View Full Version : Does Wade's style of play put the league in danger?

Him flailing his arms and legs, the elbows, breaking people's noses, giving them concussions, kicking them in the nuts, flopping like a fish, falling down on every single play (whether it be on offense or defense) which could lead to people tripping over him or him falling to sell a call and accidentally falling into someone's knees.

The league should really take a closer look at Wade's extracurricular motions and at least address the players in general about it.

He did that elbow on purpose. He's a really dirty player, but he's probably one of the better ones at getting cheap shots in there since it seems more convincing than most. That's why it's hard to give him a suspension.

It's bad for the league for two reasons:

1. Dirty plays lead to injuries. The league should be, like all other work places, concerned with safety first. That may sound lame, but when people in the work place are doing things to intentionally hurt other people, then that creates an unsafe work environment. The league has done a great job of cracking down on this sort of thing and making the game safer for the players which is great. It is perhaps unfair to compare the NBA to a typical work place. Injuries are expected and it is a high competitive and emotive environment, so while acts of violence don't all deserve 'termination' as they would in a typical work place, they do need to be addressed and reduced. In the 90's there were so many more fights. I don't watch basketball to watch fights, I watch basketball to watch basketball. Hockey, for example, to me, is an inferior sport. Any sport that needs to include fighting to make it entertaining is lacking something. If I wanted to watch fighting I'd watch UFC. If you let players like D-Wade get away with plays like that, it not only increases the risk of injury for players like that, but it also encourages other players to follow suit and further increase the risk of injury by creating a hostile environment.


2. It highlights the favoritism in the league and ruins its reputation. When we see a member of the Bulls shove LBJ to the ground and get suspended, we expect that when a member of the Heat shoves an member of the Bulls to the ground that they too will be suspended. When this doesn't happen (Wade shoving Rip), then people see the blatant favoritism and the integrity of the game is diluted. This is bad for the game because it will turn people off to the NBA brand of basketball and encourage people to turn to college hoops and the like.


So yeah... it hurts the league.

Playing rough and taking a cheap shot at a dude with his head turned is not the same thing.

Regardless, people are just upset because Miami are the league's little darlings and the verdict of the review of the elbow would more than likely have been different if the guilty party was a member of a team that didn't factor as heavily in the NBA's money making plans.

I think the fact that very few players (especially compared to the past) have even average fundamentals when they enter the league, I think percentage of guys today enter the league with a lower basketball IQ and don't understand of how to really play the game. That is worse then anything Wade does.

I also want to add look at the Ewing/Oakly Knicks and then look at what the Isiah Detroit team was like. Your talking about aggression and using your body to make space and intimidate. When done right its fun to watch and highly effective.

a ton of the difference of opinions come from age here, and in general. I started watching the NBA in 84', and there is usually a difference in perspective (not saying right or wrong, just different) between myself, and a fan who is around 20 years old. However, when it comes down to it, age doesn't determine basketball knowledge. Basketball knowledge determines itself.

Obviously, one player's actions cannot endanger a business like the NBA, unless he came out with evidence that the NBA was rigged. However, it is becoming fairly evident that Wade gets calls, I mean I don't think that anyone can argue that he should have been ejected for pushing Rip. I just wish the NBA would stop catering to the superstars. I even hate when my superstar Rose gets calls these days. It frustrates you watching the integrity of the game being ignored.

I can agree with that. I think Wade is a fabulous player and his style of play is admirable. However, other actions on the court I would not like to see. I feel like if every superstar was like Wade, the superstar treatment would get out of control. I am not a Heat hater either. I just feel like Wade gets the most calls in the NBA.

Harden is the master dude, I can't watch too much of him without getting pissed. He just sails into the lane, finds an arm, and flails straight upward. Funny thing is, while its a total flop, he still controls the ball and finishes. I mean, stars get calls. Always have. That will never change. And they KNOW this, so they sell any potential call to get it. Won't ever change.

Neither Wade's push on Rip or his elbow on Stephenson warranted flagrant fouls or even technical on the court, if I am correct. LeBron got two technical calls against the Bulls for doing way less.

