Video: Mike Bibby loses shoe, Dwyane Wade “helps” him

May 1, 2012, 11:49 AM EDT

This was my favorite little moment from Tuesday night’s playoff action. Somehow little Mike Bibby ends up with a rebound and literally had to jump out of his shoe to get it. He was without his shoe.

Dwyane Wade, remembering how much Bibby “helped” the Heat on their playoff run last year, decides to “help” Bibby with his shoe. It made me laugh.

Although, as Dan Devine noted at Ball Don’t Lie, the Knicks are so much worse with Bibby on the floor (14 points per 100 possessions) that Wade should be doing all he can to keep Bibby in the game. But sometimes instincts take over.

    Your favorite moment? But if Bibby had done that to Wade, techs and suspensions would ensue.

      That’s a naive assumption.

    • jobotjones - May 1, 2012 at 12:28 PM

      That is so true it’s not even funny.

      In all seriousness though it was probably more of a player safety instinct from wade…you can snap an ankle pretty easily stepping on something like that.

        That’s exactly what it was. I see nothing wrong with what he did considering the injuries we’ve seen so far.

      • Mr. Wright 212 - May 1, 2012 at 12:32 PM

        I’d buy that if he didn’t have the devilish smirk on his face while doing so. But who am I to assess his intentions? His track record denies him that benefit of the doubt.

        Amar’e would have punched the shoe out of frustration.

      so true, if that had been done to lebron he would be still crying about how bush legue it was and demanding a suspension.

  2. Mr. Wright 212 - May 1, 2012 at 12:33 PM

    I would have gotten a real suspension if he had done that to me. A nice uppercut to that HGH jaw of his. That’s tantamount to spitting on a guy (people who have actually played BALL know).

      Not a Wade fan? Tell us how you REALLY feel.

    • southbeachtalent - May 1, 2012 at 1:03 PM

      So you actually played ball huh? Where at the local YMCA?

      I’m sure you were a shoe in for the NBA but you busted a (insert body part here)…

      That does not begin to compare to being spit on.

      Heat 2
      Knicks 0

      Off to MSG where LeBron dominates. And all the fire extinguishers are still in their case. At least for now….. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHA

      • Mr. Wright 212 - May 1, 2012 at 3:18 PM

        Took every bit of wit that you have to come up with that pithy little comment, huh? Take it elsewhere, buffoon.

        And the Heat still aren’t winning anything this year, see who’s laughing June 17.

    I can’t recall who it was, but didn’t a player throw his own shoe off the court once and continue playing once?

    I can see how it looks a little douchey on Wade’s part since the action was moving away from that portion of the court so who knows what the dudes intentions truly were.

    Can never put it past Wade to be bush league.

  5. 00maltliquor - May 1, 2012 at 3:17 PM

    That was a d!ckhead move by Wade, he wasn’t thinking player safty in the least bit any more then Artest’s “flying elbow” was unintentional, but it’s a move you love if the player doing it is on your team!

  6. paintman34 - May 1, 2012 at 4:15 PM

    why dont u guys actually look at Wade’s comments on it. there friends dumbasses

  7. asuthyo - May 1, 2012 at 4:34 PM

    I thought it was hilarious. Honestly the thing you don’t see is that Wade didn’t sprint back down the court for D and the Knicks got an easy bucket.

    So while it was funny, it also cost the Heat (who knew 4 Knicks were better than 5 when Bibby is one of the 5).

  8. rosesacl - May 1, 2012 at 4:47 PM

    He could have tossed the shoe 15 rows deep… that would suck…

  9. edweird0 - May 2, 2012 at 1:34 AM

    You’d have to be a fool to think that wasn’t intentional, and this is coming from a heat fan. Regardless, that had to be my favorite moment of the game. The way Wade jogged backwards staring bibby down was priceless.
