Wade's latest commercial for T-Mobile will run during the ABC broadcast. In the commercial, which also features Charles Barkley and Steve Nash, Wade is locked in his hotel room, and a video taken with his phone showing Wade saying "get me out of here," and distributed over the T-Mobile network inadvertently sets off a firestorm of trade rumors. The commercial was shown at halftime of TNT's broadcast of Miami's game in Phoenix Thursday night:
Wade is averaging 23.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 4.3 assists for the Heat this season. Wade and the Heat have lost their last five road games against the Lakers, with their last victory coming in 2004...on Christmas Day. Saturday's 2 p.m. PST tipoff will be televised by ABC.
