In the NBA, all the media’s eyes are still on the Miami Heat.  They have been subject to extreme scrutiny, and the latest is a controversial comment by Dwayne Wade.  Wade was being interviewed about his projections for next year, and he said while the Heat would be good, they would still might lose every now and then.  He went on to say that if the Heat did lose a couple in a row then the media would freak out like the World Trade was coming down again.  Of course, the media has been lambasting him for the last 24 hours.  Not the smartest comment.

Well, yesterday, Wade released a public apology saying that what he said was taken out of context.  Wade was implying that the media will treat a string of Heat loses like it’s a national catastrophe, when, in all truth, it’s not important at all.  Of course, Wade’s hyperbolic example shouldn’t have been uttered, but since the cat’s out of the bag, Wade had to play damage control.


In some strange news from the hockey world, the New Jersey Devils have just written a very interesting contract.  They recently signed the highly coveted Ilya Kovalchuk.  Sure, we’ve seen this before, but the Devils locked up Kovalchuk for the next, count ’em, 17 YEARS!!!  Talk about job security in the sports world.  The deal is worth $102 million, and will pay him various amounts over different spans of the contract.  This signing has raised questions as to whether teams should be able to lock up players for this long.  It could start a trend that may be bad for the league.  Imagine if every year, nobody was available in the off-season.


Finally, in the NFL, Terrell Owens is still without a job.  This guy was frequently thought of as one of, if not THE best receiver in the league.  Only problem is… he has character issues that have sent him packing from 3 teams.  Last year, he landed in Buffalo, and the team hoped Owens would give them a down-field threat.  Well, Owens had a lackluster year with the Bills and now believes that the word on the street is he’s slowing down.  However, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, is confident that Owens will sign with a team very soon.  Then again, nobody can figure out who wants him.  The Chargers and Seahawks have a huge demand for receivers, but they have publicly said they don’t want him.
