Hello once again athletes!!!
I am back again with another post! This time it is about dirty play in the NBA. Some players have a reputation for being a dirty player. They will call it “being tough” or “asserting themselves”. If it is good defense, it could be considered asserting themselves in the paint, but if it is an unneccessary foul, it is just being dirty. When you here the words “dirty player” referring to the NBA, it is synonymous with Metta World Peace, otherwise known as Ron Artest. Considering he did get suspended for 73 games in ’04, and elbowing my man James harden in the head, I’d say that is a valid argument. Most being tend to omit the fact that Latrell Sprewell was suspended for 68 games for choking, and threatening to kill then coach PJ Carlesimo. The Warriors terminated his contract later on.
Personally, the dirtiest player in the NBA right now, is Dwayne Wade. Just think of all of the uncalled for things Wade has done:
1. Kicked Gerald Henderson in his…. Uhhhh… Man hood.
2. Launched himself at Kevin Garnett for because Garnett put a hard screen on Mike Miller.
3. Dropped the shoulder on Darren Collison on a fastbreak.
4. Elbowed Lance Stephenson in the temple in this year’s ECF.
5. Shoved down Rip Hamilton when he had the ball.
6. Tossed Mike Bibby’s shoe out of bounds, Bibby is a former teammate.
7. Broke Kobe’s nose in the All-star game…. The All-star game!
8. The worst one of them all, throws down Rondo and breaks his elbow.
These are just some reasons Wade is a dirty player. I honestly can’t stand Dwayne Wade. I was busting out laughing when Thabo Sefolosha straight ripped Wade in the backcourt and reverse dunked all over him in Game 3 of last years Finals.
Other prominent dirty players are: Isiah Thomas (really any of the guys from the Bad Boy Pistons), Kendrick Perkins, Derek Fisher, Kevin Garnett, and Reggie Evams.
