Reinventing Wade: At 36, another new role awaits Heat great

first_imgPhivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Wade — one of the greatest shooting guards to play the game — was drafted by Miami as a point guard. He became a superstar shooting guard and NBA Finals MVP, a league scoring champion and absolute first option in Miami until he wooed LeBron James and Chris Bosh to the Heat to end his days as the lone Alpha dog. He tried to emulate the Miami days in Chicago, tried to fill a role in Cleveland.And now, this.Wade thinks he’s changed teams for the final time. Whether he plays past this season or not, this is his role until the end. It is the final reinvention.“I want to be my best self,” Wade said. “If I’m on the bench to start games, if I’m on the bench to end games, as long as we’re winning. That’s all I care about.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next “It really is similar to the role he had with the USA team,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “He’d come in and be a force of nature.”There have been some signature moments already in his second stint with the Heat. Wade’s winner against Philadelphia last week was the 12th of his career. In the first 29 seasons of Heat basketball, only two players posted consecutive 25-point games off the bench. Wade is already the third name on that list.At home against Detroit on Saturday, he was serenaded with “M-V-P” and “We Want Wade” chants.“The guy is just a great player,” said Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy, Wade’s first coach with the Heat in 2003. “Has been since he walked into the league. To still be doing what he’s done these last few games at this point in his career is pretty impressive. But he’s back home. He’s back home. I think he probably feels that.”Wade agrees, saying the return has been an energy boost.It has also been emotional, as South Florida tries to recover from last month’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High that left 17 people dead — including a boy whose parents chose to bury him in a Wade jersey. Wade met with the family of that teen, Heat fan Joaquin Oliver, on Saturday night .“It’s bigger than basketball,” Wade said.It’s also just like old times, albeit in a new role.“The thing about Dwyane, he’s probably adapted and evolved and changed his role as much as any star player in this game,” Spoelstra said. “That is part of his brilliance. He figures things out.”He’s done that since Day 1 in Miami.

Rob Foldy/Getty Images/AFPMIAMI — This is not the first reinvention of Dwyane Wade.Or the second.ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacsoncenter_img Wade is clearly going to play a sizable role in the Heat playoff push, in all sorts of ways. The savvy veteran who can be a de facto assistant coach in the locker room, on the practice floor and on the bench.The guy who makes crowds in Miami roar simply by removing his warmups and walking to the scorer’s table to check into games. The closer, who’ll be on the floor in the most critical minutes of games.He’s just not starting.“I started embracing it when I was at the previous team, because I’m a winner,” Wade said. “I’m always about doing whatever I can to help whatever team I’m on be in its best position. I’ve done that my whole life. It’s not just now. I’ve done it in the Olympics, I’ve done it all over the place. It takes nothing away from who I am or what I’ve accomplished.”Before now, the last season that Wade played and wasn’t a full-time starter was the summer of 2008 — on the U.S. Olympic team at the Beijing Games, where he was the leading scorer on the way to a gold medal. Prior to that, he thinks it was his fourth-grade team.ADVERTISEMENT Cavs’ Thompson to miss several games with sprained ankle MOST READ Or the third.His 15 NBA seasons have been a series of role changes — the latest being where the most celebrated player in Miami Heat history watches five younger players start games while he waits for a chance to enter as a sub.

I came off the bench for a long time before y’all knew who I was. My ego is not too big at this point. I’m 36 years old. These guys are the future of this organization and this team. I’m definitely not the future. I’m cool with that.”Still, he’s vital to Miami’s hopes right now.

CDC educates children on disaster preparedness

first_imgThe Civil Defence Commission (CDC) held a disaster preparedness camp on Saturday for children ranging between the ages of five and eleven.Some of the children participating in a fire drillThe camp aimed at teaching children the basics in what to do in the event of a disaster. They were taught first-aid, fire safety, water sanitation and hygiene, and solid waste management.The one-day camp was held at Camp Ayanganna, the Guyana Defence Force Headquarters, Georgetown, under the theme “Planting the Seed for Disaster Risk Reduction and Preparedness”.The camp is the first of its kind and was sponsored by Digicel (Guyana) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).Head of CDC, Retired Colonel Chabilall Ramsarup said that the aim of the camp is to ensure that children are aware and equipped to handle disasters. The Retired Colonel pointed out that many times children lose their lives because they do not know what to do when a disaster such as a fire, occurs.“I hope we can manage them and ensure that the seeds are really planted on fertile soil so that they can go home, teach their parents, brothers and sisters and schoolmates,” Colonel Ramsarup stated.“We are hoping to do it every August. We don’t just want to do it in Georgetown, we also want to go out in other regions,” he added.UNICEF representative for disaster risk management Ian Jones said that it is important for children to be participating in such camps. Jones noted that UNICEF continues to play a major role in the lives of children.“We are very much involved in making sure that children are fully involved in disaster management,” Jones stated.During the camp, the children were formed into groups and given small prizes after completion of each task.The CDC continues to implement Disaster Risk Management Systems (RDRMS) across all 10 administrative regions of Guyana.last_img read more

first_imgA porter was killed on Saturday after he was crushed by a container truck in the vicinity of Karakara and the Guyana Forestry Commission toll booth at Mackenzie, Linden.The container truck which ran over the porterThe dead porter has been identified as J Anthony. According to police, the motor lorry, GSS 1407 along with trailer TMM 2242 which was driven by a 28-year-old man of Ogle Street, Triumph, East Coast Demerara (ECD), was proceeding east along the northern side of the Karakara public road when the porter disembarked to pay the toll.The police said that after doing so, the porter reportedly jumped back on the lorry’s gas tank, which is situated on the left side of the front portion of the truck while it was still in motion.The porter reportedly lost his grip, causing him to fall onto the roadway between the lorry and the trailer and was run over by the trailer. As a result, the porter received injuries about his body.After the incident, the body remained on the roadway for some time before a doctor from the Linden Hospital Complex went to the scene and pronounced him dead.Speaking with this publication, an employee at the toll booth said that some drivers of container trucks, in an effort to avoid paying the exact toll, would usually send their porters to the toll booth with less money.The employee alleged that the drivers would then drive slowly while the porter pays and afterwards the porter would quickly make their way back to the truck which would then drive off.The driver was taken into Police custody where he is said to be assisting with the investigation.last_img read more

