Dwyane Wade’s ex $1 million lawsuit thrown out

wgntv-dwayne-wades-exwife-exwife-facing-attempted-child-abduction-charges-loses-attorneys-20120619_540x405
The last thing 3 time NBA Champion Dwyane Wade wanted to do this off season was to sit in a court room arguing over money. Thanks to a judge, he won’t have to. He can continue to enjoy this offseason.

Siohvauhgn Funches-Wade was taking “3” to court to sue him for $1 million in endorsement money he was supposed to “share” with her. The lawsuit was dismissed at the request of Funches-Wade believe it or not.

There was probably a settlement made, but regardless, “3” more than likely was probably more than happy at the outcome.

James returning to Cleveland is a great myth

The summer of 2014.
Never has a summer of free agency in the NBA been so highly anticipated since 2010, and the main reason it is so anticipated is because of the same characters who made the summer of 2010 so crazy.

Dwyane Wade.

Chris Bosh.

and of course him. Lebron James. You all remember this right?

The words “take my talents to South Beach” will forever live on in the annals of sports history.
But even though everyone will take that quote and will run with it forever, it was the words that he uttered after, that really hit home and make the most sense now. Yes especially now, when everyone and their moms wants to talk about the Summer of 2014, and if Lebron James will bolt from the team he sacrificed and gave up so much to come and play for.

What sacrifices you ask? We can get into that later.

But it’s these words that should shut up everyone who dares to question rather if Lebron James will decide to come back to the Miami Heat after he opts out (for more money) next year.

I feel like this…this is gonna give me the best opportunity to, to win, and to win for multiple years. Um, and not only just to win in the regular season or just to win 5 games in a row or 3 games in a row. Um, I want to be able to win championships and I feel like I can compete down there

King James

There. That right there ladies and gentlemen, is why the talk and speculation should end about Lebron bolting for anywhere next year. Especially the talk about him going back to Cleveland.
Why must we do this to ourselves? I ask my brothers and sisters in the media is there not enough to talk about?

The Heat won a 2nd consecutive championship in their third try. The team, largely in tact will return for another run at it this year. Ray. Mario. Even the Birdman is coming back. Sure the Nets got better, on paper. Yes Derrick Rose is coming back (we think). And the Pacers will be hungrier than ever.
The competition will be stiff. Maybe that’s why folks are already foaming at the mouth and fingertips to talk and write about Lebron heading somewhere else next year.
earned

Ok so the Lakers will have a lot of cap space. Do you think Lebron watches how Dwight Howard jetted off to Houston, because of a difference of, well everything with the Lakers and says to himself “oooh yeah I want some of that drama”?

Word is Carmelo may leave New York. Yeah right. And Lebron will just jump right in his place right? Ha.
Just because Carmelo’s wife LaLa has a budding career in LA, doesn’t mean he’s willing to give up the bright lights of Madison Square Garden for the silicone and weave of Los Angeles (Clippers or Lakers).

And then there’s Cleveland. Smh (that means “shaking my head”). Lebron James going back to Cleveland is like the guy who leaves his longterm girlfriend for another chick who gives and spoils him with everything. And then one day he decides to go back to that longterm girlfriend, just because he’s tired of being spoiled. Yeah…that happens everyday (<----sarcasm)

Here's what Cleveland has to offer Lebron this time around: Mike Brown as Coach, a broke down Andrew Bynum, a fragile Kyrie Irving, along with Anderson Varejao, Tyler Zeller, Alonzo Gee, rookie No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett, free agent pickup Jarrett Jack ( who was very vocal about the way Lebron left Cleveland and the partnering of the super stars in South Beach), Tristan Thompson, and Dion Waters.

Is that more enticing than winning more rings in Miami?

We all must prepare ourselves for this craziness starting in October and all the way through June.
God forbid if the Heat don't win a championship. The noise will get so loud that dogs would start howling.

Nevertheless it has already started, and will only continue to get louder through the season. And I've got to do all I can to keep the noise away from me.
Lebron will not go back to Cleveland or anywhere for that matter folks. Not right now. Try again in about 5-8 years.

Dwyane Wade on knees: “There won’t be surgery”

Heats-Dwyane-Wade-out-with-sore-left-knee-R618HKMC-x-large

Those two knees that Dwyane Wade said he had a conversation before game 7 wont need surgery after all. Just a lot of downtime and treatment according to the now 3 time NBA Champion.

