GIF: Dwyane Wade Shares Advice With Andrew Wiggins After Heat Beat ‘Wolves

Andrew Wiggins, Dwyane Wade

There’s so much more to like about the NBA than the actual game of basketball. This special moment between a future Hall-of-Famer and a teenage prodigy is a perfect example. After Dwyane Wade led the Miami Heat to a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday, the three-time champion offered sage advice to ballyhooed rookie Andrew Wiggins. Read More »

Dwyane Wade, Andrew Wiggins

Video: Dwayne Wade’s Post-Whistle Bounce Shot Might Mean He’s A Warlock

Dwyane Wade

Often, when the whistle blows to stop a play in the NBA, a player might continue his motion and take that jumper he was all set for, continue driving for a layup, or throw down a dunk. Dwayne Wade added something only a magician could conjure after the whistle last night in the second quarter of Miami’s eventual loss to undefeated Houston. Read More »

Dwyane Wade Is “Moving On” From LeBron James In Stirring New Video Mix

Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Lance Stephenson

Maybe it’s Ed Sheeran‘s hokey voice on “I see fire,” the hyperbolic narration by Stephen A. Smith, or the highlights of Dwyane Wade, but despite the mawkishness, this new mix by David Golic does an excellent job summarizing this transitional period in Wade’s career, his emphasis on being a dad, the loss of LeBron James this summer, and moving on this season.

The Top 20 Shooting Guards In The NBA Right Now

James Harden, Klay Thompson

The NBA is a point guard driven league. Look at personnel on the top teams in the Association. With just a couple exceptions, the best teams in the league have stellar point guard play. After the point guard position, the power forward position is emerging as the deepest talent pool in the league.

What’s been lost in the NBA is great play from the shooting guard position. Having a great shooting guard isn’t a necessity anymore. Just look at the San Antonio Spurs for proof. Gregg Popovich used a platoon of players at the shooting guard position last year, and none of them are superstars anymore. Danny Green is an elite three-point shooter, Manu Ginobili is past his prime but still a crafty offensive weapon, and Marco Belinelli can shoot it with the best of them, but struggles in other facets of the game. None of those guys – at least at this point in their careers – could carry the offense alone. Read More »

Video: LeBron Embraces Chalmers, Wade After Cavs-Heat Preseason Game

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

The Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Miami Heat 122-119 in an overtime thriller on Saturday that lived up to the hype surrounding LeBron James’ first game against his former team. Well, sort of. The score is real, but it belies the actual story: Cleveland was in control for the game’s majority until both teams rested their regular players at the beginning of the fourth quarter, and LeBron was noticeably disengaged from the opening tip. One thing we actually learned (or confirmed), though? All is well with James and his spurned teammates. Read More »

LeBron James Calls Recent Comments By Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade “Surprising”

Chris Bosh, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

The Miami Heat are moving on from LeBron James. Nothing to come out of South Beach in the immediate wake of James’ departure or in the months since have refuted his impact on the organization the past four seasons, or outright chastised him for returning home to the Cleveland Cavaliers. But a small war of words has been simmering nonetheless, and grew hotter this week when Chris Bosh said that he hasn’t talked to LeBron since The King’s decision and “doesn’t have much time” for players not on his team.

Report: Cavaliers, Heat Avoiding Social Engagements In Brazil

LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

A common critique of the modern NBA is that it lacks the competitive spirit – hatred is a better word – of the 1980s and 1990s. Players are friends first and opponents second, detractors say. That sentiment passes muster; growing up playing AAU basketball and the presence of social media keep these guys far closer socially than their predecessors. We don’t think that’s a bad thing, but can understand those that enjoy an air of outright vitriol in a basketball game. Might the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat be headed that way? It’s doubtful, but there are signs pointing the game’s newest rivalry is heading that direction. Read More »
