Dwyane Wade Was Hot Garbage as the Celtics Eliminated the Bulls

Coming off a masterful offensive performance two days earlier, Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade did not show up on either end of the court in Game 6 as his squad was eliminated from the playoffs by the Boston Celtics.

Wade connected on just one field goal in 10 attempts and did not register a free-throw try, finishing with two points, three rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 19 minutes. The team was outscored by 27 with the 35-year-old on the floor. In the 29 minutes without him, his Bulls outscored the Celts by five, en route to losing 105-83.

Missed shots are one thing, but the defensive effort put forth by Wade was nothing short of laughable.

Though he filled up the box score in Game 5 for 26 points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists, his D in that defeat was similarly nonexistent.

Wade signed a two-year, $47 million contract with the Bulls in the summer of 2016 after Pat Riley refused to meet Wade's contract demands to keep him with the Miami Heat, who drafted Wade in 2003.

The 14-year veteran has a player option for the 2017-18 season.
