Two legends – one of the Los Angeles Lakers and one of Miami Heat – were pictured in a gym together in Las Vegas.
Longtime teammates and good friends LeBron James and Dwyane Wade worked out and watched their sons, LeBron James Jr. and Zaire Wade, play in a youth tournament on Thursday.
This caused some speculations regarding whether or not is possible that Wade teams with LeBron yet again on a new team.
While Wade pointed out that it was nothing more than getting some work in, we are still not ruling out that option.
The two legendary ballplayers have been teammates more than once.
They first joined forces as part of Miami Heat from 2010-2014, becoming one of the most dominant one-two punches in the league and going to four straight NBA Finals, winning back to back championships in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons.
Their second stint as teammates didn’t go that well. Wade joined James and the Cavaliers in the 2017-18 season, but it was soon clear that the once-deadly duo doesn’t share the same energy.
Wade was traded back to the Heat and ended the season on a positive note with the team where he made his name, recognized as a local hero and fully supported by the Miami fan base.
LeBron recently signed a four-year, $154 million contract with the Lakers, while Wade is still a free agent.
It will be interesting to see where Wade ends up signing. Would he be willing to try something new, or will he stay for another season with the Heat? One thing is for sure – wherever he goes, he will provide a spark of offense for the team, not to mention the leadership and wisdom he can bring to a locker room.
