At 35 years old, Dwyane Wade is not the athletic player he once was. Wade is still great, but his athleticism is definitely not what it used to be. This was quite evident in Game 1 of the Chicago Bulls‘ first-round matchup against the Boston Celtics on Sunday.
Getting a steal and with only one defender to beat, Wade elevated to throw down a one-handed jam. The only problem was that Wade didn’t jump that high enough and his dunk attempt was blocked by the rim.
Wade may have been able to outrun the Celtics defenders but he clearly wasn’t able to beat Father Time on the play.
