This NBA subreddit should apologize to Dwyane Wade

Watching the season restart last night with all of the mentions of Black Lives Matter, messages on jerseys, and kneeling for the anthem was amazing. But it reminded me how far the league has come since 2016 when Dwyane Wade decided to stop standing for the national anthem in protest for his right to practice. The next day he found himself the subject of vehement critics towards his attitude. With the way the NBA is handling these protests now I really think the mods of this sub should make a gesture of apology to him and use it as a moment to show how far we have come. He was a huge NBA figure and he was way ahead of his time to protest during a time where the most famous player in the league was apolitical at best. What do you guys think? How could the r/NBA mods apologize/honor him? This moment just feels like the right time to me.ent to show how far we have come.
