Dwyane Wade compares LeBron James, Heat struggles to girlfriend or wife


Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, sitting in a tree?

Well, not technically though the Miami Heat guard did recently compare his relationship with teammate LeBron James to that of a dating relationship, suggesting that the Heat’s recent struggles are because the two aren’t doing the ‘little things’ they did together in the past:

“Let me give you an example. If you’re in a relationship with a woman for a long time, you start getting comfortable. You stop doing the little things that you should do, that you did in the beginning. It’s just like a relationship. We got a little comfortable. Now we have to get back on that edge a little bit.”

I’m not sure if that’s the best or worst example I’ve ever heard.

Of course, it does have some merit – when you enjoy success and things get comfortable on top, it’s typical to sit back and relax a bit.

Still, I’m sure that above quote received quite the run at practice this morning.

    Misleading article and title. Wade was talking about the entire team chemistry. But congrats, you got me to click on your article. Cheap way to get attention, though.
