Dwyane Wade Needs One Block to Break NBA Record

"I understood our team wasn’t big," he said. "But I knew I always had pretty good timing and athletic ability. So I said, ‘Why not try?’"

The next time he blocks a shot, Wade will establish himself as the NBA’s ultimate little big man.

With one more blocked shot, he will become the first NBA player listed at 6-4 or shorter to block at least 100 shots in a season, since the league began tracking blocks in 1973-74. He enters tonight’s game at Indiana tied with former jumping-jack dunker David Thompson, who also stood 6-4, for the current record of 99.,0,2409123.story
