IIRC, Heat were about to go 3-1 against the Bulls that year in the regular season.

The Bulls announcers try to justify the bush league play by Nocioni.

"Nocioni was upset with Wade"

"Then afterwards Haslem attacked Nocioni"

"There was a little push by Wade" (I didn't see the push, but I'm guessing they're referring to Wade trying to disentangle himself from Nocioni after Nocioni was still holding onto Wade after the foul)

Stan Van Gundy calls it a "punk move" in the post-game interview, then Scott Skiles responds by laughing at the thought that it was a "punk move".

And that's how the Heat-Bulls rivalry was born in the Wade era.

Yep, thats pretty much when i started hating them.


First round exit smack talk didnt help things either. Then i think it only further escalated with all the close games and buzzer beaters and then the 2010 FA talk, then the d rose fanboyism and now where at the top 2 teams in the conference.

Really sucks cause i used to love the bulls too.

It really wasn't that bad. He fouled him normally at the beginning and then he gave the extra push after (clearly intentionally) Hell the Wade foul yesterday on Rip Hamilton was much worse than this.

My favorite was Posey laying out Hinrich. Hell, if I was a Bulls fan, I still wouldn't be able to stand Hinrich and his hobbit-like features.

I wish NBA in general was this aggressive. I love when all the teams hate each other, it makes winning that much better.

Then maybe Lebron didn't have to decide a yr prior joining the Heat to change his number to 6. :)

I don't get how something that happened 6 years ago has any impact on a rivalry now. Most people that were with the teams then aren't there anymore. They're rivals because they're the two best teams in the eastern conference. That's pretty much it.

THIS.

Bulls fans don't like the Heat, but I wouldn't call it a rivalry. They are "rivals" in the sense they are the top two teams, but nothing more.............

Can't wait to see the playoffs. Bulls Vs. Heat is gonna be insane...

I wish the Bulls had a Rodman type player, cause seriously Wade needs to be knocked on his *** especially after the last game lol.

I would love for someone to give wade a hard foul(not hurting him) the dude plays a lot more agressive when he is mad.

If you think wade would cry your crazy:laugh2: First someone on your team would actually have to commit a hard foul and im not sure you have an enforcer on your team. Second, wade would go ham if you hard foul him, so by all means, i would love to see a bulls player put a hard foul(not hurting him) on wade.

The Bulls almost always take what Miami gives them. And they do it with pleasure. Hardly ever do they put up a fight.

They need to find an enforcer. Otherwise, they're going to keep getting pushed around.

90% of the time the defender flies into him. It's actually a great move. Barkley was the master at this move. It's the defenders fault for buying the pump fake. Keep hating. You do alot of it.

I mean seriously Justin, you're acting like Wade is your freaking hero. No offense, that's kinda sad...

And by the way, he has cried. Remember? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfuJS0SBSac)

Still never understood the wheelchair for a dislocated shoulder. He's a pretty tough player so I'm sure he had a reason, but thats something you very rarely see.

Same reason Pierce need it: attention.

In all seriousness, when you're in such pain, it's kind of hard to walk.

I'm with koz. Little too much emotion sticking up for wade. Were rivals cause were the two best teams in the east and its a dog fight every game. Noc has no bearing to the current rivalry. Assuning both teams make it to the ecf, its gonna be a badass series. Even more so if rose is healthy and in rhythm. All this nonsense between fans and this my dad could beat up your dad talk nakes me sick. enjoy the game. Btw, you're not playing in it.

not sure why that poster even mentioned his dad lol

Like i said, if your going to foul wade hard, make sure he doesn't return in the game.

I never said he is, my point is more along the lines that we don't need a defined "enforcer" it's as useless as any other cliché label. Point is, if a player feels the need to make a hard foul, they'll do it whether it's Boozer, Noah, Taj or anyone else on that team.

And I expect even more this postseason after some of the moves Miami pulled last game.
