08:14 AM ET 08.19 | Dwyane Wade is bracing himself. The newly re-signed Miami Heat guard fully expects to be on the receiving end of it often between now and Sunday, while hosting a number of charity-themed events to help underprivileged kids. "I expect to hear that for a while," Wade told The Associated Press on Wednesday from Chicago, where his Wade's World Foundation will hold events involving more than 1,000 children this weekend. "But kids are fans of the game of basketball and fans of certain players as well. They think it's cool in a way. It's moreso the adults who don't understand why you didn't choose their cities."

Kids are fans of the game. But greedy players are selfish and only care about money and winning a championship for themselves.

I think that Dwayne is really the only one out of this whole big mess that it's hard to take issue with. All he did was stay with the team he's been at his entire career. I definitely have some animosity towards him because he, undoubtedly, was the chef behind the stew that was cooked up in Miami, but at the end of the day, he was the one that was loyal to his organization.
