The guard, widely known for his 5-foot-9 stature, has always seen himself at the short end of jokes during his rise to stardom. He’s achieved a lot of recognition despite his height, primarily during his tenure with the Boston Celtics where he gained his first and second All-Star nods.
Thomas will have his chance to have the last laugh later on this season on Jan. 8, when the Heat visit Pepsi Center to take on the Denver Nuggets. He’s currently rehabbing from season-ending hip surgery and should be hopeful for game action by then.
Wade will have a bit more time to continue his humorous antics, as he plans to miss the Heat’s upcoming game against the Indiana Pacers. Given his connection with LeBron James, who is on the newly formed Los Angeles Lakers squad, Wade is likely to return for Sunday’s contest against the Lakers.
