The Toronto Raptors are in the NBA playoffs and Canadians are excited!
The Raptors are taking on the Miami Heat in the second round, but something rubbed Canadians the wrong way during Thursday’s Game 3 match up.
Heat player Dwyane Wade didn’t stop his warm ups through the singing of Canada’s national anthem. YIKES. Now Canadians are hating hard on Wade.
Watch the video
Have yourself a good read at Wade’s response to the incident.
“It’s something that I do before every game that I prepare for, and I’ve been doing it my whole career,” Wade said after the Heat’s practice session Sunday at AmericanAirlines Arena.
“So I understand whatever is said from that standpoint, but I’m not a disrespectful person.
So if anybody thinks I’m being disrespectful towards a country, then they have no idea of who Dwyane Wade is.”
You be the judge if you think he’s being disrespectful. Read more here.
