LeBron and Wade both participated in a light practice. Spoelstra expects both to play tomorrow.

Lewis, LeBron, Allen, Chalmers, Bosh, Miller, Cole, Battier, Wade having a three-point shooting contest, as LeBron keeps score. #heat

LeBron keeps getting on Chalmers for screwing up his game.

Wade wins. LeBron screams out in approval, for Wade representing the guys who can't shoot. Wade raising arms as he circles court.

And this...

@MiamiHeraldHeat Wade just beat Ray Allen in a three-point contest. Ray is mad, mad, mad. #talknboutpractice
:laugh:

I'd love to be a fly on the wall for these. This is the most epic one I've heard of yet. It included our entire rotation except for UD. Wade is the last person I'd pick to win. He did say earlier in the season he's gonna have to win one eventually.

From Skolnick's blog:

LeBron James’s left knee was still somewhat stiff, and Dwyane Wade was still not entirely over a virus, but both participated in a light Saturday practice, and both said they expected to play Sunday against the Grizzlies.
Wade, who couldn’t get the local feed of the Heat-Hawks game from his hotel room Friday night – so he had to keep abreast by phone and radio – felt good enough Saturday to win the second of two three-point shooting contests, even with Ray Allen among the eight competitors. That led James to shout in glee for Wade “representing for all the non-shooters” and Wade to take a victory lap with his arms raised.
While the shooting contest went on, James Jones — who typically would participate and be among the favorites — was dunking over Terrel Harris on the other end of the court:
“He represented for all the non-jumpers,” James quipped.
:laugh: All two of the "non-shooters" in the game. The James Jones thing is hilarious, too. Wonder who won the first shootout.

doctor...Spo said he didn't want Wade spreading his virus to teammates.

This is going to be a great test for us. We haven't fared well against Memphis in the Big 3 era. I think we beat them at home the first year, but they not only beat us in Memphis that year off the Gay buzzer-beater, but UD hurt his foot that game. Last year we only played them once, and they blew us out in Miami. Their starting 5 is well-built to compete with us. Going to need a great effort.

Joe Goodman took a picture of this picture that's up at FedEx arena. Don't remember Mike ever having short hair there. Just remember soccer hairband Mike, particularly when he won the 6th-man award. (That is what they're holding, right?)

I wish it was LeBron who had the cold so I could see the defensive posts.

Cue the 'oh LeBron's a real man though, he wouldn't miss a game for a cold'

I don't understand how you quote something and completely miss the clear meaning of it. I guess I'll try repeating it: Spoelstra did not want Dwyane Wade spreading his virus to his teammates. Who knows who really made the decision, but we can only go by what we're being told, and that is that they wanted Wade to stay home and not infect his teammates. Understand?

If the average Canadian gets sick every week, something's wrong up there. I know that's not what you meant, but going by what I think you're trying to say, it seems you're implying there aren't sick people in America every week, let alone day, which baffles me.

Just to hammer home the point one more time, because I feel it slipping from your grasp as you read this, I'll put it as simply as possible. Imagine this exchange between Spo and Wade:

:dwade:
Spo, I'm feeling pretty sick, but I can play.


:spo:
Our trainers have established that you have a viral infection that can be contagious to your teammates, so we want you to stay at the hotel and not spread it around.


:dwade:
OK, coach. Good idea.

When has he? He's a god. And we have Wade homers talking shit. Come on lebron played against the Lakers with full blown flu and STILL CRUSHED.

Wade is terrible. Id honestly him for Brandon Jennings...Wade is such a ****ing joke. Horrible work ethic

Brandon Jennings? When you watch the NBA, do you take LeBron's seminal crust out of your eyelashes first, or just roll with it all up in there?

A couple of tweets to help reinforce the virus part.

@EthanJSkolnick Wade said he had a virus that he picked up from kids. Couldn't watch game in hotel room. Followed on radio, on phone.

@WallaceNBA_ESPN LeBron's still sore & due for few rounds of treatment on knee. Wasn't sure if he'd play if game were today. Wade got virus from his kids.
For the sake of me believing you have even a modicum of comprehension, can you please acknowledge the contagious argument? It's valid. Tell me you understand, doc.

Seems like doctor's gone off the irrational Kobe hate and is now irrationally hating Dwyane for not being as perfect as LeBron.

Truly. Not to mention, there's a big difference between Wade sitting out a game to start a long road trip, where players are in closer quarters, than LeBron sitting out at home with the flu when Wade is already missing the game (recall, Wade didn't play that game vs. LAL).

doctor...rarely do I try to reason with you because I know it's very difficult for you to understand basic concepts, but I really want to help you this time. Please read carefully:

The Miami Heat's head coach, Erik Spoelstra, asked Dwyane to stay in the hotel so he wouldn't spread his sickness.

Please indicate to me you understand this. You're acting like a toddler who won't stop crying because his parents told him Dora the Explorer already came on today, and he missed it. "BUT I WANNA WATCH DORA. NOOO!!"

I mean, I can understand someone of your intellect hating Kobe Bryant or Kevin Durant because you're threatened by their abilities, but hating on Wade because he's LeBron's co-star goes beyond any childish behavior I've ever seen.

You know what else happened in that game? Wade was out (cue DD overreaction) and Jerry Stackhouse started at SG for us :laugh:

A couple of days later, Heat released Stack and signed Dampier.

Oh shit, totally forgot that was the game Stackhouse started. I don't remember filing that under "Without Wade." Just remember pain. :laugh:

Jerry's release was also related to Haslem getting injured and needing another big.
