Dwyane Wade was apparently fed up with Kelly Oubre, Jr. on Saturday night, so much so that he pulled out a move straight from the playground.
Not the outdoor basketball court-type of playgroud. Like, the children's playground with slides and swings and seesaws.
Wade was so mad he flicked Oubre in the back of the ear. It was, um, unexpected and that was clear by Oubre's reaction. He turned around clearly disoriented by Wade's method of retaliation.

Take another look at Oubre's face after the poke. He was understandably surprised.
Wade was unhappy because he caught an elbow when Oubre went up for the basket, but it didn't seem intentional. Oubre turned around and happened to clip him while attempting the shot.
That poke, though. Look at the girl's face in the crowd behind them. She knew that crossed the line.
Remember, Wade and Oubre matched up with each other just a few days prior. Wade got the best of Oubre, but Oubre said he thought Wade flopped on a foul in overtime. He had a great line about how Wade wanted an Oscar like Kobe Bryant.
