I love the NBA, but I absolutely hate the terrible officiating and the players that know how to play the system (to get the calls). Which player, do you hate the most in the NBA--and why?
For me, it is hands down DWYANE WADE. This guy forces the contact (bangs into the defender, on purpose, and then falls on his ass as he hits the shot--because he has practiced this "bang and flop" play a million times).
Just as bad, is when DWYANE WADE makes a somewhat crucial shot, and he leaves his arm up in the air so that the multitude of game photographers can capture this "historic" (in Wade's mind) moment. Think of the way Michael Jordan kept his arm up after hitting the Finals shot versus Utah--the shot that everyone believed would be the final shot that Jordan ever made in the NBA.
Well, DWYANE WADE does this EVERY SINGLE TIME that he makes a crucial shot (AGAIN--in his mind). It is absolutely sickening. WADE even did this in the recent All-Star game.
The referees are too blame, because they continue to let players like Wade (and LeBron, and Billups, etc.) run into defenders and then flop.
The Miami Heat beat the Dallas Mavericks strictly because Stern wanted Miami to win (Wade and Shaq) were more marketable than Dirk) and Stern instructed the refs to call all those bang and flop calls for Wade.
Wade is the most narcissistic player in the NBA, and I hate him.
