Dwyane Wade didn't opt to hand Mike Bibby his shoe on Monday night.  Instead, Wade tossed Bibby's shoe into the front row.  Hey, it's the playoffs.

The Miami Heat beat the New York Knicks 104-94 in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference 1st Round on Monday night.  The Heat now lead the series 2-0.  With the game tied 29-29 early in the 2nd quarter, Dwyane Wade picked up Mike Bibby's shoe and tossed it off the court.  D-Wade decided to relocate Bibby's footwear.

Sure, Mike Bibby and Dwyane Wade both played for the Miami Heat last season.  The two former teammates played in the NBA Finals as the Dallas Mavericks beat the Heat in six games.  However, that was then and this is now.  The two former teammates are current opponents.  If Wade wants to toss Bibby's shoe to the side, it's permissible.  No harm, no foul.  It's playoff time, baby.
