LeBron James Admits to Missing Dwyane Wade During the Postseason

VIDEO Le Bron James Once Again Bothered By Postgame Question from ESPN's Mark Schwarz

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James played the last three games of the NBA Finals with a significant and "self-inflicted" right hand injury following the team's Game 1 overtime loss in Oakland.

At the deadline, the Cavs traded away Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat), Channing Frye (Los Angeles Lakers), Isaiah Thomas (Los Angeles Lakers), Jae Crowder (Utah Jazz), Iman Shumpert (Sacramento Kings) and Derrick Rose (Utah Jazz) in return for George Hill, Jordan Clarkson, Larry Nance Jr. and Rodney Hood.

"Oh absolutely. I mean, listen, not only from a brotherhood aspect and what we know about one another, and also from an experience factor", James said.

He's a guy that's kind of built for the postseason at this point in his career, who lives for the moment.

James played with Wade for the Heat from 2010-2014, where they went to four consecutive NBA Finals and won championships in 2012 and 2013. So definitely, definitely think about that. Making matters even worse is the way in which the Cavs lost Game 4 in what is considered by some as one of the least competitive title-deciding contests in NBA Finals history. "It seems like so long ago that he was a part of this ballclub", James said.

Wade was part of the Cavaliers' roster at the start of the season. But before this season's trade deadline, Cleveland would sway a lot of players - mostly to acquire youth. Based on those numbers and Wade's playoff reputation, he probably could have helped James and the Cavaliers.
