LeBron James and Dwyane Wade spent a lot of time on the court together. In addition to being teammates in Miami, they dueled 31 times. One of the most memorable came in 2014 on Christmas when James returned to South Beach. The second run as a Cavalier proved fruitful with a championship. However, on this day Wade and the Heat overcame a 30-point effort by The King for a 101-91 victory. The buddies, who had dinner at Wade’s house the night before, were able to spend some extra quality time together on the court. Flo Rida’s halftime performance knocked out the power in the arena and the game was delayed for some time.
