Stern was pointing at the players during one of his speeches and Wade rebutled with, "Youre not pointing your finger at me. Im not your child. This showdown had players ready to leave. Stern asked to speak privately with union executive director Billy Hunter, who then calmed the players down and got them to stay. Wade feels the lockout could cost the NBA a whole season.(ProBasketball Talk)
