NBA All-Star Dwyane Wade struggled in four regular season meetings between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics, but his first post-season performance against the Celts was a different story. In Sunday’s second round opening match-up, D-Wade had a breakthrough game, shooting an impressive 14 for 21 from the field and scoring a game-high 38 points.
Wade didn’t allow his troubles in the earlier games to infect his Playoff mindset. He was aggressive on offense, and he pulled himself out of his shooting slump.
Besides his mental toughness and outrageous explosiveness, what makes Wade one of the best guards ever to play the game is his off-season dedication to improving his skills—year after year.
Last summer, STACK met up with the Heat superstar and his trainer, Tim Grover, at ATTACK Athletics in Chicago to get a first-hand look at his off-season on-court drills .
