ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- Is Dwyane Wade a dirty player?
That's the topic de jour around the NBA as the Miami Heat guard and former Marquette University star was issued a one-game suspension for "flailing his leg and making contact with the groin" of Bobcats guard Ramon Sessions. Wade will sit out Friday's game against Detroit and return to action Saturday against Milwaukee.
It's the latest incident in a series of controversial happenings involving Wade and many have been quick to place the "dirty" label on Wade. After practice at the Cousins Center on Friday, the Milwaukee Bucks disagreed with that notion.
"We live in a day and age where everybody is snap-judging everything, all of the time," Bucks coach Scott Skiles said. "A guy can have five years where nothing happens and he does it one time and everybody brands him something. Things happen when guys compete and the league makes judgments."
In a statement, the Miami Heat claimed Friday that's what's happening with Wade.
