We lost patience a while back with Gregg Doyel, so we really don't read his column very often anymore, primarily because he's a bully.
We heard his column slamming Dywane Wade partly read on Mike & Mike Tuesday morning, and something just jumped out at us. It has before, but it was different when someone actually reads it: the guy refers to himself incessantly.
In the Wade column, he did it sixteen or seventeen times. Check it out:
- Someone has to say it, so I'll be the bad guy.
- And that's how I'll say it:
- And I say that as a guy who fell (back) in love with Wade last season, during the 2012 NBA Finals, when Wade's family went through some trauma and Wade was reunited with his sons before Game 4 and he was hugging them courtside and I was getting goosebumps -- getting goosebumps, right now, thinking about it -- because there's nothing more beautiful or pure or likeable than a parent's love for his/her children.
- Dirtiest player in the NBA? I think that goes without saying.
- Did I mention the forearm shiver to Lance Stephenson's head yet?
- I'm not suggesting the referees would affect the outcome, but I am absolutely suggesting the NBA didn't suspend Dwyane Wade for smashing Lance Stephenson in the head because he plays for Miami, and he plays with LeBron, and the NBA would prefer the Heat reaches the NBA Finals.
- I want a fine.
- The NBA now fines players for flopping, and I want Dwyane Wade fined for that egregious flop on Game 3. I'd like him fined for the two or three flops he does every game, and even Miami Heat fans have to know what I'm talking about.
- I see it and I'm laughing at you, Dwyane Wade, because it's pathetic for a player of your stature and skill to resort to such blatant cheating.
- Someone had to say it, so I'll say it
- And I'm not worried about being the bad guy anymore, because everyone knows who the bad guy is in this story.
Maybe so, but that's not who the story is about.
