I cant believe people defend that ***** move by Wade in an all star game.

Of course, they are the fan boys that feel the need to ruthlessly defend a guy that has no idea they exist but a flagrant foul in the all star game is classless.

EDIT: If Kobe had done that to Wade, they're opinion would be completely different. I am not a Laker or Heat fan, I probably dislike them equally.

Are you referencing a 1970 MLB all star game to defend Wade's actions??

That is a stretch to say the least...

Whats wrong for one player is wrong for all, even if your crush is the culprit.

And what does Kobe's character and alleged crime have to do with what happened last night??

It's embarrassing how hard you are trying to defend his actions and it is showing your inability to be impartial in these discussions. Things like this will discredit you from every PSD discussion involving the Heat and it's players.

Take your eyes off of the Wade poster above your bed, put your pants back on and admit your dude messed up.

Lol! I'm not defending anybody. Just pointing stuff out. Was it a hard foul? Yeah, so what? It's not like he shoved the guy in mid air and tried breaking his bones. Just a normal hard foul that unfortunately caught the guy's nose. Everyone was pissing and moaning that nobody was trying, and then something like this happens, and the guy is public enemy number one. Now, what's really sad is people like yourself constantly nitpicking at everything these guys do, just because you don't like them.

BUT the foul was uncalled for. its an all star game, you dont break someones nose in an all star game when no one else is even fouling let alone fouling really hard.

also at that point werent the west up by like 20 ? it was a straight hater move by wade. if you noticed he was all over kobe the whole game when every one else was defending their man so lax.

Dont know about the Heat ripoffs and dont really care. Im not a Kobe fan or a Wade fan. Im a Pacer fan. ok so we suck! But i saw Wade purposely break Kobes nose. He was mad cause Kobe burned him a time or two so he let him have it. This is an all star game and crybabies should be excluded. I use to be a big Wade supporter the last couple years ive changed my mind about him, hes a crier. I like James but the dude doesnt want the ball with the game on the line. This ending sucked for the Heat James taking the ball out cause he didnt want to shoot and then Wade missing the easy 3. And why did he try the dangerous pass before that? He should have gone to the rim scored or gotten fouled but he just cant finish. I cant consided him the best player till he grows some nads and learns to finish strong!

I hate Kobe but guy you know I'm the biggest Miami Cheat hater there is. I don't think he meant to break his nose but the foul was abit hard for an ASG. He just tried to swat Kobe so he couldn't go up for an easy bucket and accidently caught him on the nose.

In the end he probably shoulda just let Kobe score because that's what everyone else does (D12 was doing it all game that's why Durant and Westbrook were crammin everything) and there's no point in hard fouls in the game, but his instinct probably took over and just fouled him because that's what he'd normally do in a regular season or playoff game. I don't blame Wade for it...It was only a big deal until it was found out that Kobe had a broken nose and concussion. Nobody really cared when it happened because it didn't look like that hard of a foul.

I've never heard Kobe complaining about it either, we all know Kobe likes the aggressive type, no bull **** grinding type of games.

if this was a reg game or playoff game then id say wade did nothing wrong. but in an allstar game ? cmon man its clear as day what he did stood out like a soar thumb.

thats because kobe is not a girl. have you seen wade cry when he gets fouled in a real game ? Imagine he got a broken nose and cuncussion in an allstar game he would have spazzed like a lil *****.

in order to break someones nose and give them a mild concussion you have to be swinging at them pretty dam hard. Ive been in fights and gotten punches straight in the nose with out it breaking or getting a concussion. the guy punched like a girl but still this is basketball. a non contact sport and on top of it its an all star game.

plus theres no love loss between wade and kobe. theres a clip on youtube where wade is in pain and crying from an injury and kobes over on his bench laughing his *** off. if wasnt at work id post the link lol its pretty funny.

