when Wade drove past Rondo - and the Celtics guard grabbed Wade around the neck. Wade appeared as though he was ready to throw the ball at Rondo in retaliation, and stopped himself.
''I thought he hooked me,'' Rondo said.
Wade had a different opinion.
''It was a punk play by him,'' Wade said. ''The league will take care of it. He clotheslined me, with two hands.''

Terrible defense by Rondo on that play.

The flagrant wasn't nearly what I expected it to be but he should still know better then to grab around the neck area.
He could of easily wrapped Wade up without doing that.

"I'm here to play basketball, man," Wade said. "If you want to do something else, then go do something else. Boxing, this is not it. I was glad I was able to stop myself in that very moment and move on from it. We'll see next time we play."

oh snap

I stopped watching around this time, so I missed it.

I've seen harder clotheslines in the nba. Its not that big of a deal. Dwight Howards flagrant today was meaner, and that wasn't worthy of a suspension either.

Two handed clothesline it was not. Shouldn't have done it, but it was anything too terribly dirty in my mind. No excessive force so not a flagrant 2.

I love Rondo's game but he's getting less and less impressive as a person to me. He has a punk attitude and it's not "heart," it's a chip on his shoulder, and it's not fun or cool. It's old and it's played out.

People like Skip Bayless probably love it because they want players to hate each other but people who understand basketball and love it as a sport don't need a storyline to enjoy the game and don't need dangerous stuff like this happening.

Well, Wade had no intentions of breaking Kobe's nose during the game, though the foul was a bit out of place. As far as Rondo, I don't expect any class or any sort of sportsmanship from him anyway so I'd be lying to people if I said I was surprised by this. Oh we'll. We move on.

All the Celtics fans bringing up/crying about Rondo hurting his elbow certainly must not mean the play that Rondo initiated by hanging all over Wade from the back, pounding the other elbow into Wade's neck area, trying to wrestle him down because he isn't capable of defending him in a normal fashion, only to be taken along for the ride to the ground?

Because that is somehow not karma hitting sneaky little Rondo in the face (or rather, elbow), but a dirty play by Wade... right? really? :rolleyes:

Wade's one of the dirtiest players in the league. That wasn't restraint, it was just Wade thinking it would be too obvious if I retalliated now. He'll just stick it into a game down the road where it will look legit.

How about when Wade backed his hip up into a driving Jeff Green earlier in the game? That play could have caused a lot more injury to Green than what Rondo did to Wade. Wade is famous for getting away with those in game dirty plays. Rondo's gets the attention because it's late in the game and too blatant. He needs to be more discreet with his dirty plays, like Wade is.

I knew someone would bring this up. Wade stood still defending and Green basically jumped into Wade and the reaction was the collision between the two. Wade was a good sport after anyways, as he helped Green up. You don't see Rondo apologizing or being a good sport to Wade after clotheslining him.

No, that's classic Wade. Watch it again and you'll see how he backed his butt up into Green. It's dirty. A normal player would move the opposite direction or stop, but Wade keeps moving up and under Green's body. Wade is famous for his "follow throughs" in his fouls. Like how he "fell" on Rondo and dislocated his arm in the playoffs. It causes injury and it has no place in the game.

Yes, but there a few notable players who follow through too much on their fouls. Artest, Bowen, Wade, and James Posey certainly come to mind right away.

I'm a Celtics fan and thought that the foul wade on Jeff Green wasn't too bad.....He shouldn't of undercut him (backed in) but I think he was trying to purposely foul green and then got caught in a no win situation and turned to protect himself. The fact that he immediately tried helping Green up is cool in my book too. As for the Rondo foul I didn't even think it was flagrant worthy.....It was more on his shoulder and as he spun it moved to his neck area. It's not like rondo threw him to the ground he was just trying to prevent the drive. That flop by Chalmers pissed me off but didn't Garnet club him in the face on a breakaway later? I honestly think it was a much closer game than the box score dictates. Celtics need some time to gel with their new parts and get some of that much needed bench production.

