No. He's dirty. I've never looked up his clips on YouTube. I've seen him do stuff during the games. I don't mind hard fouls on a guy with the ball. Breaking Kobe's nose in the AS game was dirty but its one of the things lower on the list. This article was posted here this year but a lot that stuff I said on this board last year.
Wade does stuff that as a long time basketball player you know better than to do. I've said it so many times, I don't really care about his flopping and doing things to gain an advantage. Wade goes beyond that. Shoving dudes from behind on a dead run. He dropped the People's Elbow on Parker last night.
If this was old school NBA it would be cool because he'd get his back. In the days before a good hard foul became an F1. That's the way I was taught. Old school where you don't give up easy layups, you try to make a play on the ball but you don't let them get the shot up on the rim. The thing is the more the league has changed to protect stars driving to the basket the dirtier Wade has become.
Everyone's gotten frustrated on the court at one time and done something they aren't proud of and if it were a couple isolated incidents I think Wade would be ok. IMO, I see a pattern.
I don't know why. Perhaps as his body has started to betray him and his skills have faded just slightly he's gotten frustrated. There was a point in last nights game where Wade tried to get to the basket but couldn't and he thought he got fouled, then his man scored at the other end and I could see his frustration mounting. I posted on Facebook
"The Spurs better look out Wade is getting frustrated and that's when he's dangerous.....literally he's gonna injure someone." But then he made a jumper and the frustration faded.
