Wade Willing To Take Backseat To LeBron
Dwyane Wade understands and accepts he is not the best player on the Heat.
Wade has embraced a supporting role alongside LeBron James.
“I know what he can do. I know that when he wants to, he’s unstoppable,” Wade said. “It’s not a sensitive subject with me. I get it.”
Wade, whose scoring average slipped to 22.1 points per game during the regular season, has sacrificed for the better good of the Heat since James arrived two seasons ago.
“My confidence ain’t going to change, but I realize and understand where he is at this point in his career,” Wade said of James. “At certain times in the league, Coach Riley has felt I was the best player. I don’t change the way I approach the game and what I think of myself at all by saying [James] is the best in the world right now.”
