Toronto fans boo Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade in wake of anthem blunder

May 11, 2016 - 5:25 PM

TORONTO - The Miami Heat were at their best anthem behaviour before Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinal. That didn't stop Toronto fans from booing Dwyane Wade, however.

All the Miami starters were booed during introductions Wednesday but the Raptors faithful saved the loudest boos for the Heat star.

The boos continued during the game whenever Wade touched the ball.

Wade drew fire after continuing his pre-game shooting routine as "O Canada" played prior to Game 3 in Miami on Saturday. He later apologized to Canada, explaining he meant no disrespect but was just having difficulties completing his pre-game shooting routine.

The Heat players were lined up on cue Wednesday for "The Star-Spangled Banner," the first of the anthems at the Air Canada Centre.