‘A lot of rest is going to be key for them. I’m going to treat my knees very well this ummer.’

Those knees were definitely the topic of conversation during the playoffs. With Wade having career lows in scoring, many felt that he was done and there was no way that the Heat would have been able to advance without him.
But he “gutted it out” and brought the city of Miami it’s third Larry O’Brien trophy. Now, go rest up Wade.

SportsBros Poll

The NBA Finals is now down to two games left in Miami as the Spurs win game 5 114-104. The Heat haven’t won back to back games since the 2nd round against the Bulls. Can they win in Miami?

In the meantime, we want to know who you think is the finals MVP leader right now? Danny Green broke the NBA Finals record for 3 pointers made with having made 24. Who did he take over? Ray Allen.

Dwyane Wade has returned to his regular season form scoring 25 points, 6 rebs and 10 assist. Lebron James…well he’s been his normal almost triple double self.

So with all of these players shining in games 4 and 5, we want to know from you…who is the leading person for Finals MVP??

Who’s the leading Finals MVP vote getter after 5 games?
Dwyane Wade
Lebron James
Tim Duncan
Tony Parker
Danny Green

Dwyane Wade surprises teen and escorts her to high school prom

Imagine if you’re a high school senior getting ready for prom. You have a date, but your ideal date would the hometown superstar basketball player. So you create a youtube video asking Dwayne Wade (yes him) to escort you to the prom.

You take a shot almost guaranteeing yourself that you don’t think he will ever answer. But then, as you’re getting ready to go out to the prom (with your second choice of a prom date) the doorbell rings and at the door is….Mr. Wade.

wade

Smooth move by the ailing Heat star as he gets ready for his 3rd consecutive eastern conference finals. Hell he doesn’t have much else to do as the Knicks and Pacers battle it out.

Nice job WoW.

Doubting Dwyane Wade doesn’t work. So why do we continue to?

 

So here we are again, in another playoff year with the Miami Heat, and some things have changed, while some things have stayed the same. Let’s start with the changes.

This years Miami Heat has a

  • better all around team and chemistry
  • a deeper bench
  • a better Lebron James
  • a new baby on the way for Chris Bosh

Now, the things that are the same are

  • Dwyane Wade playing injured in the playoffs
  • Heat fans not using perspective when discussing his role with the team.

I just have one simple message for Heat fans and media who are complaining about the Wade they are seeing night in and night out. SHUT YOUR DAMN MOUTH AND DON’T EVER DOUBT D WADE AGAIN!!!

It doesn’t make sense and I”m sick and tired of trying to make sense of it. Chicago Bulls fans have been crying, begging and pleading with their star Derrick Rose to come back and give their team and city a lift as they have battled in these playoffs.  Game 7 came upon us in Brooklyn, and Bulls faithful thought they would surely see Rose suit up for this do or die game. NOPE. Joakim Noah guaranteed a victory and delivered. Without Rose.

I’m on the record and have documented how I thought he should have came back earlier in this series when the Bulls looked like the walking dead. I can understand how Bulls fans will complain about this.

But what I don’t understand is why Miami Heat fans continue to complain about a guy who is visibly hurt and not 100%…BUT HE’S GIVING THEM MINUTES ON THE FLOOR! Somebody help me please understand this.

It became more evident to me on Monday night when Wade was bumped in the knee by Jimmy Butler that he isn’t right. He left play for a few minutes. I feared the worst. I thought he was done for the series if not the immediate future. Then lo and behold, I hear the announcer say a few minutes later “Dwyane Wade is back at the scorers table getting ready to check in”. WTF?

Okay so maybe he isn’t as hurt as I originally thought. Well that would be better then. Let him come back in and try to get things going.

But then I thought, “wow something is really wrong with Wade if he’s still hurt after all of this rest the team has had since eliminating the Bucks and resting for 8-10 days”. Now with this series with the Bulls looking to end on Wednesday night, what will more rest (and rust) do to this team and more importantly Wade? Is rest the answer, or dare I say….surgery?

Skip Bayless and I think along the same lines here.

Whatever the outcome, Heat fans and media pundits have seen this before with Wade, and should not expect a different outcome.

Is he hurt? Yes.

Is he giving the team something other than 25 points per game? Yes.

Is he injured? Possibly.

Is he Derrick Rose? No.