Unable to keep up, Hull hangs it up

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “I realized I wasn’t who I thought I was,’ Hull said. “I wasn’t Brett Hull at 30 or 35 even. I was 41 years old and after a year and a half layoff, I didn’t have what it took to play in the new game that was so exciting.’ Hull’s announcement came two hours before the Coyotes faced his former team, the Detroit Red Wings. “The National Hockey League will miss Brett’s skill, his scoring touch and his fun-loving attitude,’ NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said. “He was a splendid athlete, a passionate player and someone who never hesitated to speak his mind. His achievements further cement the Hull family legacy of hockey greatness.’ Hull signed with the Coyotes on Aug. 6, 2004, lured by Gretzky, who was leaning toward becoming the team’s coach. There was no 2004-05 season, though, because of the NHL lockout. When Hull joined the team, he found it hard to keep up with the younger players. Only Gretzky and Gordie Howe have more goals than Hull in NHL history. Brett Hull choked back emotion and thanked “everyone who ever touched my life in the game,’ announcing his retirement on Saturday from a career that left him the third-leading goal scorer in NHL history. “I wish no one had to do this because it’s so hard, it’s hard because you never think you’re going to grow older and be unable to live up to the expectations you set for yourself,’ he said. The 41-year-old Hull, who had one assist in five games for the Phoenix Coyotes in his 20th NHL season, had to stop to gain control of his emotions, with his three children, fiance and several former teammates looking on. “There’s an old expression, and I don’t know who said it `The mind is willing but the body isn’t,’ Hull said. center_img “I was probably more emotional today about him retiring than I was the day I retired,’ Gretzky said. “It’s a new beginning for him and his family. I told him today he’s going to look forward with a lot of great times with his kids and his fiance. His records speak for themselves. He’s a consummate professional. My dad told me today that I ran an 800-goal scorer out of hockey.’ Before the Coyotes’ home opener a week ago, Hull’s father, Hall of Famer Bobby Hull, had his number “un-retired’ so his son Brett could wear it this season. The Hulls are the only father-son players to each top 600 goals. Hull had 741 goals and 650 assists in the former Minnesota-Duluth star’s long NHL career with Calgary, St. Louis, Dallas, Detroit and Phoenix. He joined the league with Calgary in the 1986 Stanley Cup finals. He is second on the NHL career list for power- play goals (265) and third in game-winning goals (110). 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Ranking Big 12 teams’ chances of winning the conference

first_imgDavid Glidden fights off an Iowa State defender (USATSI)David Glidden fights off an Iowa State defender (USATSI)I’ve been thinking for a while about how to do this. Everybody has their method — which team they consider best, which team has the best resume, which team has the best mascot, etc. — and none is right or wrong (this is the Internet, dang it!)I think I’ve settled on some sort of hybrid “which team has the best chance to win the Big 12” based on past performance (TCU over OU) and expected result (OU has two road games left).That might change next week but for now that’s what it is.Let’s get to work.1. Oklahoma: I talked an amount of crap on Twitter Saturday that would have made Floyd Mayweather raise an eyebrow but it’s pretty clear to me that OU is still going to win the conference.They get Baylor, OSU, and Kansas State at home and the only dangerous road game is at Tech (unless you think going to Iowa State is a dangerous road game………………………………………………………….)Losing one doesn’t matter unless the team you lost to is going to lose fewer than two and TCU isn’t going to lose fewer than two.2. Baylor: They can afford a stumble at West Virginia or in Waco against OSU or Kansas State but the road to the Big 12 title figuratively goes through Norman this year and Baylor won’t be the favorite.3. TCU: They’ve certainly positioned themselves nicely but they’ll have to win three of at Baylor, OSU at home, K-State at home, and at Texas and not have any major gaffes AND probably hope OU beats Baylor in Norman.That’s a lot to ask for from a team that thinks its a good idea to camouflage its kick returners in the end zone.4. Kansas State: Snyder may be a wizard but I’m not sure he’s capable of flipping a schedule that includes trips to Waco, Norman, and Ft. Worth. Yikes.5. Oklahoma State: [looks at schedule, looks at offensive line, looks back at schedule]6. West Virginia: They needed to beat OU at home and they didn’t.7. Texas: at Kansas State, at OSU, and OU in Dallas? No.8. Texas Tech: How long is that Kingsbury leash? It’s really, really long, right? Right?!9. Iowa State: The only 0-3 team so far. They’ll be mathematically eliminated before November.10. Kansas basketball: Why not?11. Kansas football: Getting Kansas at like 4 million-to-1 right now to win the Big 12 and then watching them win the Big 12 would be the greatest gambling story ever.Totally Tickets is your source for Oklahoma State football tickets.
