The Wade-ing Game

It's only a matter of time until the season is over and the NBA's MVP is decided.

In the meantime, Dwayne Wade is going to go ahead and score a little bit.

Today, while his alma mater fell out of the NCAA race, the Marquette star brought it at the Pistons on their home court and sufficiently smacked them with some Wadeness. He dropped 39 points and 4 very notable blocks, including one special "gimme that!" block with the much taller Antonio "Shoot Some" McDyess.

The Heat were kept cool until D-Wade went into his Wade Bank and made a Wa-deposit all over the Pistons in the third quarter, dropping 14 Wadepoints (similar to Disney Dollars).

The Heat sneaked by in the end, and although they played a starless Pistons team (sans Iverson, Hamilton and Wallace), you cannot dispute Wade's great year.

While the game was a great Wade to see some Wade, it was the game's halftime clip that highlighted the man's Wadetivity.

The clip showed how a young boy, who had lost his hands and feet to a bacterial infection that nearly claimed the boy's life, was treated by a special Wade visit to his house. This visit took place the morning after Wade's emphatic 3 OT win against the Bulls, mind you. The smile on that kid's face when he saw your man Wade, and Wade's demeanor around the kid and his family, was too awesome. Could the man be any cooler? Maybe, if he were also a filmmaker. But that's the only way.

So sure, LeBron had a day against the Nets (just another 30 point, 11 rebound, and 8 assist day--boooooooring), but I'll take Wade any day of the week. I don't care much for the MVP race--LeBron will win it, unless something crazy happens and Chris Paul drops 60+ for the last games of the season--but I'm behind Wade all the I can't wait for the playoffs for him to do what he did in 2006. And WIN.

But until then, we play the Wade-ing game.
