LeBron James ‘Bothered’ Dwyane Wade Signing Was Unpopular with Cavs Players

Dwyane Wade has started to settle into life with the Cleveland Cavaliers during their recent nine-game winning streak, but the start of his tenure with the team was evidently a bit rocky. 

Speaking to The Athletic’s Jason Lloyd (h/t USA Today‘s Erik Garcia Gundersen), LeBron James disclosed several of his teammates weren’t thrilled by the team’s decision to bring Wade aboard on a one-year deal. 

"There was a couple guys with it," James told Lloyd. "But it wasn’t a lot.

"I still know what he’ capable of doing. Why wouldn’t you want another guy in the locker room that brings a championship mentality and a guy who can still play? So, of course, it bothered me, but f–k it. It is what it is."
