Yesterday was not a good day in Dorrell Wright's household. After his girlfriend and baby's mama dared brag about her good man on Twitter, an anonymous groupie wasn't having it -- and posted a screenshot of his bathing suit area from a rather, er, intimate webcam encounter.
And now Wright is publicly apologizing for Lil' D-Wrong, who's earned him the nickname "Mr. Five Inches" across the Internet.
"I'd like to apologize to my family, friends and the Heat organization for this embarrassment,'' Wright said in a statement. "The photos were taken roughly one year ago in what I thought was a private conversation. I lacked judgment and was naïve about the Internet. I realize this is not an excuse but it is something I truly regret. I realize this affects my entire family and I'm embarrassed by it.''
He failed to mention that insinuating he had relations with the Internet is hilarious, but we're guessing he doesn't quite see it that way.
But honestly, what's the deal with the Heat? After a wildly erratic -- and at times unwatchable -- season, the Heat are hitting their stride right when, on the personal, public side, things seem to be falling apart spectacularly.
Since Carlos Arroyo was arrested for turning a regular ol' traffic stop into a scrappy confrontation, they've gone 11-5.
Since Rafer Alston abandoned the team and town without so much as a word to management, Miami has gone 11-3.
Since Dorrell Wright's last brush with infamy -- a DUI after a night out with other players and one Luther Campbell -- the team has enjoyed a 6-2 run on the eve of the playoffs.
If you ask us, Wright should have started posting his own nudes back in January when the Heat went 8-9. But with any luck, Joel Anthony will be found face-first in a hooker and proceed to propel the Heat right out of the first round of the playoffs.
