LeBron James wants another “superteam” is the latest NBA rumors but the Cleveland Cavaliers star will have to form it without friend Dwyane Wade, who stated that he is not interested in a team possibly featuring LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul.
Meanwhile, Carmelo Anthony also stated that his primary focus is to bring winning back to New York Knicks and not in thinking about his next team or the NBA rumors.
“Don’t put me in it. I ain’t jumping in that. Don’t put me in that right now. I’m not answering that question about what we talked about,” Wade shared to ESPN after recent reports of LeBron James stating that he wants to team up with his friends in the future.
“I came here for a reason, which was to win in New York. Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case thus far, but I feel like I have unfinished business to take care of,” Anthony said of the NBA rumors of another superteam featuring LeBron James and friends.
“And I feel like, I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, if I just get up and run away from something that I started, that I feel a part of and that’s not done yet, then I think I would carry that burden on my shoulders. That’s just me as an individual.”
Wade and James were teammates with the Miami Heat superteam years back, along with forward Chris Bosh. The trio led the Heat to a title in 2012 and 2013. Despite the Heat’s success, LeBron James still left buddy Wade in Miami to go back to hometown Cleveland Cavaliers.
Chris Paul is currently with the Los Angeles Clippers, a team which ranks behind the West’s best teams Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder. Paul has been part of NBA rumors linking him to LeBron James’ Cavaliers and probable trades that involve Cleveland point guard Kyrie Irving.
The latest NBA rumors is expected to heat up even more in the 2016 offseason if LeBron James fails to win another title this season. Like what he did in previous years when he joined Miami, he will most likely run to his friends and ask for their help again with hopes that a superteam can bring him another championship.
