The Dwyane Wade Rules

Dwyane Wade Not Fouling Shane BattierWe all remember the Jordan rules. Now it appears to be the Dwyane Wade Rules. Last night, Dwyane took a swipe at the ball as Shane Battier was holding it, except he hit Battier’s arm and hand with such force that he separated his own shoulder. According to Sports Illustrated:

Wade, who scored 27 points, was playing defense when his left arm collided with Houston’s Shane Battier and awkwardly stretched back.

I would think in normal circumstances that if a player were to hit another player with enough force to injure themselves, that a foul would be called. Was it called in this case? Of course not.

Youtube goodness after the jump.

    Visit this site for a great editorial about Wade’s injury:

    I had never thought about the absurdity of DWade’s Converse slogan until I read this article.
