Scott Clarke / ESPN Images(CHICAGO) -- Despite being one of the most decorated players in the NBA, Dwayne Wade called the Chicago Bulls "Jimmy [Butler's] team" when he was introduced to the media Friday.

"This is Jimmy's team," Wade said of his new teammate. "It won't be a tug and pull whose team it is." Wade, 34, who had played for the Miami Heat since 2003, signed a two-year, $47 million deal with the Bulls this month.

"I've know him since Marquette," the 12-time All-Star also said about Butler. "I have tremendous respect for him. This would not have happened if it hadn't been for Jimmy Butler. That was huge."

Earlier this month, Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo said the team now had "three alphas" which included himself, Wade, and Butler, but also called the Bulls Butler's team.

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- The U.S. Olympic women's basketball team is ready for Rio.

The ladies stopped by ABC News' Good Morning America Friday as they gear up for the 2016 Summer Games.

"Well luckily, a lot of them had played in previous Olympics and lot of them were together in London so, there's not a lot that you have to do that's brand new and they're all so unselfish and they all want to play together and they all want the same thing, so it makes it easy," said head coach Geno Auriemma.

The team will be going for their sixth straight gold medal. Players Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird and Tamika Catchings have won gold in Athens, Beijing and London.

"For some of us, it's our fourth Olympics, some third, second," Taurasi said. "It's always a different group so it's always exciting to see how we're going to come together, what kind of team it's going to be and I think we just have a group that's ready, focused and to go down there and do work."

Bird said this group is focusing on the journey ahead of them.

"The players that we played with before, they set the tone," she said. "We're just kind of following suit and we're hoping we can show the younger players how to do it and like Di said, everyone team's different. You know, just cause we won before, doesn't mean we win again."

As for the toughest competitor on the court, "If I had to pick one, I'd say Australia," Taurasi said.

Allen Kee / ESPN Images(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) -- Despite being sidelined for the first four games of the regular season, Tom Brady joined the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Massachusetts Thursday for the start of the team's training camp.

The Patriots quarterback practiced alongside his teammates, including Jimmy Garoppolo, who will take over for Brady during his absence.

"Tom will return as our starting quarterback when he comes back," Patriots coach Bill Belichick told reporters Wednesday. "But in the meantime, we have to prioritize the first part of the schedule and that will be to get Jimmy ready to go."

Brady, 38, was suspended four games over a conspiracy to deflate footballs. He will sit out New England's September season opener against the Arizona Cardinals and subsequent games against the Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans and Buffalo Bills.

ABC News(PHILADELPHIA) --  Former NBA All-Star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar urged police and the black community to start having meaningful conversations following both the recent targeted killings of law enforcement officers and the deaths of black men at the hands of police.

“It’s a frightening thing to see the breakdown start to occur like that because without the police, we don’t have a civil society," Abdul-Jabbar told ABC News’ White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl in Philadelphia. "We have chaos, and we need police absolutely. They are really heroes. We ask too much of them, and they try to do it with a smile.”

“The former Los Angeles Lakers star said “institutionalized racism” in the criminal justice system has made it more difficult for conversations to take place between law enforcement and the black community. "There is no conversation," he said. "They’re not even talking past each other."

“People make assumptions about people of color, and people of color make assumptions about the law enforcement apparatus, and neither one of them are correct,” he said.

Abdul-Jabbar grew up in a family of police officers. His father worked as a transit cop in New York City, and his grandfather also served as a police officer.

“My dad would’ve been upset that so many black people are being killed unnecessarily,” he said.

Abdul-Jabbar said he was most disturbed by the shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who was holding a toy gun when he was killed by a police officer in Cleveland in 2014.

“He had a toy gun," Abdul-Jabbar said. "He was playing on Christmas Day, my goodness, and the officer didn’t even wait two seconds before he shot him,” he said.

Abdul-Jabbar, who is slated to speak at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday night, said Hillary Clinton is the “best choice for our country.”

Donald Trump is “pandering to fear,” he said. “The answer to our problems is not chauvinism and fear mongering."

"He has no solutions,” Abdul-Jabbar continued. “He just says he’s the solution, He’s going to solve all our problems through his brilliant understanding of all the issues. Nobody is that smart. Nobody.”

Scott Clarke / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) -- Aaron Rodgers has finally spoken out about his brother, Jordan, competing on The Bachelorette.

Jordan has said on the current season of the ABC reality series that he is estranged from the Green Bay Packers quarterback; Aaron was absent when Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher met his family.

At one point, Jordan told Fletcher he didn't think Aaron even knew he'd signed up for the show.

When asked by reporters at Packers training camp Tuesday about his younger brother and The Bachelorette, Aaron commented, "I haven't seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn't really affected me a whole lot," ABC affiliate WISN-TV in Milwaukee reported.

However, Aaron chose not to discuss the status of his relationship with his brother.

"As far as those kinds of things go, I've always found that it's a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I'm just -- I'm not going to speak on those things, but I wish him well in the competition," he said.

Jordan Rodgers is one of two finalists on The Bachelorette, along with Robby Hayes. Fletcher is expected to choose one of them on next Monday night's season finale.
