Dwyane Wade says that God gave LeBron James everything except a robust hairline

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James

Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade has witnessed firsthand LeBron James’ superhuman abilities. Apart from finishing the seemingly impossible alley-oops, Wade has seen James twist his ankle really bad, shake it off, and score 20 points. He believes that apart from the hard work James has put in, he’s also equipped with God-given abilities. But Wade believes that the man up was fair to all of us. That’s why He took away James’ ability to grow hair.

No hairline

Wade appeared on I AM ATHLETE, where they tried to dissect James’ greatness. The three-time champion is the authority on the matter as he’s one of James’ best friends, not to mention they teamed up several times throughout their careers. The one-time NBA Finals MVP tried his best to explain how James does it. Wade ultimately resorted to attributing LeBron’s supreme physical gifts to God. Following this line of thought, Wade made fun of James’ receding hairline.

It was like when God made him, he was like ‘I’m going to give you all this. But I’m going to take one thing from you. I’m not going to give you no lining. But I’m going to give you everything else,’” Wade said.

Of course, James fans know that his hairline made one of the biggest comebacks in NBA history. The man has never been involved in any scandal whatsoever. He donates to charity, and he even has a school. But the man can’t grow his hair like Wade or most people can.

Sprained ankle 3-pointer

This is probably one of the instances that Wade was talking about. James literally sprained his ankle in the sequence, hobbled on one leg to the 3-point line, shook off his defender with a step-back, knocked it down, then hobbled back on defense on one leg.

On the bench, James is seen holding his ankle. It’s unclear whether he’s tightening the bandages up. But one thing’s for sure, the man stood back up and continued playing. As Wade noted, players who twist their ankles usually miss a week or two. The play above occurred in the 2010-11 NBA Season. Data reveals that James played 79 games that year.

James continues to amaze us with his superhuman stamina. The four-time MVP is 37-years-old now. And in the 2022-23 NBA season, he will turn 38. It’s sad to admit, but James has been showing signs of slowing down. And with all that in mind, he's still one of the most reliable players on the Lakers.
