Fan Creates GoFundMe to Pay Dwyane Wade’s Salary To Stay With The Miami Heat
Miami Heat fans do not want to see their legend Dwyane Wade leave the team, especially after reports stated that the Heat only offered him $10 million while other teams are throwing $20 million his way.
The Miami Heat are trying to insult Dwyane Wade. Their first offer to him was $10 million a year. Pretty insulting.

Heat fans are not having it. They’ve started a GoFundMe page to get another $10 million in Wade’s pockets so he will stay with the team.
The GoFundMe reads as follows:
“PayWade.com is led by a group of loyal Miami Heat fans who are embarrassed by the low-ball offers and continuous discounts the team continues to ask of Dwyane Wade.
Since 2003, Wade has been the face of the franchise, the reason why Miami is now considered a basketball town. Let the organization know that we the fans are not happy about all this stuff we’re hearing about $10 million offers and meetings being scheduled with other teams such as the Bucks and Knicks.
The organization is very good at preaching about family and it’s time they start practicing what they preach by not taking Wade for granted and taking care of one of their own.
Let’s do whatever it takes to keep him in Miami-Wade County.
If the team won’t pay him, we the fans will!
* Well, not really cause we’re sure it’s against NBA rules, but we’ll pass along any donations of the Pay Wade movement to Wade’s World Foundation.
Help spread the word!”
