Nothing wrong with wade. He's just trying to manufacture drama.

"Yes, they insulted us."

A pathetic little spoiled crybaby. Shouldn't he be insulted by his crappy teams play? They got whipped the last 2 games so they're due to play better next game.

I find it hard to see what else he can be expected to do. He's carrying a team that is clearly outmanned, just as he's done all year, managing to get them to the #5 seed. On top of that, he had them in a winning position in this series, up 2 - 1, until his back gave out. If his back had not given out, there's a pretty good chance Miami goes up 3 -1.

Then, he goes out the next game, clearly ailing, then gets his head knocked in on top of that, but still puts up numbers. And if he'd gotten any support-- other than from his center, who also got hurt-- then, he might have had a chance to steal Game 5.

Win or lose in the series or even in Game 6, the Heat won't have been blown out in the series, which some people predicted would happen. I'd say he's given just about everything he has to give, but then again I've watched him so many times dig a little deeper and find a little bit more, so it may turn out that he has yet more to give. And all I'm saying is this thing ain't over yet.

Wade is definitely a drama queen. He has someone helping him get off his seat on the bench for the cameras but his back seemed ok when he tried to block Evans dunk from behind. A guy will a bad back isn't going to make a play like that. When i saw that play i knew Wade's back wasn't nearly as bad as he is making out.

His back was good enough for him to score 17 pts in the 3rd quarter. If he was hurt bad he would be sitting on the sidelines in a suit like Marvin.

Could only stand to watch the first one and a half quarters. What an ugly and terribly officiated game until that point. I mean first when Wade went down and hit his head they didn't even call a blocking foul?! Then the FLAGRANT on a clear play on the ball?! There was absolutely NOTHING unnecessary and/or excessive about that contact. Maybe it's time for Dick Bavetta to retire, he was clearly not in control of the game.

I think we're done. It was a good season, though we need to develop our players and make a few moves.

I didn't agree with one of the calls, but ey, refs can't get everything and that wouldn't really change the result.

That dunk attempt by Josh Smith was classless, and shows his immaturity. No wonder he drives coach Woodson crazy.

No need to make the Miami Heat even more angry. This series will go 7 games.

It will go to game 7 because:

-Miami will not want to be eliminated.
-The Hawks will be missing two starters.
-The Heat have played so poorly the last two games their due for a good game.
-The Heat will win at home and the Hawks suck on the road.

Those are the reasons the series will likely go to 7 games.

The stuff about the dunk attempt is just a bunch of bullshyt. Players can't miracle their shots to go in. Either they take and make them or they don't. It's just another example of Wade trying to make up some drama like he does with milking his so called injuries.

I guarantee that Miami Heat wins this series. Wade is going to come up big at Home. The Heat are fired up, and they will win in 7.

Great Going Josh Smith. You sure did it this time.

You are probably one of those clowns that predicted the Heat in 5.

Hawks seem to have adapted to our original gameplan. They are the far more talented team and now that they are being coached correctly, it shouldn't be too hard for them to take this.

I would love to be proven wrong though.
