Dwyane Wade explains the secret to his incredible performance in the playoff semifinals

Published Add your comment

Dwyane Wade, like every other player at 34 to have ever competed in the NBA, has experienced his share of injuries.

With those problems came the assertion from fans that he is no longer the same player and maybe it was time to call it a day. It happens to the best - father time is inevitable.

However, the former Miami Heat shooting guard showed he still has a lot left to offer the league during the playoffs, producing an incredible effort - in vain - during the mammoth seven-game series with the Toronto Raptors.

Wade averaged 27.3 points per game against Canada's only franchise and shot 49 percent from the field. That was almost identical to his stats ten years prior when he - alongside Shaquille O'Neal - led the Heat to their first NBA title.
