Earlier in the week we were praising 34 year old Dwyane Wade for showing he still had some hops. Last night, 26 year old Jonathon Simmons had the man once known as The Flash looking a little like that one uncle always challenging younger kids at family reunions to a race. And just like that one uncle, Wade tried to cheat by grabbing Simmons jersey.
With the exception of this play, Wade did look pretty good against the Spurs and finished with a team-high 20 points on 9 of 12 shooting. Simmons also looked good with 10 points on 5 of 9 shooting in just 23 minutes.
Simmons’ journey to the league might not have been as fast as he is on the court but he’s here now and making the most of it.
