The NBA Passionista:
Things always get testy in the playoffs, especially when it’s a close contested game such as the one in the Eastern Conference Semifinals between the Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heat. This happened during the 9:27 mark of the 4th quarter when Wade dished a flagrant foul on Collison. No matter the frustration, on either [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
ACT LIKE YOU'VE BEEN THERE?
The Heat star apparently took exception to how the Pacers celebrated so boisterously following Indiana's Game 2 win over Miami.
The NBA had ample reason to suspend Dwyane Wade for two games.
Yes, its the playoffs, and, yes, it would have hurt the Miami Heat, but what Wade did to Darren Collison in the Indiana Pacers win Heat warranted a suspension because it was a dangerous play that cant be justified.
Instead, the NBA chose not to upgrade Wades flagrant foul or suspend him, which is nothing if not inconsistent...
D-Wade followed up his All-Star game flagrant on Kobe with one on Collison. His arrogance is out of control.
After watching Tuesday night’s East semi-final Game 2 slugfest between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers, I’ve come to the conclusion that DWYANE WADE has a nasty chip on his shoulders…and not one necessarily designed to give him an edge.
No, I think D-Wade’s chip...
LONG DISTANCE CONNECTION
This air-mail delivery from Dwyane Wade to LeBron James comes with about 5 minutes to go in the first quarter of Sunday’s second round action between the Heat and the Pacers.
The fantastic pass, catch and slam brings the Heat to within three of the Pacers early on in the game. After the oop, the Pacers led 15-12 over the projected Eastern Conference kings.
The Heat would stave...
Last night, a frustrated Dwyane Wade clearly shoved Darren Collison to the ground in transition, earning himself a flagrant 1 foul. Many people immediately compared it to the Jason Smith foul on Blake Griffin, which was called a Flagrant 2, and earned Smith a 2 game suspension.
Even though the plays are similar, the league saw fit to not only not upgrade Wade's foul...
Dwyane Wade is making it more and more evident that he’s a dirty player, and his actions on Tuesday only confirmed that opinion. Early in the fourth quarter of Game 2 between the Pacers and Heat, Wade forcefully shoved Darren Collison who was free on a fast break. Wade really ran into Collison as if he were a safety chasing down a receiver and trying to make a tackle. It was unnecessary...
Nothing will scream how awesome you are like this Lebron James/Dwyane Wade motorcycle helmet.
If you want ride in style to the next Miami Heat playoff game, then I would recommend getting yourself one of these helmets for your bike. From what I read in Consumer Reports, this helmet is the best one out there at protecting you head until you actually crash, and then it disappears...
MIAMI -- The Miami Heat have found some new motivation against the Indiana Pacers. Or at least Dwyane Wade believes they have.
In his press conference after Tuesday's 78-75 Game 2 East semifinal loss to the Pacers, the Heat guard was asked about Game 3 Thursday at Indiana. But he still wanted to talk about Game 2.
"I heard they wanted to be like the Dallas Mavericks, in...
Just in case your driving down the highway in Miami, there might be the possibility that you could see the below Dwayne Wade/Lebron James motorcycle helmet.I will say though, the Lebron image is spot on and Dwayne doesn't exactly look like himself: (Courtesy of Cosby Sweaters)
Dwyane Wade has set the bar at three NBA titles.
It’s going to make me cry but this is the last installment of “Top 25 Toughest Players to Guard in the NBA. It has been a fun four day ride but, like all good things, it must come to an end. Today I unveil players 5-1. Here we go! (Tear, tear)
5. Chris Paul – Is there anything Paul can’t do? He is a magician with the ball, a fierce competitor, strong as hell, and super-talented...
It’s nice to have superstars like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Dwyane Wade and Derrick Rose on your team. But you can’t have a team of 12 superstars. It’s not possible, at all. You need tough guys on your team, guy that will help motivate their teammates to take their game to another level or guys that will play limited minutes and give unlimited effort. Here are 12 players...
Following a hard foul by the only true mismatch in this second round series, Indiana Pacers C Roy Hibbert took down PF Chris Bosh in what looked like a harmless hard foul. The damage was done, as Miami Heat PF Chris Bosh may have to sit out the series with an abdominal strain.
It seems as if for some strange reason the Big Three (or the Miami Thrice) play their best...
