Haslem Comes to Wade’s Rescue
Frustrated with seeing Dwyane Wade take a pounding, Udonis Haslem set up along the baseline Wednesday and raised his arms to retaliate yet again for his battered teammate.
This time, Tyler Hansbrough was nowhere to be found.
Instead, Haslem took aim at the swarm of media members, skeptical critics and overly concerned fans who have come out in droves to question what is wrong with Wade after seeing his stretch of erratic play continue during a loss to Oklahoma City in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
“You all need to get off Dwyane, man,” Haslem said as the Heat prepared for Game 2 on Thursday. “I don’t understand what people are talking about with Dwyane. We’re in the NBA Finals. I mean, how bad can he be playing? We didn’t get here without him. Dwyane’s fine. He’s still our guy. Y’all want to put the heat on somebody, put it on the Miami Heat. All of of us. Lay off Dwyane.”
