Every senior player in any sport deserve respect! No arguments!
Dwyane Wade deserve respect. After all he is the face of Heat franchise for a long time with multiple championship rings on his hand. Wade deserve respect on the court. Heat losing to Philly on previous 17 encounters does not matter. A motivated Wade is more dangerous than any player on the court. Kevin Hart can make you laugh but on Monday (April 16th) at Game 2 at Philly’s home court, he chose to motivate Wade through his trash talk and with his court side body language.
Every quarter, Wade looked more locked on the game and in fact explosive. After Wade is traded from Cleveland, mid-season, this may be his best performance and when it mattered the most. Philly came close within 2 points in 3rd quarter and when Wade was sitting. When Wade checked in again for the last time, it was all different. It was tough to guard him. His shots were going in with so much of confidence. Wade’s 28 point performance is what Heat needed to level the series.
Senior player, Dwyane Wade deserve respect. Kevin Hart should stop motivating Wade with his talk and court side actions. Kevin Hart should also remember that, only Wade can handle the ball!
Cavaliers were not ready for Game 1 for sure. Starting Jeff Green seem to be not working from scoring perspective. Above all, this team is completely new and Playoffs experience is lacking. Again, Game #1 is an eye opener for all and LeBron and his new crew will bounce back in Game #2.
LeBron never lost the First Round in his entire playoff experience. Pacers will challenge this and for how long is the real question. Not just Pacers entire East will challenge LeBron's will this year. Raptors are doing good and Sixers are doing great and both feel like real Eastern Conference contenders.
As of today (Tuesday, Apr 16th), Cavs starters seem to be George Hill, Rodney Hood, LeBron James, Jeff Green and Kevin Love, same as Game #1. Cavs bench is expected to spark the offense and play a crucial role.
As Cavs Fans are we ready to hit the panic button yet? As long as LeBron and defense start coming alive, it all comes down to What Ever It Takes!
