Dwyane Wade on shooting during Canadian national anthem: ‘I’m not a disrespectful person’
Dwyane Wade caused an international incident by continuing his pregame shooting routine during the Canadian national anthem.
Canadians didn’t take kindly to that, so the Heat star responded.
Wade, via SportsNet.ca:
I believe Wade didn’t mean to disrespect Canada. But he did disrespect Canada. He must own that to fully get past this controversy. Otherwise, don’t be surprised if Raptors fans respond in kind for the Star Spangled Banner prior to Game 5 in Toronto Wednesday.
That said, Wade shooting during O Canada reflects on him. If you boo the American national anthem, that doesn’t rebuke Wade. It reflects on you.
