Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are joining forces once again in Cleveland for the upcoming 2017-18 NBA season, and it will be fun to watch them in action. The two superstars won back-to-back NBA titles as members of the Miami Heat, and they’ll be looking to give the Cavaliers their second title in three years this upcoming season.
After officially signing his contract, Wade commented about what it’s like being back together with his banana boat buddy.
Dwyane Wade on him and LeBron: “its like peanut butter and jelly. We just go together.”

Wade landing in Cleveland this offseason was one of the least surprising things we can think about. He and James have been buddies for quite a long time now, and at this point in their careers it’s clear personal glory is far down on the list of things they’re concerned about — it’s championship or bust.
Whether Wade will be able to help James win his fourth title this upcoming season or not is a different story altogether. The Eastern Conference is still probably Cleveland’s to lose, but given the incredible talent assembled in the Western Conference, the Cavs will be huge underdogs if they make it back to the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive season.
The only thing we know for certain is we can’t wait to see what these veterans can do this season.
