Dwyane Wade's YouTube Message to Heat Fans: "My Heart Led Me Back Here"
Dwyane Wade let Miami's oft-tortured sports fans breathe a heavy sigh of relief this morning by re-signing with the Miami Heat and bringing Chris Bosh with him. Wade certainly stoked our abandonment complex at times, but he just put up a YouTube video thanking "the real fans that really gave me an opportunity to go through this process..and make the best decision for me and for the Wade family."
"At the end of the day, my heart led me back here, to Miami, the place that drafted me seven years ago and gave me a shot and opportunity. And I built something here, I built a county here, and I want to continue that legacy. I want to continue to do it in my house, but I'm not coming alone, as you all know."
Oh, we know. Wade says his dedication to bring another quality player was not only for his future but also for the fans. He asks that fans welcome Chris Bosh just like we welcomed him.
Unfortunately, as far as we can tell, there were no cryptic hints that LeBron is coming as well.
