HoopsHype Ozzie Guillen rumors


May 19, 2012 Updates

Ozzie Guillen's self-imposed probation stemming from April's five-game suspension doesn't extend to sensitivities involving the struggles of Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat. A day after having vowed to be done with Twitter, the outspoken manager wasn't backing off his shoot-from-the-hip style of expression, saying Wade's behavior toward Heat coach Erik Spoelstra during a Thursday loss "can guarantee a fight." "I will kick his ass," Guillen told reporters Friday. "Well, I won't say I'll kick his ass. They'll kick my ass because they're bigger than me, and I'm older. But I will take my chances. Some people have to understand our job." ESPN.com
