Anybody else tired of hearing about Wade's so-called ailments before all these games?
No, great players play through injuries when their team needs them the most.

there's one of two ways to look at wade with all the injuries he seems to always have at the end of the season...

either he's one of those guys who gets a little tweek and feels it's a major injury that needs teams of doctors to fix when it's really not that bad (i've known a few of those guys along the way)

or he's very injury prone, is able to play through the injuries for now, but it will ultimately lead to him breaking down physicaly by the time he hits 30.

i highly doubt he's simply making the injuries up.

I like this idea.


There is no doubt he is a great player.
The tweeks and illnesses he's had this postseason really tie into his 'knock me down - and I'll get up' persona that he has going... ie. his Converse commercial. I'm just tired of the media projecting the 'will he play - won't he play - how will he play' every time he tweeks something to build drama for these games.

Wade is on his ass after every play. It will take a toll on your body.

which solidifies his spot as the bigger, more athletic Iverson.

If he tweeks himself continuously at 23, and as much as he finds himself on the floor during games, he will be broken down by 30.

Stackhouse is suspended for Game 5. That hurts for Dallas.

Guys, I stayed out drinking last night, and now I'm feeling a bit crummy the morning after.

It's okay though. I'm a gamer, so I'm still going to go to work. See ya.

the last play that put dwyane wade on the line never should have happened... not because wade probably should have passed the ball about 5 times before he finally shot over three people like his name was kobe... not because he was probably fouled about 5 times on the perimeter... not because the foul they finally called was a call that would have been questionable in the first quarter, let alone in overtime... not because josh howard stupidly took a time out...

no... the play that wade took never should have happened because he jumped from one side of the half court line, caught the ball in mid air, and landed on the other side.

back court violation. should have been dallas' ball.

but there was no grand conspiracy for the refs to miss that call. or the fouls on the outside they missed, or the BS call against shaq when josh howard pretty much just fell down.. or the ticky tack foul to put wade on the line... it was just bad foul calls against both teams right down the line.

and for me, at least, they tainted what was otherwise a great game.


as for wade... i dunno... he takes a bunch of awful shots. but when the game's on the line they tend to go in more often than not. it doesn't annoy me because the heat win... i don't care who wins. it annoys me because the media soooo wants "another jordan" that any good young player that comes along gets declared "the next jordan" when wade and lebron are completely different players than jordan.

newsflash to the news media... there have been other great players besides michael jordan. comparing someone to someone other than jordan is not an insult.

hasn't there been a rule change where you can pass into the backcourt on the inbound pass and it's not a backcourt violation? Or am I wrong?

I agree with your other points though, and he should've dished it to one of the 2 other open guys.
