Miami guard Dwyane Wade talks about how his relationship with LeBron James has evolved.

Q: Obviously your relationship with LeBron has continued to evolve over the last year, but do you find yourself having different conversations with him at this point this season than maybe you did a year ago in the Finals?

A: “Yeah, totally different conversations. I think now, you guys see, immediately after games, we're talking about what we need to do for the next game. We're not satisfied in the moment that we're in. As soon as we leave the court, we're walking off the court, we're talking about what we need to do for the next game, what we did in this game that we can get better at on the walk to the locker room. That's growth.”

So when you and LeBron and Chris Bosh were walking off last night, I know you won't share much, but maybe a couple talking points from last night's walk?

"No, it was just understanding how they was playing. They made an adjustment how they was playing us throughout the game, and immediately we talked about what we have to do to kind of — that adjustment as three guys that are going to have the ball in their hand most of the time. Just that conversation right there, but also working our brains and our minds already before we go watch film to see and to know, this is what we felt. Even though I didn't feel we did a great job of making an adjustment in the moment, we have an opportunity to do it.”
