Amid offseason analysis about whether the overlap between their games has reduced their individual productivity as teammates, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade insisted Thursday that chemistry with LeBron James is a non-issue.
"We figured it out. I think we did a very good job," Wade said during an appearance on ESPN Radio, as he promoted his charity event this weekend in his native Chicago. "It didn't hurt. LeBron was still third in the league in scoring. I was still like fifth in the league in scoring."
Wade actually finished fourth, with the two helping the Heat advance within two victories of an NBA title before falling in the NBA Finals to the Dallas Mavericks.
"It really didn't change much of our ability once we got comfortable," Wade said. "Me and him are very good friends. We're two guys who want to make it work, who wanted to make it work for our teammates to be successful, so we did."
