Four years ago, the Miami Heat were instantly crowned NBA champions after they landed both LeBron James and Chris Bosh. Despite the big signings, the Miami Heat were only months removed from a first round playoff loss. It was after the loss that Dwyane Wade said it would happen for the last time.
Dwyane Wade was right, as the Miami Heat made it to the NBA Finals for the next four seasons. However, his position as the leader of the Heat and NBA superstar were sacrificed in favor of LeBron James. In the end, Dwyane Wade seemed more comfortable as a role player, instead of the star he once was.
In order to continue playing the background for the Miami Heat, Dwyane Wade opted out of the next two years of his contract, worth $42 million. After doing all of this, LeBron James returned to his original team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. This is something fans online find funny and they have lit up Twitter, Instagram, and Vine with jokes.
