D Wade facing $25 million lawsuit?

While Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade is covering himself with Olympic glory in China, his partners in a restaurant venture here are suing him. By the time he returns stateside, the high-flying dunk artist could be told they want him to pony up $25 million, a source close to the case told Page Two. Wade, 26, is accused of not fulfilling his marketing obligations in what was supposed to become a national chain of sports bars named D. Wade's Place. "That's ridiculous," said his Miami lawyer, Steven Peretz. "Their company hasn't been a model of success." Florida was to be a showcase for future investors, the source tells me, with as many as 13 pilot restaurants in West Palm Beach, Daytona Beach, Tampa and other cities. But the first two grills, in Boca and Fort Lauderdale, were shut down after just weeks in business. The others have yet to open. -- Palm Beach Post

If this happened to Kobe, you'd all be whining about BSPN bias and how the country is filled with haters.

Seriously childish.

Who's acting like a little kid? I'm not using the expletives ^

How is this not funny? Wade getting sued $25 million for 2 restaurants that failed to do anything. So much for a restaurant chain...

Also, having a personal dislike of Wade makes this situation more funny to me.

Considering BSPN isn't involved in this story, that's a strange statement you make. How is laughing at Wade representing a failed restaurant chain connected to a country filled with haters or BSPN bias?

I don't like D-Wade. Simple as that. That's why I find this story funny. Also, anyone getting sued 25 million for two restaurants failing is preposterous. The situation that Wade's been thrust into is outrageous which makes it funny to me.

I can see it now: "Blah whine blah whine, all they do is report negative stories about Kobe, they're all a bunch of haters, blah whine whine blah blah..."

I'm just saying, fans on the boards complain about people hating on Kobe every chance they get, it's amazing that ya'll would do the exact same thing that you whine about other people doing.

If something like what happened to Wade happened to Kobe, I'd still laugh at it. $25 million lawsuit for a craptacular restaurant chain is outrageous to happen to any athlete. Though I will admit that this particular thing happening to Wade makes it funnier imo
