The Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade isn't known for his dirty play, but last night he may have delivered one of the lowest blows known to man. Not just in sports, but in general.
Because it kind of looked like he kicked the Charlotte Bobcats' Ramon Sessions square in the nuts last night.
During the fourth quarter, Wade was driving down the court when Sessions puts both hands on him in a mini-bearhug in a botched attempt at a steal. Wade seemed to respond by launching his foot directly at Session's bobcat. Sessions went down on the floor writhing in pain (of course, we all know what that usually means in the NBA).
Wade wasn't called for a foul, but Sessions was hit with a reaching foul.
"I thought he did it on purpose, and it wasn't called," Sessions told the Sun-Sentinel.
The NBA is now reviewing the play to determine if any action should be taken against Wade.
The Heat, by the way, went on to win 105-92.
