Video: Dwyane Wade with a monster throw down... then the Cabbage Patch?

Memphis Grizzlies v Miami Heat

<> at American Airlines Arena on March 12, 2011 in Miami, Florida.

Oklahoma City got Kendrick Perkins to defend the rim — and he did a good job of it most of Wednesday night — but Dwyane Wade put a hurt on him with this one. (Which is not a slam on Perkins — Wilt Chamberlain standing on Bill Russell’s shoulders may not have blocked this dunk.) It sparked a 10-2 run that may have been the best couple minutes of Heat basketball this season.

What a monster move... but then the cabbage patch? Is it 1987 again and I didn’t get the memo?

We’ll forgive the celebration this one time. But we’re not reliving the 1980s. They were not that great the first time.
