He made the right decision. Or should I say the doctors made the right decision for him.

Miami Heat captain Dwayne Wade will sit out this summer and not take part in the 2012 Olympics in London.

He confirmed today that he will have any necessary surgery on his knees and rest up for what many think can be a repeat bid to win an NBA title with the “Heatles”.

Wade informed USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo and coach Mike Krzyzewski Thursday that he wasn’t healthy enough to play for Team USA.

Wade played through the injury in the playoffs and still managed to average 22.6 points per game during the NBA Finals.

I think it’s the right thing to do. He’s already got a gold medal, and for an athlete who’s sports is yearly, championships are probably more important than gold.
