Wade has made himself look like a jealous fool with that foul yesterday. Damm, why so much anger in a All-Star Game??

Kobe came to a rec game all serious and was playing hard etc. which is a general breach of all-star game protocol. Wade didn't appreciate it and gave Kobe a hard foul. Stuff happens.

Didn't Kobe break someone's nose a few years back? What goes around comes around, eh?

Jealous in what regard? Frankly, I've replayed the foul a few times, and to me it just seemed like a good 'playoff' type foul. An oddity in an all-star game to be sure, but not nearly as 'dirty' as it's being made to be.

I'm usually forgiving of aggressive play in any sport, but I found Wade's hard, playoff foul puzzling. As Steve Kerr said, it was completely out of place at an All Star game when the basket is not protected all day long.

Wade does tend to do alot of slapping defensively...

The Lakers and Heat play this weekend, I think maybe Ron Ron Artest will go back to his old ways this weekend. And you may be right, what come around, goes around. And I don't think Kobe is complaining at all about the hard foul, only the media is.
