Dwyane Wade is apologizing for using the words "World Trade" while answering a question about the upcoming Miami Heat season.

Wade used the phrase Sunday before the annual charity basketball game he co-hosts with Alonzo Mourning.

While giving a answer about how the team could react to a losing streak this coming season, Wade said, referring to reporters, "You all are going to make it seem like the World Trade has just went down again."

Wade was not immediately available for further comment. He was traveling to Los Angeles for a television appearance Monday night.
