And Dwyane Wade got a pass for an absolutely rockhead play in Miami’s inexplicable loss to Boston on Saturday.
The Heat led by four with less than two seconds to play. On their home floor. Against the Celtics. And lost. In regulation.
And most of it was on Wade, who (a) faltered in the clutch; (b) made his own strategic decision without any input from the coaches; (c) poorly executed his strategy; and (d) opened a door to a loss that had pretty much been closed.
And Wade got a pass. Understandably, from his coach and teammates. But also from the fans and the media.
