On this episode of The Sports Multiverse, we imagine a world where Lebron James takes his talents – and Dwyane Wade – to the Chicago Bulls.
It's been ten years since LeBron James changed basketball forever and took his talents to South Beach to play with Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and the Miami Heat in search of his first NBA title.
