    Dwyane Wade Taking Practice Shots During Canadian National Anthem



    Miamiís Dwyane Wade got in a few shots once the Canadian national anthem had started before Game 3 between the Heat and the Raptors. That is a violation of the NBA rules. If he had taken one shot, realized he was late and walked over to the line of players standing for the anthem it would be one thing, but he just keeps on shooting.

    Repugnant, now if he had done it during the star spangled banner that would be ok.

    As per Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post.

    "I'm not thinking about nothing like that. I'm thinking about what I need to do before every game that I prepare for and have been doing my whole career. I understand whatever's said from that standpoint, but I'm not a disrespectful person. If anybody thinks I'm being disrespectful to their country, then they have no idea who Dwyane Wade is.”

    “People see video footage of what they want to see,” he said. “I have a ritual where I come off the bench and going into the anthem line I'll have a layup or dunk and then make a shot. Here, we always make sure we come out and give thanks to our troops first, then we do our anthem as well. It's just a ritual. It's something different when we're playing Canada here at home and the clock starts at a different time.”


    Why do I get the feeling that he potentially made this worse than better?

    Because he's a brainless, tactless, disrespectful idiot?

    Game 5 will be interesting when he comes back to Toronto. Boobirds will be everywhere every time he touches the ball.

    He wasn't familiar with the anthem. 99.9% of blacks would not guess the Canadian anthem right in a line up with 5 other national anthems.

    Russia's national anthem is the best one.

    Good melody.

    Star spangled banner is mediocre.

    I'm sure he might have heard a bar or two of it in Toronto during the first two games.

    Canada possibly might be a great country but saying the heat lost because of wade shooting during the anthem is asinine

    IMO I agree with the its just a song no biggie and believe that Nationalism is the worst...on the other hand if every one in the world showed just a bit more respect to each other maybe this planet wouldnt be the shit pot it has turned into.

    D Wade is one of the all time great off guards, but he's always been a bit of a cuntt. People just don't realise it because he has charisma. He broke Kobe's nose once in an all star game. In an all star game where nobody is playing D he elbows Kobe in the face.
