Top 10 LeBron James-Dwyane Wade Highlights from 2011-12
The Miami Heat were arguably the most exciting team to watch last season. Fans, whether at home or in the arena, found themselves on the edge of their seats when LeBron James and company took the floor.
Thought it'd be a good time to take a look at some of the best plays between this dynamic duo last year. During a shortened season, I might add. We are undoubtedly in store for more great connections between these two elite players as they attempt to defend their title with a little flash.
One of Many Alley-Oops
Here against the Celtics, we simply see Wade throw it up for James and watch in awe as he floats to the rim with grace, yet finishes with unmatched power.
This has become quite the familiar scene for Heat fans and their opponents, which will become quite obvious as you continue to click through the slideshow.
It's almost like deja-vu. Once again, Wade and James get out on the break and Wade throws it up for his boy.
I don't know about you, but these are the last two guys I would want to see coming at me on a fast break. Clearly, I don't need to explain why; just watch the helpless defenders look to the rim and realize there is nothing they can do.
Even Chris Bosh got involved in this one. This play really shows the true potential of how good the Big Three still have the potential to be.
Bosh with the big block, James with the hustle, save and rocket pass down the court to Wade, who decided not to get back after the missed shot (typical).
Wade with the block, James with the block, and surprisingly, Wade with the sprint down court.
The chemistry between these two guys is more than apparent here. You really can't afford not to get back when playing the Heat.
Here's one of many examples that shows why.
Knicks, Just Go Home
James and Wade put on a show against the Knicks.
Dunk after dunk after dunk. New York had no answers.
There were so many great plays between Wade and James during this game that I decided just to give you a highlight of the entire match. Watch it; you won't be sorry.
Just Throw It Up
Nice touch here with the left-handed pass from Wade, but at the end of the day, if you throw it anywhere towards the rim, it's safe to say that James will go get it just like he did this one.
The one-hand finish is always a good look for the King.
This play may not have been set up on purpose, but it's just one of those things that ended up working out thanks to some scary athleticism from Wade and a rare missed layup from James.
They've always got each other's back.
For the Win
Although this play would've been sweeter if Wade dunked the ball, it's still a great play and great call out of the timeout from Spoelstra and his coaching staff.
However, it was Wade and James who went out and executed it to perfection for the win.
This is by far my favorite connection between Wade and James. At this point in their time together, they've done this a few times to say the least.
Wade literally just throws the ball towards the rim and turns to the crowd because he knows he can count on James for a nasty finish at the rim.
James showed up his 40-inch vert and looked down on the rim and spectators as he punished the basket like it stole something.
On the first day of the shortened season, LeBron and Wade showed us something rarely seen in the NBA: a double-tap alley-oop.
I guess a simple lob was just too mainstream for these guys.
