Dwyane Wade says the Miami Heat embraced their status as villains last season, but perhaps a bit too much. From the Sun-Times: “Dwyane Wade says the Miami Heat ‘played off hatred’ last season. That’s why Wade believes the Heat failed to win the NBA title. In an interview with Mike Krzyzewski on the Duke coach’s show on SiriusXM Radio, Wade says ‘we wanted to win to spite people’ last season, the first where he had LeBron James and Chris Bosh as teammates. Wade continued, ‘I believe that’s the reason we didn’t win a championship.’”

Did the Heat lose in the Finals last year because LeBron played like he was scared? Did they lose because J.J. Barea went off? Did they lose because Dirk did everything outside of morphing into Larry Bird to stop them? Dwyane Wade doesn’t believe any of that was the real reason they lost. The Heat [...]
It took somewhere between 45 to 50 hours for Dylan (I don’t have a last name) from Switzerland to create this way realistic Dwyane Wade piece using a Pencil (H, 2B, 4B), Mechanical pencil (0.5 mm) and soft tissues. WOW!
The Dallas Mavericks didn't defeat the Miami Heat, " the haters" did, according to Dwyane Wade, one of the Heat's Big Three.

Dwyane Wade's body is spent. He's in absolute agony. He's gritting his teeth and taking huge gasps of air as the clock is ticking down, all while people surround and implore him to keep going all the way to the finish. This isn't a 48-minute NBA game watched by thousands of fans. It's a 30-second stationary bike ride watched by a few scientists.

PBT: The Heat were hated last season, and Dwyane Wade said the team embraced that to a fault in an interview on Mike Krzyzewski’s radio show.
Q: Ira, from what I see of the tentative draft of the new agreement (no hard cap, the mid-level exception stays, and the one-time ability to dump a player), I think it looks pretty good for the Heat. Your thoughts? — Chris.
A: It’s an abject long-term disaster, with such severe luxury-tax policies that it would make it practically impossible to retain LeBron James, Dwyane Wade...
Whilst many of you will have read the news via various sources in the last couple of days, I'm still getting a lot of questions via facebook and twitter as to what is happening with tickets for the NBA World All-Star Classic tour. So it's best to update you here on what the situation appears to be panning out as.
Unfortunately, the news is not good right now for Australian...
Frustrated over the state of labor negotiations, dozens of NBA players including Dwyane Wade and Dwight Howard are prepared to push for decertification of the players association next week, according to multiple reports Thursday night.
(As NBA owners decide how many more games they’re willing to lose to the lockout, perhaps it is time to consider gains that can be made when the league returns. In our latest lockout series, we look at changes that could produce an improved product.)
Issue: Put it this way, even the NBA recognizes how difficult it is to toss a truly fair jump ball, so it has eliminated the jump...
Q: OK, you’re freaking me out with this punitive tax talk. What’s the point of having a mid-level exception in the new CBA if it’s this difficult to use? — Evan.
A: It’s there for the teams caught between the cap ($58 million) and luxury tax ($70 million). Actually, if it is for the reported $5 million, it would be there for teams between $53 million and $70 million in...
