There was no good way to end Miami Heat’s ties with Dwyane Wade

The Miami Heat got the breakup with Dwyane Wade wrong because there was no good way to get it right. Maybe letting him go was a good business decision, and maybe it wasn’t. Maybe it was a good basketball decision, and maybe it wasn’t. But it was, no maybe about it, a terrible emotional decision. And that’s where interests collide and people get hurt in this kind of collision, at the intersection of sports as a business and sports as a relationship.
