Transcript from Dwyane Wade's pregame about infant son

YOUR PERSONAL LIFE WAS IN THE NEWS TODAY. WOULD YOU LIKE TO COMMENT ABOUT THAT?

WADE: I’m in the public eye, so obviously that’s a part of it. It comes with the territory. But, it’s kind of … as I’ve always done my whole life … is always focus on what’s most important to me and my family, and that’s being a great father. I’ve always tried to show my importance in my kids’ lives and it doesn’t change now. So, me and my lady and my family have continued to move forward and I think that’s evident with the ring and the proposal that I gave her with our lives. 

But, yeah, I had a time a part in our break, in our pain and our hurt, a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son that was born healthy. So, I’m moving on.

HOW OLD IS THAT SON?

WADE: Very young. About a month old or so.

AND YOU’VE HAD A CHANCE TO SEE HIM?

WADE: Yeah, I’ve got a chance to see him. You know me. I’m involved in my kids’ lives. When my kids were living at home with me, or wasn’t living at home with me, I tried to do everything I could to see them. Obviously I got custody of them for different reasons, but nothing changes with my life. Like I’ve said, this is something that my family knows and my now fiancée worked through when we got back together, and understood that we wanted to continue our lives together and continue supporting our family and we’re going to do that. That’s what I’ve always done.

DOES IT IN ANY WAY COMPROMISE THE MESSAGE BEHIND A FATHER FIRST OR ANYTHING?

WADE: It would compromise it if I wasn’t a father first. I’m always going to be a father first. That doesn’t change. If you decide to when you can be a father, that’s when it compromises. But, like I said, this is something, obviously, private for my family that we will continue to deal with a family but we have a blessing to the bloodline, to the Wade bloodline. And from that standpoint, it doesn’t, to me, state anything differently from what I’ve always shown.

Apparently, Kevin Federline is also D.Bag Wade's son too. Although Kevin insists that it's the Birdman

Wade won't keep it in his pants. Past alimony, future alimony and child support gonna make that money disappear from those pockets. Oh well.....Bees for threes...Bosh and now Beasley..Go Heat!

Another white knuckle finish win...despite not having Birdman & losing Wade & Cole during the game & having Chalmers play like he was a Nugget. 6 on 4 makes it tough...and when UD shoots another airball the 7 on 3 moments are really painful. Wonder if the Beas haters saw his clutch 3 ball winner...?

Beasley with ANOTHER game winner! Where you at eyeballtwo? I told you!

Right here sunshine. I can go to any local YMCA in the greater Miami area and find a guy who can catch the ball with his shoulders squared to the basket and make - feet planted - and hit a jumper from the top of the key....hell, I can do that.

Here's the problem:

“For [James] to have trust in me like Ray Allen,” Beasley said. “It means a lot, but it’s over, it happened, I won the game. I’m definitely happy for it, but it’s on to the next one.”

First off ass, you aren't Ray Allen, and NEVER will be, and LBJ is smart enough to know the difference. Second off ass, 'I won the game'. See, this idiot STILL doesn't get what this team is about. He's still talking like he's in Minnesota or Phoenix (who is really spinning out of control without beas). Grow up little boy, you ain't in Kansas anymore.

No love for the inbound ball pressure on Denver's last possession? Why wasn't our kid in the game? Oh, you can still find time for UD to his thing? Yep.

So let's get back to dissecting our 10th through 14th positions on our team and who we need to trade to get minimally (potentially worse) better.

3-1 on a tough road trip, with MANY injuries. We are the deepest team in the league, period. (also, if you like your health care plan, you can keep it, period)

^^^ Ass??? LMAO! I don't see anything wrong with what he said. He did win the game. He was excited. Remember he hit 2 game winning free throws last week also. And of course Haslem was in the game for defensive purposes. Beasley is not a good defender, everyone knows that.

Yes, beas is our savior. How did we win 2 straight titles without him? And if we don't win this year.....damn right, I'm laying it right at his feet.

His mentality is the ass part. He didn't win the game. Do you even listen to LBJ, Bosh, Wade, SPO, when we win close games? Has any of them EVER said "I" won the game? Nope, never. They all, very professionally, acknowledge their teammates roll in getting them to the point of the game to make a play.

Hitting an open jumper from the top of the key - no dribble, squared up - wow!!! Is that the highest standard we can set for this bum? I can hit 5 of 10 from that spot today, right now. Guess I need a couple of drug related offenses and then I can expect a call from Riles, offering a contract (non-guaranteed, of course)

Way to bash Beasley's character after he won another game. Especially on a post about Wade's infidelities. I think I remember you jumping on Beasley after Haslam's weed problems too.
GTFO of here!

Good game.... Good win.....

Happy New Year's All...

PLZ do me a favor?

Get Faried....

Don't worry BKY...Beas is slowly winning over E-Ball while taking more minutes from UD.

Now... if we could ever pry away his blind loyalty to Chalmers.

Eyeballtwo, If we lose to the Pacers in the East finals it has nothing to do with Beasley for God's sake. That's ridiculous. If would be that the Pacers are maturing as a team with a much better bench than last year. They will be our biggest challenge IMO. RP, I hope Chalmers goes away next year. I can't stand him. He makes the dumbest mistakes.

