“He has been scoring the basketball, but I think he’s been doing a really good job of deciphering when to score and when to pass,” Drew said recently. “That was something that coming into this thing with him that we knew we would have to teach him, and show him, and continue to harp on. But what I’m seeing, he’s kind of picking and choosing his spots. Which is what point guards do.” Sexton said he will watch the Rising Stars game. He wants to support teammate Osman and Sexton is friends with a number of participants.
Storyline: All-Star Contests
Dwyane Wade’s last moments on the Quicken Loans Arena hardwood were spent with him yanking on the bottom of the net while teammate Josh Richardson polished off a 100-94 win at the free throw line. Then, the future Hall-of-Famer exchanged jerseys with Cavaliers rookie Collin Sexton. “It means a whole lot,” Sexton said. “Everything he did for this whole game and him being someone I can go to and talk to is pretty cool.”
After every game, Wade picks one lucky player to get an unforgettable souvenir. When the on-court photo op ends, Wade typically signs the jersey and writes a personal message. In the Cavaliers locker room, Sexton had the new memento folded neatly in his locker while he spoke to reporters. On an otherwise lousy night, where Sexton scored 13 points and missed nine of his 13 shot attempts, that brief moment with Wade led to a smile. “Growing up, I used to watch Dwyane Wade a whole lot,” Sexton said. “He was one of the players I looked up to and tried to take things away from his game that I could use in mine.”
This time, it was Sexton, who is represented by the same agency (CAA) as Wade. But even before joining that “team,” the two formed a tight bond. “It was someone that I built a relationship to where, as I talked about with Trae Young and this younger generation, this summer when I was out in Atlanta, Collin got in touch with me,” Wade told cleveland.com. “I was at my son’s AAU tournament. He came early in the morning to sit with me, watch my son’s games all day, just talk, pick my brain. I like that. I like that in young players when they reach out to you, when they’re searching for knowledge, so I continued that relationship.”
