PBT Extra: More than money, Dwyane Wade chased respect to Chicago

13 Comments

Dwyane Wade is the greatest player in Miami Heat history.

But that wasn’t enough to keep him. It wasn’t just money, it was what the money represented — respect. Wade felt he had sacrificed for the Heat and wanted to be paid back. Instead, they offered him less and less (reportedly a one-year, $10 million offer was the first one on the table from Miami). So Wade is headed to his hometown of Chicago. I talk about it in our latest PBT Extra.

Also, I’d still rather be the Miami Heat going forward.
