Dwyane Wade Might Not Make Olympics

Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade has played throughout the playoffs with knee pain, something that after an examination (probably an MRI scan) will know exactly what is causing the pain and if it will prevent him from going to the London Olympics. After celebrating his second NBA win, he told The Associated Press last week that he is having his knee examined and that surgery could be a possibility – which would stop him from making the American Olympic team.  He told the press “I’ve got to make a decision on what my knee needs and what’s best, because my career and finishing my career strong is what’s important to me,” carrying on to state “and I know, yeah, the Olympics are coming up. It’s something I really want to do. But at the same time, if I have to make a big decision, if something has to happen surgery-wise, that will have to be a step I have to take. My loyalty and my commitment to Miami Heat basketball is the No. 1 thing.”

This isn’t the first time that Wade has had problems with his knees, he had surgery in 2007 on his left knee – though it has not prevented him from being one of the best players in the game, at the Beijing Olympics he averaged 16 points a game even though he came off the bench on all the games.
