We Reminisce: Dwyane Wade Eviscerates Kentucky

Since we’ve been speaking so much on the top college prospects in the game lately, I went back searching for this game, Dwyane Wade‘s 29-point, 11-rebound, 11-assist destruction of No. 1-seed Kentucky in 2003. It was so unique. Wade went from being basically unknown nationally to one of the better prospects in the draft in a very short span. This game put him on the map. Still, how can we watch now and not see what was to come?

Where does this stack up against other great individual performances in the tournament?

    You guys may not have known, but I was all over dudes game after his first year in college. At the time the Bulls were terrible so i just knew Wade was coming to Chicago to be the hometown hero. And all the talk was that Chicago was going to grab Wade at #7, assuming everyone had kind slept on him. Dumb a$$ John Paxson could have easily traded up to get Wade. the top 4 spots were already guaranteed to those 4 players (Bron, Melo, Bosh and Darko). The Bulls had already gotten screwed out of a draft pick in 2000 when they tried to wait on Darius Miles to slip to #4, and dumb ass Clippers jumped in a snatched him up.

    But since Rose showed up in 2007, all is forgiven.
