LeBron James posted a birthday message to Dwyane Wade on Instagram Friday, causing tons of Heat fans to start panicking about the future again.
In a dedication to his brother, Lebron expressed his appreciation of DWade’s friendship, encouragement and sacrifices throughout their 11-year-friendship.
Happy Bday to my running mate, homie, brother, and most of all straight up friend! The friendship we’ve created our rookie year at pre draft camp was pure and that’s why we stuck together from that point on! Obviously didn’t know we would eventually become teammates and do the things we’ve done so far. I came to Miami for 2 reasons. To play with U and to win championships and I can’t thank u enough for the sacrifice you’ve made since I arrived homie! No matter what happens in the future we stuck together like brothers for life. And no matter what they say, u still a BAD Mutha-Shut-Yo-Mouth out there on that court! @dwyanewade. Oh almost forgot u old as dirt! Boy you look 40. Hahaha! #TreyBallBDay #YouASuckaOnYoBDay
King James, DWade and Chris Bosh can all opt out of their contracts this summer and test free agency waters. James and Bosh joined DWade in Miami the summer of 2010. DWade held an elaborate birthday party on yacht for his 32nd birthday last weekend.
