Wade On LeBron: ‘We Are Champions’

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Dwyane Wade says he is sad to see LeBron James leave the Miami Heat, and he supports him regardless.

Wade released a statement Saturday calling James “my brother,” and saying he knows James’ decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers was not an easy one for the four-time NBA MVP.

Together, James, Wade and Chris Bosh went to the NBA Finals in each of their four Miami seasons together, winning the championship twice. James announced Friday he is leaving for the Cavaliers, and hours later Bosh agreed to a five-year, $118 million deal to stay with the Heat. Wade is closing in on a new deal with the Heat as well.

Wade says, “We achieved the goals we set when we first signed on together. We are champions.”
