We’re less than half an hour away from the start of 2010 Free Agency. Besides the World Cup, NBA free agency is the summer’s biggest story. Many sportswriters and commentators have labelled this the “Summer of LeBron”. And while the #1 free agent up for grabs is undoubtedly LeBron James, the Miami Heat’s first priority is signing their franchise player, 2006 Finals MVP Dwyane Wade. The organization and the fans are doing everything in their power to convince Wade to stay. The Miami Heat are hosting a We Want Wade Week and Miami-Dade county has officially (and temporarily) changed its name to Wade County.
Like I’ve mentioned previously, the Miami Heat have launched a massive campaign, We Want Wade, in an effort to convince Wade to re-sign. There have been viewing parties, fan giveways, etc. and fans are being encouraged to submit videos telling Wade why he should stay in Miami. So without further ado, here’s my We Want Wade video.
*Please excuse my awkwardness in not looking straight at the camera. And yes, I know I sound like a twelve year-old.
Are any basketball fans as excited and anxious as I am to see where all these free agents land?!? Is it July 8th yet?!?
P.S. I’ll be updating this post with my We Want Wade video on Thursday!
