After last night's crazy game-winning shot vs the Warriors, today seems like a good moment to talk about the legend himself, Dwyane Wade. As a 6-4 guard, although he's always been very athletic and a leaper, it's pretty impressive he had a 152 dunk season in 2005-06, when the Heat won the ring (2.03 dunks/game). That was his peak as a dunker (in his younger years he had a total of 5 seasons with 100+ dunks), and since then his dunks have gone down progressively, as it usually happens when players enter their 30s. Last season, Wade delievered 20 dunks, and so far this season he has 9 in 49 games. As a guard, he has an impressive career average of 1.06 dunks/game (1089 in 1031 games). In the playoffs, it's a similar scenario (179 dunks in 177 games). D-Wade will definetly be missed in this league, and from a dunk-perspective, his highlight dunks won't be forgotten!
