Would DWade be happy about LeBron signing with the Heat?


Just days ago, the city of Miami was littered with "Wade County" signs, held by anxious fans. But this morning I saw a newspaper headline from Miami (couldn't find the photo anywhere, not the Herald website or the Sun-Sentinel) that had this startling image:

Dwyane Wade on the left, Chris Bosh on the right -- between them, a bit higher (forming a triangle) an empty throne. The headline read: Fit For A King

Really.

Last I checked, the only one in this potential juggernaut to win a championship -- nay, to lead his team to a championship -- is Wade. And after seven seasons in the NBA, between James and Wade, Wade has been the only one to show a consistent killer instinct, a ferocious unwillingness to lose.

I can't imagine Wade has any interest in sharing the ball or the spotlight with Lebron James, much less surrendering them to him. Yet even now, the Miami Heat and their fans seem thrilled by (read: ignorant to) this possibility.

Finally, this all reminded me of a quote from Wade I read last year. He said if he could play with anyone in the NBA, it wouldn't be LeBron James. It would be Dwight Howard. Because Wade understands basketball, and he understands that a championship team is greater than the sum of its individual talents.

If Wade truly understands this, I can't imagine any reason why he would want LeBron moving south.
