Re: 2013 NBA Playoffs
Wade has a chance to match Kobe's 5 titles, especially if they can keep that team together. He is the greatest shot blocking guard of all time and made six or seven absolutely phenomenal defensive plays last night. He was as good as anyone can be in his physical condition.
As for the dirty part, I watched some of the youtube clips of him being dirty and most of them are a reach. He's got a little old school NBA in him. Let them know you are here. Look up Kobe. Look up Garnett. Look up Chris Paul. Look up Kevin Mchale. Tons of players do/did that stuff.
I guess it depends on your viewpoint. For example, Tim Duncan is considered clean and pure, but if you watch him, he does a ton of little things to gain subtle advantages. Last night, there was a big play in the fourth where Chris Bosh went to set a screen and got called for a moving screen. Why? Tim gave him a little shove on the way to the screen. Is that intending to hurt someone? No. Is it dirty? Maybe not. Who knows.
