LeBron, Wade with dueling bounce passes that lead to the fast break slam (VIDEO)

Oct 23, 2013, 9:10 PM EDT

If you’re wondering why LeBron James is going to sit out the Heat’s final preseason game against the Nets on Friday with Dwyane Wade not yet committed but likely to do the same, this highlight from Wednesday night’s action against New Orleans will likely give you some indication.

Wade’s looked great in the couple of exhibition games he’s played, and he and LeBron haven’t lost one bit of their championship chemistry. This play, where James finds Wade with the bounce pass on the break before Wade delivers a no-look one of his own back to his teammate for the slam tells you all you need to know about their readiness for the regular season.

    Yeah, that was nice. Hurry up and upload the Oden dunk so I can frolic in a pool of Heat haters dismay.

    Can’t wait to watch me some Miami hoops. They have made me a very happy dude.

    LeBron James. As much as I hate him, I secretly watch him play any chance I get.

    LeBron James: The most loved, hated athlete.

    That would be a good documentary.

      I can respect that. I’ve hated Kobe Bryant for a long time, but lately I have grown to appreciate how much he does for the game and obviously what a fierce competitor he is. I rooted hard for the Lakers to make the playoffs and I was very disappointed that Kobe wasn’t with them when they got swept. Anyway, I can’t blame anybody for rooting against LeBron… but how can you not appreciate what he does on the court?

        Totally. I’ve never liked Kobe, but man, getting into bed and turning on the 4th quarter of a close, late-night Laker game is riveting. I won’t lie, I loved watching the Lakers fall flat last year, but found myself hoping for some Kobe magic anytime I tuned in. I’d even go so far as to say I’ll miss Kobe when he’s gone.

        I feel sorry for people so blinded by hate for the Heat that they can’t appreciate and enjoy watching them play. You can still hope they lose in the end, but who doesn’t like watching great basketball?

        Kobe ≠ great basketball.

        The world would’ve probably been a better place had Kobe never been born.

    Do most people realize just how difficult a full speed bounce pass is? That was to a moving target, through traffic, and on the money! Then Wade immediately puts the “no look, reverse, bounce pass” right back to him like a laser guided missle. And the swinging slammer at the end “Ka-Boom!” was the boring part of the play?!?! What? Like Mr. James, hate Mr. James…like Mr. Wade, hate Mr. Wade…like The Heat or hate them…but nobody could watch a play like that and not be amazed by the game of basketball. Even an old woman who only saw that play as she was surfing tv channels was not going to “touch that dial” until after watching for a few minutes longer,”how exciting, I wonder if my grandson has ever heard of this Miami Heat?”
    BTW- Even after that play and that game, LeBron’s post game tweet…honoring G.O. for his performance and praising his return after three years. I hate to tell the haters, but that, my friends, is class, pure class.

    Wow, that was almost as good as Luol Deng’s behind the back pass in the Bulls’ game.
