There are a lot of things on the mind of residents and politicians of Miami-Dade County.


Recession, Storms in the Tropics, budget for the schools, Dwayne Wade.

What?

Yup. You heard that correctly. South Florida's biggest sports star could get an honor bestowed upon him no one else ever has.

The sports fans throughout the town (and the Heat) have referred the county as Wade County, it may no longer be a marketing concoction.


The county may be renamed Miami-Wade County from July 1st through 8th.

The county commission will hear a resolution from Commissioner Joe A. Martinez that will change the name of Miami-Dade County to Miami-Wade County for that week of the free agent moratorium.

Wade may agree to terms anytime, but cannot officially be announced as a member of the Miami Heat until the moratorium is over on the 8th.

Honoring his athletic prowess is not the only reason for the presentation of the resolution, but also recognize his contribution to the community through his Wade's World Foundation.

So, as LeBron is getting the sales pitch from the Mayor of New York, Wade is getting an entire county named after him.

Who said this wasn't getting ridiculous?


Hell, I say Broward should step up and rename their county LeBroward County.

well bulls fans have a right to be mad at wade. i mean wade did talk crap about a franchise he has NEVER played for. it's not about him not coming to chicago, just the fact he talked crap about the bulls while never playing for the bulls organization. i mean wades my favorite player, but even i was like wtfatre you doing wade?

It doesn't need to be the deciding factor lol. there are plenty of reasons for wade to stay. Its just for the city to show their appreciation.....it can't hurt. After all....he is the greatest sports icon this town has ever seen (no disrespect to Dan Marino).

He is from Chicago himself, has an ongoing relationship to Michael Jordan and has talked with him numerous times, and he has also obviously played in the NBA, and knows the Heat organization's level of loyalty.

I really find it funny some basketball fans who may or may not even be from Chicago themselves, never spoke a word to Michael Jordan, and obviously don't play in the NBA feel they know more about the Bulls organization's loyalty and whether Wade has reason to question it.

I honestly think none of that has anything to do with anything... and many Bulls fans are more jealous than all other factors. You guys wanted Wade, and are now offended that he made remarks leading to the idea he's leery of signing with them.

I mean I can understand that they are pissed, but so many of your fans are acting like they never wanted Wade and that he's nothing special. I can understand being pissed at him, but they take it too far.

All he did was say he doesn't think you guys are loyal and he probably got that from when he was talking to Jordan.

People on PSD don't have short term memory loss, I still remember how you guys were all over Wade last off-season saying he'll leave that crappy team in MIA and play along with another hometown hero in Rose. I also still remember the thread about him selling his house in MIA and it just flooded with Bull fans saying "This is a sign of him coming home".

And how **** does that even matter in this thread??? The guys said "****** him, ****** his county".

Besides, Wade said what he felt. He is more close to Jordan than the entire bulls fanbase. He is in this business, he knows a lot of personnels, thus he knows inside stuff more than outside fans who rely solely on newspapers and net for info.

yea i mean the guy obviously is trying to bait, but still if wade is talking **** about the bulls organization because of how jordan feels then that is still wrong. i mean i know wade is trying to lure FA's to miami and that was probably still his intention, but jordan only felt the bulls were disloyal because jordan expected to be handed like 5 percent of the franchise over to him for nothing. thats pretty public information now. i just dont get how someone can talkcrap for not even knowing the organization and going off someone who is still bitter about the situation.

Bulls fans are not among them. I am too lazy to bring up those threads but the entire bulls fanbase was on Wade's bandwagon specially since last summer (even 2 months ago) that he was going to leave "Miami's ****ing organization" :facepalm::facepalm: Now all of you are acting like wisemen:facepalm:

if the bulls werent loyal, paxson would have been fired by now. if they werent loyal ask any of the former bulls players who either work for the organization who are saying wade is way off or the ones like bob love who is in the hospital, hasn't worked or played for the bulls in 30 years and the bullsa are paying his hospital bills. like i said, wade may be from the city, but he has never played for the bulls. jordan like i said still is bitter so how are you gonna take the word of a man who is bitter? please explain that to me

I'm not necessarily take their word fully... but I sure as hell am taking their word on the Bulls organization over some random fan who isn't even close to the situation whatsoever.

