Chris Kaman: "I'm not much of a Dwyane Wade fan."

While Dwyane Wade was proving himself the best player on a championship team during the 2006 NBA Finals – better than even Shaquille O’Neal – a sizable group of detractors were bemoaning Wade getting every foul call in his favor.

Apparently, Chris Kaman was in that group. Kaman on BaD Radio 104.1 FM The Ticket, as transcribed by The Dallas Morning News:

I’m not much of a Dwyane Wade fan, but I’m a LeBron James fan. I’ve been watching him play, and we were in the same draft together. He’s had a great career already. I don’t want him to win everything, but I’m ok with the winning streak. I’m not against it or really for it. I just never really go along with (Dwyane Wade). I guess I just don’t like his style or whatever. I didn’t like the year the Mavs lost when he got all the foul calls. I didn’t like that.”


That will surely endear Kaman to Mavericks fans who still complain about Wade’s 16.2 free-throw attempts per game in the 2006 Finals. But Kaman, a free agent this summer, probably isn’t long for Dallas, and his potential destinations might have just shrunk by one. The Heat will probably look to add a center this summer, though it’s very difficult now to see Kaman as a fit.

Kaman, who’s always come across as willing to speak his mind, probably won’t regret the tradeoff – just as I’m sure Wade won’t apologize for how he won the Finals MVP.

That will be $25,000 Mr. Kaman.

He's done a lot of Texas Chainsaw Massacre's and most recently some Caveman commercials. I think he can handle that 25k fine.

I agree with his stance, but I don't really think he has the credibility to speak on this and have people care, he's a mediocre player that really shouldn't be calling out champions even if what he says is true.

I wonder if he's a Reggie Evans fan.

i've always liked kaman...

anyway, i'm glad people associated with the game still bring this up. can't let the media forget how the whistle got his first title. they've been trying to bury that storyline under a completely different one (greatest finals performance EVAR) for years now.

Well, if this NBA thing doesn't work out, he can always fall back on a modeling career.
