We expected Blake Griffin to take special exception to Serge Ibaka's being allowed to play against the Lakers instead of sitting out in street clothes. However, when the NBA decided not to upgrade Ibaka's flagrant-1 to a flagrant-2 and suspend him for Tuesday night's primetime matchup, the Miami Heat's LeBron and Dwyane Wade joined him in complaining about the NBA's inconsistent punishments.
Kid Blake: Who are you? Future Blake: you from the future… Don't listen to anything else I've told you just start wearing a cup.

So explain to me the difference? My teammate gets a 1 game suspension and 150k+ taking away from him for his groin altercation #strangetome

In case, you're not aware, Wade was suspended for doing his best to promote soccer in America by kicking Mo Williams in the groin during a December win over the Utah Jazz. It's the sort of thing you'd want people to forget, but apparently Dwyane Wade still believes he did nothing wrong and has no problem reminding us all.
