Wade isn't really one to trash talk and considering he spent a legitimate portion of his summer on a banana boat with LeBron, it's silly to insinuate that any sort of personal rivalry has taken effect.

Smith: Did you tell LeBron James, we’re coming for you. You went back to Cleveland. You left South Beach. I don’t know what’s wrong with you. We’re coming for you. Did you tell him that? Did you tell him that?

Wade: Some things, you don’t have to talk about. LeBron knows we’re coming for him. They’re at the top of the Eastern Conference. Everybody’s going for him.
