As the Miami Heat powered to their most important win of the year in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Dwyane Wade stepped up with one of his best postseason performances. LeBron James led the way for Miami with 32 points and 8 rebounds, but Wade's showing was just as critical in the deciding game. He had 21 points and grabbed 9 rebounds as the Heat finished off the Pacers with a final of 99-76.
Before last night's win, Wade was in a bit of an offensive slump, but then everything suddenly came together at the right time. For Game 7, he rotated between two Li-Ning signature models: the Way of Wade and the postseason-ready Way of Wade Encore. Is it possible that Wade picked up this sneaker-swap idea from LeBron James? We've seen LeBron's sneaker swaps result in undeniable improvements, so it's certainly possible Wade was channeling his superstar teammate.
Stay tuned for availability info on the Li-Ning Way of Wade Encore.
