In my mind it was Bob McNair. The fact that Bob sent his jet after Reed, which rarely happens. A lot of 1st RD draft picks don't get the McNair jet treatment. Wade knowing nothing about Reed or even part of the discussion about Reed says to me this was a McNair wild hair and it fits McNair's pattern of behavior of trying to buy a Championship.
I think it may have been a quasi joke, the part about getting the 1st RD pick "EVERY YEAR"
may have been the joke. The 1st RD pick in 2011 & 2012, I'm not so sure.
