Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade was on the call for the 3-point shootout at All-Star Saturday night. In retrospect, Miami sharpshooter and first-year player Duncan Robinson probably wishes he hadn’t been.
In the moments before Robinson hit his first rack, Wade hyped up the Heat rookie:

Unfortunately, Robinson didn’t exactly make a name for himself. Robinson, making nearly 44 percent of his triples on eight attempts per game this season for the Heat, hit 19 in his first-round showing only to be bested by Devin Booker’s scorching score of 27.
Eventually, Buddy Hield won the contest against Booker and Davis Bertans in the final round. As for Robinson, he’ll certainly be thankful for being able chosen to represent the South Beach franchise in the contest.
Dwyane Wade’s words highlight the sheer improbability of the Heat youngster even taking part in an All-Star Saturday event. Hopefully, we will get word that Duncan Robinson was invited to some parties tonight, after all.
