Dwyane Wade set to reach 1,000 career games

first_imgView comments After winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk “That’s crazy to think about,” Spoelstra said.Nobody has played in 1,000 regular-season games for the Heat — Wade has played the most, 893 after Friday’s game in Phoenix. But he’ll be the fourth person to play career game No. 1,000 while wearing a Miami uniform, joining Rashard Lewis in 2013, Shaquille O’Neal in 2007 and Danny Schayes in 1996.“He’s showed an incredible amount of perseverance and resiliency,” Spoelstra said. “That might be one of the main things that I’ll preach and teach to young players, to be able to show the grit it takes. The second thing, which is just as important about Dwyane, is he reinvented himself and committed so much off the court so that he could perform and be healthy and play how he wanted to play.”The 1,000th game is just one part of a most significant trip to Los Angeles for Wade.His newborn daughter, Kaavia James Union Wade, is there with his wife Gabrielle Union, so the trip to L.A. is a chance for Wade to see them for the first time in a couple of weeks. And on Monday, Wade and LeBron James — both members of the 2003 draft class, longtime friends, then teammates in Miami and Cleveland — could share a court for the final time when the Heat visit the Los Angeles Lakers.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. ‘Mia’: Rom-com with a cause a career-boosting showcase for Coleen Garcia Wade is in line to become the 15th active player to appear in 1,000 regular-season games, the milestone he’ll hit assuming he plays Saturday night when the Miami Heat visit the Los Angeles Clippers.“I don’t even know the significance of 1,000 games,” Wade said. “I don’t know if it’s a big deal. I think it’s just another number.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissThe Heat might disagree with that.Heat coach Erik Spoelstra didn’t know Wade was nearing the milestone until earlier this week, and got wide-eyed when told that Wade had appeared in so many games.

No.13 lucky for Orlando Bloom Wade and James will exchange jerseys after that game Monday. Wade has exchanged several with opponents already this season, but doing so with James will be particularly poignant.“To be able to have that last matchup, I think for both me and LeBron, it’ll be cool,” Wade said. “We’ll have a moment at the end of the game to exchange jerseys and talk. When I decided that the jersey exchange was something I wanted to do, LeBron, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony were originally going to be the only guys I did it with. Then it took on a life of its own, but doing it with LeBron, it will be special.”Wade owns most of the Heat career records, is No. 30 on the NBA’s all-time scoring list and has a legacy that was secured long ago.The only stat he’s still chasing is blocks — he’s No. 2 on the all-time blocks list by a guard, looking up at only Michael Jordan and the 893 blocks he had in his legendary career. And in his 16th and final season before retirement, Wade — who has 857 — still has enough time to catch Jordan.“I just want to see if I can get the block record,” Wade said. “Everything else, I’m good. I’ve got Heat records. I got to 20,000 points and all these things. Things like 1,000 games are so cool when they happen, but I don’t really focus on things like that. I’ve just been blessed enough to be talented enough, long enough, to do this.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade (3) drives around Phoenix Suns forward Trevor Ariza during the first half of an NBA basketball game Friday, Dec. 7, 2018, in Phoenix.

Why Man United fans should not be surprised Lukaku is not scoring this season

first_img Green reveals how he confronted Sarri after Chelsea’s 6-0 defeat at Man City 4 Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ Sky Sports presenter apologises for remarks made during Neville’s racism discussion But regular goal droughts are something he has become accustomed to, as Everton fans will agree gameday cracker BEST OF Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update Lukaku looks a shadow of the player who lit up the World Cup Romelu Lukaku is currently enduring a 13-hour barren run in front of goal for Manchester United.The Belgium international arrived back from a World Cup where he shone for Roberto Martinez’s men, scoring four goals to lead his country to third place. Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions Lukaku scored four times in Russia for Belgium revealed LATEST Most Popular Football Stories Gerrard launches furious touchline outburst as horror tackle on Barisic sparks chaos The hold up play and ability to bully defenders he exhibited in Russia feels like a lifetime away now though, with the 25-year-old not having scored for the Red Devils since September 15 when he netted at Watford.His questionable first touch and poor link up play in recent weeks have lead to criticism online from some fans, with United legends Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand also slamming the striker for his play.The £75million man is set to be given another chance by boss Jose Mourinho against former club Everton on Sunday, but he has worryingly only forced three saves from opposition goalkeepers during his goal drought.But, as Toffees fans will attest, this is not all too unusual for Lukaku. The 25-year-old scored against his former side last season at Old Trafford SORRY 4 latest 4 Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT scrap 4 His record of 31 goals in 64 games since his move last summer prove he is a goalscorer. But, unlike leading marksmen Harry Kane or Sergio Aguero, the goals are scattered sporadically and come in bunches rather in consecutive games.Aside from his final season at Everton, when his longest run without a goal was four games, Lukaku regularly ploughed through lengthy periods when his form deserted him.In 2013-14, he scored just once in 10 games during the middle of the campaign. The following year, he endured a six-match goalless streak and had also only managed four goals by November.During the 2015-16 season, Lukaku went 18 hours of football without a goal for Everton, before netting a 11-minute hat-trick away to Sunderland. He followed that up by failing to score a single Premier League goal after March 5. tense The average first-team salaries at every Premier League club in 2019 To compare him to the aforementioned strikers, Kane averages 0.7 goals per game, while Aguero manages 0.69. Lukaku’s is 0.46.Last season, the Belgian netted against his former side at Old Trafford and duly responded by silencing the away supporters tucked up in the corner of the South Stand.A repeat performance will go a long way to proving he has what it takes to still be the main man in Manchester.last_img read more
