Video: Dwyane Wade with a monster throw down… then the Cabbage Patch?

Oklahoma City got Kendrick Perkins to defend the rim — and he did a good job of it most of Wednesday night — but Dwyane Wade put a hurt on him with this one. (Which is not a slam on Perkins — Wilt Chamberlain standing on Bill Russell’s shoulders may not have blocked this dunk.) It sparked a 10-2 run that may have been the best couple minutes of Heat basketball this season.

What a monster move… but then the cabbage patch? Is it 1987 again and I didn’t get the memo?

We’ll forgive the celebration this one time. But we’re not reliving the 1980s. They were not that great the first time.

    D Wade is a fantastic player. he seems to be playing with more enrgy now. It was unfortunate that they lost this game but what an amazing DUNK!! Even though he gets more credit than he was last year or the year before, he may still be one of the more underrated talents in the NBA.

    A+ on the dunk; D- on the dance.

    C’mon guys did you see the Fab 5 documentary? He was obviously paying homage to Juwuan Howard with the Cabbage Patch. Give the guy a break he’s having fun out there, but for the dunk D: oh my Lord!

    Did anyone check him for a ticket? Dude traveled, how many steps do the stars get now? It used to be impossible to spin with the ball while on the ground without getting called…now you see something similar to that every couple weeks. It is ruining basketball!
