Non-issue just like the Lebron shoulder bump last season.

And it's pretty obvious that Wade and Lebron run the show. They have no respect for Spo. They need a coach that is willing to light a fire under their butts if they're playing bad. Someone that they will fear disappointing. Right now the only option I can think of is Pat Riley or Phil Jackson.

Yeah, they'll get over it. I'm curious as to what happened though...like what was all said and what instigated it. It was right after a horrific series for Wade, so I'm sure Spo was trying to tell him something constructive and emotions just took over.

Heat of the moment...emotions...

They'll get over it.

I imagine he tried to coach Wade, only for him to say he doesnt need to be coached you video coordinator.

If Spo had any balls he wouldve benched Wade and tried to win the game instead of appeasing a struggling all-star (notice the lack of the word - SUPER)

Don't agree that it's a non-issue.. This is the head coach, if you can't respect him then there's something going on here. Maybe Spo needs to go, maybe Wade needs to man up..

You're part leader of the team, set the example.

There have been PLENTY of cases where star players and coaches have clashed. I don't blame Wade for being on thin ice, because I think Spo is sucking hard, and he himself was sucking hard thus emotions got the best of him. I don't know what Spo said, but unless it was something incredibly childish or immature, he had every right to say something to Wade.

I do think it will boil over. Heat of the moment...and emotions took over. They have a common goal, and especially if they bounce back, it will be water under the bridge.

If they don't bounce back...well...

Sucks to be LeBron right now. He teamed up with Wade and Bosh to ensure he would always have help, but Bosh is injured and Wade is playing horrendous ball. Now tensions are flaring between player and coach.

I remember this happening several years ago between Wade and Gary Payton. Granted it's quite a bit different when you have such an exchange with your coach, but I'm not bothered by this at all if I'm a Heat fan. If anything, I'm encouraged that they're both frustrated and unsatisfied with what's going on in the series.

Unless of course this leads to absolute dissension. That would be no good.

What would be funny *** hell to me is... Wade recruited LeBron and Bosh to the Heat. If the Heat don't win the championship this year, one of "the big 3" gotta go to sign some good players. You see them really struggling without Bosh, LeBron is playing his *** off and Wade is supremely struggling to make things happen on the court.... How ****ed up would it be if WADE was the one traded and he's been the face of the franchise since his arrival in South Beach? Wade recruits LeBron, Bosh comes over because of LeBron and Wade and then WADE gets traded.... That would be interesting to say the least...

This is true, i've heard him saying to his team let's get it popping like he's a dj at a club. I get that they are superstars and have to motivate themselves to win but good coaches can motivate and inspire, spo's huddles are the worst.

Still, no excuse for wade's actions.

When Wade entered the league he was one of the most humble, classy and down to earth players. He was a breath of fresh air to have in the league, much like Kevin Durant & Derrick Rose. He always let his game speak for itself. Even when angered he would put his head down and dominate (if anybody can remember when Knicks bloodied him and he whent nuts diggin Miami out of a double digit hole and winning the game single handedly) Wade has always shown maturity and class in interviews, always very truthful and honest. Even last season during the whole Lebron/Miami Villains fiasco Wade projected and carried himself quite well spite of everything. But it's funny how things can turn. It's funny how it only takes 2 seasons for Lebron to have his influence on a player like Wade.

You can say what you will about how Wade has been acting the past 2 seasons but fact is he was never really like this, or as bad when it comes to certain things. Wade spite of all the Spo critics has always had his back from day 1 without fail, win or lose.

Since Lebron joining Heat i've never seen Wade flop, flail, whine, intentionally fouling players and now resorting to yelling at his coach. I hate to say it but he has really turned into a punk in these last 2 seasons. It's a sad thing to see because i thought he was much better than this.

I'm starting to think everything Lebron touches turns to crud acquiring personal achievements like mvp's along the way.

For all the true Miami fans who followed Wade & Heat for a long time now i'm sure you can understand what i'm saying about Wade.

Coach spo needs to put his foot down and tell Wade to STFU. You can't not hustle back on defense and then yell at the coach for calling you out and making you accountable. Wade is being a spoiled piece of crap. He won't even own up to the situation itself.

If this was another hard nosed coach, Wade would get benched. Someone needs to put some of these stars in check.

I blame them both for this tbh, bron and wade don't want a real coach there, they want a coach they can step on, a coach who sets things up the way they want it done. And so does pat Riley for thst matter, we al know damn well pat is giving spo a lot of direction.

What happened to all that talk of bron and his post up game that he said he would practice ad use this year? Nope, he's right back to camping the 3 line and waiting for the ball, taking his sweet time settling things up.

Both are great players, but the only coach they will listen to in the world might be Riley. No other coach has a chance, they've been put to far high on the throne by everyone around them for that.

