Perhaps it was his body language, overall demeanor, or intuition, but Dwyane Wade knew LeBron James was leaving Miami before James actually told him.
Before James made his decision official, the two spent some time together in Las Vegas. And apparently James didn't exactly play his cards close to the vest.
From the South Florida Sun Sentinel:
“He called me the next day. But I knew then. Obviously he still had to say the final yay or nay, but I knew. I could tell.”
As tough as it was for Wade to stomach, the veteran guard seems to be taking his friend's decision in stride and with the utmost class.
“As his friend, I’m just supportive,” said Wade, who made no recruiting pitches to James. “As crazy as that might sound, I’m supportive of my friends doing what makes them happy. Obviously, same thing with him in this situation. You’ve gotta do what makes you happy — selfishly do what makes you happy. The decision to go back home was that.”
