Dwyane Wade: ‘I Think L.A. Is Going to Win the Championship’
- Updated: September 8, 2019
After spending most of his pro career in South Florida, the future Hall of Famer and his wife Gabrielle Union recently moved to Sherman Oaks, an affluent community in the Greater Los Angeles area.
In addition to adjusting to Southern California’s infamously bad traffic, Wade plans on watching plenty of NBA basketball at Staples Center, and he just happens to think very highly of L.A.’s two pro basketball teams.
“I think L.A. sports is in an amazing place right now with football, basketball, baseball and even high school sports, and I look forward to being a fan and rooting all these teams on,” Wade said to the Los Angeles Times. “Obviously with LeBron being on the Lakers, I have a dog in the fight, but you have the Lakers and Clippers, two of the best teams in the league and the hottest tickets in town. People want to go watch both of these teams because they’re both in the running to come out of the West and play in the Finals. They could play each other in the Western Conference finals, which would be great. Golden State still has the heart of a champion with everyone they have coming back, but I think L.A. is going to win the championship.”
Which obviously begs the question: Which L.A. squad does Wade think will win the NBA championship?
He still has a close relationship with LeBron James, and in fact, one of the reasons Wade chose to live in the San Fernando Valley was the close proximity to Sierra Canyon School, where his son Zaire is set to team up with James’ son, LeBron James Jr. (who goes by Bronny).
Although Wade says he’s done playing in the NBA, the former Heat legend says that he does plan on working out with James prior to Lakers games this upcoming season.
