    Seriously what happened to this guy. The straw that broke the camels back for me was when he asked to get payed for playing in the Olympics( i can never forget Wade for that statement).


    Me personally i preferred the old converse wearing Wade.. Dude was such a role model, and played with so much hunger when he was younger. Riley brought the best out of Wade. Eric Spolestra is too much of a "yes" man

    BEST 9 MINUTES EVER SPENT IN THIS VIDEO.... ALSO LISTEN TO THE POST-GAME INTERVIEW IN THIS VIDEO. DUDE WAS SO HUMBLE. Today's Wade is a totally different person, the fame and money has changed him

    Remember before LeBron came all those years he would flat out CARRY to Heat to playoff wins? That dude literally had the worst team in the playoffs and he would single handedly win games

    he def does seem to have a sense of entitlement now... maybe he and Pat Riley thought on the day they recruited Lebron that they'd done all the hard work and the rings would just start rolling in

    in his defense. you're going to develop a chip when you hear for nearly 2 years what a big asshole you are, how your guy is overrated, etc

    More like RIP the NBA giving Wade the respect he deserves.

    He USED to consistently get those calls, when he would run full speed, pick up the ball & jump into defenders' bodies. It would get him to the free throw line, or even an AND-one when he got it in. Now all of a sudden when he jumps into his defenders, they're not only not calling it, but sometimes even calling a foul on Wade instead?! This guy is a champion & fMVP- the refs should show a little respect out there.

    after wade killed the mavs in the 2006 finals, i thought he was the next coming of jordan. he's slowed down a little bit. defering to bron bron. he needs to take over if lebron cant do it.

    He and Bron are leadpassing and then running full speed into the defenders, sometimes not even looking to score it. Most of the the time the defenders just have their body there and can't avoid contact because Wade jumps into them like a tank. No one should call that ish, it's sickening.

    Wtf, why the hell would you get free throws just by jumping into defenders? I hope I'm missing the joke and this is sarcasm.

    He has lost a lot of muscle mass over the years.

    no athlete is a role model, but theyre actions are influential on narrow minded kids..

    u wont forgive wade? im sure hes hurt you feel that way, its not hurting anyone but you..
    until ppl understand these guys are nothing more than entertainment, theyll forever be angered and disappointed by them

    Its because nobody hits these punks anymore. Back in the day a big dog like Charles Oakley or Bill Leimbeer would knock you on your ass for coming into the lane wagging your tail and flaunting your fancy new Nike dog bone and haircut. The NBA went from where the big dogs play to an indoor dog park where cute girls like Gabriel Union go to watch their tee-cups nip at each others asses. **** you Stern.

    Yeah, Wade used to be awesome, but now he's just a jerk. He's cocky, arrogant, he's clearly used Growth Hormone and Steroids. Maybe that changed him, I don't know but he's a real asshole.

    Lebron is definitely more likable, but Wade is not. Wade is a prick.

    Anybody else notice how much Wade and LeBron travel? They do it all the time.
