Blatant homerism at its finest.

I do not think I have ever seen an athlete will his team to a championship like Dwyane Wade did in 2006.

Why someone would mock him like that is beyond me. DWade is one of the nice guys in sports and a fine player. Show some respect for the man.

Dude falls down and complains after EVERY SINGLE no-call. It gets old quick.

He gets fouled on Wednesday(not hard at all) by Solomon Jones, and starts a skirmish that leads to 4 technicals being called.

And radio announcers ARE homers. They are only broadcasting to home fans, so who cares. Hawks fans love Holman.

Willed his team to a championship? Please. Dallas won that series if it wasn't for all the terrible foul calls.

The dude averaged 34.3 PPG in the '06 finals. Say what you want about terrible foul calls, but it sounds like you just have a problem with Mr. Wade.

The Solomon Jones foul was not hard at all, but Wade was not the one who took it to another level. Jamal Magloire was the one on Miami doing the pushing. Wade was stuck behind ref Dick Bavetta near the crowd.

And are you that suprised a superstar is complaining after a no-call? Happens every game and especially in the playoffs. I don't like it either but its the way the game is.

By the way, Jeff van Gundy just said during the broadcast that Dwyane Wade's run during the '06 finals was the best 4 games he's ever seen in a championship series. So maybe it wasn't all the officiating.

He's a whiner but he has a ring and the latter I would say forfeits the former regardless.

So much pettiness and hyperbole from the Hawks radio guys. Like his last quote about the Heat resorting to thuggery, it wasn't that bad of a play.