Lol Really? It was said he told him "Don't you ****ing talk to me" while raising his fist at the end. Howard and Haslem came in and separated him, Spo said something back and Wade went towards him and his teammates pushed him away.

Spo and Wade did not speak for the rest of the game including post game locker room.

ouch! You make some good points, i love wade and probably always will, but i thought he and lebron mocking dirk was a big punk move, maybe lebron has had that big of an influence, but wade also had a really nasty divorce and that dirtied up his image a bit and lebron didnt have anything to do with that.

If Spo had any balls he wouldve benched Wade and tried to win the game instead of appeasing a struggling all-star (notice the lack of the word - SUPER)

Plus one ... I would've benched Wade, he was shooting bricks. With out the refs baling wade out you get to see his skill.. Not any better than when he entered the league.
Imo Miami need to go big at the guard position. Move Wade to pg where he can post more and start another shooting guard/small forward, have james play pg, bc that's whathe is. Miami may be small down low, but with a big guard line up thery force teams to remove a primary ball handler, and maybe the best shooter.

good point, also the big guard line makes it more difficult to feed the guys down low and use their weakness against them. THe problem is neither wade or lebron want to start at PG (or should i say "will") and like it has been brought up many times, spoe is not a guy that can stand up to them.

Mario could be one of those dynamic guys coming off the bench going against backups or winded starters and have a scorers mentality, as a starter he is a mediocre at best PG.

You can say what you will about how Wade has been acting the past 2 seasons but fact is he was never really like this, or as bad when it comes to certain things. Wade spite of all the Spo critics has always had his back from day 1 without fail, win or lose.

Since Lebron joining Heat i've never seen Wade flop, flail, whine, intentionally fouling players and now resorting to yelling at his coach. I hate to say it but he has really turned into a punk in these last 2 seasons. It's a sad thing to see because i thought he was much better than this.

I'm starting to think everything Lebron touches turns to crud acquiring personal achievements like mvp's along the way.

For all the true Miami fans who followed Wade & Heat for a long time now i'm sure you can understand what i'm saying about Wade.

lol. Any chance people can take to blame LeBron and hate on him...

Honestly, this is pathetic. Wade is his own person independent of LeBron. Wade was not this saint tainted by the devil that you and so many portray LeBron James. I seem to recall a very whiny, flopping D-Wade for years now. Trying to pin this on LeBron is just asinine.

Again, if you havent been following Wade since draft in 03 don't bother responding because the Wade you see now has never been the player he used to be until very recently. And i can prove that 10x fold if you really want me to go into archives of seasons prior to the 10/11 FA Fiasco.

Furthermore, i'm not sure if you saw the sort of influence Lebron had on his team mates in Cleveland. The pre-game pretend camera shoots, which was just complete immature, showing off garbage. The way he turned his team mates into fans and cheer leaders cheering for him on the bench like fan boys. and not to mention the in-game dance-a-thons. Moreover, i used to remember being a fan of Mo Williams as a Buck then i could hardly recognize him as a Cavs all of a sudden showing so much ego. I'm sure you all remember his premature guarantee game winning speech in the playoffs. This is the same dude that was absolutely distraught that Lebron didn't even tell him personally of his plans to leave. Lebron has a great influence in his team mates even if you choose to believe or not.

Is it just me, or does it chap your *** when fans/players say "they don't respect him. they need a coach to light a fire under their ***". Really? You can't motivate yourself? You have a big vicotry party before playing a game again and declare yourself a dynasty. Shouldn't THAT motivate you to deliver? You really need a guy who makes a fraction of what you do and never played a game in the pros to motivate you?

Wade is a *****. During all the drama that surrounded the big 3, Wade was the one I liked and defended while everyone ripped the Heat. Wade is no no better than any other drama whore. As odd as it is to say, Bosh is the one that I have developed more respect for. Wade and Bron are always just spouting off or playing grab *** with each other.

All I know is that despite his poor play in the game, everybody has a bad game, it (his actions on the sideline) also hurt his team for sure in THAT game. Emotions can get the best of anybody, but he certainly did his team no favors last night.

I'm sure he will play better in game 4. I just wonder if there is something going on between Wade and Spo that finally boiled over or if it was just a heat of the moment sort of thing.

All I know is that in the post game interview Wade still seemed to be pretty pissed.

When Wade entered the league he was one of the most humble, classy and down to earth players. He was a breath of fresh air to have in the league, much like Kevin Durant & Derrick Rose. He always let his game speak for itself. Even when angered he would put his head down and dominate (if anybody can remember when Knicks bloodied him and he whent nuts diggin Miami out of a double digit hole and winning the game single handedly) Wade has always shown maturity and class in interviews, always very truthful and honest. Even last season during the whole Lebron/Miami Villains fiasco Wade projected and carried himself quite well spite of everything. But it's funny how things can turn. It's funny how it only takes 2 seasons for Lebron to have his influence on a player like Wade.

