Chris Bosh: The moments when I was most inspired by Bron and D weren’t when we were on opposing teams but when we were on the same team—starting during The Olympics in 2008. That summer, Kobe set the tone for all of us, which meant nobody was messing around. And the intensity started on the day of our first practice in Beijing. That morning, I headed down to breakfast early, which made me feel good about myself—because I figured most of my teammates were still sleeping. And I was right. Basically no one else was down there… except for Kobe. Not only was he the first to breakfast, but he also had ice bags on his knees, which meant he’d already worked out.
Chris Bosh: Mind you, this was less than two weeks after the Lakers lost in the Finals to the Celtics. You couldn’t have blamed him for resting up and focusing on being healthy for the next season. But instead, the dude was pushing himself harder than any human being I had ever met— waking up at 4:00 a.m. to hit the gym. That meant all of us were gonna push ourselves, too. With Kobe as an inspiration, D and Bron elevated their games that summer, balling out at practices at a level I’d never seen before. And they, in turn, inspired me. Hell, we all inspired each other. Because we knew that if we didn’t step up, there was no way we’d get playing time. So I started hitting the gym earlier than I ever did before.
TNT will look ahead to the NBA’s restart with a series of one-hour special editions of the Sports Emmy Award-winningInside the NBA presented by Kia and new NBA on TNT Tuesday Night studio shows starting Tuesday, July 7, at 8 p.m. ET. Inside the NBA’s Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal will be featured on Thursday nights, while Dwyane Wade, Candace Parker, O’Neal and Adam Lefkoe will appear on Tuesday nights. TNT’s Chris Haynes will report from Orlando.
My understanding is that it almost happened in Chicago. Chris Bosh: They had some cap space and they made a hard push. But they couldn’t get all three of us. One of the things they did was they were trying to put me in the middle. They were saying if you come somebody’s definitely coming. Taj Gibson, Joakim, Luol, D. Rose who was coming off an MVP season … that was a very very solid foundation. And they were on rookie contracts. They had the potential to be pretty good. But you were living under Mike’s shadow. They were trying to negotiate with me: If you just sign …
Storyline: The Decision
A real general manager should be able to dominate the CPU, right? Daryl Morey is finding out if that’s the case. And watching him control a team on NBA 2K is actually a really interesting experience. At times, he plays the game much more like you’d expect from a general manager, relying on his own knowledge. “I don’t really know how important the ratings are,” Morey said in the initial draft, selecting Dwyane Wade with the fifth overall pick. “I just have my intuitive sense of how good these players are.”
The rules were simple and were part of the reason that he chose Wade: Morey could only select inactive players through the 2K draft, unless they currently play for the Rockets. So James Harden, shockingly rated at 79 overall, was certainly an option for Morey. And that’s exactly who he took to complement Wade in the backcourt. The Rockets are known for their distinctive small-ball style of play, and Morey took that same approach to the game, though the league had not yet reached that type of modernity yet. Shane Battier (former Rocket) was next, followed by the likes of Nikola Mirotic, Jameer Nelson and Marcus Camby.
Dwyane Wade’s got something to cheer about: the reopening of his Wynwood store! He couldn’t be here because of the ‘rona, but he’s still telling Deco about the pop-up. Dwyane Wade: “Yo, I know you guys heard the good news, man!” Dwyane Wade’s The Shop in Pop Up Shop is back in business. The shop was co-founded by D-Wade and celebrity stylist Calyann Barnett, along with NBA star Chris Paul during Art Basel, and it just reopened after being closed for months.

Former Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade will likely never have to worry about money for the rest of his life. He made nearly $200 million just from his NBA contracts, not to mention endorsements and business ventures. Still, Wade was also one of the top celebrities to increase their income during the quarantine period through Instagram. According to Attain, he ranked No. 8 among athletes by earning more than $160,000 off sponsored posts from March 12-May 14.
NBA Central: Austin Rivers says DWade is a top 10-15 player of all time and rips ESPN for ranking him 26th “If you did not play in the NBA or coached the NBA, I don’t care what your opinion is about the all time greatest…I don’t give a f*ck.” (🎥 @uninterrupted ) pic.twitter.com/tN8zkvL8SN

