Dwyane Wade: Not a Fan of the Gottis

The NY Post has the rather hilarious story of D-Wade turning down an opportunity to meet a member of the Gotti clan: “Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade is a brave man. He point-blank refused to meet Mafia boss John Gotti’s grandson, Carmine Gotti, while both were partying at Meatpacking club M2 on Saturday. A source said: ‘Gotti was celebrating his birthday upstairs and was excited to hear Wade was downstairs. He headed down and asked to meet Wade, who responded, ‘There’s no way I’m meeting the Gottis or having my photo taken with them.’ Gotti’s security guard got into a scuffle with Wade’s. Gotti then headed back to his friends looking visibly upset, and Wade, who felt uncomfortable with the situation, decided to leave.”‘

    Wade is no fool.
    He’s in the middle of a nasty divorce with accusations flying hot and heavy from both sides. All he needs is a picture with the son of mob boss to be painted as a bad parent.
    Besides, y’all remember how Lebron got called out for appearing with Young Jeezy. Imagine how it would have shook out for Wade?
    I’m sure the young Mr. Gotti had some choice words for Wade though as he walked away.

    I don’t find this news bit at all hilarious. It shows that Wade and his people have the foresight to not place Wade in a situation where bad things might happen/intepreted. Good move on them. If more sports stars did this they wouldn’t be stuck in awful situations ala Ben Roethelsiberger.

    I never heard anything about LeBron being called out for hanging out with Young Jeezy. What was that about? If your an NBA player you can’t be around rappers? Not like that is the first time it’s ever happened.

    @Brad Long: If I’m not mistaken, he was on the intro of a track a few years back and apparently he swore and it made headline news. I could be mistaken though.

    Gotti is sucha stupid person, just like his grandfather and D-WADE, is too smart for him. But if Gotti was a real boss, first: you never heard about him or his grandfather, second: no way someone could refuse him.
    Im Italian, and please stop thinking about mafia like it’s somethin like sopranos or the godfather.
    Mafia is about killing people and and being desrspectuful for human life. it’s just a shame.

    if i was Wade i would refuse to meet the Gotti kids on the grounds that there douche bags, not so much for “image” reasons.

    The way John Gotti was eulogized after his death in the NY media was sad & disgusting. These kids aren’t celebs or stars. Much props to Wade for wanting to have nothing to do with that.

    So this kid thought that a professional basketball player would want to hang out with him based on the fact that his grandfather was a criminal? Am I missing something?

  • G I I

    wise guy.

  • Jon

    why is this even written like a negative story? obviouly alot of the people here who have made a comment have common sense in thinking its a bad idea, so why the need to even publish a story. oops sorry, didnt notice it was from the NY post.

  • chintao

    Wade is pu$$y. First white sunglasses, now this? Anyway, only maricons party in the meat-packing dickstrict, strickly dickly. Thank goodness he won’t be coming to “improve” the Knicks anytime soon.

  • Sporty-j
