The bond shared by LeBron James & Dwyane Wade

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James have a camaraderie that goes beyond the parameters of a conventional relationship. With a camaraderie that has been built on the court and reinforced off it for over a decade, these NBA superstars have achieved a level of closeness where words are frequently redundant. Their friendship began in the 2003 draft when they both entered the league. However, it kept becoming stronger during their fierce on-court fights as Eastern Conference opponents. Their four wonderful years together with the Miami Heat, though, catapulted their friendship to new heights.
