All Dwyane Wade wants in order to secure his stay in Miami is a team capable of contending for a championship again. And for our part, we salute his willingness to put aside his contractual concerns in pursuit of wins. What's that? That's all he wants, as long as you don't count a max contract as part of what he wants? That doesn't seem quite as selfless.

Becoming the latest athlete to publicly play armchair general manager (and in his defense, he's more qualified than Ryan Bruan), Wade suggested his willingness to let the Heat empty the bank vaults is linked to the team getting good in a hurry. Of course, he may have a point, at least if you're one of many thinking Michael Beasley and Jermaine O'Neal are not championship-caliber sidekicks.


I know wade is a good guy (from what i know), but I think there are sometimes ball players should worry about doing their job (playing ball) and staying out of the economics. I know D wade is a special player, but if the owner thought he could fill the seats with a player making half of Dwade money, its only a good business decision. Its great that he cares about winning. But in times like these, i think it makes sense for players to the be quiet and take the money.

Ooooh I never wanted to imagine the possibilities but after hearing this I can hope he comes home to Chicago. C'mon Wade you have Rose at the point so therefore never a double team on you.