Don't bring up the time when Rondo got his elbow dislocated watch the clip again that was all gravity and rondo was behind wade with wade coming down on him wade didn't push pull or throw rondo in any way shape or form these Boston fans I swear. Especially the one with KG pic and you're saying Wade is cheap he got notes from your boy KG. If you believe Wade is dirty and don't put KG on the same tab your opinion is completely biased and invalid.

Does the rule on flagrant fouls say anything about a player going to the floor? No it is a foul that is not a basketball play. What Rondo did was not a basketball play, it was thuggery. He got a flagrant, will get fined and maybe someday he will grow up and play the game the way it is supposed to be played.

I have to agree with wade. It was a punk move by rondo. I said before the game started that I like rondo as a player, but he comes across as a punk sometimes. It wasn't that far over the top, but he definitely went for his neck on purpose which makes him look like a sore looser.

Not sure if srs. Wade clearly wanted to block that and saw Green already had him beat and tried to back off.

Are you people serious when you claim Chalmers flopped? It's called flinching. Garnett is like a whole foot taller than Chalmers and acted like he was going to swing an elbow, which he DOES every offensive possession. Some of you people are the biggest homers I've ever seen.

Wade got away with a little hook, but who cares? it's not like Boston don't play dirty too, I am glad Wade tries to punk Boston every chance he gets, we need that kind of mentality, nobody is going to come in AAA and boss the Heat around period!
The flagrant on Rondo wasn't really that bad, but nowadays anything in the head n neck area can be serious so I am glad they called it as they did. No need to go at Rondo the next time they play though, that wasn't the type of foul you retaliate from. Rondo was just frustrated is all.

Wow.

Watching the play, it looked like Rondo didn't intentionally try to hook Wade and throw him down. He was going for a strip/block and got hooked onto Wade while swiping for it. He didn't try to throw Wade to the ground or anything, just stop him from getting easy points.

If Rondo wanted to, he could have easily thrown Wade to the ground, having Wade hooked like that. Just my interpretation though, I know others will see it in a different light.

Rondo better be careful or Dwyane wont invite him to join the Heat when he becomes a free agent. It'd be a sad day if NBA players started to dislike players on different teams.

I'm shocked there's a thread for this. Really wasn't that serious, got a flagrant 1 which was warranted. No fine or suspension should come of this, unless the league is just really getting soft.

Wade has committed frustration fouls in his time, saying it's a punk move is very D-Wade-ish to say the least in that he is constantly complaining.

Sure everyone remembers what he did to Kobe in the ALL STAR game... It's part of the game unless he labels his a punk move as well.

Does the rule on flagrant fouls say anything about a player going to the floor? No it is a foul that is not a basketball play. What Rondo did was not a basketball play, it was thuggery. He got a flagrant, will get fined and maybe someday he will grow up and play the game the way it is supposed to be played.

and did he get a flagrant called on him like he should? yes! get over it this is professional basketball not pickup basketball and rondo got tired of seeing a rival go to the basket at will and he has history with wade i have 0 problem with it

its hard basketball and rondo sent a message to wade and the heat. he got dealt with by the refs its not like he got away with it

move on


Overreaction from fans.

Wasn't even that bad. Punk move? Yes. Worth getting riled over? No.

Anyone who is upset over this should go watch golf.

Seriously, some fans are getting as soft as the players are now. And Wade should shut his mouth, he has committed many fouls that are far worse than this.

When the hell did the NBA, it's players, and many of it's fans turn into a powder puff league?

It was a flagrant 1, but one of the weakest flagrants I've seen in some time.

I wouldn't be surprised if the officials were laughing about it later.

Not a big deal. I doubt Wade or Rondo is losing any sleep over it.

Didn't Wade break Rondo's arm 2 years ago and didn't he break kobes nose last year in an all star game? Yeah he's one to call a foul a punk move you want to see a clothesline watch what Raja Bell did to Kobe, didn't see Kobe whine.

Are you people serious when you claim Chalmers flopped? It's called flinching. Garnett is like a whole foot taller than Chalmers and acted like he was going to swing an elbow, which he DOES every offensive possession. Some of you people are the biggest homers I've ever seen.

Actually, I was the one who brought it up (im a knicks fan), and garnett had his elbows up 2 seconds before he crossed chalmers. He could have easily steped to the side

and get over the Wade breaking Rondo's elbow ****.

