According to Examiner.com, the latest issue of SLAM Magazine has two possible covers: One with LeBron James in a Knicks jersey and one with Dwyane Wade in a Bulls jersey.
Don’t get any funny ideas, though. The fine folks at SLAM don’t have any insider information. They — like everybody else in the free world — are simply speculating about what might happen. And, you know, brutally teasing hopeful fans in the process.
Of course, Wade returning to his home town is the longest of long shots. As ESPN’s J.A. Adande recently discovered, Wade clearly wants to stay in Miami and intends to lure one or two other big names to join his team of Super Friends.
Said Wade: “It’s going to be fit with me first. I’ve made that very clear. Do I want to leave? Nope. Mmm-hmm. I want to be in Miami. That’s where it starts.”
But he’s not recruiting. No, really.
Added Wade: “I don’t do recruiting. Not now, anyway. I don’t look at it as recruiting. I’ll gauge and see if guys want to be [in Miami], who wants to be with me. It’s about who can come to Miami, it’s about who do you trust, who can fit the organization, who best fits you as a player, things of that nature.”
What’s worse than Wade having already decided not to come to Chicago? I’ll tell you: Wade potentially stealing other free agents away from the Bulls.
