To nobody's surprise, there is yet another story about the Wade/LeBron/Bosh situation on an NBA website. This Tim Povtak article
on NBA Fanhouse is another example of some of your generic "this Heat team will be really good" fare. However, what's this?
Editor's Note: Because of a transcription error, an earlier version of this story contained an incorrect quote from Dwyane Wade. The full and accurate version of the quote is contained in this story. We deeply regret the error.
Wait, what? What could be so bad?

...Okay then. Wow. Way to be sensitive there, D-Wade. I think the national Terror Alert Level just went up from yellow to a-kinda-sorta-orangey-yellow. And I'm sure conspiracy theorists
have already decided D-Wade was somehow involved in the September 11th attacks.
So, Fanhouse claimed there was a "transcription error." Not really sure how you can have a transcription error that
egregious slip through the editors, but let's give them the benefit of the doubt. So what was
the actual quote, NBA Fanhouse?
"Plus, there's going to be times when we lose 2-3 games in a row, and it seems like the world has crashed down. You all are going to make it seem like the World Trade is coming down again, but it's not going to be nothing but a couple basketball games."
Oh, because that's so
much better without the parenthetical "(Center)."