Neither Wade's push on Rip or his elbow on Stephenson warranted flagrant fouls or even technical on the court, if I am correct. LeBron got two technical calls against the Bulls for doing way less.

oh so your just talking about calls involving techs/flagrants etc...i'd agree then.

true for the bulls series, but what about the last 2 years? if he can just flail and get a call whenever he wants like the guy was basically saying then he'd have more then he's been getting recently no matter what.

Oh, no doubt Wade mastered how to sell a foul, but to act like he isn't a player who FORCES a whistle because he drove straight down the pipe during his career is just not accurate. Every star gets calls, but lets not act like Wade hasn't drawn a TON of fouls in his career, legit ones at that.

Him flailing his arms and legs, the elbows, breaking people's noses, giving them concussions, kicking them in the nuts, flopping like a fish, falling down on every single play (whether it be on offense or defense) which could lead to people tripping over him or him falling to sell a call and accidentally falling into someone's knees.

The league should really take a closer look at Wade's extracurricular motions and at least address the players in general about it.

Not to mention his leg-chop on Kidd while he was shooting a 3 during Game 5 of 2011 Finals.

Yes, I remember. Wade one of the dirtiest players in the NBA. It's only his fanboys who cover it up for him and try to make him look like a saint.

I mean, I can take a flopper like his team mate but the trying to injure someone thing? Oh come on, players are making a livelihood out of playing thats where they feed their families, pay bills and other stuff.

I like how Kobe fanboys like to talk down Wade as a Dirty player. Makes me wonder how long they've been actually watching Kobe for. He has been throwing elbows his whole career. He just didn't always get away with it that's why he got into little altercations with players like Chris Childs and Raja Bell but the Kobe homers don't remember that though smh.

+1. It's as if they don't remember him being suspended a couple times in 08 for his elbows also. Now I've been on this forum a long time and I know all laker fans are not like some on this thread. Some are actually educated on the game. While some on this thread spew dumb ****.

It's bad for the league for two reasons:

1. Dirty plays lead to injuries. The league should be, like all other work places, concerned with safety first. That may sound lame, but when people in the work place are doing things to intentionally hurt other people, then that creates an unsafe work environment. The league has done a great job of cracking down on this sort of thing and making the game safer for the players which is great. It is perhaps unfair to compare the NBA to a typical work place. Injuries are expected and it is a high competitive and emotive environment, so while acts of violence don't all deserve 'termination' as they would in a typical work place, they do need to be addressed and reduced. In the 90's there were so many more fights. I don't watch basketball to watch fights, I watch basketball to watch basketball. Hockey, for example, to me, is an inferior sport. Any sport that needs to include fighting to make it entertaining is lacking something. If I wanted to watch fighting I'd watch UFC. If you let players like D-Wade get away with plays like that, it not only increases the risk of injury for players like that, but it also encourages other players to follow suit and further increase the risk of injury by creating a hostile environment.


2. It highlights the favoritism in the league and ruins its reputation. When we see a member of the Bulls shove LBJ to the ground and get suspended, we expect that when a member of the Heat shoves an member of the Bulls to the ground that they too will be suspended. When this doesn't happen (Wade shoving Rip), then people see the blatant favoritism and the integrity of the game is diluted. This is bad for the game because it will turn people off to the NBA brand of basketball and encourage people to turn to college hoops and the like.


So yeah... it hurts the league.

I agree it hurts the league to a certain degree, but everything is overblown right now because of the playoffs. With Wade in particular, he pulls dirty plays but he also toes the line well enough that it's tough to tell whether it's intentionally dirty or not. This just seems like a topic that shouldn't seriously be addressed in the immediate future to me, at the earliest later this offseason until it's been given a chance to be thoroughly looked at.


The Heat are what's wrong with todays Nba.

Same ****, different day for Illusionist


What's up with the NBA forum lately? All I see is people crying and whining.. it's getting ridiculous now.

Once the playoffs are over, this will cool down to a certain degree... It always does. This stuff is cyclical for the most part.
