Wade has asked the NBA to further improve the ways it protects players from the most unruly of fans, making that request during the league's brief investigation of his incident with the crowd in Charlotte on Wednesday night. "The NBA is an unbelievable league, and I'm one of the first ones to be doing NBA Cares and all these things in the community, but they need to protect us a little more," Wade told The Associated Press. "They need to do a better job of protecting players in the arena. It's open game on us. We're big boys, we can take it, but everyone has their breaking point." Boston Herald

Wade helped the Heat last summer by taking a $11 million paycut to $31 million over this season and next, hoping it would help the Heat add talent around him if James left. But this season so far has been a mess, and Wade said: “I’m not really focused on waiting until 2016. I don’t know what that means. That’s their organization. They do what they want from that standpoint. I’m not involved in that. I’m a player. Whatever decision they make from a 2016 standpoint is on them. The only thing I can control is the decisions I make and what I do. Miami Herald

“Whoever is here, whatever we decide to do, you just want to be competitive. That’s all I ask for myself and for our guys. “Nobody knows what’s going to happen in 2016; 2016, to me, is so far away and I hope people aren’t waiting on it thinking we’re going to land this quote, unquote Big Fish because it might not happen for you. No one knows if Riley is going to wait until 2016. It’s all speculation.” Miami Herald

Even though the conversation wasn’t completely clear, several bloggers and websites quoted James saying, “Like I said, if we (the Cavs) aren’t better this year, we’re gonna reunite again and do some bigger and better things, alright? You already know.” After the Heat’s loss to the Indiana Pacers Wednesday, Wade cleared up the misunderstanding. He recalled their conversation being about life after basketball. “It had nothing to do with [reuniting],” Wade said. “It was about bigger and better things later.” South Florida Sun-Sentinel
