Dwyane Wade on Taj Gibson dunk: 'I knew I didn't have a chance'

May 16, 2011 |  8:37 am

Dwyane Wade doesn't get dunked on very often. In fact, the Miami Heat superstar said it hadn't happened all year going into the Eastern Conference finals.

But the two-handed jam that Chicago's Taj Gibson slammed over him early in the second quarter Sunday was so spectacular, even Wade had to admit it probably wouldn't be the last time it happened.

"It was a very athletic play," Wade said after the Heat's 103-82 loss. "I knew I didn’t have a chance when I started back-pedaling when I saw him take off. It won’t be the last time I get dunked on."

Check out Gibson's dunk and the rest of the highlights from Sunday's game.
