When did Dwayne Wade become such a whiny baby? - phillies816 - 05-18-2012 11:12 AM

Not a huge NBA fan but used to be and one of my faves was always Dwayne Wade. Watching ESPN the last year or so made me realize that somewhere along the way Dwayne Wade turned into a whiner Stupid statements, subpar play, constantly complaining about calls...Overall just complaining and moaning. Can't stand him now. When and why did this happen?

I say this in a joking manner, but believe part of it is true.....

When someone took their talents to South Beach.

Really? All Lebron influence?

Before LeBron, Wade always seemed very humble. Since the signing, he's seemed "younger" in attitude and maturity. At least, that's how it seems to me.

Now that I think about the timing of it you are probably right. I can't stand Lebron either.

Well, to make this clear, I'm not saying LeBron directly caused it. But his presence has seemed to change Dwyane.

I know what you're saying. I know people who act differently around some people. It's a shame that one of the guys I looked at as a "good" guy has turned out to be like this.

+1. Their attitude last year made me sick. It is better this year, but how the whole situation went down made me sick. I like both as players, but have a difficulty listening to them speak. I think last year they had the impression that they could not be stopped and that got to their head. It got better this year, but they may not even make it out of the second round. Hopefully it will be a humbling experience for them as I would like to see Lebron win at least 1 ring. Crazy though that a team like the Pacers who does not get the spotlight is up 2-1 in the playoffs against the team that is always in the news. I personaly love it though! Larry Bird has done a great job at assembling that team....goes to show that you dont always need 3 superstars to have a great team.

I have to agree with everyone..I used to like D-Wade especially with him being a Chicago guy, but it seemed as soon as LeBron and Bosh got there, he changed into a completely different personality...
