Here's What Dwyane Wade Is Doing His First Night In Cleveland

Here's what the star guard is doing his first night in Cleveland.

Dwyane Wade is officially a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The former Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls' star guard has signed a one-year, $2.3 million contract to join up with LeBron James.

What's he doing his first night in Cleveland?

Hanging with LeBron, of course.

LeBron and Wade are as close as anyone in the NBA, as Pablo Torre detailed in a feature story for ESPN a couple of years ago.

This was probably the best nugget from that one:

Like the fact that whenever he is running late to meet James at a group dinner, there is only one person the finicky Heat guard can entrust with culinary power of attorney. Even when Union is also waiting at the table. "My wife wouldn't know what to order," Wade says, "but Bron's like, I got it." Two years ago, at just such a dinner in New Orleans, Union could only watch, deeply confused, as James unilaterally picked sea bass for a man who'd expressed a lifelong distaste for fish. "It's what I wanted," her husband would later explain, shrugging. "Bron got me on sea bass."

They'll certainly be eating a lot together this season.
