Dwyane Wade Aiming to Break 1 Final Milestone Held by Michael Jordan Before He Retires
- Updated: March 4, 2019
Yet, the 6-foot-4 guard is aiming to break one more record before he officially calls it quits. Wade wants to surpass Michael Jordan for most blocked shots by a guard in NBA history.
Coming into Monday night’s contest against the Atlanta Hawks, Wade is one block shy from tying Jordan in career blocks, including the regular season and playoffs. The three-time champion has totaled 1,050 blocks (875 in the regular season and 175 in the postseason in his career).
Jordan, on the other hand, finished his career with 1,051 blocks (893 in the regular season and 158 in the postseason).
While Wade is expected to easily break the overall record, the 37-year-old is gunning down the regular season blocks record, per Anthony Chaing of the Miami Herald:
“That’s it. There’s nothing else for me,” Wade said of passing Jordan for most blocks ever by a guard. “If I would have played another two years, I would have been looking at the 5,000 rebounds. I would have been looking at that one. But that’s it.”
Although it won’t be the end of the world if Wade doesn’t accomplish the milestone, it would be a terrific achievement to add to his decorated resume. The Heat’s all-time leading scorer is having a fantastic final season in the league, putting up 14.2 points, 4.2 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game.
In the process, Wade has dazzled fans with clutch shots, superb shooting stretches and impressive defense.
