Dwyane Wade isnít sure how to explain his on-court chemistry with LeBron James, but he boiled down their basketball relationship into the simplest of terms.

ďItís like peanut butter and jelly, man, we just go together,Ē Wade said Friday after his second Cavaliers practice at Cleveland Clinic Courts.

When Wade signed a one-year, veteranís minimum $2.3 million contract Wednesday, best friends James and Wade were reunited after playing together from 2010-14 with the Miami Heat, reaching four consecutive NBA Finals and winning two championships.

Here are more highlights from Wadeís 23-minute press conference:

--Was it surreal when you walked in here the first time and saw LeBron?

ďEvery time we walk by each other in the locker room and everywhere, we just look at each other and shake our head because it just donít seem real. Itís like, ĎHow did this happen? How did we get here?í We just start laughing every time we walk by each other. It wasnít planned, it wasnít expected, but when it happened it happened and everything happened fast. Itís definitely cool, itís definitely good to have a friend here, somebody that you respect here, thatís playing the game here. But definitely didnít expect to be here. Iím happy to be here and hopefully I can bring to this team what they need from me.Ē

--On missing the gameís big moments:

ďIíve been lucky enough in this league to be in a lot of big games, a lot of big moments. Been in five Finals and my whole life Iíve been in some big moments, so thatís what makes me alive. You come into a basketball season and you just plan to play, I donít like that feeling. You donít feel like you can compete for a championship and your hope is hopefully to go to the playoffs, like I like to know that itís going to be a long season.

ďI was telling somebody I missed those moments where I remember a couple of years ago when me and LeBron was still together I had a game in Indiana where I scored five points and everybody said I was done and I was this and that and then I came back the next couple of games and scored 30, 28 and 41. I miss that. I miss being in my room not talking to nobody, feeling like the world is on my shoulders and then coming out and showing what Iím made of. I havenít had that in a couple of years. So getting an opportunity to be back on this team and understanding Ė knock on wood everybody stays healthy Ė what we can accomplish, you know, those moments are going to come. I look forward to it.Ē

--On his possible role with the Cavs, perhaps coming off the bench:

ďMe and (coach Tyronn Lue) just talked about, we talked about role. We didnít talk about starting or nothing like that. We just talked about what my role can be and pretty much what Iíve always done. Understanding that right now we have to get through training camp, we have to see how guys play together, we got to get through preseason. Iím not focusing on starting at the 2. Iím not focusing on anything. Iím just focused on coming in here, learning the offense, continuing to be one of the guys and figure that Ty, Coach, he will figure everything out.

ďItís everybodyís job that has on a Cleveland jersey to be ready and prepare for whatever he decides and weíre deep. We got a lot of guys. I donít want to (peg) anybody against anybody, especially because Iím here. If someoneís starting then theyíre starting and itís your job to come in when they come out of the game and do your job. So we all have a job to do no matter if itís starting or coming off the bench. So, when we get to that point, heíll let you all know. I donít got nothing to do with it.Ē

--On what he will bring to the game:

ďI havenít been where I have to score every time down in a long time. Iím a Ďpick your spotí type of player. When I have the ball in my hand, Iím always a playmaker. Iím always dangerous to make plays. Iíve scored over 20,000-some points in my career, so I can still put the ball in the basket. Itís different this year from a standpoint of scoring. Last year I wasnít efficient but I wasnít playing on this team, neither.

ďI can attack on the block. Iím a great pick-and-roll player from a scoring and passing standpoint and when they need me to make sure I stay in that corner somewhere and stay there and let ĎBron do his thing and be ready to shoot it, I got to knock shots down. My goal from a 3-point standpoint, everybody talks about my percentage, Iím not J.R. Smith, Iím not Kyle Korver, Iím never going to be those guys. But I want to do better than I did last year. Last year I shot 31 (percent) or whatever. I want to shoot a couple more percentages higher this year.Ē
