A day after LeBron James announced to the world that he was coming back home to Cleveland, Dwyane Wade released a statement via Associated Press' Tim Reynolds giving his thoughts on the homecoming of 'The King'.
The statement read as follows.
As a friend and a teammate, I am sad to see my brother LeBron leave to begin a new journey. In 2010, we decided to come together all for one goal -- to win championships and we succeeded. We were friends when we first joined the league and created an unbreakable bond the past four years. Our collaboration will always be very special to me both personally and professionally. We shared something unique and he will always be part of my family. LeBron made the right decision for him and his family because home is where your heart is. I know this was not an easy decision to make and I support him in returning to his roots. As an organization, a community, and as individuals, we achieved the goals we set when we first signed on together. We are champions.
It's not at all shocking to see Dwyane Wade wish his 'brother' a fond farewell. After all, they did win two titles together.
