Dwayne Wade showing his superfriend abilities. So smooth.
Miami Heat started a new campaign called “fan up” as a response to “fans” not showing up on time or not showing up at all. Basically they’re saying, “bandwagon fans stand up!” It does seem appropriate for a team with one of their “big three” Bosh saying he just wants to chill/coach wants to work and the coach’s inevitable firing and getting replaced by Pat Riley. This team is a joke right now until they actually put in work. Miami’s never been a big basketball city so this is not a surprise.
Not in my house!
Dwayne Wade Posterizes Anderson Verajao

excerpt from Wayne’s blog
“First of all, I cannot even begin the blog today without stating a simple fact I have recently come to realize: Dwyane Wade, you are amazing. I was not a believer. You know I’m Kobe all the way to the grave. But to see what Dwyane Wade does on the basketball court, man. It’s shocking on television, but in person it’s unfathomable. Sitting down front row and watching that kid jump over everybody’s head and be such a terrible jump shooter during the whole game but, as soon as it matters, everything he shoots goes in? That’s amazing. I haven’t seen him in the elevator lately, but when I do I’m going to tell him how amazing he is.
And shout out to the Knicks, especially Nate Robinson, Q Richardson, Chris Wilcox and Chris Duhon. ESPN showed me on Sportscenter sitting in the front row with my D-Wade band-aid on, but they didn’t show me heckling those poor Knicks players. I went completely off. My seats are about five rows down from the visitors bench — so they can hear if I sneeze. Well, imagine me up the whole game going crazy like I’ve been a D-Wade fan all my life, yelling stuff like, “This is my house” and, “Get out of Miami.”
Who HASN’T had a monster game against the Knicks?
Exciting sequence – nice behind the back pass to wade leads to an acrobatic dunk by Wade.
Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade’s divorce from wife Siohvaughn is getting uglier by the minute. Siohvaughn accused Dwayne of abandoning his children, cheating, and infecting her with an unspecified STD. She wants the names of ”all of his sexual partners” during their six-year marriage.
Dwyane’s Heat salary is $14,410,581, according to published reports. He hauls in millions more from major endorsements such as Gatorade and Converse.
To make matters worse, The All-Star has been romantically linked to actress Gabrielle Union.
From Siohvaughn’s pleading: “Dwyane has dissipated substantial sums of marital property including . . . buying his mother a $2 million church; placing substantial sums of money in an account with another woman; providing numerous friends and family members with unfettered access to accounts with hundreds of thousands of dollars of marital funds from which they made substantial withdrawals . . .” Meanwhile, she says, he cut her off financially.
Dwyane, named a ”Father of the Year” in 2007 by the National Father’s Day Committee, has gone ”months” without seeing his boys, Siohvaughn says. His ”failure to spend time with them . . . has resulted in the children at times being afraid of him; in fact, Zion . . . does not recognize or know Dwyane.” She wants sole custody, and support.
D-Wade makes a nice move to split 2 defenders….then stuffs it home against Okafor. No other player, except for maybe LeBron, combines both quickness and strength better than Wade right now.
