All Star, Boston Celtics, and Chicago: Dwyane Wade Says he Has "24 Million Reasons" to Stay in Chicago @balleralert DwyaneWade Says he Has “24 Million Reasons” to Stay in Chicago -blogged by @msjennyb - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Tuesday, reports surfaced concerning Dwyane Wade’s player option for the 2017-18 regular season. Months ago, the Chicago Bulls veteran revealed that he wanted to leave all his options open this summer as he contemplated the $23.8 million player option. As the Jimmy Butler trade talk surfaced, many believed such a move could sway Wade to ditch his hometown and take his talents elsewhere. However, despite recent rumors, Wade has informed the Bulls he will pick up his option for the forthcoming season. When asked why, Wade reportedly told TNT’s David Aldridge that he had “24 million reasons,” why he chose to stay in Chicago. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just last year, Wade signed a $47.5 million two-year deal, which included a player option for the second year, with his hometown team after 13 seasons with the Miami Heat. In 60 games with the Bulls, the three-time NBA champion and 12-time NBA All-star averaged 18.3 points, shooting 43 percent from the floor. Although the 35-year-old baller missed the final 14 games of the season, due to injury, he came back in the playoffs, averaging 15 points and five rebounds against the Boston Celtics. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, as Wade prepares for his 15th season in the NBA and second with his hometown team, he is looking to continue the grind. Although his numbers have decreased with age, he still believes he is more than worthy of a $20 million deal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “18.3 points a game in 29 min on 43% shooting at 35 years old. If I’m 25 with the same numbers I’m getting 150 million Fading petty,” Wade tweeted after news surfaced of his decision to pick up the option. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your thoughts?

Bill Belichick, George W.

President Obama has hosted everyone from the Cubs to the Miami Heat. With Donald Trump being good friends with TomBrady, Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick, it’s no question that the SuperBowl51 champs will be heading to the White House soon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One player in particular will not be attending. Following Sunday’s Super Bowl win over the Atlanta Falcons, Patriots MartellusBennett says that he will be skipping out on meeting the president at the White House. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I’m not going to go,” the tight end said in a postgame interview. When asked why, Bennett responded, “It is what it is. People know how I feel about it. Just follow me on Twitter.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bennett has been very vocal on Twitter about his thoughts on Trump’s policies. On Monday, during Super Bowl media day, Bennett told reporters that if the Pats won he wouldn’t be meeting Trump, “because I don’t support the guy in the house.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bennett wouldn’t be the first athlete to skip out on a visit to the White House. In 2015, TomBrady did not meet with PresidentObama, nor did Tim Thomas after the Bruins won the Stanley Cup in 2011. Steelers’ JamesHarrison declined to attend in 2006 and 2009, citing that it wasn’t that big of a deal. After the Red Sox won the World Series, MannyRamirez decided not to meet George W Bush. Let’s not forget MichaelJordan choosing to celebrate with his family over George H. W. Bush in 1991.
