Mark Cuban hasn’t liked Dwyane Wade since 2006, when his Mavs lost in the NBA Finals to the Heat in six games. Wade went to the free throw line at a historical rate that series.
Dallas got revenge on Miami in 2011, which is probably why Cuban has let his animosity towards Wade go.
“Not anymore,” Cuban said when asked if he had personal disdain for Wade. “At the beginning, I did because I think he thought he was entitled to everything that happened in that series. But it’s been eight years. I mean, I take a little bit of joy in games where he doesn’t go to the free throw line. But I like D-Wade now. He’s a guy who does a lot of good things off the court and I have to respect that.”
