Dwyane Wade to Appeal Suspension for Kicking Ramon Sessions in the Groin

According to Dwyane Wade’s agent, Henry Thomas, the one-game suspension (which the Miami Heat were adamantly against) he was slapped with by the NBA will be appealed. Per the Sun-Sentinel: “While Wade was forced to sit out Friday’s loss to the Detroit Pistons, with that part of the sanction not subject to appeal, Thomas said that Wade would appeal the lost wages, which are in excess of $150,000 for the missed game. ‘We are doing it on the basis that I don’t think the suspension was warranted,’ Thomas said. Thomas said the decision to appeal was made in consultation with Wade. ‘He felt that it wasn’t warranted,’ Thomas said. ‘I saw the play and I just don’t think that it was.’ Thomas is hopeful of a return of the lost wages. ‘Absolutely,’ he said. ‘The players’ association will file the appeal. The money will go in escrow and then when the hearing’s held, it’s held.’ Such reviews can take weeks or even months. Such fines or lost wages often are quietly returned to the players upon appeal.”

  • What a joke. Wade says that the leg kick was a result of the contact that was made by Sessions wich is bullshit…

  • The Philosopher

    Wade is gully.

  • shockexchange

    Dwyane Wade goes all “Ric Flair” on Sessions and then pleads his case to the league? (Ric Flair voice) “Wooo Daadddyyy!”

  • The Philosopher

    Shout out to Ric Flair…
    The KING… of North Carolina.

    Throw the book at this ni66a with his wack kicks

  • Bubbles

    Wade is the dirtiest player in the league. He deserves a bigger suspension.

  • shockexchange

    D. Wade even has a beautiful girlfriend just like “Baby Doll.” http://clicky.me/RicFlair … Wonder if he walks around the streets with $10,000 robes on too?

  • young the block

    This is some sucker sh*t on his part. We all seen it, he clearly kicked him in the balls.

  • https://twitter.com/jasontichenor Mr. Wet

    you accidently typed wade instead of Kevin Garnett

  • The Philosopher

    shockexchange is too cool… lol

  • Stephen A. Smith

    What a greedy SOB, clearly intentionally kicked him.

  • Dwayne Wayne

    I agree that Wade is the dirtiest player in the league. He broke Kobe’s nose in an all-star game for no reason whatsoever. Wade is just appealing his suspension cuz he wants his money. This is the guy who was saying that players should get paid to play in the Olympics. He’s just mad that the Miami Heat is Lebron’s team now.

  • Perry the PlatyPteranodon

    I’d like Wade more if every time he talked, he didn’t sound like a total douchebag.

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    My guess is that the dirtiest player in the league isn’t a star. Probably a bench player who gets inserted into games to foul superstar players like Wade pretty hard. We see all of the superstars/stars dirty plays because of how much they are thrown across our TVs. The more appropriate thing to say would be Wade is the dirtiest superstar/star player in the league.

    As a native of North Carolina, the King of North Carolina is a guy from Wilmington, NC by the name of Michael Jordan.

  • The Mauve Avenger

    I believe it’s spelled Ron Artest.

  • shockexchange

    Does his woman look as good as Baby Doll?

    I really, really dislike Wade, in just about every way…but I must admit, he is a good father

    LOL this was nothing compared to Nicolas Batum in the olympics…that sh*t was wild

  • Lloyd

    If the league returns his wages, it’s setting a precedent that dirty plays only warrant a slap on the wrist. 150k is change to him regardless, but if the league returns it it would almost be acknowledging that they were incorrect to penalize him. The importance of the amount is little, but the decision to uphold or withdraw the punishment will send a loud message, whether negative or positive, to the players and fans. Hope the NBA does the right thing

  • Raheem Shabazz

    *Metta World Peace. Fixed that for you.

  • robb

    I don’t know if he’s the dirtiest but he certainly is the most hypocritical.

  • bringbackthesonics

    how can he appeal the suspension, if anything he should be relieved that he didn’t get suspended for longer

    i never saw KG kick somebodys balls, break nose, dislocate somebodys shoulder. i agree with bubbles.

  • Kiki

    Wade is the dirtiest player in the league.

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    I take it you’re also a native of NC. Because if not, your opinion means absolutely nothing. He’s widely regarded as the best player to ever play in the NBA. He’s easily one of NC’s best representatives.

  • ByAnyMeansNecessary

    You meant to say he’s the dirtiest star player in the league.

  • https://twitter.com/jasontichenor Mr. Wet

    here”s him punching channing frye in the balls, Then it doesn’t show the first time. But two back to back threes he sticks his foot under frye as he’s coming down from a three. Easy way to sprain his ankle. I watched this game live, and it’s the reason I’ve hated garnett since.

  • shockexchange

    But does his woman look as good as Baby Doll?

    You’re so stupid to think wade broke his nose on purpose. it was not on purpose. kobe’s head went down while wades hand went up boom, simple mistake that hasnt happened again. The fall with Rondo was just both players losing balance and falling. If you fall you’re not just going to go straight down on the ground specially if you’re sprinting. Natural Instinct is to save your self and grab on to something. He is not mad, cause he has admitted that he wanted Lebron to take over the team. Do you remember that wade was the only one in the draft class Bron, Melo and Bosh came out of to get a ring first. By himself with a well aged Shaq. When you have a job and you don’t get paid like the contract say’s. You will be demanding your money. no matter how much.

  • lawrencewilley49@yahoo.com

    Wade is a dirty player and should have been out a week of games. Kobe’s nose, Rhondo’s shoulder and now this.

  • k

    that’s b/c you just started watching the nba. here’s some hints,,,, andrew bynum??? heat/indiana series??? & yes KG is the dirtiest player in the nba

    Wade made a move worse than Suh ever did and deserved a month suspension. The trouble is , the Commish won’t do anything to the Heat because they are a show right now,they can do what ever they want,they are abovr the law Wade is a punk for what he did,someone should take him out on a drive to the basket,he won’t have anyone he won’t have anyone defend him..

    Hew never tried to intentionally injure a player like wade did to Rondo. Wade know he tried to kick him in the balls, dirtiest player in the league….

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Sam-Perez/18716155 Sam Perez

    Either Sessions has a vagina or he didnt get hit the nuts… he got right back up. I would like to see how any of react after you get kick in the nuts by a word class athlete, bet you wouldnt get right back up like sessions did… HE should get fined for flopping

  • niroby

    Wade like Reed of Ravens believe they are exempt from any discipline due to their “star” status…

  • Gman

    Your comments just made me laugh so hard, good jokes man.

  • Gman

    lol does anyone actually play ball here? tell me you never attacked the bucket like that, got pushed, and tried to regain balance…by doing exactly what Wade did.

  • Gregory Davis

    OK! come to think of it seem like wade did hurt Rondo intentionally, But Wade never intended to kick Sessions. This was all reflexes of being fouled buy him and hie was off balance an his leg accidentally risen up inadvertenly making it seem as a intentional kick. And wade had learned his lesson from his kids and wife. That he would never Play dirty as long as his kids are watching him so that they won’t follow bad habits in basketball. Most definitely Wade wants his sons to play Basketball in an Honest safe way. So all the H8ERS can just STOP IT ! RIGHT NOW! DOT COM.

  • Gregory Davis

    And Just one Thing. If you closely at the tape, Sessions “FLOPS” when wade’s leg inadvertently rises up. Watch the tape closely and H8Ting on Wade. But Even though I’m a Knick fan 100% and Dislike the HEAT. Because Knicks are going to take it all in 2013. YES! GO KNICKS!
