DWade Talking Crap About Dirk

After the Heat practiced Thursday at Quicken Loans Arena, Wade was asked if he believes players are ultimately remembered for what they do at the end of games.

Wade, who usually is selective and subtle with his criticisms of opposing players, took the opportunity to take a jab at Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki, who has failed to give the Heat credit for beating the Mavericks in the Finals last season.

''At the end of the day,'' Wade said, ``you're remembered for what you did at the end. . . . I think that's the reason -- Dirk says they gave us the championship last year, but he's the reason they lost the championship, because he wasn't the leader that he's supposed to be in the closing moments. That's because of great defense by us, but also he wasn't assertive enough as a leader's supposed to be.''

What a bastard! Everyday I hate that guy more and more. Whether it is him falling to the floor, him not acknowledging the fact that hes a flopper, dstern bending over for him, and now this. I hate Dwade and if I saw him I would go Kermit Washington on his Rudy Tomjanovich ass.
