hes not going anywhere. trying to distract them from the lebron meeting they have tomorrow or give them a sense of hope for when lebron stays in cle but all they will get is boozer.

Oh my god I've been sitting here for the last few days just wishing to the basketball gods "BRING D WADE TO CHICAGO!" It's so perfect and it makes sense for both sides. I would go ****ing nuts if we pulled of Wade and or Bron.

Keep telling yourself that. I'd say he's figured out there's no one in Miami to help him win a championship and he doesn't want to be left in the dust. And Pat Riley's a ****, showing off his rings to Lebron. How classless.

If he isnt just trying to get their minds off of Lebron and this is legit, then this problly means the LBJ-Wade-Bosh isnt gonna happen in MIA.

1- pretty much all indications show bosh coming here.

2- how is that classless at all? id love to hear your explanation for that.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. If Wade goes to Chicago that eliminates them from the LeBron hunt and makes NY a stronger choice.

If he is trying to distract us from Lebron like a lot of people are saying then why would he bring his agent with him. We would meet with Lebron regardless of what Wade says.

marlinsfan24
07-02-2010, 05:26 PM
Wade's just making sure he's got his options open with how the offseason has been. In case the Heat lose out. Riley's confident he'll be back and he's got some personal appearances next week in Miami, he ain't leaving.

1. Last I knew, Bosh is meeting with the Bulls tonight.

2. You think Reinsdorf doesn't have rings? lol You think James has no idea that when you win a championship in the NBA, you get a ring? It was stupid and pointless....and classless. Yeah, let's go showing off our rings to someone who has never won one. That shouldn't p1ss him off. *rolls eyes*

yes it is possible wade leaves, probably not at all. but possible. the only way he leaves imo is if the heat dont get anybody. if we could even get boozer or lee he would prolly stay. a meeting really doesnt mean much. neither do rumors now, bc everybody has their sources and links but the bottom line is that everything changes every second.

wades probably going to be in miami his entire career just like zo was

This is so stupid. How is Wades meeting tonight going to effect our meeting with Lebron tomorrow. It definitely doesn't effect any chance of getting a PF because we also want to max guys. I mean if Wade tell us tonight that he is on the fence that wouldn't effect us meeting with Lebron tomorrow and getting him to commit. Lebron is the better and younger player. He comes before Wade regardless of what he says tonight.

Two pairings make absolutely no sense.

One is Lebron and DWade.

The other is Rose and DWade. Only one ball.

Yea, I'm sure they've been distracted twice with two formal meetings.

Matrix3132
07-02-2010, 05:49 PM
I'm wondering if anyone else doesn't think Rose and Wade in the same back court good idea. Obviously they are both great players but both players need to play with a guard who is a 3-point threat (regardless of whoever the big men are). If they played together, defenses will be able to pack it in and they would get worse shots and because they'd have to share the ball, they'd each get less shots.

It also only takes 1 understanding. That a Championship is the number 1 priority. They are all all star caliber players that have the ability to make it work.

VivaLaShark
07-02-2010, 05:52 PM
Again I don't see how Dwade is a distraction when he comes for a 2nd meeting? That strengthens the Bulls overall position with everyone, when even DWade who was widely thought to dislike the Bulls comes away from meeting one impressed and says lets meet again.

That makes Chicago seem like a legit place and gives us more chips to work with at the table. Even if it is a bluff.

Bosh didn't want to goto Miami he did not want to play the C position, and If Chalmers was traded for Something then DWade would have to play the PG and he doesn't want to do that. Chicago is the only place where everyone gets to play their natural position, will have a bench to help out and that will be able to get them all at least $13mil with a S&T of Luol and Joe Alexander etc.

Reports from the Bulls camp (potential bias) relate that the Bulls have Boozer if they want him. Perhaps Wade sees Boozer, Rose, Noah and sees a better chance there.


I actually don't see much of anything, I don't think it's a "distraction technique," I don't see Wade leaving Miami, I just see perhaps they intrigued him with something and he wants his agent to take a look at the offer to give him another opinion.

Did Wade wear a tuxedo with a bow tie to the interview and ask for his drinks shaken not stirred? Come on guys you are making it seem like he's not a guy exploring possible options, but some dude secretly collecting and passing information. Live in reality and realize he's not that in love with Miami, he will check out his choices and decide which location will be most benificial to him.

honestly rose and wade on the same team. I dont think thats a title contender. I dont want to be a downer but rose is not a shooter, which means rose will have to bring the ball up and what does wade do? he is not a pure spot up shooter. I just dont really get it. I would think they would go after more of a bosh or amare. then try to sign a mike miller or somebody like that IMO

rose
ray allen
Deng
Bosh
Noah

is greater than

rose
wade
Deng
below average PF
Noah

I love Dwade but he just doesnt fit there IMO.

Plus if you want to win a title you need a dominate big man( unless your name is Michael Jordan)

Tensions have been heightened amid the Heat's bid to not only add additional free agents, but also to retain star guard Dwyane Wade.

It has been confirmed that Wade is meeting for the second time in two days with the Chicago Bulls, a team that had one point had been considered a longshot for his services.

Wade met with the Bulls during Thursday's opening day of NBA free agency at the United Center.

The Friday meeting is at the offices of Wade's Chicago-based agent, Henry Thomas, with Bulls executives Gar Forman and John Paxson reportedly in attendance. Thomas also represents Toronto Raptors free-agent power forward Chris Bosh.

