Dwyane Wade traveled all the way to Phoenix to cheer on Chris Paul and the Suns during game 2 of the NBA Finals
Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade have been close friends for a long time, almost through their whole careers. So, when the Point-God finally made his first finals at the age of 36, perhaps the Heat legend had an idea of how much it meant to him. And with LeBron James recently announcing his support on Twitter, it seems Wade felt the need to do one better.
At this stage, after waiting for it for so long, Paul can probably almost taste it. With the Suns leading 2-0 in this series against the Bucks, he is now closer than he ever has been to winning it all. And it seems that Wade couldn’t help but get close to his run as he could.
After the Suns closed out a 118-108 victory in game 2, the Suns received some major support from Dwyane Wade, as he commended them right on the court. And when the now Jazz part-owner hugged CP3, he had some interesting words of encouragement in store.
“2 more bro!”: Dwyane Wade reminds Chris Paul just how little time is left before he finally gets his ring
At this point, Chris Paul is likely as nervous, as he is excited. After all, he has never come this far before. And frankly, if we were in his shoes, the mere thought of failing at this stage would be terrifying.
Right now, the world is supporting CP3, cheering him on to finally get his first championship. But, with that comes pressure as well. If he fails now, the history books will not be kind to him, and NBA Twitter will never let him forget it.
With all that noise, it can be very difficult to focus. However, after game 2, Dwyane Wade came onto the court, and reminded his close friend the only thing he needs to have his eyes on. Take a look at the post below.

“2 more bro, two more”. A simple, yet very effective phrase.
Success is just two wins away. But at the same time, it is two whole wins away.
Now is not the time to be celebrating about being 2-0 up. Just this postseason we have seen teams come back 2 game deficits.
It all comes down to the Suns here. Can they be relentless and finish this out? Or will they give their opponents a chance to counter?
