The tweet reached Miami Heat icon Dwyane Wade and told the fan to hold up.
Via Twitter, peep Wade’s one-word reaction laced with a few emojis to any thoughts of a potential Beal-to-LA deal. Clearly, he isn’t a fan of the idea.

Tuesday’s duel marks Beal’s first time against his former teammate John Wall. Perhaps that’s the reason why the loss had an extra sting to it and has Lakers fans smelling blood in the water. Beal had a game-high 33 points, along with five rebounds, and three assists in a losing effort. Only him and Russell Westbrook (19 points) reached double-figures in points.
Clearly, this wasn’t enough to take down the Rockets who had five players in double-figures. Wall had 24, Eric Gordon and Victor Oladipo added 20 points each, and DeMarcus Cousins added 19. It became crystal clear that it was the Rockets who won the blockbuster trade.
As for the inclusion of Pelinka into the fiasco, it might not be the best idea to make a move for Beal. After all, why mess with success? If the Lakers were to acquire him, they would have to give up most of their players. And given how the Lakers have been playing, taking out several pieces of the puzzle isn’t necessarily ideal.
Be that as it may, Lakers fans are just having fun. If there’s any piece that they think would fit, calling Pelinka’s attention won’t hurt.
