Wade Dunks on Varejao

Every so often, a moment in sports occurs which transcends life and enters the halls of immortality.

During Cleveland's 111-104 victory over the Miami Heat, we bore witness to such a moment.

During the first quarter of the game, Dwyane Wade grabbed a rebound off a LeBron James miss and started on a fast break. The Cavs were in transition defense and everything appeared to be going fine, that is, until Cavaliers forward Anderson Varejao decided to be a hero.

Varejao stepped in front of Wade to contest his shot and...well...

...that happened.

Now I'm not sure what Anderson Varejao said to Wade before the game started, but no one deserves that. Varejao has a family. He has an image. He has...feelings.

Varejao should sue Wade for defamation of character.

Dwyane Wade needs to apologize for taking such reckless actions with the basketball. Such a dunk was irresponsible and the league should put measures in place to prevent such things from happening in the future.

I take that very last bit back, cos i'm sure even Cavs fans would appreciate how good that dunk was.  
It's why we all love to watch basketball!

HAHA  i think you'll find the line from the movie is:
"You would rather look good and lose than look bad and win"
Everybody would rather look good AND win!  Laughing

As for your comment how it's just 2 points.  Yes on the scoreboard it's just 2 points, but thats the kind of play that can lift the whole team. So it didn't turn the game and win it for them this time, but thats mean it wouldn't next time. 

If you can't see that was a brilliant dunk, you either have your eyes closed, or are a cavs fan.

In my opinion that was a very amazing dunk and im trying to figure out if varejao is brave or if he is just stupid 4 steppin in front o D-Wade. I meen really if u c D-Wade goin down the lane full speed getting redy to throw it down why would u step in front of him. Varejao has a really big mouth to and proly talks alot of trash so i think he deserved every little bit of that dunk. Nice dunk D-Wade i thought it was amazing. D-Wade is a BEAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got 3 words for this  BFD.

Congrats D Wade.  It was a "pretty play".  It will make sportscenter plays of the week.  Maybe even a couple of highlight reels.  Lets get real on this play.  It was a dunk.  2 points.  Not a game changing 2 points since the Heat still got spanked in the game, just regular kind of 2 points.  It is worth no more than a 5 foot jumper.  In football terms, this wasn't an 80 yard TD, this was a first down.  It was a pretty one handed catch style first down.  Then again you team punted right afterwards.  I really fail to see why everyone is obsessing about the play that much. 
D Wade can jump.  He had a good angle.  He dunked on Andy V.  BFD

This kind of crap is why i really don't care about the NBA.

Wade is such a stud ball player on a mediocre team. I have always liked Wade's attitude, he gets knocked down and just gets back up and takes it to you. He doesn't run his mouth crying and complaining. Just a hint for you Verejao, Get out of the way next time! That was an instant classic poster facial on you.

I love it! Wade placed the ultimate posterization on the curly haired flop-a-saurus. Even Varejao didn't have to fake a fall on this one...
