You know the more I think about it..... Josh Smith may have just gave the Heat the push they needed.. Being flashy and funny could come back to bite you in the butt. Sorta starting to feel like what happened in 2006!!!! GO HEAT ! Blackout time!

I hope Haslem knocks Smith in his mouth at the beginning of the game. Haslem getting ejected will be great for us too.

Is this the same Wade that jumped on the scorers table with his hands on his hips after a game? And he's talking about class?! What a joke!

hey,i couldn't agree more on the between the legs shot that josh attempted,may get the heat riled up to pop Atl in the mouth..
everyone in my section,(shouts out to section 103 rows 6-9)all kinda looked around with embarassment..
its not the team that did something thats not classy,it was just 1 guy,and thats j-smoove,(as our p.r.guy an Atlanta radio personality ryan cameron calls him)..
we would have been in awe if he made it,because it was a heck of a try..but,if you think that this is to be some kind of motivation for the heat to go out and try to punch us in the mouth and win game 6,then,d-wade aka mr.gabrielle union,and crew does not need to be in the playoffs then..
2 things i hate about this series..
dwayne wades crying on how he is always fouled..
and the hawks radio play by play man who crys more than mr.wade,i meant mr.union does..
if u would like to understand what i mean,then stream onto, 790 the zone radio in atlanta,and listen to steve hollman,or however u spell his name and listen to him cry,cry,cry like a baby..no whining..just crying..
"And they call a foul on the hawks"..
"Coach woodson is screaming at the refs"..
"And in the game comes mr.hollywood dwayne wade"..
"Look at all the heat fans leaving,don't go,don't leave"!!!
those are just some of the things our play by play man has said when i either had to listen to the game on radio at work,or,when i left the game earlier in the 4th and was listening on my way home..
so,if our play by play guy don't have no respect for u,what makes u think that j-smoove will???
p.s.,we Are so inconsistent,i think we're gonna lose it there later tonite and win it on sunday in Atl..if we win tonite,i'll be so freaking shocked...

one thing is winning a game and doing the show for the fans and another thing is being disrespectful to other players that are even better than you.....let see what happen tonight...GO HEAT

We need to worry about playing better defense and not giving Atlanta opportunities to embarrass us. All this complaining about extracurricular garbage is totally irrelevant to the task at hand. Frankly, we humiliated ourselves more than the Hawks ever could have. Yeah, they behaved kind of bush league, especially Smith, but that doesn't excuse the fact that we put them in a position to do it by playing no perimeter defense and stooping to their level with probably unnecessarily hard fouls.

Before, during AND after the game, it doesn't matter. Wade looked like a fool spewing his juvenile nonsense, "this is my house, My House, MY HOUSE"
Wade is a great player, not a class act, he still needs his HighSchool coach for guidance. That's what can happen growing up without a Father.

you know what I RESPECT less than showboats....

WHINERS!!

these guys are crying about a stupid under the leg shot attempt?

Wade crys and whines all day to the refs, the same refs that send him to the line more than any player in the league.

That is not only classless, its pathetic.

Wade isnt the only player that whines about not getting calls... The whole NBA does, all the players whine about not getting calls, that is why I hate that the leauge tighten the rules. If this were still the 80's or early 90's these cats playin today wouldnt be able to take it!

Yeah ... if you actually watched the game. That was a response to Nate Robinson clowing around all game when the Nicks had a huge lead on the Heat.

Nate Robinson was acting like a clown ... dunking ... laughing ... dancing on the court.

Wade got mad and scored 24 points in the 4th and got the game winning shot at the end of the game.

What Wade did is called an emotional outburst. Saying not to act like a clown in his house.

What Josh Smith did ... was called showboating. During a game ... during a blowout ... you ACT LIKE A PROFESSIONAL and treat the other team with respect.

This is a playoff game and he is supposed to be a professional.

The Heat should pack some "real heat". And pop a cap in the Hawks behinds. All these players act like thugs anyway. So why not do it for real?

There is your answer Wade is a great player, Smith is not nor will ever be considered in the same league as Black Mamba, or the King. And should you get past the Heat you will find out who the King is. J. Smith, JSmooth with be reduced to J Smear on the floor by the King and HIS court....so ATL now YOU know!!!! LOL

Wade can clown around and showboat because Nate Robinson does?

Wade can whine all game because others do it?

What is this, third grade? Stop rationalizing why your guy can be a primadonna.
