LeBron James Firmly Declines Dwayne Wade’s Offer to Rejoin Miami Heat

“I saw Kobe make a basket and start a wild celebration on TV.” So, what are you supposed to do now? I took out my phone and dialed LeBron’s number. We were in the midst of free agency, and the Los Angeles Lakers were the reigning NBA champions. Wade was eager to praise the Los Angeles Lakers, especially Pau Gasol, following Kobe Bryant’s recent championship triumph. “Kobe had just won all those rings, he has five and we only have one,” Wade noted.
