Dwyane Wade has had a very, very busy 24 hours, but that did not stop him from his scheduled stop as a co-host of Live With Kelly, where he thanked fans and talked about his decision to join the Bulls in his hometown of Chicago.

After the show he spilled some more interesting info though, as host Kelly Ripa asked him about his fellow NBA players in the dressing room and Wade and wife Gabrielle Union regaled her and the show’s Instagram followers with tales of LeBron James’s hate of cell phone roaming charges.

​Wade gleefully points out the irony of James renting a yacht and flying private to Spain but still doing everything in his power to avoid the surcharges that come from using data outside of the country.

He does make sure to point out that James is a good tipper though, so at least he is spreading some of his Nike/Kia/Blaze Pizza/Beats/NBA money around to the service workers of the world while refraining from giving telecom companies anymore than they deserve.
