Dwyane Wade: I’ll send Chicago and New York ‘gift baskets or something’
Wade said he will soon take time to thank the teams that interviewed him during free agency. "I’ll send them all gift baskets or something," he said.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: He still has his sense of humour.
Clearly, Dwyane Wade isn’t troubled by the criticism, backlash, and negative publicity about how he handled free agency, or the conspiracy theorists claims that Bosh, James, and Wade had planned for years to play together with the Miami Heat.
Bottom line: this trio will have a giant bulls-eyes on their backs. They will be public enemy number one. They will be the team everybody loves to hate.
Instead of shying away from this, instead of downplaying, instead of worrying, Wade is embracing the situation.
Of course, he’ll be booed by fans of the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks. They’ll reign down their frustration on Wade when Miami comes to the United Center or Madison Square Gardens.
Why worry about being the villain? Why not enjoy the situation and just win games?
Heck, send the damn gift baskets.
