Lebron already trying to take Wade's place?
LeBron: I Can't Defer
The Heat went out of their way to showcase Dwyane Wade as the alpha dog prior to their preseason opener on Tuesday night, but LeBron James isn't ready to defer to his new teammate.
Wade went last in pregame introductions and when the Big Three posed for pictures James and Chris Bosh were on opposite sides of the long-time Heat superstar.
Regardless, LeBron admitted that he can't be a follower.
"I can't defer," James said. "I'm never in defer mentality."
