LeBron James clarified his 'here or the Garden' comment to Dwyane Wade

LeBron James clarified his 'here or the Garden' comment to Dwyane Wade

Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade played his final swan song at Staples Center, but it looks like Lakers fans don't want to let him go.

As he got older, Wade - like National Basketball Association legends Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan - would rely more on footwork and timing than athleticism but Wade may be the most crafty of the three.

After entering the National Basketball Association together in 2003, James' and Wade's careers have seen them face off as rivals and work together as teammates.

"It ended how it was supposed to end, and I'm not even talking about the victor [of the game]", James told reporters.

"I texted him the highlight". We get to have dinner (later). I'm just so grateful to have been drafted at the same time as this guy.

"So many great players are going to come into this game and I'm going to get knocked down and knocked down", he said before he scored 15 points, all in the second half, and earned 10 assists against the Lakers. "One of the best movies you could ever see". They funneled each other to drive to their more uncomfortable sides, and James forced Wade to attempt a 27-foot turnaround, fadeaway 3-pointer that missed badly with 7.2 seconds left. "I think now people are seeing it, especially when I have the ball in my hands a little bit more".

"We've pushed each other even more when we became competitors once again". Over the course of his 16 years in the league, the guard has career averages of 22.4 points, 5.5 assists, and 4.7 rebounds per game.

"To accomplish what I really wanted to accomplish in this league, and that's winning at the highest level, I needed him", James said. Afterward, as the two shared some laughs surrounded by media, Wade told LeBron, "I appreciate you for letting it end here" - here, being L.A., where LeBron just signed in the offseason.

Beyond producing a successful rookie season, another means by which Kyle Kuzma endeared himself to Los Angeles Lakers fans was through his embracing of Kobe Bryant and fiery mindset and approach the five-time champion played with.
