Watching ESPN the last year or so made me realize that somewhere along the way Dwayne Wade turned into a b*tch. Stupid statements, subpar play, constantly complaining about calls...Overall just pissing and moaning. Can't stand him now. When and why did this happen?

Sure worked out great hitting Bryce Harper, eh? Forgot to look over at third base on that pickoff attempt to first?
These are the basketball boards, thanks.

I collect mainly MJ cards and truly believe he is the best basketball player of all time, but what a horrible off court personality. I don't know if anyone heard of some of his excerpts or watched his hall of fame induction ceremony, but the guy had to take that moment to humiliate anyone who wronged him or further humiliate anyone who he got the better of. Maybe it was because he knew he was better than everyone. Maybe he knew everyone wanted to be him.
As for Wade, I always enjoyed watching him play after post-Shaq and pre-LeBron. He was fearless and as everyone else mentioned, humble. But, I agree that he has had this sense of entitlement since LeBron came into the picture. Maybe because there isn't enough basketballs for him and LeBron at once and he realizes he isn't the best player on HIS team.
Anyone remember when he had to be wheeled off in a wheelchair with a shoulder injury?
