Dwyane Wade captured his third title, as the Miami Heat closed out the San Antonio Spurs in game 7 of the NBA Finals. However, the most topical issue regarding Wade this whole offseason has been his knees.

Erik Spoelstra admitted that the only way Wade can get right is if he takes time off, as that is the only way his bone bruise could heal. But resting in the playoffs was not an option, according to Wade himself:

“No, I never considered it,” he said. “I’m about gutting it out. I talked to my knees today. We had a conversations. I told them, listen, both you guys, if you can give me one great game, I’ll give you a great summer.”

“Hopefully, no surgery,” he said, knocking on the table. “Treatments, I hope. A lot of rest.”

Wade was forced to miss the 2012 Olympics as he underwent offseason surgery following the 2012 NBA Finals. This offseason he obviously hopes to avoid the same fate, and a long summer will hopefully do the trick.

Many have criticized Wade for his poor play and the fact that he has looked robbed of his athleticism. Still, Wade came up big in a couple of game in this year’s Finals, and if there is one thing you can’t question it’s the heart of the three-time NBA champion.
