Yeahh, shouldn't say like this, must respect people who died that day...!!!
that is pretty insulting. i hope he apologizes for that
Yea, my respect towards him just dropped drastically. He's a piece of **** for that comment.
Not exactly the best choice of words by D-Wade
Very dumb and insensitive thing to say. On top of that, they must already be thinking they're gonna get more than 72 wins this year. Not a chance when everyone wants to smack them about.
Dumb a$$ comment. U don't ever create a parallel between losing a few games to the worse terrorist attack on US soil. It shows a lack of respect by these fools who get handed everything on a silver platter.
Well here's some chants that should reverberate throughout the garden when the heat come to play
Anytime wade touches the ball
Lebron: de- lon-te west
If you read this, he only say themedia will it to the world trade center. He does say that losing a couple games and it seem like things are falling apart, crashing down, and the media will blow it out of proportion acting like it is a real catastrophe. He even went on to say it's only a couple basketball games. trivializing a couple loses as just a basketball game.
No harm(by him), no harm intended by him...The harm comes from someone in the media, whomisquoted and blew it out of proportion, the same thing he was saying they tend to do. Make it seem like a giant catastrophe, when it is something actually much less and in this case nothing at all.
We all know the media blows things out of proportion, and here is another case of that.
he only said the media will portray it as a huge disaster, which it isn't it's just basketball.

world trade center a terrible attack on american soil, fact.
But the media twisting and turning this, getting it all blown out of propetion. The media has to make news and generate a buzz and contriversey. They should be ashamed. This is not the only time these things have happen(the media). They intentionally look for a way to use a harmless quote and twist it out. Then an oversensitive public runs with it. Not saying the WTC isn't a sensitive subject, but in this case, it was used properly to refer to a great tradgedy, which basketball is not. It 1, makes people remember the WTC and it's victims and family involved, NEVER FORGET, it raises conciousness of it. Not that people forget, but forinstance, I attend a fund raiser annually for a FF who died on 9/11, the first couple years, companies donated stuff and funded things, people bought raffle tickets that sponsered college funds and funds for the families. now that support has dwindled, but the families are still there. 2, It shows me Dwayne Wade still remembers, to have that incident in his mind as one of the worst catastrophe's in the world...it shows despite his fame he still remembers. Keep in mind he only used it as a giganitc disater.
His only misjudgment is that in using the world trade center as an example of a disaster, he left himself open to the media's ability to twist things and create controversey

his exact words were...
"We're going to be wearing a bullseye. But that's what you play for," Wade said. "We enjoy the bullseye. Plus, there's going to be times when we lose 2-3 games in a row, and it seems like the world has crashed down. You all are going to make it seem like the World Trade is coming down again, but it's not going to be nothing but a couple basketball games.
I see nothing wrong in what he said... or how he said it. He's absolutely right. The media is going to trash on them every single chance they get.
