Found March 26, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
In Sunday night's NBA matchup between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder, Thunder center Kendrick Perkins dunked on Heat guard Dwyane Wade. While hanging from the rim, Perkins stuck his foot out and kicked Wade in the face, and there will be some debate as to whether Perkins kicked Wade by accident or did it on purpose.

Wade was not happy and gave Perkins the death stare on the way down the court. Luckily both players kept their cool and things did not escalate.

The Thunder won the game 103-87.

Comments from the other side - Heat/OKC bonus edition 3/25

I couldn't resist doing a bonus edition of CFTOS today since my second favorite team beat my second least favorite team.  Heat fans are such bandwagoners.  So much big talk and bragging in the beginning and so much hate on their own team at the end.  And, when all else fails,  blame the refs.  With all the love the Heat get from the refs,  I don't know how they have...
