In a recent interview with House of Highlights founder Omar Raja, Wade explained the motivation behind the truly memorable jam.
“The difficulty on this dunk was a little tougher,” Wade admitted to Raja. “But the cool thing about this one was, as I came out and said on Twitter recently was, Perk dunked when we played them a little while before this. I was like by the rim and he kicked his legs and and kicked me in the back of the head and everything. So I was looking at him like, ‘Alright bro.’ So when they came to Miami, I was going for him.”
It’s fascinating to learn about the motivation behind such a memorable dunk, and knowing Wade’s competitive spirit, it’s no surprise learning what the motivation actually was.
While Wade’s NBA career is a thing of the past, both he and his fans have a seemingly endless number of highlights to go back to and enjoy whenever they’re missing the glory days.
