LeBron James Called this Dwyane Wade Game-Winner Right Before It Happened (Video)
It’s not just incredible athleticism that makes LeBron James so great. It’s his intelligence and vision on the basketball court. He sees things other players do not see and can predict what’s going to happen.
But let’s put this talk of LeBron’s vision on hold for a moment and talk about his buddy, Dwyane Wade. Everyone thought the Miami Heat guard was pretty much done after last year. His knees were just giving out. He’d never be the workhorse who put his team on his back and carried them to victory again. And yet, somehow, D-Wade has turned back the clock this year and performed brilliantly. The guy’s averaging 21.6 points and 5.2 assists per game, and he’s racked up a 22.5 PER. More importantly, in the last week he’s single-handedly stolen games, first from the Cavaliers and then, on Wednesday night, from the Blazers.
Just check out this Dwyane Wade game-winner. Miami fighting for a playoff spot in the East. Half a minute left to play against Portland. Game tied at 104. Wade brings the ball down the court, let’s time run off the clock, and then darts around a pick to hit a beautiful right-to-left, step-back jumper that gives the Heat the lead with 13 seconds to play.
And that brings us back to LeBron. You see, he was watching the end of that game in the Cleveland clubhouse. And according to Cleveland.com reporter Chris Fedor, he called the Dwyane Wade game-winner exactly as it happened.

Apparently LeBron’s court vision works on TV, too.
