Kevin Durant to Dwyane Wade: “You’re too small”

It is one key to winning in the NBA — exploit your mismatches.

Against Kevin Durant, pretty much the other 449 guys in the league are a mismatch. Including Dwyane Wade. At one point in the second half Wade got switched on Durant defensively. That’s a size mismatch. Durant recognized it and scored over him.

Then the cameras caught Durant talking some smack as they went down court.

“He told me I was too small,” Wade said after the game in an interview broadcast on NBA TV. “I had to run down the court and say ‘what’d you say again’ and he said ‘you’re too small.’

“He’s got seven inches on me, so, I played good defense but he’s a scorer and he made a good shot.”

Wade is too small in that matchup. But the fact is the Heat have been undersized throughout the playoffs and even regular season. They can make up for it because they have the athletes who can still block shots and make it hard to score in the paint — Wade and LeBron James are good shot blockers — and they have done that in this series.

Oklahoma City is feeling that pressure — it was 13-of-27 at the rim (48.2 percent) in Game 2, according to Hoopdata.com.

“We’re not the biggest team at all, we’re used to it,” Wade said. “We’ve been playing, at times, small basketball all season. Chris (Bosh) is the biggest guy in our rotation. It’s fine.”

So go ahead and call Wade small. He doesn’t care. He and the Heat have defended the paint well… except against Durant. But Durant can talk all he wants, two moer wins and Wade will laugh all the way to the ring ceremony next fall.

kinda OT but I don't know why Bosh doesn't put a whole bunch of muscle on, he could be a beast... makes no sense to me that he stays so skinny at his position

He did in 07 or whatever but the wear and tear of the regular season brought him back down to what you see today. He was better at finishing around the rim but he did lose a bit of athleticism and wasn't nearly as good a defender as he is now.

Chris Bosh's frame isn't one to worry about at the 4, the 5 ... but he's far from a defensive liability no matter the match up

Some people may be incapable of bulking up, even though they've added muscle.

Durant is about 6'9-'11 and the NBA has him at 235lbs. There are other players with that weight and look heftier. It's probably the frame they're born with.

Lebron should say that to Durant the next time he abuses him in the post

09 he bulked up heavily in the offseason, came back, looked like an mvp calibre player for the first month of the season (though this was the freeagency season so maybe most of that was just playing for a contract) but eventually his knees gave out...couldn't support the weight gain

adding too much muscle will mess up your shot. ask anyone who plays ball and lifts weights heavy.

durant is a shooter. why would he mess?
