Dwyane Wade: ‘We’re out here trying’ after fans boo

Chicago Bulls shooting guard Dwyane Wade has urged the team’s fans to be patient since the beginning of the season — as it turns out, most fans aren’t very patient.

Wade and company found that out the hard way after being booed following a 95-69 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Dec. 16 at the end of a home-and-home stretch.

The Bulls (14-13) had only won two of their last eight games prior to their victory against the Detroit Pistons and the fans were getting impatient after a promising start to the season.

“I’m an honest guy. I was very disappointed our fans booed us,” Wade told reporters on Wednesday, according to CSN Chicago’s Vincent Goodwill. “We’re trying to figure it out. We win home games against Cleveland, San Antonio. And then we get our butts kicked against Milwaukee. I don’t think we deserved to get booed.”

The veteran slasher was quick to point out the bigger picture of things and reminded fans that building chemistry and a winning culture takes its time.

“We’re out here trying. I’d like to see more patience and support from everybody. Like I said at the beginning of the year, we’re not winning a championship today. We’re not winning a championship tomorrow. We got stages and levels to get to where we want to get to. And everyone gotta understand that.”

The Bulls will attempt to go on a two-game win streak on the final night of their three-game home stand on Wednesday against the surging Washington Wizards.