Like I said, it baffles me that fans think they know more about the Bulls' loyalty than NBA players themselves. And please, link to these "former bulls players who either work for the organization who are saying wade is way off"... yes, please do.... and they better not be current Bulls employees because that isn't a credible source.

Okay maybe not all but like 90% of them were sure he would leave giving all there reasons why. I think wades words were taken out of context and maniplated by the media. He loves chicago he goes there in the summer but he just loves miami more. Bulls fans just got pissy (no thanks to the misportrayal by the media) once his true intentions came out. And now a lot of them are caught with their tail between their legs and it gives me endless enjoyment.

I personally like our rivalry, the bulls along with the NY Knicks are two teams i hope get better during FA (just not taking any of the players i want for my team of course : P ) enough to have build it up a bit more and see some more epic games in the playoffs between one another. But still i dont like when certain fans wether they be Bulls,Knicks, or even HEAT fans get to cocky about a player or subject NBA wise and think its almost a sure thing when really its not even logical and to gloat about it makes it even worse.

But im offtopic now good luck in Free agency.

first off, let me say how that was a mature response and yes i do agree some probably got mad thinking wade should come home and such. now im not on here as much as some of you are, maybe you guys saw bulls fans say stuff i didn't, but most of the ones i saw didnt, but i did see some.

It's so funny (Sad). Every time I see a thread having ANYTHING to do with Miami or Dwyane Wade I know one thing for CERTAIN. That I will find the VAST MAJORITY of fans outside of Miami fans posting are BULLS fans...Having nothing constructive to say. They see a Wade or Miami thread as nothing more than an opportunity to spew their bitterness and cynicism. As someone else had posted, learn from JB please, and be objective.

It sucks that many Bulls fans on PSD do this, because I see a thread I'm interested in learning something from, and all it turns into is a hate fest courtesy of Chi fans from the outset...and it's disappointing, because all I ever see in these threads is bickering about STUPID SHYTE, and I learn nothing that I already didn't know...That Bulls fans HATE the Heat and Wade...WE ALL GET IT OKAY.

as for renaming the county temporarily: I think it's a great idea. Why not honor a figure who means so much to the community? It's just a way of showing appreciation and gratitude...But what would Bulls fans know of this?

So basically 1 person has said the Bulls are loyal. Bob Love & Randy Brown work for the Bulls, so they don't count.

Anyway, this debate is moot because all that matters at the end of the day is what Wade thinks, and what he says in the media. If he said he has reasons to question their loyalty, I believe the reasons are sound.

you just said someone who isnt playing for the bulls. second they have 8 guys, 2 of which have died in the last year who is working for the bulls. not including others who have gotten jobs around the NBA or in other organizations because they worked for the bulls in the past like bj armstrong and bill cartwright. so the bulls hiring former bulls players inst loyalty?thats a sign of loyalty and respect. i dont know what you are talking about and what jay williams said, please find me another organization that paid someone for a year and took care of him after he was injured in a motorcycle accident that was in the contract that he signed and he wasnt suppose to have. so he breached the contract and still took care of him. i would like to see any other organization do that.

Read again. I said people who aren't current Bulls employees.

Anyway you guys keep bringing up examples of why they are so loyal, but aren't bringing up quotes of past players or past employees talking about their loyalty. Only 1 guy who doesn't currently work for them has stepped up.

And to your baiting remarks about Miami's supposed fairweather fans, I'll leave that alone, because this debate is about the franchise's loyalty, not fans smart guy.

An organizations loyalty to their players and fans loyalty are two different things. Most miami fans know south florida is a fair weather location but the HEAT head office are in no way reflections of some of the fans. So when they argue loyalty its usually about the organizations not the fans
