Take Your Best Shot

NBC Sports:

Dwyane Wade said his purpose in Chicago is “bigger than basketball”

Dwyane Wade has come home to Chicago in part because Bulls’ management was embarrassed not making the playoffs and they are counting on the three-time NBA champ, the 12-time All-Star, to turn things around.

Wade wants to do much more than that.

He is coming home to a city torn apart by violence — one where his cousin, Nykea Aldridge, was shot pushing her stroller down the street — and he wants to take steps to end the cycle of violence, he told George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America.”

His job is to insert a 9.5 inch wide ball through an 18-inch hole set 10 feet above the floor on behalf of his own team, and to prevent anyone on the other team from doing so.  Not sure how that deters black violent crime.  But, give it your best shot.  Pun intended.

Wasn’t there some really really really good player in Chicago, some say the best ever, between 1984 and 1996?  Most of those were really bad crime years in the city as well.  This means that Mr. Wade, not quite as good as the one whose name I can’t remember, is swimming against the tide of past performance.




It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
