Dwyane Wade took a swipe at Mike Bibby before Game 5
Dwyane Wade still has some bitterness toward Mike Bibby over the point guard’s poor play last season. Speaking before Game 5 of the Heat-Knicks first-round playoff series, Wade took a jab at his former teammate, who’s now with the Knicks.
“We know Mike has made more shots in this series than he made all last year (with the Heat),” Wade told reporters. “Send that to Mike.”
This wasn’t the first time in the series that Wade exhibited some hostility toward Bibby. During Game 1, he also threw aside his former teammate’s shoe.
“I’d never done that before, but it was fun,” Wade said at the time. “I love messing with Mike, with Bibbs.”
Is it all in fun or is there some underlying anger there? I think it’s the latter. After the way Bibby played for the Heat last year, it’s easy to see why.
