It's a rare opportunity to get one-on-one time with a revered basketball player, let alone when said athlete is three-time NBA champ Dwayne Wade. But earlier this month in Miami, that's exactly where a group of journalists found themselves.

The media has consistently been all over this story since it surfaced, and we at TheLegalBlitz.com thought it best to call in the pros for a proper analysis of some of the sports law issues at hand.