Ha Ha - you can't stand RIO but have nuthin' but the two handed verbal massage for beas' ego? RIO has hit more big shots than supercool EVER will.

It's all good. Some players you don't like, some I don't like - some players are starters and have two championship rings, and some players get traded for two second round draft picks. Some players are asked to be leaders on the court, and some players are asked to just lead the way out of the door. By the way, Phoenix IS recovering nicely from telling a fool to just take these millions and freakin' leave.

Is this part of the non-guaranteed contract: Beas can ONLY win games, but if he makes bone-headed plays that cost the Heat a game vs. the Pacers in a playoff series - it will have nothing to do with Beasley, for god's son sake????? Are you assuming our coach won't have enough confidence in him to risk having his game on the floor in a crucial moment or are you just laying out the blanket statement that beas will never be a draw on this team?

....and Happy New Year to all y'all!

You nailed it. We can choose to like and dislike players. I could care less how many big shots Chalmers has made, his bonehead plays I'm so sick of. He gets yelled at constantly. I will be glad to not resign him next year and give Cole a starting role. Beasley was traded because we needed the extra cap space to sign the BIG 3! Beasley was making 4.75 million at the time. If you remember correctly we were getting a 1st round pick for Beasley but we turned it down because we didn't want a 4 million guarantee on a 1st rounder when we signed the BIG 3. So we decided getting 2 2nd rounders were better for us financially, plus the 1st rounder would of been buried on the bench anyway. As far as the Suns go, Jeff Hornacek is running away with rookie coach of the year honors. He didn't have Beasley on his team when he took over. That's completely different things were talking about.

"[Hornacek] didn't have Beasley on his team when he took over. That's completely different things were talking about."

---

What the eff.

The Suns hired Hornacek on 5/28/2013. The Suns waived Beasley on 9/3/2013.

Hornacek saw & said plenty about Beasley that summer, a summer that included Beasley's arrest for possession in August.

But you're right: "That's completely different things we're talking about."

We're talking facts.

" I couldn't (could) care less how many big shots supercool (Chalmers) has made, his bonehead plays I'm so sick of. He gets traded (yelled) at constantly. I will be glad to not resign him next year and give Trevor Ariza (Cole) a supporting (starting) role."

Chalmers is a huge part of the success the Miami Heat have had the last 5 1/2 years since he has been on the team. We have been to the playoffs every year he has been on the team and he always plays a big role. They call bim Big Shot Rio for a reason and y'all have short memories to talk otherwise. He probably won't be on the Heat next year but that is only because he will be a highly sought after free agent and will sign a contract that the Heat just won't be able to offer. He will deserve every penny he earns of that contact and providing he can stay healthy, he has a very long career ahead of him in this league where he will win many championships.

^^^ HUH? My bad about Hornycheck.

Tonight = VOMIT BALL.

Really. Whole team probably played with BAC > .08%. Not a good look for 30ish crew trying to #3peat even if they r defending champs. Gets harder & harder to switch it on when you add hangovers to wear & tear on aging bodies.

Gotta question ? Why doesn't Lebron go down to the block more often & post up ...when obviously a team like the Warriors have really no one to match up ? Heat didn't seem too into the game - WEIRD.

Good question RP. It seemed like earlier in the year he was spending more time posting up, where he is as effective as anybody. I'm sure some of it is matchups, but like you said - who on the warriors is going to defend him there. Surround him with shooters, of which we have plenty, and it sounds like a game plan to win. Maybe his back is not cooperating with banging in the paint. Oh well, we'll get it right. After we got beat by the C's with Green's last second shot, we went on a pretty good run. Maybe we need these games every couple of weeks to force us to refocus. Maybe taheati was right, and it was a case of excessive fluids.

I was just projecting as someone who remembers what it felt like to run around with a throbbing head & a stomach full of bile sloshing every which way. So I can't even imagine attempting what the Heat did: Contain Steph Curry like a bunch of Sylvesters chasing Speedy Gonzales. I mean, just thinking/typing this makes me wanna dry heave.

Finally got to see the game vs Warriors. Some thoughts:

- Bosh and Wade missed a lot of layups/shots at the rim.

- Cole, Chalmers, and Wade were getting their hands in the passing lanes quite effectively. Doubt RIO at your own risk.

- LBJ and Birdman won't have that game tape playing on a loop in their house. I'm guessing Birdman's injury is still messing with him, cause he didn't run the floor with any speed at all.

- and, uh, beas? Here's what I saw:

-- called for an illegal screen

-- got blocked by Green

-- got stripped by Green

-- caught a pass from LBJ on the perimeter and forced a dribble to the lane where he got caught with no options and awkwardly passed a 4' pass to an unsuspecting Birdman

-- was guarding someone in the post (Spaights, I think)and the ball got passed into the post and supercool had his head completely turned around. Even in middle school kids know to "see the ball"

-- lastly, whenever a Heat player does something good on the court and they flash to the bench players, why is beas the only one yelling gutter obscenities? Can't you be happy, jubilent, and excited without being gutter? That's annoying, but expected from Mr. Five High Schools.
