Dwyane Wade’s Ankle Injury Not Considered Serious

DWade assured the fans and media that the twisted ankle suffered during last night’s All-Star Game was no big deal, and that he’d have been back in there had it been a meaningful game. From the Palm Beach Post: “Dwyane Wade won the MVP award in the 2010 All-Star Game in Dallas. His night in Los Angeles didn’t go nearly as well. He had his pocket picked twice by Kobe Bryant in the first half and, in the second, turned the ankle that has bothered him since first turning it in Boston last Sunday. So he left with 14 points and four rebounds. But he said it wasn’t serious. ‘It’s the same thing I did in Boston, and I finished the game,’ Wade said. ‘You know, it’s the All-Star Game. I didn’t want to push it, and I knew Pat Riley and Micky Arison didn’t want me to neither.’ Especially when they’re in the building? ‘Especially when they’re in the building,’ Wade said.”

    Instead of fighting for the MVP, he mailed it in ‘injured’.

    What he meant to say was, “Especially when they are in the building”

    What he meant was if it was not for the ankle injury, he would have been trying his hardest to get that 2nd MVP in a row and he would have tried his hardest trying not to seem like he was trying so very hard. These are trying times, gentlemen!

    Kobe showed him up at the ASG big time,and Dwayne had a hard time with Kobe D/competitiveness and got showed up. Dwayne packed it in and had an easy bail out excuse, he just didnt make impact last night and it showed. Miami need to really put the efforts into feeding Lebron as he is their true leader what a display he put on last night. LBJ is in Playoff Mode

    Kobe played great and was entertaining and was a well deserved MVP, if the EAST won Lebron Definitely would have won the MVP. i wish he would take initiative on shooting the last shot of the game.