The timing of the meeting also could be Chicago working in advance of its Saturday meeting with LeBron James, hoping to be able to convince Wade to show patience in the process, as the Bulls try to create a Wade-James pairing, or possibly even try to land those two, as well as Bosh.

The meeting was requested by the Bulls. A party familiar with Wade's demeanor said he is not the type to turn down such a request. So it could be as minimal as that.

Asked about Wade's second visit with the Bulls, Heat President Pat Riley said, "We feel very strongly about our commitment to Dwyane and our fans."

Having met earlier in the day with Cleveland Cavaliers free-agent forward LeBron James in Cleveland, the Heat's traveling party had been planning to return to Chicago before word of Wade's follow-up meeting with his hometown team.

Whether the situation could be considered dire is another issue.

No sooner did word of Wade's meeting come out, then Wade, on his Twitter account, posted, "Imma start a website called What little do they know.com."

He then offered his preferred shorthand for "laughing to myself."

David Aldridge reporting that Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are meeting with the Bulls right now, along with their agent. Seems an agreement is imminent . . .LeBron is supposedly waiting in the wings. . .Serious damage control time for the HEAT, who are meeting with David Lee, but could be about to lose the only piece that matters.

And from Bosh 8 minutes ago as of this posting:

So no Bosh was not meeting simultaneously with Wade and the Bulls or at least not with the Bulls b/c he is heading to meet with them NOW.

Chicago cameras had Wade entering the agent's office at 655pm. Bosh can tweet from his cell phone, he could be in a room waiting for it to start. With Wade arriving at 655, I wouldn't expect a meeting to begin until 730 or 745.

You're wrong. Sorry and I don't mean to be rude, but you're just wrong. Chicago Sportsnite has Wade live ON CAMERA walking into his agent's building at 655pm, they cut in the last minute of their show and announced that a meeting with Wade, Bosh, their agent and Bulls brass was about to happen.

Oh my god I've been sitting here for the last few days just wishing to the basketball gods "BRING D WADE TO CHICAGO!" It's so perfect and it makes sense for both sides. I would go ****ing nuts if we pulled of Wade and or Bron.

Nothing against Chi-town but Wade and Rose would be horrible fits together. Lebron should be your main concern.

Wade and Rose are both around 6' 4". Both have inconsistent 3 point shots, both need the ball in their hands to succeed, both are slashers.

You essentially have two of the same player, Lebron would be a much better compliment to Rose although it would be cool to have that Chicago connection with Rose and Wade.

But the first thing that comes to mind is Starbury and Steve Francis when they tried that tandem on the knicks, both players did fine on their own, but their impact was barely felt because they were the same player.

And before you hate, Starbury and Francis were allstars at the time.

I was referring to the fact that his article said a deal was "imminent", which now has been refuted by Wade's agent, the 2nd most credible person that could refute that report other than Wade himself. Secondly, having the wrong facts for some of the story may mean his credibility is suspect for some other parts of the story. In addition, it is very hard to conclude with any sort of definitiveness from seeing someone go inside a Building, as to what they are doing inside the building.

I will also add this. If both of those guys are working out a deal, why would his agent tweet things like yes we are working on a deal or a deal is imminent. If for any reason a deal fell through then that would make every one involved look bad imo. All I know is is that there is visual evidence of Wade being there and Bosh tweeting he is in a meeting with the Bulls right now. Everything else is BS imo.

He also told one of the Miami Herald writers a group meeting didn't happen and the report was incorrect, but if you want to keep buying into (intentional) shady reporting by some of the media then be my guest.

Wade's meeting was over two hours ago while Bosh was having lunch three hours ago (aka at the same time Wade's meeting started), and on top of that Bosh tweeted just 40 minutes ago that his meeting with Chicago was up next, so why the hell does he Twitter that if he was just in there already for Chad Ford's group fantasy.

Haven't seen that Miami Herald writer's report anywhere in this thread.

And seriously, you have to be misreading or something.

Wade was on camera entering the agent's building at 655pm. Perhaps he came back after his previous meeting. About 20 minutes later, Bosh tweeted that his meeting was about to come up (right before 730pm CT). Why is Wade in the agent's building when the agent is going to be tied up with Bosh in the meeting at 730/745?


A group meeting hadn't happened yet when it was first reported. It was going TO happen, Wade had just arrived. And Aldridge is taking his report from Chicago reporters who are actually physically there.


I have a feeling you're taking this as a group meeting already happened, which wasn't the report. It was that at the time of the report (initially 655pm when Wade was seen entering the building and less than an hour before the time of Bosh's meeting), a group meeting was GOING to happen.

True, but most media has been saying (before that tweet came out) that Wade was going back to Miami. Only the last 3-4 hours have reports come out thinking he might go anywhere else.

What annoys me a great deal is all the shady reporting by these so called experts. A lot of them clearly have an agenda, which has to do with coming up with as many headlines as possible, not caring if they are true or not as long as it gets them readers.

Why is Wade in the agent's building when the agent is going to be tied up with Bosh in the meeting at 730/745?

Who says the agent is even present during the Bosh meeting? As far as I know he wasn't present when Wade had his (first) meeting, and I don't think he was there when Riley met Bosh for the first time. First meetings are usually only to hear a team's sales pitch, etc. They are not necessarily meant to talk detailed contract immediately.

We still only have Wade filmed going into a building. That is all that we know for sure, and yet one of these ESPN hobos managed to turn it into another frenzy.