Rondo tied him up preventing Wade from chasing a loose ball, they both fell in the struggle and Rondo broke his arm. Wade always gets in Rondo's head, that's Rondo's problem, not Wade's.

A "dirty play" was when Wade forearmed Rip Hamilton to send a message.

You're reaching. He was asked a question about the play and he responded to it. You're making a mountain out of a molehill here.

Secondly, you mean to tell me that grabbing a player across the neck to foul without any play being made on the ball isn't a flagrant? If this is the case, then you need to read the rules.

No point in trying to tell some of the other non heat fan posters whether it was a flagrant or not they will still complain. Was the flagrant all extra intense or really hard and serious no it wasn't, but it still doesn't change the fact that it was a flagrant. Why do you think they have flagrant 1 and 2's. It was a flagrant 1 a mild foul that clearly wasn't a play on the ball enough said.

Yes, Chalmers better be fined on that or the new rule is a joke.

fined for dodging an elbow? lol ok there. a flop would be chalmers acting like he got hit maybe falling down. all he did is move his head to the side to avoid the elbow kg was threatening to give him. haha some people are so blind with homerism. plus kg later raked him across the head with his arm when chalmers was on a fastbreak anyways. coulda got a flagrant on that one but didn't, so you have nothing to complain about.

While he should have just shrugged it off and laughed in the interview, Wade was directly asked about the play. The demeanor and choice of words could have been better, but he was responding to a direct question I believe. Hardly qualifies as ***** about the call.

This entire thing is blown out of proportion. By the book it was a flagrant (and called as such) and it has only helped fuel an already great rivalry, so I see no issue either way here.

10-31-2012, 04:21 PM
it wasn't bad but it would've been worst if momentum made Wade jumped up, only to be slammed down on his glass body

and with that said, we all know wade gets hurt, he busted his ankles, his shoulders, etc. etc.

and knowing that a player gets hurt, why flagrant foul him? especially that late in the game when its completely over?

im not a heat fan, but its obvious that Rondo had ill intentions, and that was a punk move which could've been much worst.

Punk move by Rondo yeah, the game was already over with Miami up 11 in the last like 25sec and Wade decides to take it to the basket anyways? I'd foul his *** hard too.

10-31-2012, 05:15 PM
He is. According to most people commenting in here, Miami can do no right. Even when an opposing player pulls a legitamite ***** move against the Heat, Miami will get the brunt of criticism. Imagine if this happened vice versa.......

Miami isn't being criticized, at least not by me. I always believed Wade was the type of guy who wouldn't run his mouth like that. I always pictured him in the same boat as Kobe, who wouldn't have said ****.

We all know it was a punk move by Rondo. But when Wade calls him out like that it makes him look like a hypocrite.

I think he could've easily declined to comment, or something to that affect. But he went out of his way to call it a punk play, and said the league will take care of it, and that he was clotheslined with 2 hands, and we'll see next time we play etc...

Wade is a seasoned vet, I just think although Rondo was wrong (but the foul was not even that serious) maybe Wade takes the higher road.

Yup. Why you may ask? Because it is what it is. Rondo behaved very immaturely, and there's simply no getting around it. There's nothing wrong with what Wade said.

I've read enough comments on this board long enough to know that had the situation been reversed, some of you would singing a different tune. I've just had it with the silly hypocrisy and double standards when it comes with this team and its players.

The play that Wade knocked Rondo's elbow out of whack in the playoffs 2 years ago, and the play where he raked Rondo across the face at the end of Game 2 of the ECF last year (and no foul was called) were big deals. They both factored heavily into wins for Miami. Rondo's foul on Wade was not a big deal in the least. It didn't change the game one bit.


‘‘I don’t think it was a hard foul,’’ Rondo said after practice on Thursday. ‘‘He sold it a little bit, and that’s basketball. They were up and they drove to the hole; I didn’t want to give up a layup. It’s as simple as that. I didn’t yank him down.’’

Your an idiot and blind Wade never touched Rondo's elbow they both went to the ground and Rondo landed on it awkwardly watch it again. So you can cry about it some more. And Wade barely touched him when he so called "raked" him across the face you seriously need glasses