I only watched it once when it happened, but it didn't look like wade tried to do anything cheap. That had the be the least defensive game in nba history, so I don't think Kobe was expecting wade to try and make a defensive play. It kind of caught him by surprise.

naps
02-27-2012, 03:34 PM
Wade is perfectly right as he didn't mean to draw blood. He was trying to make Kobe earn two free throws instead of giving him an easy layup. And it was in the 2nd half. West was playing defense even during the 1st half and East was not. Thus they were trailing by double digits the entire first half. East would play a little harder in the 2nd. So a foul was not surprising. But obviously Wade didn't mean to draw blood.

My last comment was deleted, so I will attempt to clean it up a little bit because I honestly dont know what the definition of "baiting" is.

My point was that some people are defending this and blowing it off and it seems to be the Heat fan base. I can almost guarantee that if Durant were to break Lebrons nose, there would be an uproar about how something should be done or a fine so should be levied. As a Laker fan, im used to Kobe being injured and shaking it off.

While I was watching, I was hoping guys would atleast make it harder for Kobe to score and break Jordan's record. I was cheering Wade on when he was playing harder d and yes it's unfortunate that his nose was broken but Kobe isn't a wuss. I'm sure he's not crying about it like some people in this thread.

There is really no correct way to look at this. Wade obviously didnt want Kobe to get an and-1 so he fouled him and made it hard so he couldnt get it up. I am sure he also was not trying to break Kobes nise or give him a concussion but it did happen. I can understand it being an accident, but he can at least be somewhat more apologetic about it.

Mixed feelings on this, on one hand it seemed like a smart foul and not out of the ordinary when your trying to wrap someone up.

But you cant really judge the strength of the hit through tape, and in order for Kobe to sustain a concussion it had to be a really strong hit right?

It was unnecessary considering the game is meant to be harmless and injury free. It was probably in the heat of embarrassment and accidental, still it was not needed, who cares if you get beat on d in an allstar game.

It wasn't dirty it was just completely unnecessary. Its an All Star game.

"no easy buckets does not apply". Wade shouldn't be knocked for being competitive but its not how he was playing the entire game. EVERYONE was playing soft d and letting dudes finish at the rim the ENTIRE game.

For Wade to all of a sudden turn into Charles Oakley was uncalled for and he broke 24's nose because of it..

Just a dumb play.

Yea the fact that he didn't come over to give the obligatory my bad after he saw Kobe was bleeding also speaks volume. The more I see the play and the reaction the more I see malcontent on D Wade's part.

Corey
02-27-2012, 06:58 PM
Not a dirty play at all.

People are pissy because Wade didn't want to give up an easy hoop in an all-star game.

He was behind Kobe, he swiped down towards the ball, and happened to hit his nose on the way down. It's an unfortunate thing that Kobe broke his nose in a glorified exhibition game, but none of these guys are out there trying to injure each other. That's silly if you think it was intentional.

Competitors are going to compete in a game, regardless of the circumstance. I can't fault Wade from preventing an unguarded dunk, even if it is the all star game. I think people are taking this a little too personally.

Regular Season Game = Solid foul, smart play
Playoff Game = Mandatory play
All Star Game = Dumb Play and uncalled for

What about all-star game where your idol's all-star scoring record is about to be beaten?

That atleast should rank it the same as a regular season game imo lol

Honestly it was a bone head play that was probably just a natural reactions.. more of a tragedy than a bonehead play.

People that are complaining about the foul and saying he was intentionally trying to hurt Kobe are off base. I'm pretty sure he was just going for a hard foul and happened to hit his nose.

What bugs me is that Wade didnt even go ask if Kobe was ok? Even after he started bleeding Wade just kinda smirked and stood there as Kobe went to receive medical attention. And after when was asked about it he gave an excuse for himself, saying he did it because he felt like Kobe fouled him twice so he was giving pay back.

Foul wasnt excessive, his lack of apology was.

This also happened in an all-star game:

Btw, I find it funny that had this happened around 2004, everyone would have given Wade a standing ovation for doing it to the rapist/guy that drove Shaq out of town/most selfish guy in the NBA.

