    I hope the mother isn't portrayed as a crazy person. Not saying Wade's ex-wife is, but she is definitely reported that way.

    @Sergio - Why is this man's commitment to his children being questioned? Did you know that he also takes care of his nephew who's even younger than his boys? That's a hell of a lot of responsibility to take on in the name of "image."

    A judge determined that he is a better parent than the boys' mother. That's the real story!

    I ask because I have heard that Wade's ex-wife is not the crazy, unstable woman that she has been played out in the media but was a devoted mother who had nervous breakdown when she found out her husband had been cheatng on her with that actress. So better to portrey a black woman as the loony one unfit to raise children then to admit the truth

    So can someone tell me exactly what is the story about Wade and his ex-wife? I understand he got custody of his kids because she was unfit. But is that the real story? I hear that his caring father thing is more image than fact and that his ex-wife is getting really bum rap

    That sound you just heard was Dwayne Wade's ex wife's head exploding.
