(CHICAGO) — Dwyane Wade is looking forward to another championship run in the 2012-13 season. One of the main reason’s for last year’s championship was the play of LeBron James.
James became the first player since Michael Jordan in 1992 to win an MVP award, an NBA Finals MVP award, and an NBA Championship and top it off with an Olympic gold medal in July. Wade already has two NBA championships and believes the second for James isn’t too far away.
“It’s here. This is the time,” Wade said of James, according to ESPNChicago.com. “(He’s) 27, you won a championship, you had success, it’s not going to go anywhere. You can see him now taking that next step to that next elite level. I thought he proved it this whole season. I thought he was dominant from Game 1 all the way until the end, and he proved that that’s not easy to do and there’s not many that have ever done it.”
Wade believes the sky’s the limit when it comes to James’ ability to dominate the rest of his career.
“He’s been very good. He has three MVPs. I don’t know statistically how much more he can do, but I think just his dominance of a game and starting to really understand everything about the game now. It’s starting to all come together. That’s the scary part,” Wade continued.