Udonis Haslem: “Me and the Miami Heat will always be connected, that hasn’t been taken away. But I wanted to have the opportunity to sit down and plan something with them. I’ll never have something close to like what Dwyane had. But the organization and myself deserve to have one particular night when we have a situation collectively to represent one another and do it the right away.”
Haslem delivered meals Wednesday from his 800 Degrees restaurant, which he co-owns in Aventura with retired Heat guard Dwyane Wade, to personnel at the Central and North Miami Police stations and Doctors Hospital in Coral Gables. It’s a continuation of Haslem’s recent food distribution effort amid the pandemic, as he also delivered meals from 800 Degrees to Memorial Hospital West staff in Pembroke Pines last week.
Gabrielle Union has been enduring lockdown with her husband Dwyane Wade and their kids. But the actress revealed that her former NBA player husband has an interesting isolation hobby: watching his old games. Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday’s episode of The Tonight Show, the 47-year-old said that to cope with the lack of sports airing during the pandemic, Dwyane has resorted to watching some games from his 16-year career.
‘We watched the 06 finals, and obviously I’d seen it over the years but never with him,’ the Being Mary Jane actress said. ‘You know, he was live tweeting this game like “oo good move D-Wade.”‘ ‘But then I started watching it and I didn’t know how it ended. And he missed these two free-throws at the end of the game and like I didn’t want to talk to him for the rest of the night,’ she joked.
Former NBA superstar Dwyane Wade played a key role on the “Redeem Team,” the 2008 United States Olympic men’s basketball squad that won gold after taking home the bronze medal four years earlier. When asked about participating in a documentary about that team, Wade told Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel the following: “Certain individuals reached out to me to be part of this documentary. And I was like, ‘Of course.’ This is just is a no-brainer for me to be a part of it. Because this is a part of my rebranding of who I was, as a basketball player, going to the Olympics.”

Miami Heat president Pat Riley recently gave high praise to Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James. While reminiscing on the formation of the Heat’s Big 3, the former head coach revealed he believes James is arguably the best player ever. “After July the first, I just laid it out on the table,” Riley recalled. “LeBron and Chris [Bosh], two of the greatest players in our game. And LeBron, maybe the greatest player of all time, with Dwyane [Wade]. All you have to do is put it on the table.”

D-Wade then reported to Maester Wind Horse (Brian Windhorst), who channeled his inner Lord Varys. The library scene featured several media gems hidden in bookshelves, including “Chris Broussard Fiction”, and “Van Gundian Rants” (an ode to the Van Gundy brothers), as well as a “Celtics Porn” section where a creepy-looking Bill Simmons lingers. Maester Wind Horse even managed to take a shot at James Harden who “vanishes in a meaningful playoff game”.

Dwyane Wade producing documentary on the Redeem Team

Dwyane Wade is producing a documentary on the “Redeem Team,” the United States men’s national basketball team that won a gold medal at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. “It’s something that we’ve been working on for the last year or so,” Wade said on the Platform Basketball podcast. “For me, that was a big year, 2008. I had to kind of redeem myself, because everybody thought I was done.”
Aaron Gordon has put his displeasure with the 2020 Dunk Contest into a “diss” track titled “9 OUT OF 10,” in which he calls out Dwyane Wade for the vote that helped him lose to Miami’s Derrick Jones Jr. In an epic dunk contest back in February, Gordon dunked over Chance the Rapper (twice) and threw down 360-degree, between-the-leg slams. The battle between Gordon and Jones carried on into a “dunk-off” in which each player had to improvise dunks that hadn’t been rehearsed. For Gordon’s final dunk, he cleared 7-foot-6 Tacko Fall.
The latest installment comes two months after Gordon lost to Wade’s former teammate, Derrick Jones Jr., in a controversial dunk contest during NBA All-Star Weekend in Chicago. Last week Gordon released a diss rap track aimed at Wade, one of the judges who gave Gordon a nine when jumped over 7-foot-5 rookie Tacko Fall on his final dunk. The song is titled “9 out of 10.” The chorus goes, “Nine out of 10, can you please fix your lens? Nine out 10 got you playing pretend. Nine out of 10, here we go again. Nine out of 10, could have bought the fam’ a Benz. Nine out of 10, are you making amends? Nine out of 10, probably lost an M.”
