One day after having an “out of body experience” by dunking on Alex Len, 35-year old Dwyane Wade almost pulled off his first triple-double with the Bulls. The reason why he wasn’t able to get his 10th board to go with 20 points and 10 assists is because teammate Cristiano Felicio stole Wade’s rebound in the final second of the game.
When asked how he didn’t get a triple-double during the postgame interview, Wade jokingly replied, “My teammate didn’t want me to be great. It’s all good.”
Felicio hilariously tweeted, “I did not know!!!” afterwards.
Well, at least Jimmy Butler got a triple-double: 18 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists
Watching Wade not get his triple-double in the final seconds reminds me of the time Andray Blatche was so desperate to get a final rebound for a triple-double he even asked an opposing player if he could get the board. He never did get the triple-double. If he would have, he would joined the list of names like Anthony Bowie, Ricky Davis and JaVale McGee for the “worst triple-doubles ever.”
