Earlier today, Dwayne Wade let an insensitive comment slip out when asked, “What will happen if you guys start the season, 0-3?”
“We enjoy the bulls eye. Plus, there’s going to be times when we lose 2-3 games in a row, and it seems like the world has crashed down. You all are going to make it seem like the World Trade is coming down again, but it’s not going to be nothing but a couple basketball games.”-Dwayne Wade
…First, I don’t care if it was his intention to hurt the feelings of thousands of people who lost loved ones on the tragic day of 9/11/01. With or without intention, it happened! Obviously he did not want to say it, not only because most people believe Wade to be a nice guy, but also because of what a comment like this can do for an image. Wade has an image, that he has created with all the T-Mobile Fav-5 commericals with Charles Barkley, that he does not want to tarnish, so the fact that in his apology statement, he said “if I offended someone I am sorry”, is crap because he obviously offended a ton of New Yorkers, who have become even more determined to beat the HEAT!