It's true that many people were clueless and irrational back in those days. The truth hadn't been sorted out yet. Today, it's pretty cut and dry that this was a bush league play by a guy frustrated with playing in the shadow of Bryant's era. We all see that, right? ;)

It was a hard foul. Had it come during any other game, it would have been fine, but you hate to see a player get injured during an exhibition game. Dwyane should have saved that one for this coming Sunday.

If that's a regular season game, that's a standard run-of-the-mill Flagrant 1. But it's the All-Star Game, and the refs aren't playing hard, either.

He isn't complaining because come Sunday he's going to torch the heat

He didn't complain much on this one when it happened, either.

And that one seemed to legitimately be an accident. Kobe doesn't forget. I'd prefer that some other Laker carry out the karma, though.

That's OK. The Lakers have more than enough expendable players. Too many. They can do that all day.

I think the foul was unintentional. I just didn't like the fact that D Wade didn't came up to kobe to check if he was alright.

LMFAO!! People are crying because Wade didn't come to Kobe to say "You alright?" Last time I checked Kobe is not a soft guy but kobephiles are softer than gasoft. I am sure Kobe won't be proud of knowing that his clan is this soft.


Funny thing is, if you flip Kobe and Wade in that incident all the kobephiles would be saying "Kobe is a competitor. He's all about business whether it's a pick up game of not. He wants to win...he doesn't compromise...that's how Kobe is."

Haha...LeBron will stand infront of them and they will lose their sense. I can't imagine any athlete in the history that could go with LeBron pound for pound. LeBron is the epitome of a freak nature of physicality.

I am seriously waiting for Heat-Lakers game. I know who's gonna win but it will be fun to see Kobe trying to score a lot of points on Wade and thus making the game even easier for Heat to win.

Basically, when a guy owns you on a spin move and has the open way to the rim, it's basically a ***** move to foul it from behind much less grab him in an all-star game. That's where Wade went wrong with this whole thing. When the guy has you beat and he's basically on his way for an all-star game dunk type of finish around the rim, you don't attack him from behind.

No, people are upset of the fact that he basically grabbed a guy from behind in a freakin all-star game. No need for such physicality unless if it's like a one point game with the game on the line (for competitive reasons).

I can see it now, Rasheed sets a hard screen on Wade who then has to be carried back into the lockerrom.

It was Completely unnecessary SMH.

Don't know why Wade had to go for the head with the hard foul.

I hope Wade doesn't get hurt on Sunday, because he would think it's intentional retaliation.

Also hope MWP doesn't guard Wade on switch play, because he might do something stupid.

Hopefully he does something stupid and gets his *** suspended for the season. Would help out the Lakers in soooooo many ways.

Haha nice. You have to realize at the end of the day, Wade pulled a sissy move because Kobe "got away" with 2 earlier fouls and because Kobe basically owned his *** on that spin move.

Wade was Salty, he never liked Kobe.

Even at his age and 16 yrs in the association, Kobe gets the Nod in the All-NBA 1st teams at that guard position. Since D.Rose reached league MVP status, the man is going to keep getting first team all NBA and occupy one of those guard positions. That second guard position is between Kobe and Wade, and almost always, the coaches are going to vote Kobe. :p As long as Kobe is playing, Wade will never be an All NBA 1st Teamer.


Team USA in 2008, Coach K gave Kobe the nod at that starting SG bench and told Wade to come off the bench, which is fine because Kobe came off a league MVP year.

But now, 4 yrs older (age wise and basketball wise), if Coach K's man crush still exists for Kobe, we can see old Kobe starting at SG for TEam USA this summer with Prime Wade coming off the bench.


Then, Wade will be really MAD, and hell, that might be the end of Kobe as we know it. :laugh2:

Wade said his hard foul was payback for Bryant fouling him twice. “I didn’t try to draw blood,” Wade said, “but he’s still ahead by one.” Case closed.
