Wade Donates Game Salary To Disaster Relief
Dwyane Wade donated his game salary from Friday's game against the Knicks to help in the disaster relief of Sandy.
“The money I make tonight can be left for a good cause,” Wade told USA Today. “I know a lot of people here. Knowing the things they have been through, it’s just mind-boggling. Miami is a place that is affected by hurricanes all the time, so I know how the community can be impacted by it. It’s tough.”
Wade's salary for one game is $209,536.86.
Wade was critical of the NBA's decision to play Friday's game as scheduled amid the destruction of the storm.
