Dwayne Wade's shot on Ramon Sessions.

8 posts in this topic

If you haven't seen this, check out ESPN or YouTube it, I don't think I can put a link up here. But I was wondering what people thought about it and the one game suspension. Personally, I am glad to see the NBA do this, he has been making quite a few cheap shots the last year or so and gotten away with it. It also looked pretty blatant to me as a reaction to the foul. He stopped dribbling the ball and did it after the whistle was blown. As always though, in the game he didn't receive a foul, but the NBA, IMO, did the right thing with the suspension.

I also was curious if this changes people's opinions on Wade. Going into the Heat's superteam Lebron was the clear villian, but over the last season Wade has overtaken him for that role, mainly due to all of the cheap shots. Speaking of Lebron, even he has a wth look on his face after seeing his teamate's actions.

I can't stand Wade.  In fact, I can't stand that whole Miami team.  None of those guys are good leaders.

Thats why in the NBA "teams" are not non existent anymore.  its a one man show each possession.   Why is it that college ball is good fundamentals(for the most part) then if they get to the NBA its ME, ME, ME.

I think basketball is a more selfish game than football inherently.  On any night, you will see all the players on the stat sheet.  However, you will never see stats for an offensive lineman making a good block for a RB.  Furthermore, players know that they are dependent on one another.  The QB can't have any passing stats if his line doesn't block and his WRs don't catch the ball.

    • 2015-2016 Indiana Pacers (And rest of the NBA) Season
      OKC looks like they'll win in 5 or 6.  They did beat the Warriors at home once this series, so they are fully capable of it.  And they've dominated Golden State in OKC.  If Draymond isn't suspended for game 5 because of tripping Kanter, I think Golden State wins game 5 at home.  But I don't see OKC losing at home in game 6, assuming it even gets that far.  Golden State just looks completely exhausted, as I thought they would.  The grind of pushing for 73 wins is incredibly taxing.
    • Possible 4th WR Candidate....
      Could be but I still don't think paying $885,000. for a 4th receiver is worth it.
    • Add 2 players to the Colts- 1 on offense and 1 on defense
      If you could hand select 2 players from any team in the league,  tuitt would be 1 of your 2?   You must be a bigger ND homer than I am

      I didn't realize Anthrop was as fast as he was:   In front of representatives from 23 NFL teams and two Canadian Football League teams, Anthrop ran a 4.40 electronically timed 40-yard dash and didn't drop any passes on Tuesday. The 6-foot, 193-pound receiver backed up an eye-opening performance in the East-West Shrine Game.   Anthrop said his agent heard that he was expected to run in the 4.5-4.6 range. The former two-time state medalist in the 100-meter dash easily outperformed that projection on Tuesday, with some hand timings putting him as low as 4.37. Only eight players ran sub-4.4 40s at last month's NFL Scouting Combine, and only one was a receiver. http://www.jconline.com/story/sports/college/purdue/football/2016/03/23/purdues-anthrop-proves-self-pro-day/82139432/     If he shows anything in camp and the preseason he'll probably take over that Griff Whalen role if not more with his speed.  I'll be interested to see if he's able to do anything.
    • The Trouble With Andrew Luck
      It is still mind boggling to think in the 55 Regular Season games that Andrew Luck has played the Colts have only had 1 game where a RB went over 100 Yards. In the 6 Playoff games Andrew has played the Colts have had 0. In 61 games, Andrew still is 38-23 as a starter despite that shocking fact.

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
