Remember when Dwyane Wade got suspended for one game back in late December for kicking Ramon Sessions in the groin? D-Wade does. So does LeBron James. And, earlier tonight, they both took to Twitter to question why Wade got suspended for his hit on Sessions but Serge Ibaka didn't get suspended for his recent hit on Blake Griffin:
So explain to me the difference? My teammate gets a 1 game suspension and 150k+ taking away from him for his groin altercation #strangetome— LeBron James (@KingJames) March 5, 2013
All I can say is WoW....no pun intended but really....and I get suspended and lose 200 grand... #someexplainingtodo— Way of WADE (@DwyaneWade) March 5, 2013
When you think about it, they've got a point. Why isn't Ibaka suspended for essentially doing the same thing that Wade did? We might have to agree with James and Wade (and Griffin!) on this one...
