(WSCR) After the Pacers defeated the Heat in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, the Pacers erupted in a postgame celebration on the court.

The premature celebration after winning a simple playoff game didn’t sit well with Dwyane Wade.

“I heard they wanted to be like the Dallas Mavericks, in a sense,” Wade told reporters after the game. “I saw their little celebration at the end of that game. I don’t know if they didn’t expect to win, but every night we go out on the court, we expect to win.

“They say their identity, they say they want to be like Dallas. So they celebrated like Dallas, I guess.”

While Wade has a point, he’s seemingly forgotten the nonsense that took place in Miami during the summer of 2010 when the Heat threw a city-wide party to celebrate the pairing of himself, LeBron James and Chris Bosh, which Wade referred to as the “best trio to ever play the game of basketball.”

Oh, right. Then James promised “not two, not three, not four, not five, not six, not seven” championships.

Good call.

Relive the absurdity below.
