Rajon Rondo Calls Dwyane Wade a Dirty Player (VIDEO)

The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat don’t like each other at all. We got a reminder of that this week, as Rajon Rondo and Dwyane Wade re-acquainted themselves with one another. After getting called out by Wade for making a “punk play”, Rondo fired back today when speaking to reporters (clip above via WEEI): “I mean, I don’t think it was a hard foul,’ said Rondo. ‘[Wade] sold it a little bit, and that’s basketball. They were up, he drove to the hole, I didn’t want to give up a layup. Simple as that. I didn’t yank him down, or dirty plays that you’ve seen him play in the past. So that’s what it is.’”

    Wade is a dirty player. Rondo did the right thing.

  • Jay Cutler

    At this point media people are just pushing and prodding and probing for soundbites. And that includes SLAM.

    I don’t think Wade is a “dirty player” but I do believe he isn’t as innocent as he’s made out to be. He whines and probably takes his petty shots out on othre players occassionally but to label him an all around dirty player is unfair IMO.

    Here we go again…..

    I agree. Rondo didn’t say “Wade is a dirty player”. That’s the media for you I guess.

  • elmaar

    he just said everything most of us already agreed on.

  • elmaar

    he is, he became one like during the past two seasons.

  • roscoe

    the 80s called & said stop being soft.

  • http://www.reverbnation.com/savagemuzicgroup T-Ray

    Well like I said it’s just my opinion so if you think he is then that’s great.

  • elmaar

    to tell you the truth I’m not so much against cheap shots, cos I understand they might be delivered in the heat of the battle.
    wade has just become full of bullsh1t.

    I agree with you that I don’t mind them in the moments of a heated contest. I do believe Wade had adopted a bitchy attitude the last 3-4 years as far as I’ve noticed. My thing is I wouldn’t label him dirty.

    I would punch all these reporters who wants to create controversy. I would not reflect too much about it. It is a game of basketball after all.

  • Jay Cutler

    Seriously. They hounded dude for 5 minutes to get him to say something negative and he wasn’t biting.

  • Wade Hater

    I’m not trying to bring up Kobe unnecessarily, but the only difference between this play and the one where Wade (flagrant) foul in the All-Star game, is that Kobe got his nose broken. Wade is a mark a$$ dude

  • Coca Scola

    What about Wade’s foul on Kobe (broken nose) in the All-Star game last year ?

    How stupid the guy who was asking the first question. He was asking a way to provoke Rondo. Rondo if Wade is a dirty player, then there is no word to explain how KG plays and you play. Come on!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XFBVQWRKG6LDESHUTIK2MCKOOY Troy M

    I hate the first guy who was trying to provoke Rondo. If I were Rondo, I would not talk to that moron at all.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XFBVQWRKG6LDESHUTIK2MCKOOY Troy M

    Wade Dirty player.. Come on! You can not even give me any hard foul he made on purpose. There are a few dirty players in NBA and now 2 of them are in Boston, KG, and Jason..

  • yeee

    rondos not a dirty player. But that move, even in football, would be considered a dirty play.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_XFBVQWRKG6LDESHUTIK2MCKOOY Troy M

    Watch it in slow motion to see Hamilton’s Elbow first..

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Brad Miller’s forehead is in a corner somewhere sobbing and laughing at the same time…

  • errday

    Miller just has one of those faces … just can’t not take a swing.

    Dude accused Wade of making dirty plays. Dirty plays are made by dirty players. Therefore Rondo is accusing Wade of being a dirty player. It doesn’t have to be spelled out. On a separate note, love the fire in a rivalry! Too much friendly competition around.

  • Brownjesus

    And that it was a freaking All Star game…

    Ok if people wanna agree with wade that rondo is dirty, thats bs. I agree that is was a hard frustration foul, but dont forget rondo and wade have a history..a dirty player is someone that goes and does plays like that to EVERYbody..Rondo doesnt do that. he only did a play like this to wade because they have static. but I can pull up numerous videos of wade doing plays like that to other players..so honestly, Whos really Dirty????

  • Max

    So, Wade aint dirty, but he became a b*tch.
    Just like my opinion lol

  • http://twitter.com/tweedstereo iain

    Yea, Wade definitely didn’t pull a leg sweep takedown on Rondo a couple years ago in the Playoffs. Grow a brain man.

  • lososway

    dirty player or not, I think we can all agree that Wade is a b*tch

  • Clos1881

    What about when he did that leg sweep that dislocated rondos elbow?

  • bigboy

    Not a dirty plAyer???? Didnt he break kobes nose in a meaningless NBA all star game???
