On the last play of the game Wade with the game pretty much over and dunked it.
I know skip bayless will have a field day if it was LBJ

Did Wade get a pass?
if it was LBJ would everyone be having a Field day with him today



I didnt do this to bait or nothing just wanna know what you guys think?

I got mad when Wade did that. .You had the game already won, the sixers were going to the sidelines Ethier Lebron or Wade I didnt think it was nesscary

Yeah I noticed that too... And to answer your question, Yes they would be all over him because LBJ probably would have threw it down 10x harder.

Non issue to me.

If Kobe would have done that, Laker fans would have loved it, especially since it's the playoffs.

If Rose would have done it, the way they're all over him, there's no denying they wouldn't have loved it in my opinion.

If your favorite player on your team would have done it, it would be a non issue.

But to answer your question, if it were Lebron, the guy would be facing heavy criticism.

This is the truth. If he did that it would be a huge NBA story, perhaps even superseding his team's win.

Notice all the players in the Denver series that didn't shake hands too (some did, some didn't). Not a peep about that. Every series there are players that just leave the court...but LeBron is the only one we care about.

He will forever be treated with a huge double-standard.

Telling people to shut up in a game that was still very much up in the air vs. dunking against a team that WASN'T defending you when you're up by four with time expiring? Yeah; I definitely think Wade's move was more classless.

I get what you're saying but I don't think "double-standard" is the word for it. He gets a lot of attention because of how good he is, yes. But he's also brought a lot of the attention on himself. When you market yourself as a billion-dollar brand, you're going to be put under a microscope. When you say dumb things in the media, same thing. When you make a one hour special out of your free-agency decision, we're in a whole other level of attention. It comes with the territory, and while it's wrong to criticize him and not Wade for something like this, I'm not exactly sympathetic.

Every team should strive for good sportsmanship, be it a pop warner team or a professional one. What Wade did was unnecessary, especially given that it came against a Doug Collins-coached team. Doug is all class all the time. And none of those Philly players did anything to merit a slap in the face (excepting Thaddeus Young's head-butting of James Jones). If you're going to punch a team in the mouth when they're down, do it against a team that plays dirty. Don't do it against the Sixers.

:facepalm:

That said, it seems as if Wade is accepting the villain role, which may turn out to be a good thing. Or maybe he was simply airing out some frustration.

If LBJ would´ve dunked the ball like Wade did last night, he would´ve been killed by the press since he has a history of douche moves like not shaking hands with the Magic players and quiting on Cleveland.

You stay classy, Wade!

I'm a Sixers fan and it don't bother me. I don't let stuff like that get to me. It does not change the out come of the game.

People need to move on from the Lebron hate, its just better to let hate go then to focus on it.

I'm also going to add that sometimes a team need a dunk like that, even if at the wrong time. Wade may have done that dunk to emphatically close the series and get the team even more pumped for there next game.

bad form to put points on the board with the game already in hand. No excuse for it, no matter who it is. It's one of those 'classy' issues, seems to me this generation of players are losing it.

LeBron James is the best player in basketball. With that in mind, his conduct, performance, attitude, etc. does get higher scrutiny.

That is no different than other players who have been the best in the league. The media focus on Michael Jordan was a lot more significant than it was on Hakeem Olajuwon for example.

So yeah, more would be made of it were it LeBron, but that is because of his stature in the game more than anything else.

Yeah, very poor judgment on Wade's part. Just holding the ball and running the clock out would've done just fine. But LeBron has become that guy to ridicule now, and if he did that, then we would never hear the end of it, not just on PSD, but nationally as well.

Not true.
And when Sasha Vujacic did it to some team in the play-offs, he got smashed by us Laker fans (and publicly raked by his teammates). I thought the exiting 76ers deserved a better send off from a veteran superstar than that. I understand sending a message, but there was no next game. They were a defeated young team.
But...whatever. It isn't much of an issue. Just have to respond to posts that make blanket statements about a team's entire fanbase. I'm sure there were even some Heat fans that felt, for lack of a better word, uncomfortable. we're not all extremist robots last I checked;)

04-28-2011, 12:49 PM
while it probably wasn't the best idea, I think Wade was trying to dunk at the buzzer. Honestly, I think he knows better and let's be honest, there was 0.6 seconds left after he dunked it. I think his intention was to dunk it at the buzzer or half a seconds after the buzzer as a celebration dunk

totally different. every away player wants to quiet the crowd what randolph did was nothing wrong with. back to the main topic if bron would of been the one to dunk it. yes it would of been the #1 news of the day. well maybe besides the NFL draft.

04-28-2011, 12:51 PM
I'm not a fan of it usually but with 10 seconds left and Philly basically walked off the court, why not go dunk it. The guy who didn't need to do anything but take it up court is the only one who was still playing. So he was rewarded for it.

its ridiculous how much criticism lebron gets for his on the court play. if he passes to a wide open guy in a game winning situation, and the guy misses, lebron gets hammered for being too passive in late game situations. or if lebron actually takes the last shot and misses, he gets hammered for being an unclutch player. for some reason, the media loves to criticize lebron, which i think is unwarranted if we are talking about his on court play.

2 if LBJ did it then 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th down would have been about him rome would have been in flames and the 2 bald eagles on PTI would have had a 5 minute interview and gave him 5 f's

God, Bulls fans are disgusting! They act like LeBron didn't dump Cleveland, he dumped Chicago.

I didn't really care about what Wade did. It was more of an expression of relief for him to finally get a team and get past the first round since 2006. If LeBron did it there would be 15 threads to bash him on psd. And the media would go crazy over him as well.
