Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James said Friday that he was surprised by recent comments from former Miami Heat teammates.

Dwyane Wade said in recent interview that last "last year wasn't fun," while Chris Bosh, who initially said he had not spoken with James since the announcement of his decision to leave Miami, clarified this week that he spoke briefly with the four-time MVP at Wade's Aug. 30 wedding. On Thursday, Bosh said there are no "hard feelings" between him and James.


"I know a lot of words have been coming out of their camp as of late and some of it is surprising," James said Friday after Cleveland's practice. "We've got so much history together. ... It doesn't take away from what we accomplished [in Miami] and I know that."

"I've talked to D. Wade. Obviously I haven't talked to Chris. But I haven't seen them," James added.

Bosh and Wade re-signed with Miami this summer after James announced that he was returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Heat appeared in four consecutive Finals and won two championships after James and Bosh joined Wade in 2010 to form the so-called "Big 3"

The first regular season matchup between the Cavaliers and Heat is on Christmas Day in Miami.
