Dwyane Wade may be the sneakiest dirty player in the NBA. Wade has a clean-cut image that obscures how unsportsmanlike he behaves on the court. Wade doesn’t just do what he can to win; he will actually injure an opponent if he has to. We’ve seen that time and time again. His actions on Wednesday were just the latest in an alarming pattern of dirty plays he’s committed. During the Heat-Bobcats game on Wednesday, Wade kicked Charlotte guard Ramon Sessions in the groin for absolutely no reason: Don’t even try to tell me that was accidental. Wade did it intentionally probably figuring he could get away with it. What’s scary is that Wade pulls this type of move constantly. Remember Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals in 2011 when Wade pulled down Rajon Rondo, resulting in a dislocated elbow? Or what about last season’s Eastern Conference Semifinals when Wade trucked Darren Collison from behind on a fast break? Or how about when Wade laid into Rip Hamilton in April, pushing the Bulls guard with full force: Still not convinced? Wade gave Kobe a broken nose and mild concussion during the All-Star Game with this dirty foul: Dwyane Wade is definitely the dirtiest player in the NBA that nobody talks about. I don’t care how much money he pays his publicists to get him phony awards like “Father of the Year,” or how fashionable he fancies himself. He must be doing all that as a coverup. I think these five videos tell you a lot more about him than any of that other garbage. He’s such a good player, it’s a real shame he has to stoop to this level.
