I've seen this multiple times now...And I don't understand.
For starters, how does 1 series steer your personal
perception of a player? That kinda pusszling to me..
I'm a long time Heat fan, and of course a big Dwyane Wade fan, and Wade did get the benefit of the doubt on alot of calls as I can admit. Game 5 especially.
But It seems that people are annoyed of Wade's foul calls but not nesacarily looking at the events that transpired in the Finals from a rational point of view...
Dwyane Wade with his style of play, very similar to Iverson is going to go the line alot. ALOT. The dude drives to the basket with reckless abandon, relentlessy. That very style of play dicates the judement of calls to be in his favor in alot of instances...
ESPECIALY GIVEN THE RULE CHANGES THAT GREATLY BENEFIT PERIMETER ORIENTED PLAYERS IN TODAYS LEAGUE
The Dallas Mavericks were shooting jumpshots...Point blank, period. That is undebatable(stats support with the Points in the Paint diffrential). They thought they could win the 'Chip shooting jumpshots, and it backfired like a mf'er.
They did not take advatange of the soft tough fouls that were being call in that series, they shot jumpshots..
Why is this so hard to comprehend?
