Dwyane Wade: ‘First Time I Got Dunked on All Year’

DWade took the spectacular Taj Gibson facial dunk in stride, claiming it’s the first time he’d gotten yammed on this season, and certainly not the last time it’ll happen in his career either. The Tribune has the quotes: “First time I got dunked on all year,’ said Wade. ‘I’ll take my 90-to-1 (ratio) of my blocks and my dunks (upon). He really got pumped, it was good.’ Gibson levitated over Wade and slammed home a two-hand jam as he was being fouled. ‘It was a very athletic play,’ said Wade. ‘I knew I didn’t have a chance when I started back-pedaling when I saw him take off. It won’t be the last time I get dunked on.’”

    I could watch Dwyane Wade get dunked on all day.

    You didn’t get dunked on Dwyane Wade, you got “mounted” >> http://clicky.me/TajGibson .. Does Gabrielle Union know about this? Prolly best you tell her before she hears it from somebody else.

    if you knew you didn’t have a chance, why jump?

    I seem to recall someone on the Sixers yamming on Wade last year, and he made it a point to get him back 3-4 times in the same game. Keep your head up Taj…

    @chiqo Playoffs BABY! No easy points.

  • Riggs

    90 to 1?

  • Mike From Spain

    Wade did not downplay it, but what he said was also reality: dudes get dunked on, won’t be the last time, he does it more than people do it to him… it’s all good

    Is this the real life life? Is this just fantasy?

  • http://www.nba.com/celtics lightsout

    of course he does it more than people do it to him–how often do guards get dunked on? look Wade, you got posterized, and that’s that. nobody cares that it hasn’t happened to you this year until now. ass.

    lol u guys take this more serious than the players themselves. CALM DOWN!!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Max

    JJ hickson also dunked on Dwade..
    Btw; guess whick picture I have on my background. :D

  • http://www.hoopsvibe.com/features/overdribbling chiqo

    @bigl: didn’t seem that much harder. just more embarrassing and a waste of a foul.

  • http://slamonline.com 1982

    @Chiqo because this is basketball?

  • http://slam miami heats luver!!

    woww not really nothing but watch them heats go to the playoffs though!!!……

  • http://slamonline.com 1982

    I didn’t mean that the way it sounded. This is basketball, and you’re supposed to always play D. That was a monster dunk, but Taj isn’t Blake. You still jump.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Max

    @1982, Ibaka can jump if Blake is coming trough.

  • http://slamonline.com 1982

    @Max good call. Maybe just don’t jump at Blake if you’re 6’4″ and under… With Taj, Wade was caught up on a 3 on 1 and went for it. The rest will be on slamadamonth.

  • robb

    @chiqo because Wade’s a true competitor.

    Click my name for the evidence.


    Mayb if u had joined the Bulls, Taj wouldn’t have had 2 do that 2 u Dwyane.

  • All Day

    If you play the game long enough, eventually you will get dunked on…you dunk on cats and cats dunk on you…it’s a rite of passage for ballers.

  • http://www.bulls.com Rigo Gonzalez

    Everyone gets dunked on. Jordan got dunked on. Kobe got dunked on. Despite what Phil Knight’s goons might have you believe, LeBron’s been dunked on.
    This dunk would’ve been just as nasty if it was on anyone else besides Wade.

  • Remo Williams

    best dunk of the year

  • http://www.hoopsvibe.com/features/overdribbling chiqo

    if jumping at a guy when you have no chance of blocking it or fouling him hard enough to prevent the bucket makes you a true competitor, then so be it.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Who was the guy who dunked on LeBron, was taped doing it, and then had the tape confiscated? Was it Jordan Crawford–the Washington Wizards Jordan Crawford? I can’t remember…

  • http://www.hoopsvibe.com/features/overdribbling chiqo


  • All Day

    ^Yeah it was Jordan Crawford…he was in college (Xavier) at the time.

  • JL

    i commend wade for trying for the block rather than trying to stand in his path and get a charge.

  • robz


  • Fuzzman

    Wade, you didn’t backpedal. You stepped up and tried to block Gibson – That’s why it was such a massive facial

  • kudos

    Wade: grow up, no one cares about your fantasy of being dunked on only 90-1. We know he’s lying.

  • http://slamonline.com GlobeTrotter

    That dunk better be the Slamadamonth or Slam up!!

  • http://360special.blogspot.com/ dev0

    D-Wade forgot about this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZKZ-KmR5Qw. 90-2? Seriously though, he should have gotten out of the way but I don’t blame him; Wade was second among guards in blocks per game this season with 1.1 bpg, 87 total (Wilson Chandler, sometimes a guard, had 1.3 bpg, 94 total). Wade only trails T-Mac, Vince Carter and Paul Pierce in active guards’ career blocks. All of this is to say, you give and you get. Wade dishes out more than his fare share of posters anyways.

  • jsdon

    J.J. Hickson “yammered” on him hard this year. I forgive him for forgetting though. It was vicious.

  • giogolo

    The fact that it was DWADE who got dunked on makes it a big deal for most people. WHICH SAYS a lot of the person who got dunked on. With that said a warrior can admit to defeat but does not give up on the fight.

    Hey, if it was LeBron, Nike would’ve made sure that any proof/footage of that dunk is *ghost* within minutes.

  • dooog

    you all forgot about his dunk on perkins?

  • Harlem_World

    Imagine if Taj dunks in him again…
