Yes, that was exactly what I was thinking. I have nothing against the Heat, I am a Bulls fan and just happened to catch the final quarter of the Sixers-Heat game. Everybody but D. Wade seemed professional at the conclusion of that game, I don't know why he had to run all the way down court and dunk when the game was already sealed. BTW the dunk wasn't even that great....

Preview: I am a sixers fan btw

now on to what I am going to say: Congrats Wade, go do a celebratory dunk, you deserve it. You just beat the somehow .500 sixers in round one of the playoffs and only you could do that. Was your breakfast good?

That was unprofessional of Wade, but while they are celebrating, Shaq is healing and Ray Allen is practicing his 3. I foresee the Heat's lunch giving them some food poisoning.

We have some overly sensitive people here. I think he was more relieved that the series was over , so he happily dunked it. It wasn't like a spiteful dunk towards the Sixers. That was a very good Sixers team and he even said that in his post game interview. He said that the Sixers team got them ready for the Celtics.

Wade did give Collins an extended post game hug and had what looked like a respectful conversation afterwards.

It was low class....I was shocked he did it, Doug Collins face was like "is this ******* serious" and I noticed Wade rushed over to him when the game ended.

Agree that rubbed me the wrong way as well. In live time it looked like he had stopped then ran down and dunked - Not the worst thing I have seen but to end the series (which they were by far the better team) it it left me with a bad taste in my mouth. With three seconds left and the Sixers obviously not going to foul it lacked a bit of character.

Something I rarely say - Go Celtics!

Exactly, it was a low blow and a unprofessional move by Wade.

Anyone of the sixers would have done the same thing if in a similar situation.
