Exclamation Re: WTF? Miami Heat putting up a Wade/Olympic banner? lol

Even if no other teams recognize their star players that were on that olympic squad, Dwanye Wade was the MVP of the olympics, Kobe was mvp of the last game however but that's another story for another day. Wade said it himself "I dont think any athlete has been so heavily discarded as quickly as I have, and I'm coming back to prove myself" people hate this guy so much and blame miami's horrible season on him..*ahem* excuse me? You had an aging shaq, a horrible lineup, and a coach who is willing to sacrafice the team's star by putting him on the floor before he properly healed from all previous and NEW injuries...you can't blame him for th TEAM's downfall ...Hi, meet logic ...he owns

Oh and I have no problem with the Olympic banner. Congrats to Wade.

It's just a promotional even to try and sell more season tickets.



Wade deserves the praise. He played out of his mind in China.

I also think the #23 should be retired across the entire NBA.

Not a huge deal, but seeing other people wearing #23 (even players as great as LBJ) just seems wrong.

It's not some crazy idea either. The NHL already did the same thing with Wayne Gretzky (the GOAT in Hockey).

Bill Russell should have his number retired as well I guess since he has enough rings for all his fingers and his manhood.

they are just desperate to hang more stuff on their ceilings.

but i don't really think this olympic gold medal is so precious. i mean, it's more of a "relief" that they won rather than a glorified victory.

the previous team usa was like a varsity team getting their butts kicked by minor jv teams (puerto rico blow out, etc.) so they finally win the gold back, but it's not a sensational "wow, oh my god, i can't believe they're so awesome!" feeling. it's more like "cool, they finally didn't f--k it up again this time."
