Dwyane Wade Says Hearts Full of Hate Cost Heat NBA Championship
Wade recently made the comments on Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski's SiriusXM radio program.
Via the AP:
In an interview with Mike Krzyzewski on the Duke coach's show on SiriusXM Radio, Wade says "we wanted to win to spite people" last season, the first where he had LeBron James and Chris Bosh as teammates.Wade says the team also "played off hatred."
Wade continued, "I believe that's the reason we didn't win a championship."
Those emotions certainly are understandable giving the immense media and public scrutiny the team was under last season, but as anyone who's seen Star Wars knows crossing over to the dark side means failure.
As Yoda would say: "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering." And suffer this team did.
Of course, as fans, we know that to a certain degree players are playing for, well, themselves. Yet, we would like to see the team fueled not by the hatred of others but by their support from fans.
