08:08 AM ET 05.18 | In some ways, Dwyane Wade's 2-of-13 night on the floor was the least of his transgressions. There was a frustration that boiled over in the third quarter as a team dreaming of an NBA championship was helpless to stop its own collapse. Coach Erik Spoelstra approached [Wade] during a timeout, as if to place his hand on the player's shoulder. "Get out of my [expletive] face!" Wade snapped. ... "It was a bad night," he said. "There were a lot of reasons for it. I just didn't have it going." Wade still was simmering following the game. He was asked if he had anything to say about the courtside outburst. "No," he said. It wasn't just Thursday that led to Wade's frustration overload. Wade shot poorly from the field in the first two games as well.

Dammm.... Dwade is losing it. Dwade's bad shooting is just one of their problems. Someone on that staff needs to tell Dwade the truth why he is playing so poorly. I think he is too heavy.

The biggest problem is Spo. What was he thinking putting Pittman (a D-League player) in that game. Not only was he terrible, but he was out of shape too. Then to top it off, he calls a play that puts Pittman against Hibbert. Wow.

So, it's Spo's fault that MeBron and Wade sucked last night? No inside game, Wade quit on a few plays and the team looked bad. Real bad.

It's going to take a few players making full 48 minute efforts to come back.

That rules MeBron out, because he's tuckered out at 42 minutes.

So, nothing is the player's fault? It's the coach's fault that Wade quit on a few plays? It's the coach's fault that MeBron sucked? It's the coach's fault that the team has no heart? It's the coach's fault that MeBron can't play a full game without getting sleepy?

Also, are you saying Wade is fat? Is that the coach's fault as well?

With the team sucking, the coach had no choice but to try everything he had available.

please, explain.

Damn, MeBron didn't even play 42 minutes last night and certainly wasn't playing defense. Why was he tossing up all those bricks?

Simply put... trade Wade in the offseason....

You have to find a sucker to take a player on the downside of the career at max dollars who is a punk.

Good luck.

Also, the players, all 3 of 'em, can terminate the contracts in 2014, so James may be on the move soon to find another bunch of stars to tag along with.
