Miami-Wade County

Paul RaymondCorrespondent IJune 17, 2010

Confused, thought it was supposed to be Miami-Dade County right? Well not come July. Miami-Dade County commissioners voted unanimously to rename the county Miami-Wade County in honor of Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade. Don’t worry the county will only be temporarily renamed, from the dates of July 1st to 7th. You do know what that coincides with right?

The start of NBA free agency. So while they’re saying this is being done “in recognition of all that Dwyane Wade has done for the visibility, stature and national image” of the county, we all know the real reason. This is a cheap, very cheap ploy to convince Dwayne to stay in Miami.

I’ll give the county credit thou its unique but still pretty cheesy especially when you consider Wade has already stated he WANTS to stay in Miami.

Will he stay? I don’t know that’s still totally up in the air, like Wade has said before it will depend on management. If they upgrade the team he’d love to stay, if not he’s gotta go and try to win himself a championship.

What will be interesting thou is this. If Wade does leave on say July 2nd, does Miami stick to their word and keep the county named Miami-Wade in honor of his contributions?
