“D-Wade” has always been known as one of the best blocking guards in history and with a reason. He has continued to maintain a solid average for blocks throughout his entire career, even averaging over 1 blocks since 2006-2012. Since then, even though he aged and his athleticism went down he maintained his average on about 0.7 blocks per game.
But on this particular sequence, Wade showed why he is maybe the greatest blocker amongst guards in NBA History. In a 2011 regular season game the Miami Heat were hosting the visiting Memphis Grizzlies. Early in the 1st quarter, Wade began with his show.
To start thing off he blocked Tony Allen on a jump shot as the Heat got the ball and went to the offense. After a miss by Chalmers, the Grizzlies went on the break as Allen was on a path for an easy layup but “D-Wade” chased him down and blocked him once again.
The ball would eventually end up again at the end of Tony Allen who once again tried to go strong but it didn’t help. Wade blocked him for the third time in a matter of 30 seconds. You could say he was just clowning him at the moment.
Never the less in all that fumble the crowd was already going crazy as Wade tried an acrobatic layup but it wouldn’t fall. The Grizzlies tried to take advantage of the 5 on 4 opportunity and possibly tried to calm the crowd down, but as they were too slow Wade trailed the play as he came out of nowhere to block Sam Young’s jump shot from behind for his 4th block in less than a minute.
The American Airlines Arena went crazy once again. Their star managed to block Tony Allen three times and to add to it Sam Young in less than a minute, as he earned a standing ovation.
