The Miami Heat continue to do themselves no favors out there on the PR front. For the second straight summer, Dwyane Wade has descended up on a youth camp only to find a way to viciously reject children's shots.
This time, it was at his own basketball camp. It comes from our friends at Hot Hot Hoops:
Notice right away how he yells at the kid to distract her. Then, at the :45 spot, the fun begins. He does it twice… but Karma gets him at the 1:15 point when he tries to block the shot again with a ball, but misses… and he loses his game of knockout.
Yup… just more fun for D-Wade… who, of course, has blocked and berated children before (like last summer)
And he's not the only Heat player to embarrass a kid at a camp this summer. Have you seen LeBron James dunking on a child?
Just go to the :37 mark and then wait for LeBron to come flying in, smash on the kid, knock him to the ground, and then just prance away as everyone laughs.
I know… its all supposed to be in good fun. Because I know when I go to a camp, having an NBA megastar reject my shot or dunk on me in a game of knockout is just so awesome. I can't wait to tell my friends how a 270 guy made me crumble to the ground while people pointed and laughed at me.
Yeah… that's a lot of fun.
