Dwyane Wade reveals LeBron James once won $50,000 in team play session
Wade participated in an AMA with Bleacher Report, during which one of the commentators asked him for his best plane game story. The story that followed was epic, with Mario Chalmers losing $50,000 to LeBron James while they were all on the Heat.
Wade revealed one of his team play experiences with LeBron. It was when he was playing with his Miami Heat teammates on one of their plane trips.
According to the Bleacher Report, Dwyane Wade said, “We played a lot of poker. I don’t know what people consider good gambling stories about losing money. Mario Chalmers was the most memorable. We had a game called Booray. You can play the game with a ghost, and the ghost makes the pot disappear.

Wade also revealed that throughout the match, Chalmers was winning while LeBron James was referred to as the ghost. Wade explained the twist in the story by saying that LeBron James “flipped” the final hand, causing Chalmers to lose in a near-win scenario.
Chalmers has always been LeBron’s Heat kid. The fact that he blew a big buck on one of the Heat’s stars fits the bill pretty well.
