If it were up to Dwyane Wade, he and his team wouldn’t be in MSG tonight to play the Knicks.

After the debut of the Barclays Center was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy, my immediate thought was “did they cancel the game at MSG on Friday?” Apparently, I wasn’t the only person that was questioning the decision to keep the game on the schedule. The debut at MSG between the Knicks and the Heat will indeed go on as originally scheduled, and many disagree with that decision, including Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade.
Wade currently received some criticism because of his tweet that could be interpreted as him complaining about the commute to NYC to play the Knicks. However, Wade amended his comments this morning to instead say he didn’t understand how the teams could be playing basketball with so many still suffering from the wrath of Sandy via twitter:
2 be clear “Traffic tweet was meant 2 say”… We shouldn’t B hre 2 play a basketball game when theirs so many families obviously still R affected by #Sandy
It’s a quality point by Wade, and many have made a similar argument in regards to Mayor Bloomberg’s decision to continue on with the New York Marathon this Sunday. Either way, it’s not Wade’s decision, and regardless of circumstances, he and the rest of the Heat will have to be ready for a hopefully full house at MSG tonight.
