Dwyane Wade Release Statement About LeBron James Returning to Cleveland


Dwyane Wade has released a statement addressing LeBron James’ decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers:


Well stated. I have to say, I am of the belief that Wade probably found out before that plane ride home from Vegas Thursday night. But what’s important is that there is a mutual admiration and respect for each other and what they created the past four years in Miami.


As a friend and a teammate, I am sad to see my brother LeBron leave to begin a new journey. In 2010, we decided to come together all for one goal — to win championships and we succeeded. We were friends when we first joined the league and created an unbreakable bond the past four years. Our collaboration will always be very special to me both personally and professionally. We shared something unique and he will always be part of my family. LeBron made the right decision for him and his family because home is where your heart is. I know this was not an easy decision to make and I support him in returning to his roots. As an organization, a community, and as individuals, we achieved the goals we set when we first signed on together. We are champions.
