Report: Dwyane Wade’s Dad Was Kicked Out of Bulls/Heat Game in Chicago

Dywane Wade may have been born in the city of Chicago, but that doesn’t mean that his family gets special treatment at Bulls games. Reports ESPN: “Dwyane Wade Sr., the father of Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, was ejected from Wednesday’s contest at the United Center, according to an arena source. While seated in the 100 level, the elder Wade was asked by arena personnel to stop using profanity. He refused and was ejected, the source said. According to the venue’s website, the United Center ‘intends to provide all guests with a safe, comfortable, and friendly environment. Our family atmosphere prohibits foul or abusive language, and any violation of these policies may result in ejection.’”

    I wonder if he needed a wheelchair to get escorted out.

    they should’ve let john lucas III kick him out since he was doing everything else


    I wonder if he got to finish his deep dish pizza before he got thrown out?

    I didn’t know that about profanity. This must be selectively enforced.

  • Riggs

    so when the crowd yells A*shole or bullsh*t, do they kick everyone out? please.

  • Duh

    Looks like when Dwayne does his drama queen act on the officials, we all can now see where he gets it from.

    Shoulda signed with Chi town. D


    Wade’s dad said Rose was overrated. That’s profanity in Chicago.

    *Wade pointing at security*
    “Don’t talk to my father like he’s your child”.

    If security asks someone to stop yelling profanity and they keep doing it, you kick them out. There’s nothing “selective” about it.

    DRose was doing a lot of cursing on the sidelines last night. It was on TV and everything…lol


    Diesel, if other people are/were using profanity in the arena and they were not told to stop using profanity, then yes it was a selection.

    This rule only gets enforced if the people around you complain.
    The ESPN blurb doesn’t say he was abusing the refs or players, and doesn’t say he was being a general nuisance. It says he was using profanity.
    Since I don’t know the details of the incident, I can’t say if him being kicked out was unfair. What I do know is that at every professional sporting event I’ve attended, people use profanity. EVERY SINGLE ONE.
    So, that rule doesn’t apply to just using profanity. It applies to using it when and where other people don’t like it.

    I agree with Allenp for sure. I’ve done my share of heckling at University and Pro sporting events (mainly hoops), and have never been booted out because I keep it clean.

    I have seen friends get asked to leave (really riding a pitcher warming up in the bullpen with a hyphenated last name, at Rogers Centre in Toronto), because they were swearing.

    If he was courtside, or lower 100 section, and swearing at the players, refs, game itself, and was loud and people around him complained and he kept doing it. Sure, kick him out. That would happen to anyone.

  • truthteller

    I’ve been to many NBA games and have heard all kinds of profanity and have nevr, ever seen anybody asked to leave! Very interesting.

    Me and my friends were threatened to be evicted from a Mets game for using too much profanity because someone told security. Guess it was because we were white.

    It turns out Wade’s dad was sick and security was helping him out. Wade’s step brother was at the game and said he doesn’t know where the profanity story came from. They’re lucky none of the security staff realized they were black, in a predominantly black neighborhood, in a crowd that’s usually over 50% black….otherwise, they could have been discriminated against.
