There is no way in David Stern’s world that Udonis Haslem and Dexter Pittman suit up for the Miami Heat in Game 6 Thursday night. Both “gentle” men performed flagrant fouls that warranted ejections last night, though either was forced to leave the game.
The NBA has a way of making everything right….these two will have to sit till Game 7 (yes, there will be one).
I understand Udonis laying out Tyler Hansbrough as payback for his flagrant foul on Dwyane Wade a second earlier. It was old school.
But Dexter Pittman is just another over weight center in the NBA, just another fake thug in the league. His wink and smile after nearly breaking Lance Stephenson’s collar bone were a joke. I hope he doesn’t think this is over…wehere Lance grew up in the NY this kinda thing has a way of coming back to kill you (literally).
Juwan Howard, Mr Fake O.G., sending a younger guy out to do his dirty work in garbage time. You’re a joke Juwan. No one took you seriously as a “rising star” twenty years ago, so why should we take you seriously as an old has-been.
If you ran a tape of Howard’s garbage minutes this season (it wouldn’t take long) you’d see at least 7 or 8 hard fouls bordering on flagrant. This dude is a hypocrite.
Your retirement is overdue Mr. ‘Flab Five’.
