With another postseason battle together just on the horizon, teammates LeBron James and Dwyane Wade don’t quite see eye-to-eye when it comes to what coming up short of the ultimate prize would mean. Per the Sun-Sentinel: “As they looked ahead to the start of the NBA playoffs, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade noted Thursday how they’ve come together in their thinking about late-game situations. But there is one significant difference between the Miami Heat stars when it comes to the notion of whether this season would be a ‘failure’ without a championship. Wade said yes; James said no. ‘The season won’t be a failure,’ James said. ‘You put too much work into a season to automatically call it a failure, but it would be a disappointment. This is our goal. This is what we’ve come together for. A failure is a strong word. We commit ourselves and we dedicate our season, we work hard every day and to automatically say it’s a failure, I think that’s a big word. But I think it’d be a disappointment, because that’s what you work hard for every day.’ Wade was more definitive. ‘I say yes,’ he said. ‘There’s only one champion. It’s a failure for every other team. If you don’t win a championship, you had a failed year.’”
