For the next instalment of Throwline Thursdays, we pay homage to Dwyane Wade, affectionately known as ‘Flash’, who stands out as one of the NBA's most dynamic shooting guards.

Throwline Thursdays: Dwyane Wade

His tenure, primarily with the Miami Heat, was marked by exceptional athleticism, scoring prowess, and clutch playmaking. Wade's ability to drive to the basket and perform under pressure, coupled with his leadership, was central to the Heat's multiple championship victories. His playing style, characterised by agility and a flair for dramatic plays, made him a favourite among fans and a respected figure among peers.


The 2009 poster dunk over Anderson Varejao is a defining moment in Wade's illustrious career and a memorable highlight in NBA history. This play, set against the backdrop of stars like Shaquille O'Neal and LeBron James, epitomised Wade's fearless and athletic play style.

The dunk, which occurred during a high-stakes game broadcast live on TNT, was not just an athletic spectacle; it was a statement. The presence of legends like Michael Jordan and Pat Riley added to its significance, with Reggie Miller's iconic "Welcome to your Kodak moment" remark capturing its lasting impact.

This moment encapsulates Wade's competitive spirit and ability to captivate audiences. Despite the Miami Heat not winning that game, Wade's performance, including a game-high 36 points, underscored his elite status. The subsequent technical foul exchange between Wade and Varejao reflected the intense nature of the competition.

The poster dunk over Varejao remains emblematic of Dwyane Wade's legacy—a blend of skill, athleticism, and an indomitable competitive spirit that created unforgettable moments in basketball history.

Let’s take a closer look at this moment below:
