08:08 AM ET 11.18 | On a day he would have been en route to Cleveland, Dwyane Wade was on the set of a Gatorade commercial shoot. In an interview with the Sun Sentinel, Wade said he plans to play competitive basketball this season, even if it means playing overseas amid the lockout. But he also said he would not allow the lockout get in the way of his marketing relationship with Michael Jordan, even with the Charlotte Bobcats owner taking a hard-line stance against the players. ... Foremost, Wade expressed disappointment over the lockout impasse. "I can't imagine going a year without basketball and I don't think that will happen," he said. "Some way, some how, I'm going to be part of a team.

"Some way, some how, I'm going to be part of a team. After all. I didn't get the chance to play on a team last year either"

I thought I would add what he left out.

It is rather strange that many players are willing to accept less money, less perks, and less of everything to play in Turkey but they won't accept less to play in America.

I don't think they quite realize just how much worse it will be in Europe.

After a month there they will be on their hands and knees pleading to take that deal... any deal... just let us come home...PLEASE!!!!

Does anyone actually think that the entire season will be sacrificed?

If they don't get a deal done before the end of december then maybe....
