Dwyane Wade Disses Mike Bibby

Prior to tonight’s Game 5 between New York and Miami, Dwyane Wade playfully took a dig at Mike Bibby’s declining basketball skills (Wade just hasn’t been very kind to Bibby during this first round series.) Per the Sun-Sentinel: “When asked about Bibby Wednesday, Wade decided to take a verbal jab at his former teammate. ‘We know Mike has made more shots in this series than he made all last year (with the Heat),’ Wade said. ‘Send that to Mike.’ Bibby will start in place of injured point guard Baron Davis for the New York Knicks in Game 5 of their first-round playoff series. Bibby is 5 of 13 from 3-point range during the series, including hitting the go-ahead basket late in the fourth quarter of the Knicks’ Game 4 victory Sunday at Madison Square Garden. Last year Bibby struggled during the Heat’s run to the NBA Finals, shooting just 25 percent (17 of 66) from 3-point range. He and Wade were first linked in the series-opener. When Bibby lost his one shoe in the backcourt during the second quarter, Wade picked it up and tossed it out bounds while play was still going. The Knicks still scored on other end, but Bibby glared at Wade after the incident. ‘I’d never done that before, but it was fun,’ Wade said after the game. ‘I love messing with Mike, with Bibbs.’”

    Usually I would find him to be a jerk but this is hilarious since I dislike the Knicks.

  • d_wade

    im a dwade fan but this time im disappointed with his words. i think he should respect mike

  • AsadSaleh3

    I’d call this the truth.

    Sounds like a joke between friends.

  • abaci

    oh snap!!!

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    D-Wade could be a D-Wad, or maybe it’s friendly banter…

  • AsadSaleh3

    Just saw the clip on SportsCenter. Definitely a joke between friends.

    “Wade said after the game. ‘I love messing with Mike, with Bibbs.’”

    It amazes me how people take SLAMS hyperbolic titles as fact and not even bother reading the article. It explains a lot about the commenters on this site.

  • KarimdaDon

    Dwayne wade acts like he has 6 rings or something. You aint Jordan, so get off your high horse.

  • AT33

    I love DWade man, he’s in my eyes the best basketball player in the world right now. Thats right better than Kobe and better than LeBron! And I think he’s been the best almost from the beginning he entered the NBA! I remember when Shaq transferred there while DWade was in his only second year and Shaq used to say this is DWade’s team cuz he knew DWade was insane even though Shaq never said that about Kobe. DWade has that same killer instinct only Jordan and Kobe have that can score anytime at will no matter the situation, and what elevates DWade closer to Jordan is that his game makes everyone around him better on the team while Kobe’s game does not really help everybody else that much.

    “We know Mike has made more shots in this series than he made all last year (with the Heat)” Exactly what I was thinking during Game 4. I hate “Bibbs”

  • Ldub

    @AT33…Shaq said that because he was out of his prime. He was in his prime with Kobe and they both wanted the spot light. Trust and believe it would have beena similar scenario if Shaq was still as beast as he was in ORL and LA!

    as far as Wade’s comment…its nothing but jokes. As you can clearly tell by the very last sentence of the interview. People being disappointed and bothered clearly dont see this for what it is. JOKES! If you dont enjoy your job/profession…then you should switch it up. Im sure Dwade loves his job and if you have any sense of humor in you…you would find this funny.

    bib by low-key is one of the main reasons the heat lost that title… You put mario chalmers out there instead(who was suffocating Barea) and you get a different champ.

  • AsadSaleh3

    LeBron still shoulders most of the blame for not being aggressive at all. Regardless of who else was out there with LeBron, Wade and Bosh whether it was Bibby or Chalmers, if dude had played like himself, the Heat would have won in 6.

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

    definitely a joke, relax sons and daughters. Also Wade’s toss of Bibby’s shoe was hilarious. It was obviously a joke, otherwise he could have tossed that thing much farther. Like when Artest did it to Ariza.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    this is a joke. we know that right?
    Kid, come on i like your opinion, but you can’t honestly try and say Bibby is one of the main reasons they didn’t win a title. If you don’t have a cherry on your ice cream is your ice cream no good? All Mike Bibby was to the Heat last year was a novelty. Not a necessity.

