It didn’t take long for social media to chime in about the news that Dwyane Wade is returning to Miami — a move that came to fruition about two hours before the NBA’s trade deadline on Thursday.
Look no further than the Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James, who posted a picture of Wade on his Instagram account with the following caption: Truly happy for my brother @dwyanewade!! It’s how it’s suppose to be. Love you my guy!! #WadeCountyBack”
