MIAMI ó Dwyane Wade says the Miami Heat ěplayed off hatredî last season. Thatís why Wade believes the Heat failed to win the NBA title.
In an interview with Mike Krzyzewski on the Duke coachís show on SiriusXM Radio, Wade says ěwe wanted to win to spite peopleî last season, the first where he had LeBron James and Chris Bosh as teammates.
Wade continued, ěI believe thatís the reason we didnít win a championship.î
Krzyzewski replied by saying, ěThatís why I love this guy.î
Wade and Krzyzewski grew close during the U.S. national teamís run to the 2008 Olympic gold medal in Beijing. During the interview that aired Tuesday night, Krzyzewski referred to Wade as the U.S. teamís best player at the Beijing Games.
