Not Now, Dwyane Wade

A lot of people are still thinking about NBA Finals. And who can blame them? Some truly wild shit went down in that series, and it capped off one of the most improbable comebacks in sports history. Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade is also thinking about the Finals ... from 2006:


Here is the full caption:

There’s alot of coverage on the 2006 NBA Finals right now...One because it was the most controversial finals to date and today makes exactly 10 years to the date we won our first ever title as an organization and me as a player. It was one of the greatest moments in my life and probably one of the worst for the Dallas Mavericks. That’s sports... we’ve all had our moments to feel both ways. Now what I’m reading about the series is unfair to me as a basketball player. Did I get some calls that I could have played through YES. We all do...but was I attacking every time I touch the ball...YES. This picture is an example of a play in game 5 that everyone said I didn’t get fouled on. Listen most athlete have never committed a foul but D Harris my guy...this is a foul haa. All in all we did find a way to beat a team that was a much better team then us that season...but they got their payback in 2011 as a franchise so in my mind it’s a wash..but iam proud to take a look back at these moments and say I had a hand in us winning our first ever championship.

Hey, Dwyane? First of all, nobody is talking about the 2006 NBA Finals right now. We’re still busy processing the fact that LeBron James turned into an archangel to smote Andre Iguodala’s layup. We’re a little hung up on Kyrie Irving deciding he’s the dude who should be pulling up for the game-winning three, and being precisely right. We’re still pretty goddamn hype about Kevin Love trapping lightning in a bottle and then swallowing the bottle.

Nobody wants a “gotta hear both sides” lecture about the series in which you could have jammed a fork into Dirk Nowitzki’s eye and still gotten free throws, Dwyane. Go do something else!
