Dwyane Wade, the South Side native and standout at Richards High School, has been ailing. The aging Miami Heat star – and sometimes free agent tease for the Chicago Bulls – has been on the shelf for seven games with a hamstring injury.
Know what makes an injury feel better real quick? Having a good game – he led the Heat to a come-from-behind victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday night.
Know what may or may not help that healing process? When your movie star wife, Gabrielle Union, steals the post-game mic to criticize your free throws and call you a “geezer.”
Wade, though, showed he can take a joke from Union, who co-stars in the upcoming Chris Rock movie “Top 5”. Of course, he’s probably used to having a wife steal the microphone and the spotlight by now, though this ended much more amicably than previous experience.
