Upon being asked about his impressions of the play two weeks after the fact, Iasiah Thomas did not take issue with Wade’s aggressive defense. He attempted to make a play on the ball and caught Thomas at a bad angle. Wade’s actions after the play did catch the ire of Thomas. "It is what it is,” Thomas said of the foul. The only thing I didn't like was how he looked at me after. You can't control that. He tried to block the shot, but the only thing I thought about when I watched the film was how he looked at me after." Boston Globe

Bosh was off the bench and halfway down the court after Wade’s impossible floater to tie the score with 41 seconds to play, and again when Wade knocked down that 15-foot fadeaway jumper to give the Heat the lead with 13.6 seconds left. “For me, it just gives me joy to see him over there, and me and him have a lot of laughs and conversations throughout the game,” Wade said. “Just knowing everything that happened and how scared we were, seeing him out there and celebrating and cheering with us, that gives you something extra.” Wade has been playing with a little something extra this week, scoring 32 points in back-to-back games. He was 13 of 18 from the field on Monday in the Heat’s victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and he shot 13 of 26 against the Trail Blazers. Miami Herald

Dwyane Wade credits improved health and a recent change in his workout routine as the driving forces behind his recent surge in production amid the Miami Heat's push to make the playoffs. "This is the best I've felt in years right now," Wade said Wednesday. "You question it. And you try not to question it, like 'Why? Why couldn't I feel like this the last two years?' But it is what it is. I'm feeling like this now, when I need it individually to (carry) more of a load to help this team." ESPN.com

Watching from a distance were Dwyane Wade, who was 13 at the time, and Jamal Crawford, 14. They were both at home—Wade in Chicago with his stepbrothers and Crawford with a friend in Los Angeles. "My brother was sitting in the kitchen with his small 12-inch TV watching all the coverage, [Jordan] pulling up in a Ferrari," said Wade, who's a good friend of the Hall of Famer and was an endorser of his company at one point. "It was just a cool moment. It's crazy that it was 20 years ago. I was my son, Zaire's, age now. "When he came back, it was just the excitement that we got the opportunity to witness him more. Being a kid in the community that I grew up in, it was big to have that confidence, to walk around with that kind of swagger. You don't understand the impact that the Bulls, Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, those guys had on me as a young kid. They were the reason that I had a dream, a hope that I can be that one day."

The Miami Heat star helped the group of foster teens (from the Florida Guardian ad Litem program) suit up for prom — literally. Wade teamed up with his stylist to fit the boys with Hublot watches and custom-tailored suits. For The Win

Dwyane Wade scored 32 points on 18 shots and the Miami Heat beat LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night, 106-92. After the game, Wade got the customary postgame interview on the ESPN broadcast. Udonis Haslem took the opportunity to videobomb his forever teammate and even used bunny ears. With Chris Bosh out for the season, other Miami big men have been asked to do more, including videobomb. The Big Lead

But if Dragic is a fit, perhaps Miami does not need another star. “I think he fits with what we want to build and what we want to do in the future,” Wade said. “Personality-wise, I think he fits. I believe so, but that’s not my call. But I know the front office did a great job doing their homework before they made the move and they wouldn’t have made it if they didn’t think he was a long-term fit for us. I think we all like him.” Palm Beach Post

As good as that group sounds, Wade does not think Miami has quite enough to contend for an Eastern Conference title next season. “That five is pretty good, if everyone’s healthy, but you need a little bit more than that,” he said. “I feel that it gives us a better opportunity than we had coming into this season, then you continue to add certain pieces if you can. If we come back next season healthy and everybody’s going, we still need to add a few pieces. We could be pretty good.” Palm Beach Post

Is Wade disappointed? “Very,” he said. “We all are. As a Heat fan you are. In this locker room we are. Everybody. He’s gonna have to learn and he’s gonna learn the hard way. He’s doing it his own way. Hopefully he changes his mentality pretty quick. “Players gotta understand how important they are to an organization and continue to understand that moment when you finally got that call-up, how you felt. You would’ve done anything to get that, just to be here. Sometimes you start feeling yourself a little too much. A lot of us are guilty of that. You’ve gotta humble yourself. Hopefully Hassan gets it.” Palm Beach Post

Dragic, who wants to stay with the Heat longterm, already has forged a close bond with Wade: “When I played against him, I thought he was a scorer. I didn’t know he was such a great passer. It’s so easy to play with this kind of player. [And] Wade is such a nice person. He embraced me.” Dragic is learning Wade’s tendencies; when Dragic penetrated, he passed to Wade for a three-pointer recently and “I said, ‘Shoot it.’ He said, ‘I don’t feel comfortable. It’s not my game.’” Miami Herald

Wade said he learned of Rose's injury late Tuesday from former Heat teammate LeBron James, who had just finished playing a game for the Cavaliers against the Detroit Pistons. "You just don't want to see players go through injuries, especially him, with what he's dealt with. I couldn't believe it when I got the call. Actually 'Bron called me and told me because I wasn't even watching it. You can't believe it," Wade said. South Florida Sun-Sentinel
