u guys are too much sometimes, it was an accident, stupid foul but that was when they were making a bit of a push and actually trying to play some D so he tried to wrap him up and not give him the layup
kobe laughed it off, wade laughed it off..you can try to make them enemies but its not really worth the energy..i don't recall ANYONE (including teammates) checking up on him other than maybe dwight who kinda walked over but kobe didn't even notice him.
and i had to check up on that quote because i know wade and kobe have been cool since olympics 08, and wade is sarcastic as hell much like kobe when he talks..so that KD statement i assumed he was saying it like "this young scorer is gonna be a problem"
anyways...here is the ENTIRE quote which makes him look less salty and more of how he always respects kobe's game (earlier this week said if he couldn't take the last shot he would choose kobe)
“He’s an unbelievable scorer. That record he got, with KD in the league, I don’t know how that’s gonna last. It’s always great playing against him. He’s one of the best of all time. One day I can say, I got the honor of playing against one of the greatest in basketball.”
— Dwyane Wade, on Kobe Bryant
Both teams played hard, God bless and goodnight. Lets move on from this weak drama and myth of bitterness, wade knows damn well he aint no kobe or jordan and aside from maybe 06-07 i highly doubt he disliked him. As for being "jealous" of kobe...if anyone he would be jealous of lebron and melo because they came into the league together and thats who he measures himself up against all the time - but turns out they are all buddies..and kobe is the veteran they all respect equally.
