Wade makes emotional move to Chicago from Miami

Pat Riley Clearing The Decks For Chris Paul Blake Griffin Summer

They will make a few moves because Pat Riley always does and it usually pays off in the end, but he failed to keep an all-time great happy, and they paid the price yesterday, so the future success of the Miami Heat is in question at this time.

In this June 27, 2003, filephot, Dwyane Wade, left, former Marquette point guard and the fifth overall selection in the 2003 National Basketball Association draft, gets a little help holding up his jersey from his son Zaire, as Miami Heat coach Pat Riley, right, holds him during a news conference introducing Wade in Miami.

The Chicago Bulls officially announced and introduced their free agent signing of veteran point guard Rajon Rondo on Thursday. I look back with pride and amazement at all we have accomplished together.

His longtime agent, Henry Thomas, did not sound as conciliatory in an interview with Miami television station WFOR.

Plain and simple, it came down to money. The Warriors were the most loaded team in the league anyway, coming off two Finals and 73 regular season wins, with the player who won the MVP these last two years, Stephen Curry. "Egos go out the window and we all have one common goal".

Thomas said the situation reached a point of no return.

Riley had to denounce D-Wade's bird rights to sign Hassan Whiteside to a max offer, which was the Heat's obvious number one priority this offseason. That's when Wade caught the first huge wave of people tagging him in tweets intended for Dwyane Wade - who joined Twitter in 2009 and goes by the nickname D-Wade (which is even his shortened Twitter screen name) but has his full name, @DwyaneWade, as his Twitter handle. He has family here. Wade will be dearly missed in Miami and many feel that the Heat will deeply regret their decision of not respecting the player who brought them so much.

Just hours after shocking the National Basketball Association world with news that he would be leaving Miami and taking his talents to Chicago, superstar Dwayne Wade cohosted Live with Kelly on ABC. You get a week to decide, you know, what you're going to do. "I lost probably five to 10 pounds just not being able to eat". In today's sports section, the Chicago Tribune chose to troll Dwyane Wade by headlining him as the Bulls "Plan A (ARP)".