  • RunNGun

    Just wait until D-WADE gets old… the next guy will be like, you old mang… and was always overrated.

  • http://www.crappyrappers.com Simon Caine

    D-Wade isn’t even a top 100 player of all time.

  • tomtom

    This is obv a joke…But off topic, nobody seems to remember just how good Bibby was. As a Lakers fan i remember all to well, love his game.

  • lakernation

    Knicks win tonight in a close game and heads back to New York with Momentum….. BOOK IT!

  • ash

    I was thinking the same thing game 4 Bibby hit more 3s with Knicks then the Heat. Lol

  • @boweezy24

    Bibby Will Make a couple Shots, Stoudemire Will Have About 20, Melo Around 30, Knicks Win!

  • izzo

    yeah right boweezy24 then you woke up homie

  • http://SLAMONLINE.COM Gab

    I Love D-Wade. Funny thing is that its true, Bibby was bricking shots left and right last year with the Heat.

  • http://slamonline.com Datkid

    ok not the MAIN reason. but he was A REASON, even though there are a million others.

  • l2ising Phoenix

    Yellow journalism.

  • Smitty

    Him and Bibby are friends and they rag on each other all the time. This isn’t like Bynum said or anything.

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com albie1kenobi

    the shoe tossing thing was probably the highlight of the playoffs so far. absolutely hilarious.

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    i wonder if Andre Miller would through Blake Griffins shoe in to the stands if they meet in the 2nd round… You know Blake doesn’t want it with Andre Miller after ‘The Bullet’ move.

    slamonline has rejected ma constructive comment.bunch of punks.

  • http://hotmail.com Gangsta

    I said dat dwade iz an arrogant ass these dayz n therefore dont deserve any respect.Post it now or leave it.

  • DerekG

    For those who think Bibby was a reason the Heat didn’t win last year you need to get off it! Dude didn’t even play in Game 5. Lebron averaged like 3 points in the 4th quarter during the finals. He plays at 50% and the Heat walk away with the title easily!

  • Kobester

    Wade likes to throw verbal jabs at his friends. How many times has he joked about Lebron’s age and his hairline?

  • manu

    wade? best player? hahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahaha

    o man im cryin right now…..call me when he can shoot a 3 and draw a real foul

    jesus christ

  • clangclang

    @manu it’s not dwade who joke lebron on his hairline. it was dwight.

  • ron

    Dwayne shows his class

  • Chicago kid

    Dwade and Bibbs are friends and both are team Jordan… It’s all in fun people

  • http://foxnews Frank

    Wade needs to kiss Labron’s rear because he was carried by James. Without Labron, the Heat is just another team and with Allen, they will be a slower team when he is on the floor. Wade has physical issues with the knee and it is not going to get any better. Riley is still a better shot than Wade..

  • Brittany

    maybe it was a joke lol,i really could care less.i think dwade stuck up anyways…smdh
    Now what made me comment was the fact someone actually was comparing dwade “killer insticts” to M.Jordan,wow really, are you serious.hahhahahhhahhahahahahah
    dwade oh puh-lease, he not even that serious u know lol…seems to mean Miami needed lebron, more then him.
    Another thing mike bibby shouldnt have been a factor, if Miami was so good last year, as everyone was claiming. They wouldnt have stop playing like a team, therefore…Dallas won. One person means nothing…others should have stepped up.

  • http://blog moe

    Everybody can stop hating on Dwade bcuz he has 2 rings and lbj has one compliments to dwade. So save that chitter chatter on what really matters. Miami heat are world champions and nobody can take that from them

  • 1990Leo

    who cares,dwade isn’t even a top pg nor is he in to top 50 or top 100 players of all time. dwade is washed up.

  • Rashard

    brittany wade has more killer instinct than kd and that instinct equals to kobe and michael jordan

  • Rashard

    and by the way frank the big 3 carried the heat

  • Joe

    Its Lebron so kiss their asses. retard.

  • Tony

    who is this?