You cannot blame LeBron for Wade's actions. That's beyond ludicrous. Wade is his own man and if he truly has become what you say he is, it's Wade's character that you should question, not LeBron.

This. Wade is my favorite player ever, and for all of the things you said. He has really pissed me off the past two years by acting like LeBron.

However, PSD could really use a little perspective. I'm really tired of the way people have flip-flopped. When Wade and James were free agents everyone wanted them on their team. Especially NY and CHI fans. As soon as they teamed up, everyone hated both of them and they're "chokers" and "losers" etc. When it started, it was all LeBron who sucked, blah blah. Wade was "Batman" and he was "the closer" and "the better playoff player" etc, etc.

Now that the LeBron hate is old and you can't say anything because he won an MVP while Wade was injured, everyone now hates Wade and he's "always" been a *****, and he's just an "all star" not a superstar (even though he's a top5 player without a doubt), and he's "garbage" and needs to be benched.

NY and CHI fans - for the most part - have been every bit as big of "*****es" as LeBron and Wade. In fact, they've been a lot worse. But they still get a free pass to run their mouths and say whatever they want, and it doesn't matter if it contradicts anything, and there was never a time when they wanted these guys on their team. It is simply remarkable.

I understand what your saying Raider, but again you have had to been following Wade since 2003 to be able to see that this is a large contrast of who he has been and is. It's a real significant discrepency in character. It's only been in the past 2 seasons that he has been acting like a punk. 09/10 season u never saw him flailing & flopping around like a girl expecting a call. you never saw him give petty dangerous intentional fouls - he always put his head down and beast when ever he was angry. You never saw him curse out/yell at his coach. You never saw him celebrating prematurely like an idiot. Never hear him mock other teams or players.............

.................... So why then all of a sudden later in his career when one as mature and dignified as Wade is acting like a complete and utter punk!?!? Again we all saw the horrible influence Lebron had on is team mates as a Cav. We saw him blame his coach, dance, sing around and celebrate wins prematurely. why can't people even open up to the idea he has rubbed off on somebody like Wade?

I think true Wade fans have solid arguments to back that he has been influenced in some way significantly. It's not like Wade was slowly growing into a punk. Funny nobody was talking about him in this manner before the 2010/2011 season. Always carried and projected himself well in the media and in games. THe excessive flopping, flailing, fouling, pettiness etc. occured during the BIG 3 era. I'm sure people have all witnessed how much of a flialing and flopping actor Lebron is(see foul on Rose last season in the playoffs and Lebron winking after etc).

And again to Lebon/Miami fans this is no diss to Lebron James. IF anything what i've stated about Lebron has been seen and documented all over the media so it's not like i can lie about what i'm saying about him. The only thing you can really argue is about me saying he has influenced Wade. But again it's my opinion on why i think Wade has had a 360 degree turn in character within these last 2 season. And i think it's valid since i have followed him since 2003. I'm sure their are a hand full of Miami fans who remember me.

Look, I get it, as a Heat fan we all want to protect LeBron from the stupid hatred, and we're all defensive, I get it. I get it. But reality check.... LeBron had a PROVEN track record around the league for 7 years before coming to South Beach. He was a self-centered, immature punk. Wade had a PROVEN track record before LeBron came... He was the humble superstar, the anti-Kobe, the DRose before there was a DRose. The humble champion.

I'm not saying it's all LeBron's fault. I'm not saying Wade isn't responsible for who he becomes himself. Of course that is true. But nothing in these kinds of situations is 100% one person's fault. Life doesn't work that way. We are a mix of a product and a reaction to our environments. LeBron has certainly affected/influenced Wade in a negative way. Anyone who has followed Wade's career (I have followed him since 2001) can see it.

It's only been in the past 2 seasons that he has been acting like a punk. 09/10 season u never saw him flailing & flopping around like a girl expecting a call. you never saw him give petty dangerous intentional fouls - he always put his head down and beast when ever he was angry. You never saw him curse out/yell at his coach. You never saw him celebrating prematurely like an idiot. Never hear him mock other teams or players.............

.................... So why then all of a sudden later in his career when one as mature and dignified as Wade is acting like a complete and utter punk!?!? Again we all saw the horrible influence Lebron had on is team mates as a Cav. We saw him blame his coach, dance, sing around and celebrate wins prematurely. why can't people even open up to the idea he has rubbed off on somebody like Wade?

I'll always remember this.

The salaries of athletes are in no way related to their intelligence. Also, at least 2/3 of those athletes lose everything they've earned within 5 years of retirement--perhaps that is a better indication of how smart they are.

haha love this response... burned
