The visit focused almost solely on the last month of free agency movement in which Wade gave all of the credit to Pat Riley for orchestrating arguably the biggest coup in the history of professional sports.
Wade himself claimed that he is catching up to Gloria Estefan in terms of popularity in Miami and did not count out living with his new teammates. When asked about Chris Bosh possibly being linked to Cleveland prior to he and LeBron James taking off for “South Beach,” Kimmel asked Wade if he would have considered playing with the two other All-Stars in Cleveland.
“No,” Wade quickly replied. “I wasn’t going to Cleveland.”
The response drew a laughter from the Los Angeles-based crowd, obviously because Cleveland is such a dreadful place to play basketball for six months of the year. Just ask Joakim Noah.
The full appearance in video form is after the jump. Have at it, folks.
