Dwyane Wade is developing quite a knack for getting back at those who slight him. Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki became the latest victim after Friday’s practice. Wade was asked about the ESPN interview in which Nowitzki seemed to hint Dallas allowed Wade to slice through its defense rather than Wade doing with his own ability.
Wade said he saw the interview, then remarked, “We’re having a ring ceremony Tuesday and they’re not, so thanks, Dirk.”
So far this off-season Wade has previously referenced Dallas, saying, “I’m tired of talking about my injuries. I’m a complainer right? That’s what Dallas said. I don’t worry about it. They’re tired of hearing about my injuries. Isn’t that what they said?”
And, responding to a question about whether it would be bad for Detroit if it goes to a more perimeter-based, up-tempo offense without Ben Wallace, Wade replied, “I thought that wasn’t said when they were on pace to tie the Bulls’ record and they were doing the same thing. Once teams found out the scheme of what they were doing and attacked that then it became a problem.”
Wade said he saw the interview, then remarked, “We’re having a ring ceremony Tuesday and they’re not, so thanks, Dirk.” OUCH. The Heat should not have won that Championship. It does not make sense . . .
Mavs- Young, quick, athletic group of players
Heat- (Without Wade) Old, washed up, bald, slow men
It was my fault the Heat won, I jinxed the Mavs.

Sorry but when a player averages more FT's in the Finals than Jordan ever got(by a good bit too) it screams reffing and not bad D.
as much as i hate dwade's game, the Mavs are just soft. Their leader is soft and it trickles down to their teammates. One thing i noticed about Dirk is that when things start to go bad its always somebody elses fault. Wade getting free throws= refs, Amare killing the MAvs= blame every1 else, Him yelling in JET's face.
