Default "opposing teams can thank us now."- Wade

"And even on the road, because every place is going to sell out when we come to town. So [opposing teams] can thank us now." - Dwyane Wade


"We're going to give Miami a show every night. And on the road every place is going to sell out when we come to town, so they can thank us now."- Dwyane Wade







It's arrogant and just reinforces what most people think about the Miami Heat right now — that they're all full of themselves.

Yeah, they can thank you for one night of the year your team shows up to sell out their arena.

Toronto and Cleveland should said "fuck you" letters for now causing lower attendance in theirs.

Yawn. Welcome to July.

Wade made these comments in the press conference the day after they signed. This is a spin article from an author trying to create controversy.

I agree, I bet Cleveland and Toronto are going to have standing ovations when the Heat come to town. How shielded from reality are these guys?

It's not the truth that are bothering people, it's Wade saying they can thank us now. It makes him come off like a dick.

But I'm all for it, it'll just make the games that much more entertaining. Now all we need is actual defense to be played in this game and let players get knocked on their ass like from the 80s and 90s.

More than a couple of teams are selling out those games but will have record low assistance in the other games.

Balance is negative I predict

I agree that this is a silly thing to say. But we have to remember these guys in Miami say lots of things: good things, bad things, funny things, etc. but only the inflammatory comments are the ones that get the headlines.

So we probably must take into consideration the context of what he was saying instead of just a small line in what was probably a longer convo.

But, nonetheless, this guy is saying some ignorant stuff. Please stop, you are giving people more reasons to dislike you, and that aint good for the NBA. This isn't WWE where there are good guys vs bad guys. This is ballers vs ballers and we don't need a bad guy to root against. Don't become the bad guy, because we will say goodnight to the bad guy.

But what he is saying is mostly true, they will become a game that everyone already circled on the calendar. That don't mean you have to be arrogant about it.
