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.’”
