NBA to review Wade’s low blow to Sessions
"He kicked him in the ding-ding!"
It’s hard to know definitively whether this was intentional or not, but it looks unusual and incredibly painful.
With the Heat leading the Bobcats 83-79 with 8:14 remaining in the fourth quarter, Heat guard Dwyane Wade delivered a below-the-belt shot to Ramon Sessions with his leg, sending the Bobcats guard to the ground in pain.
Sessions appeared to foul Wade intentionally to slow down a potential transition opportunity. Wade initially tried to avoid the contact by dribbling hard to his right but couldn’t escape Sessions’ grasp. He then followed through with a left kicking motion directly to the groin of Sessions, which caused him to double over. Once back on his feet, Sessions appealed to Wade, as if to ask him why he had done that, and the two exchanged words before an official intervened. The conversation continued for roughly 20 seconds.
No additional fouls — flagrant, technical or otherwise — were assessed aside from Sessions’ initial foul.

1. Not particularly debilitating, from Sessions' reaction.
I'd suspend Wade one game for egregious unsportsmanlike conduct, however. We can't have that sort of ruffianism on the court.
Nice vid, too.
