So what to make of Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh together Wednesday afternoon in the second-floor member’s lounge at Soho Beach House? Besides the fact that they asked for high security, salads and no visitors, who knows. “They were relaxed and laughing,” says our snitch. Prior to the big pow wow, where they snacked on watermelon salad and chips with guacamole, Bosh was seen lunching with three men at Khong River House. Later that night we saw James and his wife Savannah being escorted onto the field at the Beyoncé and Jay Z concert. LeBron was wearing a Miami Heat hat, if that means anything.
