Dwyane Wade and his Miami Heat teammates had a hard time getting into Manhattan Thursday night and the team saw first-hand the residual effects of Hurricane Sandy's damage to the city and how the storm has basically crippled all modes of transportation. The All-Star guard tweeted that he wasn't too happy about the team's lengthy commute into the city for Friday night's game against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. "3 hour traffic just to get into NY city ... C'mon Man..." While the unexpected three-hour tour of the wounded city was an inconvenience, Wade later sounded like the thing that really peeves him is the fact that Friday night's game would still be played at all. Wade tweeted that he loves playing in New York but his heart was with anyone coping with the mess Sandy left behind. "I luv playing in the garden but cnt do nothing but think abt all the families that don't have power, food, water etc... ths is a tragic hit 4 ths gr8 city" The Brooklyn Nets postponed Thursday's season-opening game against the Knicks at the Barclays Center because the storm knocked out most means of transportation. The Garden might be all bright lights on Friday night but, Wade might like to know that only four blocks away from the arena, tens of thousands are still without power and water — and that doesn't include the hundreds of thousands without homes in the tri-state area.
