MIAMI -- Dwyane Wade may claim to not know what Charles Barkley is saying but he sure heard what Josh Smith uttered.
After drilling a jumper over the Atlanta Hawks forward in the fourth quarter Monday night at AmericanAirlines Arena, the Miami Heat guard backpedaled down the court while nodding.
"He was talking to me," Wade said after his Heat had polished off the Hawks 101-92 in a battle for first place it the Southeast Divison. "That was cool. It was all good. He didn't think I was going to make it. So I had to let him now."
Wade seems determined these days to provide reminders that his best days are not behind him, contrary to what a certain man with avoirdupois issues has been spouting on the air. Barkley regularly has being using his platform as a TNT analyst to rip a guy he used to star alongside in cell-phone commercials.
"I'm not the all-time leading scorer around here for nothing," Wade, in his 10th Heat season, let it be known afte...
BEST OF MAXIM
Mark Jackson believes Dwyane Wade is the third-best shooting guard of all-time.
Charles Barkley called out Dwyane Wade the past two weeks, and LeBron James says the TNT analyst needs to “shut up” now that Wade proved him wrong.
The Miami Heat have appeared on TNT’s nationally televised game the past two Thursdays. Barkley has gone after Wade’s play while discussing the games on “Inside the NBA.” He has said that the Miami Heat guard is older and...
Over the past year or so, many have begun to wonder whether Dwyane Wade’s game is falling off as he gets older. For a player whose game is so based on his athletic ability, it’s a legitimate concern for someone who is now 30 years old.
Charles Barkley is one of the people who believe Wade is already on the downswing, as he has been vocal recently about...
Dwyane Wade is old, well, he’s 30 but he’s playing old. His athleticism has declined and he’s lost a step. It’s nothing to be ashamed of but it explains his mood swings on the court and his transition from legit game to playing dirty like an old man at the Y.
And it started a couple of seasons ago, became apparent during the playoffs last year and is flat out obvious this...
LeBron James has always been one to defer to his teammates – often times to a fault. But after Monday’s game in which the Heat beat the Atlanta Hawks, James came to the defense of teammate Dwyane Wade.
TNT analyst Charles Barkley had criticized Wade on before last Thursday’s Knicks-Heat game, saying that Wade is no longer the same player and doesn’t “explode anymore.”...
Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade is determined to show everyone including TNT analyst Charles Barkley, who often says Wade's game is falling off rapidly, that he is still one of the best.
Wade claims he doesn't hear the criticism from Barkley. "I'm not the all-time leading scorer around here for nothing," said Wade via FOX Sports Florida after going 11 of 13...
LeBron James leaped as high as he can soar. Dwyane Wade shot better than he ever has before.
And when the Miami Heat stars are on their games like that ... ''We probably won't lose,'' James said.
Such was the case Monday night. James scored 27 points, Wade had 26 and the Heat pulled away in the second half to beat the Atlanta Hawks 101-92, improving to 10-1...
MIAMI -- The Miami Heat had enough highlights Saturday that they could joke about lowlights.
That hardly had been the case in the previous two games. The Heat had been stunned by a Washington outfit that was 1-13 and been crushed by 20 points by New York.
When the Heat lose two straight games, that's like five for some teams. But they bounced back Saturday to defeat New Orleans...
Looks like he lent the Heat a helping hand…I mean foot.
Miami and Atlanta met up Monday night in a matchup between the Southeast Division’s top two teams. The Heat walked away with the 101-92 LeBron James’ game high 27 points, Dwyane Wade’s 26 points, and some fancy footwork by referee Karl Lane.

If you walked up to someone on a street in Florida and said a local team was “losing James and Wade,” what would that person think?
Miami Heat fans would likely think that meant saying goodbye to the NBA team’s biggest stars, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
But lucky for Florida fans, the house-cleaning this week involved the Tampa Bay Rays and the loss of James Shields and Wade...
