06:14 PM ET 03.27 | As the Miami Heat visit the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night, there's a sub-story that's far from ending. Dwyane Wade returns to his hometown where his run of success as a college and professional basketball player began. Unlike the many other Chicago-born greats, however, Wade hasn't gotten his dues. The Heat shooting guard didn't grow up in the city. Playing at Richards High, which is 25 minutes from the city, Wade isn't mentioned among the many Chicago basketball stars like Isiah Thomas, Benji Wilson, Doc Rivers and Terry Cummings. "It's always been a knock on guys who played in the suburbs," Wade told the Sun Sentinel. "You didn't get as much attention because they think it's not as tough or whatever the case may be. I think I represent the city. Guys are proud of that, but it's something different between guys that go to school in the city and the suburbs."

Didn't do yourself any favors when you were crying as they wheeled you off the court for you dislocated shoulder.
