Who’s To Blame?
Dwayne Wade in Sports Illustrated – “LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant, guys like that understand what Boston’s defense was about. Their defense was built on not letting one player beat them. You either settle for the outside shot or you pass to your teammates. LeBron had one bad game in the playoffs. Other than that, he did what he could do with the defense all watching him.”
“I don’t see where you can get where he quit,” Wade said. “He just had one bad game. It happens. Kobe had a bad game in the finals. They won. It didn’t matter. LeBron’s teammates didn’t help him out that game and it made the way he played even worse. But he’s not a quitter. He didn’t quit.”
Mo Williams on Twitter – “Come on d wade, watch your mouth. I read your article.”
