Basketball isn’t the only thing NBA superstars enjoy. Many of them have plenty of hobbies and pass times they take up in order to keep themselves entertained.

Well, for the 2008 US Redeem Team that was cards, and among all of them LeBron James and Dwayne Wade played the most. However, there can only be one top card player and according to D-Wade that was and is him.

Wade confidently proclaimed himself the better card player, and even attributed it to his high school days. It would seem Flash played a variety of different card games as a teenager.

It certainly is a bold claim from Wade. Fans will have to wait and see if the King responds.

There can be no denying that LeBron James will have a thing or two to say to D-Wade. However, The King might be a bit too worried about the Lakers’ current form to respond. After all, they find themselves in the bottom half of the Western Conference with a 3-10 record.

As things stand, it is looking like another season to forget for the LA Lakers. They continue to disappoint game after game, and it is safe to say that King James is not happy about it.
