I've watched Sanders' file on Wade dozens and dozens of time in slo-mo and in smaller increments and although it may not be provable to 100% certainty, I believe the foul was intentional and that Saunders intended to come down on Wade. The way he turned his body to come down with his heavy posterior on Wade was also telling; the turn was a most unnatural motion for someone rushing toward someone for a block. Finally, the look on Sanders face after the collision, as though nothing happened was also telling; his failure to even look at Wade for so long afterward was another "tell". It may never be known or proven, but from what evidence there is, I believe Sanders tried to hurt Wade. Finally, I blame the refs for allowing for allowing too much physicality, as a few earlier calls may have prevented the escalation of fouls. Sanders' unnecesarily hard foul on Lebron should probably been call a flagrant 1, as there was no attempt on the ball. At the very least a technical foul should have been called.
