Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat said yesterday that he wanted to be paid if he played on the the U.S.A. Basketball team in the Olympics here in 2012….
Should Wade and others be paid for their participation in the Olympics???
Aren’t there plenty of other NBA players out there, that would be willing to play and represent our country for FREE and they would not be charging for their services?????
Wade came back today and said today that “I don’t want to be paid to go to the Olympics”……
Cann you jus take back what you already said yesterday? It is like we now know how Wade really feels based upon what he said back on Wednesday…..Wade is coming out and saying, “I take it back, I take it back”, cause he has hurt his image and now he is doing a quick reverse and trying to repair that image…..By the way, Ray Allen of the Celtics, said he wants to get paid too…..Got to be some other NBA players that really want to play in this event, the Olympics of all things…..
Wade at ESPN.com today:
Wade said Thursday that he was responding to a question about Olympians being paid, and never said he needed to be paid to play.
Wade later tweeted that pride for his country “motivates me more than any $$$ amount.”
