WHO: Dwyane Wade, HEAT All-Star Guard & Olympic Gold Medalist
WHAT: HEAT TO HONOR OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST WADE

The Miami HEAT announced today that they will honor four-time HEAT All-Star Dwyane Wade for helping the U.S. Menís Senior National Team win the gold medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China. As part of the event, a new Olympic/Wade banner will be unveiled at the AmericanAirlines Arena, where it will be displayed alongside the HEAT division and NBA championships banners.

The event is free and open to the public, and free parking will be provided inside the P2 parking garage while space is available. All fans in attendance will receive a free commemorative Dwyane Wade Olympic poster. The first 100 fans to purchase HEAT Season Tickets will have the opportunity to take a photo with Wade and his Olympic gold medal. The date for the photo op with Wade will be announced at a later time. Additionally, the first 100 existing HEAT Season Ticket Holders who attend the event will receive a Wade autographed Olympic poster. A select number of concession stands and the Miami Hoops Gear team store will be open for business.

He was arguably Team USA's MVP throughout the Olympics, seems like a pretty cool thing to do. Don't get where the "WTF? lol" comes in.

They also retired Michael Jordan's number, too, so they are known for doing off-the-cuff things.

I think this is kinda cool. The Heat are coming off a dreadful season and looking to generate all the positive pub that they can get.

I think it's pretty cool. Representing your country and coming home with a gold medal is something to be proud of. The Olympics come once every 4 years, it isn't like they're putting up a banner for making the all-star team. How many banners do you think you'd see from one team over the next 20 years for having one of their guys win a gold medal?

I think it'd be cooler if every arena hung a banner.

Jordan's retired jersey is way more f*cking retarded then this. Atleast thi is honoring the actual franchise player of the team.

I never understood why it bothers people that Riley did that. I think the NBA should retire Jordan's jersey league wide. Similar to what the NHL did with Wayne Gretzky.

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