Now…about this capri suit…

Dear Dwyane Wade

Dear Dwayne,

I know it’s playoff time which means crazy fashion pre and post game, but for real can you tone it down? We get it you love fashion. Wearing your grandmother’s table cloth as a jacket the other night was, um, an interesting choice. I just thought if you were going to wear a table cloth jacket you might have just put some clear plastic over your pants so nothing would spill on them.

I thought after the table cloth jacket and the response from it perhaps you would tone it done a bit, but I was sorely mistaken. You capris pant suit you wore last night was down right offensive. I mean for real? You actually thought wearing your son’s pants was a good look? No one was talking about the game, they were talking about what you wore to the game. Whoever your stylist is doesn’t like you and you need to get rid of them and fast. At this rate they’ll have you wearing one of Gabrielle’s dresses and telling you it’s a stylish kilt imported from the Highlands of Scotland.

Speaking of the ever beautiful Gabrielle, how the hell did you slip out of the hotel room or your Chicago home wearing that and she didn’t stop you to tell you to check one of the many mirrors I assume you have in your house or in the hotel room? The guys from Queer Eye for the Straight Guy were calling foul and they don’t know anything about basketball. Please Dwyane I implore you, just come to the game dressing like you’re going to work and not work a Milan runway show.

If your teammates didn’t crack jokes at you then there are plenty of people online who did:

Wade and Durant Gatorade commercial (video)

wade_durant
At first look at this commercial, I thought it painted Kevin Durant in a bad light.It went back to a bad time in his career, having lost the NBA Championship to Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat. Never would I think that an athlete would allow a moment like that to be used for a commercial.
But I continued to watch and saw what I think was pretty creative. If you haven’t seen it yet, I won’t ruin it for you.
Take a look

Dwyane Wade and sons Dove commercial

wadesons

This Dove commercial couldn’t have come at a better time for D-Wade. With his ex-wife Siovaughn constantly trying to drag his name through the mud (she appeared on Dr. Phil recently) in the media, any positive for him is nothing but a plus.

Wade and his sons Zion and Zaire filmed this commercial for what looks to be another endorsement opp for the Miami Heat’s star guard. Wade has been public about his fatherhood and how important it has been to him. Although it’s a commercial, there is a lot of genuiness behind it all.

Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade named EC POW

"player of the week, yo!"

The in season awards just keep piling up for the Miami Heat players, and coaches. After dominating from December through February with Player of the Month awards, Lebron James slight relaspse in play gave way for one of his team mates to bask in some love.

MIAMI, FL –The NBA announced today that Miami HEAT guard Dwyane Wade was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played Monday, March 4, through Sunday, March 10. This marks the 45th time in franchise history a HEAT player has earned Player of the Week honors and the 16th time Wade has earned the honor, tying the most in team history.

Wade led the HEAT to a perfect 4-0 record averaging 25.3 points, 5.0 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 3.50 steals while shooting 60.6 percent from the field and 88.2 percent from the foul line. He posted one double-double while leading the team in steals and minutes three times each and in points and assists once each. He scored at least 20 points in each contest and has now posted nine consecutive 20-point games. He also shot at least 50 percent from the field in all four games and has currently hit at least 50 percent of his field goal attempts in 10-straight games, one shy from tying his career-best streak (minimum 10 attempts). Additionally, he recorded at least one steal in each contest last week and now has a steal in a career-best 22 consecutive games, which also ties for the second-longest such streak in HEAT franchise history.

 Wade started the week off posting a 32-point, 10-assist double-double while grabbing seven rebounds in a 16-point, 97-81, win at Minnesota on March 4. Then on March 6 vs. Orlando, he shot 10-of-16 from the field, including a perfect 4-of-4 from the foul line, while scoring 24 points and recording a game-high four steals in a 97-96 victory. He posted 22 points, four assists, three steals, two rebounds and a block helping the HEAT to a 102-93 win vs. Philadelphia on March 8. The victory clinched a postseason berth for the HEAT, marking the earliest date and most games remaining to have achieved the feat in franchise history. Wade capped off the week recording a season-high six steals while scoring 23 points in a 14-point, 105-91, win vs. Indiana.

Among league leaders this season, Wade ranks tied for eighth in steals per game (1.79), ninth in scoring average (21.8), 21st in field goal percentage (.523), 27th in assists per game (4.9) and tied for 36th in minutes per game (34.7).
