Dwyane Wade is not closing his doors about the possible reunion with LeBron James in the future. Wade faced James and the Cleveland Cavaliers for the first time as a member of the Chicago Bulls on Friday night at the United Center.
In the recent offseason, Dwyane Wade decided to leave the Miami heat and play for his hometown team, Chicago Bulls. So far, the 34-year-old guard revealed he’s happy with his decision to join the Bulls. They are currently doing well this season and expected to challenge the Cavaliers in the East.

Before facing the Cavaliers, Wade talked about the possibility of reuniting with LeBron James in the future.
“I never thought I would play with LeBron,” Wade said. “I didn’t think it was a possibility at all. I enjoyed the All-Star Games, I enjoyed the Olympics, but I never thought that we’d play together. That’s why now I look with younger guys and what they say and stuff like that because you never know what the future’s going to hold for you.
“That’s not saying that I want to play with LeBron [again],” Wade added. “Let me clearly say that. That is not saying that I want to be somewhere that I’m not. That’s not saying that at all, but also I understand how this league works, how this thing goes, and people need to know just don’t say never, that’s all.”
In 2010 free agency, LeBron James signed with the Heat to team up with Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. The Heat’s “Big Three” managed to win a back-to-back championship title in 2012 and 2013. However, in 2014, James opted out his contract with the Heat and returned with the Cavaliers.

In the recent offseason, Wade also left for the Bulls while the Heat decided not to let Bosh play due to blood clot issues. As of now, the reunion between James and Wade seems unlikely but still a possibility.
“SUPER FRIENDS” CREATING A “SUPER TEAM”
Last year, “The King” expressed his desire to play with his close friends Carmelo Anthony, Wade, and Chris Paul.
“It would be pretty cool,” James said. “I’ve definitely had thoughts about it. I really hope that, before our career is over, we can all play together. At least one, maybe one or two seasons — me, Melo, D-Wade, CP — we can get a year in. I would actually take a pay cut to do that.”
NBA Fans might actually wait a little longer before seeing Wade and James on the same team again. However, the reunion of two former Heat’s “Big Three”, together with Anthony and CP3, will surely be one of the much-awaited “Super Teams” to be created in the NBA.
