NBA Playoffs 2012: Watch Dwyane Wade Leave Mike Bibby Shoeless
For any of you out there suffering shoe-related issues, don't think for a second that Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade is going to help you.
The series is still young between the New York Knicks and Heat, but it's already featured some hard fouls, a blowout and a shoe-tossing incident that is very close to becoming a full-on scandal.
Of course, it would be silly to get embroiled in a moment of pure gamesmanship, but that's why we love sports. Even the tiniest of minutiae can be dissected for months.
With more than nine minutes to go in the first half and with the game all tied up, Mike Bibby lost his shoe. I know, I will give you a moment to mass email all your friends and declare the incident to all your buddies on Facebook.
Bibby's losing of his shoe should have been met with yawns, and then Bibby subsequently putting his shoe back on.
Instead, Wade found the shoe and tossed it to the side of the court, limiting Bibby's ability to get back on offense and generally making us all chuckle.
You see, there are only a few options open to a man who sees a vacated shoe lying on the court. He can ignore the lost piece of footwear, only to really miss out on a valuable opportunity to make a Game 2 matchup all the more interesting.
He can also find that shoe and give it back to its rightful owner in a show of good faith that would have all the moms in attendance letting out a sigh of pride and amazement.
Or, he can toss it to the side with some damn swagger.
Wade chose to toss Bibby's shoe, and I love it. For no other reason than it is hilarious, and that concludes the longest I have ever discussed a shoe and/or a grown man tossing said shoe.
