Dwyane Wade's foul on Darren Collison will not be upgraded, no further action

By Matt Moore | NBA writer
A league spokesman Wednesday morning told CBSSports.com that the league has reviewed Dwyane Wade's flagrant foul on Darren Collison during the Heat's Game 2 loss to Indiana Tuesday night, and will not upgrade the foul nor will there be further action taken against Wade.

You have to wonder if this is just superstar treatment, based on the actions taken by Wade. There was no play on the ball, the hit was obviously intentional, and given that both players were running full speed and Wade delivered a forearm shiver to Collison's back, serious injury could have occurred.

Furthermore, the big question this morning comes from those wondering why this foul on Blake Griffin from Jason Smith, which earned Smith a two-game supsension, is any different from Wade's foul. The two are below for comparison.





Hard to argue one is dramatically worse than the other. Nonetheless, Wade will be available for Game 3 in Indiana in what is becoming a significantly testy series.
