As a rookie Micheal Beasley averaged 13.9pts per game on .472 shooting. Do you know how many times Kobe Bryant or Tracy Mcgrady shot at that percent or better? Never in there whole careers. If Beas can be what he was when he was a rookie (he won't hell be better) then the heat are coming away with another steal.
This angers me.
It was clearly unintentional so no suspension was warranted.
Stern just hates Wade.
Anyway Lebron can take out the Pistons by himself and a game off will do Wade good.
He can rest his leg after that vicious nut slam by Ramon.

From the video, I think Wade went a little too far. The foul was already called and there was no need to clear out with his leg. Did he intend to kick him in the nuts I don't think so but I do think he wanted to send a message that Ramon was getting too close. I also agree that had it been a more important game or national TV game Wade would have been fined rather than suspended. The reason all this even got attention was because of the outrage by ESPN and Ramon saying he felt it was intentional, the league had no other option but to take action and not appear as if they are favoring certain teams/players.
