D-Wade’s Ultimatum to the Heat

Dwyane made it very clear to his employer what they need to in order to retain his services: “Dwyane Wade said Monday that simply making the playoffs is not enough to satisfy him, and his long-term commitment to the Heat hinges largely on the team becoming a championship contender again. He also expressed concern that other teams have passed the Heat in the Eastern Conference hierarchy this summer…’As it stands today, 2010 is an opt-out year for me, and I’m looking forward to 2010. As I said to Pat Riley, I’m all about winning. I want to make sure we’re putting ourselves in position to not just win games, to not just get in the first round, but to compete for a championship. And if it’s not happening this year, then me signing that deal to give myself flexibility is pointless. I will wait until that’s happening.”’

    Welcome to the Cavaliers, Dwayne Wade!

    or Maybe Nash, Wade, Lebron, Dirk and Bosh all sign with the Knicks. Hell, don’t play defense, but they average 150 points a game.

    season ticket prices go through the roof while also being completely sold out

    Seeing how this whole free-agency thing is going with the Cavs only getting the big-cancer so far, I could see Bosh Lebron and Wade in Knicks jerseys, definitely.

    Jay: If you don’t see Steve “Oh yeah Letterman, I love New York, get me on the team” Nash and Dirk “I don’t blame Karl Malone one bit” Nowitzski chasing rings with Bosh, Lebron, and Wade, I dunno what to say!

    Bosh/LeBron/Wade would be quite ridiculous enough. Your right about Nash though, he’s in man-love with Mutoni’s system, and New York is always and forever will be a place where you can do… stuff. Nash to me is actually the most realistic prospect for coming to NY.

    I thought Mutoni’s system was d-ride the Lakers in every article he posts?

    Since I’m making that move to LaLa soon, I wouldn’t mind seeing him in a Laker uni.

  • Blue

    Ask Siovaughn…DWade is all about long term commitment, so you should believe him… He knows that they are no where near championship contention right now so he is leaving himself an out instead of just saying I want to go somewhere else…

  • flash
