Dwyane Wade’s dirty play rolls on, unchecked

John - Red's Army (@RedsArmy_John) December 27, 2012 Around the NBA 15 Comments

Dwyane Wade has been a damn good player for nine years in the NBA.  He’s got a Finals MVP… he’s been a scoring champ… an All Star almost every year… it’s a very impressive resume.  And up until a few years ago, I kind of liked him.  He played hard, he made fun commercials… he put forth a very palatable personna.

Then he turned into Ndamukong Suh… a talented player who plays dirty for no reason whatsoever.

Wade has developed a pattern of dirty play that has gone unchecked by the NBA.  From trying to break Rajon Rondo’s arm, to nearly killing Darren Collison, Wade has figured out sneaky way to make obviously dirty play that can be summed up best by this tweet:]

Yes, Wade leaves himself a little bit of wiggle room with every dirty play.  He was at it again last night.

“Hey. I was off-balance… my leg just happened to go up.  Not my fault your nuts were in the way.”

“Oh… Collison just got into my way as I was trying to chase down Hibbert…”

“Oh… I was just trying to break my fall when Rondo tripped me…”

Enough is enough, already.  It’s time to send a message to Wade.  Scratch that… it’s PAST time to send a message to Wade.  But the obvious kick to the nuts HAS to draw a suspension.  Even the league’s golden boys need to feel the sting of discipline from time to time… if for nothing else to maintain the facade that the league isn’t happily looking the other way again when it comes to Wade.

At some point, the coincidences stop being coincidences, and the repeated incidents become a pattern.  Wade isn’t the unlucky soul around whom other players run the unfortunate risk of hitting the ground.  He puts them there.  Intentionally.  Unnecessarily.  It’s time to put a stop to it.

    According to Brian Windhorst on Twitter the NBA is “looking” into it.

    RT@rick_bonnell: NBA is definitely reviewing whether Miami’s Dwyane Wade should be disciplined for kicking Bobcat Ramon Sessions in the groin.

    We’ll see what the verdict is. Didn’t Cousins get suspended for pretty much doing the same thing??

  • Nathan

    No… just stop the game, review it for 10-15 minutes, call a double tech on him and sessions and move on.

    (/sarcasm)

    I liked him too, but I think that my growing dislike is more of a product of the rivalry between the Heat and C’s…

    He probably just kicked him because the Heat were only up by four on the Bobcats.

  • eddysamson

    And the ref calls the foul against Sessions. Fucking infuriating. How can we let this happen? Cant we as fans boycott this bullshit officiating that has taken to the great NBA like a cancer.

  • KGino

    does Lebron still have his ridiculous no foul streak? The NBA treats the Heat like children caught up in a parents divorce.

  • zippittyay

    That was much worse than KGs little sack tap against Channing Frye.

  • Cam

    There are many other dirty instances just with the Celtics so im guessing there are tons more.

    On another subject Wade has kind of fallen off. I will be kind of shocked if people view his career better than Pierce’s when all is said and done. Let’s see if Wade can be elite like Pierce in 5 years.

  • PICTURE PLANET

    Fuck Wade he is a serious child and needs to be dealt with. I hope Perk kicks him in the head again.

  • RedsLoveChild

    Wade will continue this crap….until or unless Stern finally decides to drop the hammer on him.

  • Danno

    Avery Johnson Fired.

  • adam

    as much as I hate Kobe, Wade broke his nose at the all-star game… a freaking exhibition game…… I would someone would kick him in the knee hard.

  • Jayfox

    They probably wont suspend him. Remember when Rondo got suspended for 2 games I think for throw the ball at the ref. Well Noah did the same thing and they didn’t suspend him so even DeMarcus got suspended I don’t they will suspended D Wade.

  • AlexLuo

    Wade is one of the dirtiest players in the game. Also JR Smith’s push on Dragic while he’s in mid air and took him out of the game last night. That was as bad as D12’s shove on the Manimal, they all should be suspended.

  • greenman

    It’s the NBA… Come on people. He won’t get any discipline. For the same reason that Refs don’t call fouls on Lebron. It’s a joke. Special Star treatment is slowly destroying this game.

  • nyceltic

    A move like that should be a flagrant or an ejection.
