key moment in any successful superteam story. This was an unprecedented moment, especially since it was Wade who brought the franchise its first title in 2006
