Our friends at CosbySweaters.com (love the site name) unearth this video of Wade and James having a little fun at Dirk’s expense (at 1:10 mark).
In general making a little fun at someone isn’t a big deal.
But when you are portrayed as “Hollywood As Hell”, you might not want to annoy the Basketball Gods. Especially when Wade is always milking injuries and Lebron is a supreme flopper. The Basketball Gods took their wrath out on D Wade (he got hurt) and Lebron (2 points in the 4th quarter).
Any time you are up against an elimination game it is a big deal, for the Heat the pressure is even higher. If they lose in either Game 6 or 7 this will haunt them for a long time.
For Lebron, false rumors will be the least of his worries if the Mavs win this series.
