The new Collective Bargaining Agreement is starting to make teams strongly re-consider their spending habits, and the days of hoarding top-name free agents look to be coming to an end.
In 2010, the Miami Heat were able to pull off a coup of sorts by signing LeBron James and Chris Bosh to join Dwyane Wade. Each of them took a pay cut to play together, and after this season will have the chance to opt out of their deals.
Chicago native, Dwyane Wade is selling the condo he owns in his hometown for $1.8 million.
The 3900 square foot townhome has 4 beds, 3.5 bedrooms, and is located not far from domestic locations such as a Whole Foods about a mile out, and great places for entertaining like V.I.P.'s Gentleman's club less than 2 miles away. The description from Scarpa Real Estate says:
On Christmas Day, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat will be taking on Kobe and the Lakers. The NBA stars always break out a Christmas inspired sneaker on this day that has the sneaker community giddy with excitement.
The first to unveil their Christmas surprise is Li-Ning with its Way of Wade "Christmas." This frog looking green upper is actually considered a stingray-inspired print. Still, I'm going with frog. The green upper is complimented by red laces and branding, while "Christmas" is stamped on the heel, bolstering the Christmas spirit.
On Tuesday night the Miami Heat received their 2013 NBA Championship rings, and lifted their championship banner in a pre-game ring ceremony. Members of the Heat weren't the only ones who were given a ring however, as Dwyane Wade surprised long time girlfriend, Gabrielle Union, with one of her own.
Tuesday was actually Union's 41st birthday, and D Wade stopped by her party at Hyde night club for a few minutes before taking off for Philadelphia with the team, and in that time he gave her a box which had her own Heat championship ring.
When Ray Allen left the Boston Celtics in 2012 to join the Miami Heat, certain members of the C's spoke out against him fleeing the team. Now that Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Doc Rivers have left Boston themselves, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade think they were hypocritical in calling out Ray.

The Miami Heat have been dropping behind the scenes videos on their Instagram page today, beginning with a look at LeBron James going insane in an industrial dungeon while working out. We also received a preview of alternate jerseys the Heat will be rocking this year. Most notable is the new red on red alternate jerseys. Miami has used red jerseys before, but with white lettering. These new red uniforms have red lettering, with only a hint of white outline.
While Dwyane Wade has left Jordan Brand for Li-Ning, sneaker customizer Sole-On-Canvas imagines what his Player-Edition Jordan Brand sneakers could have looked like.
Using the fire red Jordan 5 as a base, he adds custom "3" stitching near the heel and Miami Heat coloring on the midsole and tongue. A solid custom effort for sure, would you cop this pair if it was an official Jordan Brand release? Let us know using the cop or not feature.
Kevin Durant and Dwyane Wade have exchanged some words on social media over ranking the NBA's Top 10 players. While on Cinesport, Durant was shown Sports Illustrated's ranking of the league's Top 10 and asked what he thought. One change he wanted made was remove D Wade at the number 8 spot and replace him with KD's friend and former teammate, James Harden.
With wealth comes the opportunity to make extravagant purchases. While NBA players love to rack up obscene tabs in night clubs and blow cash on sports cars, usually the biggest investment they'll make is in their homes. Some of these residences are hard for us normal folks to even comprehend. Let's take a look at 10 Most Impressive Homes Owned By NBA Players.
Dwyane Wade was one of the more outspoken athletes after the death of Trayvon Martin, and he voiced his outrage at the verdict of the George Zimmerman trial. The night that Zimmerman was found not guilty, Wade tweeted, how he was “saddened as a father,” and wondered how he would explain this to his own sons.
Wow!!! Stunned!!! Saddened as a father!!! Some1 make sense of this verdict for me right now please!!! Don't worry I'll wait...
On Friday we posted a photo of Dwyane Wade's ex wife in the streets of Chicago holding a sign that read "NBA Miami Heat Star Mother Of His Children Out On The Streets," and now we get more info about why Siovaughn Funches-Wade was "protesting." It all stems from the court case between the two, as we reported earlier had sued the Heat star, and then that lawsuit was removed.
