Spoelstra: We’re Tired of Hits to Big Three
In the wake of Dwyane Wade’s suspension for kicking Charlotte Bobcats’ Ramon Sessions in the groin, the Miami Heat took the unusual step of issuing a statement firing back at the league office on Friday.
The Heat said they disagreed with the suspension and further complained about how their players have been being treated by opposing teams recently. Wade, the Heat said, is one of the players the opposition “takes privileges with.” They said they had “made their feelings known to the league office.”
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra implied the Heat’s stars are being targeted by opposing teams.
“That was a very physical game; there were a lot of hard hits in that game,” Spoelstra told reporters in Detroit. “What we’re getting tired of as an organization are the hits, particularly to Dwyane and LeBron and Chris (Bosh). That is the game planagainst us.”
