You play basketball you little twit..Your not saving lives you pompous $#%. I mean, what a hundred million already isn't enough for you? I think the Olympic team should take him right off the roster. He obviously doesn't realize that it isn't about him. It's about the country. It's about taking pride in that. Most athletes devote their entire life to get to the Olympics and will never be payed like NBA players. So wake up you douche bag..I think his ego is overflated to the max. You won one Championship. Enough said.

I'm just so tired of all these whiny diva athletes and their minor complaining. The rest of us have to work tough jobs for pennies. You get paid millions to be a child..Grow up chump..I wish somebody would just smash him in the face like he did Kobe..But break his jaw too, not just his nose.


I used to actually like him. Now I am at the point where I can't stand him the most. His "ego" has grown to supersize status. He's probably my least favorite player in the league..
Rant over.
LOL.... I still like the guy but slowly I'm converting over to Durant. I love his game, and his humility. I'm hoping he can maintain it.

it really doesn't bother me one way or the other. if a player wants to decline an invitation to play because he isn't getting paid then do so. there is always another player willing to take that player's spot. personally, i think the USA team should field different players every four years. it gives other NBA players a chance at getting a medal. kobe, lebron, and wade already have a gold medal. let's give other players a chance to play in the olympics which is a once in a lifetime experience.

The primadonna twins in Miami seem to get worse with time. The rest of the country will be rooting for the Bulls to knock them off, and it won't be out of jealousy.

Can you blame Wade? With his $20 million a year salary, he can barely buy a box of cereal (sarcasm)! If you don't understand the fact of representing your country in the olympics and the pride it should bring you, than you should not be in it at all.

Athletes generally have to pay their own way to the Olympics, and this guy playing a sport that actually covers the athletes expenses thinks he should be compensated for his play as well? **** you dwade!

Not a single wrestler or judoka, or 75% of other American athletes get their trip paid for. My brother in laws brother is a 3 time Olympic swimmer for the Guatemalan national Olympic team. He has had to pay his own way, hotels, food and so on just to be able to have the honor of representing his country. I know 2 Olympic judoka who had to pay their entire trips and such.

********* dwade, you pompous self serving diva POS!

Ok rant over!
Thank you.

NBA is disguising. What happens to full body contact we had in the 90s? All these cheap hand checks fall is pissing me off.

Street ball is better than NBA. At the very least, we don't call sissy fouls.

Jordan, who IRL can be a dick, at least had the IQ to be charming and not say stooopid sheeet.

Probably why the old man makes as much endorsement income as Kobe, Wade or Lebron...combined. Yeah, let that sink in.

Michael Jordan makes more from endorsements now than he did as a player - Ball Don't Lie - NBA*Blog - Yahoo! Sports

Could be Lebron's entourage of people influencing Wade, but not sure....he has been kinda douche the last few years though. Is his agent part of Lebron's management firm?
