NBA Standout Dwayne Wade Speaks On Leaving The Heat For The Windy City And Getting A Warm Reception And More (Video)

It’s only a six-minute clip but there is a lot in there (including precious seconds of screen time with gorgeous wifey Gabrielle Union). D Wade joining D Rose in Chicago certainly signals the Bulls desire to win rings, but other things ring true in this clip. Concerned about making the most of his remaining time (even referencing his long-gone youth, when he was ‘able to sit Indian style’ and dream about playing for the Bulls), getting the best contract and competitive situation for himself…all that and more…factored into Dwayne Wade’s decision to make that move from Miami. Watch him talk all about it above.

Dwayne Wade speaks with Cari Champion about his decision to sign with his hometown Chicago Bulls, his welcoming discussion with Jimmy Butler, and what message LeBron James and Chris Paul told him before signing.

(SportsCenter’s Cari Champion is definitely looking lovely in this interview, too. Bonus!)

Michael Jordan’s Former ‘Dream Home’ Still Spruced Up For Sale (Video)

Michael Jordan is considered to be the greatest NBA player of all-time, but he also has the dubious reputation for not having the best sense of style. There are a dozens of news pieces, websites, facebook, instagram, & twitter pages with names like… “What The F*k is Michael Jordan” poking fun at his fashion choices.  Even GQ magazine took shots at his style & taste after he was kicked out of a country club for his allegedly horrible choice of golf gear.  Some of the clothes he’s worn out in public have been so unintentionally ridiculous that I wouldn’t be surprised if his former Chicago dream home wasn’t any different. Michael Jordan has been desperately trying to sell this luxury home for years and had lowered his price in 2012 from $29 Million only to subsequently fail getting it sold at auction for a minimum of $16 million last December. If the interior of the home was anything like his personal fashion sense PRIOR to putting this home on the market & hiring some professional interior decorators, that could have been a huge reason why he hadn’t found a new owner sooner coupled with that still hefty asking price.

NBA: 90 Seconds With Derek Rose (Video)

Chicago Bulls NBA star Derek Rose is set to return to the league following his severe knee injury & from the looks of CNN’s ’90 Seconds With…’ segment he’s supremely confident that’s he’s ready to go. The Chicago native when asked who’s the best player in the NBA right now he without hesitation let it be known that he was indeed the man despite some of the negative press he received for sitting out last season. Yes, confident is how athletes are supposed to be, but in a follow up question he did give a nod to the skill & dominance of “King James”.   Makes for an interesting matchup when their respective teams are speculated to meet again in October. I also like how Derek Rose mentioned Malcolm X as one of his life’s influences. I guess he’s applying the term ‘By Any Means Necessary’ in bringing an NBA championship back to Chicago.

Ballin’ at the ball game… courtside… BAWSE! Rick Ross and his son take in game 2 of the Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls game 2 of the NBA Playoffs. Ultimate gift: Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat gives Ross’ son the shoes he wore in the game! That makes it a rather historic & special event for a young kid I’m sure he’ll never forget. As the series heads back to Miami tomorrow with the team up 3-1 on the Chicago Bulls it looks like my favorite team the Miami Heat are closer to another historic run for an NBA Championship. Let’s go HEAT! #TEAMHEAT

Chris Bosh Is ‘Hollywood As Hell’ In Beverly Hills Bosh (Video)

Last night the Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls to move onto the NBA Finals. Chicago Bulls’s Joakim Noah gave the Miami Heat plenty of props but said they were ‘Hollywood’. I found that was funny, but maybe he was talking about the Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh’s acting career….
