NBA Trash Talk: Ribs and Ruin
Once again, Dwyane Wade is the centre of attention, drawing the basketball world’s focus away from the most dominant ever, the reigning champs, Larry Brown’s misdeeds and the horrible officiating that has characterised this postseason. However, this time he finds himself in the public eye for all the wrong reasons. A particularly hard shot to the ribs left Wade winded and struggling for several minutes before being pulled from the game for on-the-spot medical evaluation. Despite his valiant efforts to return to the fray in the fourth quarter, he was done for the evening, still appearing to be in considerable pain as he left the American Airlines Arena following the win.
