Dwyane Wade knows something about the struggles LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are going through right now. The two of them experienced much of the same thing in 2010-11, the year James and Chris Bosh joined Wade in Miami. That team started off the season 9-8 and endured plenty of scrutiny before eventually making it to the NBA Finals.
Wade has seen enough to know that James’ Cavs aren’t going to struggle for very long. From Joe Goodman of the Miami Herald:
“He has all the tools he needs,” Wade said. “We’ve been through it together where we ran into struggles as a team. You’re going to do that in the season whether it’s in the beginning of the season, or sometimes in the middle or sometimes at the end. He’s a four-time MVP. He’s a two-time champion. I’m sure he’ll figure it out as a leader.”
