People took immediate notice of the Heat star's actions.

Wade issued a statement about the incident, stating that disrespect was not his intention.

"It's something that I do before every game that I prepare for, and I've been doing it my whole career," Wade told ESPN. "So I understand whatever is said from that standpoint, but I'm not a disrespectful person.
