Sure, Dwyane Wade woke up (32 points, 4 assists, 6 rebounds in 40 minutes, with a plus/minus of +5, whatever that plus/minus stuff is supposed to mean). But Miami Heat Fans are sleeping a lot easier, as evidenced by this snoozing little nipper. That's not Baby Birdman -- the adorable eight-month-old who looks like, dresses like like, and hangs with Chris "Birdman" Andersen -- but little snoresworth there at left shows you how Heat fans are sleeping like babies now that they've evened the NBA Finals at two games apiece. The Heat performed the way that we expected them to back in the "Not one... not two... not three" days of 2010 when this powerful roster was first assembled. "Just know that with the Spurs on the verge of knocking them to the canvas," writes ESPN's Brian Windhorst, "the Heat's stars together played their best game in months and one of the better playoff games they collectively delivered in their three years together."
Okay, one more adorable little kid Tumblr photo before we move on some funnier and more mean-spirited ones. Here we see little Zion Wade, Dwyane Wade's youngest son, posing with his proud pappy. Dwyane Wade did not actually say "I did what? I ate the bones!" after the game. In reality, Wade was quoted by Sports Illustrated as saying "I don’t feel like 2006, but it felt good."
"I knew I was on when I took it over the guy’s head and dunked it on the break," Wade continued, apparently not even recalling which guy over whom he had dunked. "That was a little vintage right there. It felt good to have a performance like this in this game when we really needed it. If we go down 3-1 tonight, it’s tough to climb back out of that hole."
