Dwyane Wade gets call on blatant flop on Manu Ginobili (Video)

Dwyane Wade flopSome may call Dwyane Wade a wily veteran for some of sly tricks he employs on the court. Whether it’s a subtle kick to an opponent or a blatant flop that gets a call, Wade does what he can to get the edge. And on Sunday, he got a call by putting on a great acting job.

Wade got the ball in the second quarter and was being guarded by Manu Ginobili, who swatted at the ball in an attempt to get a steal. Wade jolted his head like he had been struck by Ginobili, and he got the call.

Ginobili couldn’t believe it, and neither could Gregg Popovich. Replays later showed that Ginobili was nowhere near Wade’s face! About the only thing that could have knocked Wade out was his own elbow on that reaction!

He got the call in the game, but Wade will probably be penalized by the league for that display.

    Is everyone blind to the fact that Wade got hit in the hand which constitutes as a foul regardless?
