It’s the stretch run of the NBA’s off-season. Training camp is still a few weeks away, with pre-season games and the start of the 2015-2016 Regular Season to rapidly follow, but the players are starting to go a little stir-crazy. For men whose competitive juices never stop flowing, finding an outlet when there’s no organized basketball to play can be a challenge.
Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade chose to stoke his competitive fire in a game of dodgeball. Sounds good, right? Except when a professional athlete launches fastballs at a group of sock company employees, the results can be less than desirable.
Wade took no prisoners on the dodgeball court, launching a ball into the gut of a female player on the opposing team. She had absolutely no chance to stop it. She looked OK, but Wade may want to chill out on competitive sports with mere mortals until training camp tips off.
