Above is a video that has gone viral, of Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade kicking Charlotte Bobcats guard Ramon Sessions in the groin. The NBA has announced that Dwayne is suspended because of the incident, which wasn’t whistled by referees.

After the announcement, Wade took to his Twitter to defend his action by saying that he did not deliberately set out to incapacitate Sessions, he just reacted.

However, the footage doesn’t lie.

“I'm far from being a dirty player, + my intent was never 2 kick Ramon Sessions. I just reacted to the contact that I got from him,” Wade wrote on his page.

“More than anything, I think of my boys watchin me be4 retaliating 2ward any player,” he added.

Sessions is the first not to believe him, telling the press he though the kick was intentional and no amount of tweeting on Dwyane’s part can get him to change his mind.
