MIAMI Dwyane Wade is a 10-year veteran who turned 30 earlier this year. He just wrote a book about the responsibilities of parenthood.
But Wade said he still makes mistakes.
The Miami Heat guard said he made the wrong decision when he pushed to play last Wednesday at the Los Angeles Clippers after having suffered a left foot sprain two days earlier at Houston. He aggravated the injury against the Clippers, and missed the next two games.
Its a big game you want to play, you want to be in it, Wade said after practice Monday about the 107-100 loss in the nationally televised game. I didnt do myself any justice playing in the game.
So I could have used the extra rest So you look back and say, Ah, I maybe should have done that. But you make mistakes and you move on from them.
Had he not played against the Clippers, Wade believes he still would have missed last Thursdays game at Denver but might have been able to come back Saturday at Phoenix. But the Heat were able to win both games...
