It may be time for the t-shirts. Or perhaps copyright. Maybe Pat Riley will beat everyone to it as he did with threepeat.

Dwyane Wade is no Michael Jordan. In fact, when Wade Friday met reporters for the first time since signing to play for the Bulls, the Chicago native who grew up in southwest suburban Oak Lawn reiterated he, like all the kids, wanted to be like Mike. And the Bulls.
