Turning Back the Clock: Dwyane Wade Reminds He's the Flash

Dwyane Wade Reminds He's the Flash


Wade leads the Heat to a Game 2 victory as series shifts to Miami

After getting kicked in the rear by the younger and inexperienced Philadelphia 76ers to open the first round of the playoffs, the Miami Heat knew they will need their superhero now more than ever if they expect to move onto the next round. And fortunately, the Flash showed up in Game 2 and he did what he does best: turn back the clock and play like he isn't 36 years old.

In an astonishing display of what could be one of his best and probably one of the last few playoff performances we'd ever see of him because he hasn't decided on his future just yet, Dwyane Wade scored 28 points while overtaking Larry Bird for the 10th place in the all-time playoff scoring list. And when Philadelphia attempted one more run in hopes of going to South Beach with a 2-0 series lead, the Flash contributed from almost every angle whether in the form of baskets, assists and, free throws. It's a vintage display from a guy who experienced two forgettable seasons with the Chicago Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers before being sent back to the Heat at the 2018 trade deadline.

And frankly, the Heat won from that trade because they got back their beloved superhero who lead the Heat to a championship back in 2006.

Now that he's back with Miami and playing alongside Goran Dragic and Hassan Whiteside, this might be Wade's one last chance at another championship. And facing an inexperienced team like the Sixers in the first round, a team who won 17 straight games before Game 2?  It's another test for the Flash.


Wade Needs More Help

With Joel Embiid expected to return to the Sixers in Game 3, the Heat must now provide the needed reinforcements for Wade and company and it all starts with Hassan Whiteside. In Game 2, Whiteside only scored 4 points while grabbing 5 rebounds in just 15 minutes. 

In addition to this, the rest of the Heat must figure out a way to shut down the Sixers' super rookie, Ben Simmons who almost had a triple-double in Game 2. With Joel Embiid returning, that adds another problem to Erik Spoelstra because it means that Simmons has another center to pass the ball to. And we all know how great Ben Simmons is in passing the ball, right? 


Conclusion

Can the Flash continue tapping into the Speed Force and lead the Heat forward against the Sixers? Some pundits are saying that the youth of Philadelphia players is an advantage but Miami still has the upper hand in terms of experience playing in the playoffs. Ben Simmons may be the Rookie of the Year but the Heat have their superhero of their own. His name is Dwyane Wade.

Will Lonzo Ball Ever Develop His Offensive Game?

In the Lakers' game against the Miami Heat, there were two plays that caught my attention. One was that outlet pass by LeBron James to an open Lonzo Ball who was open for a layup. No one was even close to defending Lonzo at the point and he chose to softly lay it in which […] MoreThe post Will Lonzo Ball Ever Develop His Offensive Game? appeared first on Powcast Sports.

Details on Kiefer Ravena's PBA Salary Revealed, 350,000 a Month!

It's huge! Kiefer Ravena's salary means a lot is expected from him

If NLEX could offer him more then maybe they would but for now, Keifer Ravena would have to settle for a maximum rookie salary that's worth 8.5 million in three years. 
The 2nd overall pick of this year's draft may have waited to get into the PBA but that delay was worth it after the team who drafted him showed big confidence and locked him for three years. 
As per our source, his salary on a monthly basis will be at  P150,000 a month for the first year. Then will go to P225,000 and the last year would be at  P350,000. The salary isn't the highest as Terrence Romeo and JunMar Fajardo, two of the biggest names in the PBA is getting more or less half a million every month.








At 24 years old, however, the former Ateneo star is only one of the two players this rookie class who's getting a max deal, one of which is Rookie Christian Standhardinger.
