Basketball is all about trust: Wade

InternationalBasketball is all about trust: Wade

CHICAGO (USA): There’s a buzz in the Bulls’ ranks with Dwyane Wade joining them from the Miami Heat. A native of Chicago, Wade made a sparkling debut for the city he was born in on Thursday night, when the Bulls opened their 2016-17 season against the Boston Celtics at United Center.

 After 13 years in the league, Wade has a reputation to maintain. The shooting guard of the Chicago Bulls has been a three-time NBAChampion (2006, 2012, 2013 with the Miami Heat). He was named Finals MVP in 2006, was named to 12 All -Star teams and was the MVP of the 2010 game. He was also named to the AllNBA Team eight times and voted to the NBA All-Defensive team three times. Wade is also a two-time Olympic member of the USA basketball team that won gold at the 2008 Games in Beijing and bronze at the Athens Games in 2004.

Wade and Rajon Rondo are the only veterans in the third most changed team in the league this season and there are concerns with fresh faces aplenty, but trust, Wade reckoned, will hold the team in good stead. “Well, it’s all about trust. It’s like with anything in life -you don’t know somebody, you ain’t trust him with your life. On the basketball court, you have to trust a guy that’s going to have your back. But when you’re playing team basketball, it’s all about helping each other. “It’s not a one-on-one game so it’s all about trust, building that trust. You get that trust by being in the foxhole with that guy, going through tough moments with him, learning with each other, talking with each other so we built some trust,” he said.

 That trust was apparent in the 105-99 win over the Celtics, who were outplayed on the boards with Wade (22), Jimmy Butler (24) and Rondo the standouts. Wade set the tone for the match by opening the scoring for the Bulls and finished it with a three-pointer with 26.3 seconds remaining.
