Dwyane Wade saved his best performance of the year for the playoffs.
D-Wade’s Still Got It
After the Sixers blew out the Heat in Game 1 (without Joel Embiid), it looked like Philly was going to walk into the second round without much trouble. Not so fast, said Dwyane Wade. At the age of 36, Wade came off the bench and dropped 28 points with seven rebounds in a 113–103 Miami victory—inspired in part by Kevin Hart talking trash from his courtside seats.
Wade's performance was so good, his wife Gabrielle Union started publicly sexting him.
Embiid—who sat out with a fractured orbital bone—was all smiles after Game 1, but he needed to vent after the Heat evened the series. He wrote on Instagram that he was “f---ing sick and tired of being babied.”
The Best $180 She Ever Spent
Even the biggest running fans around had never heard of Sarah Sellers before she came in second at the Boston Marathon yesterday—not that you can blame them. Sellers, a nurse from Arizona, was running just her second marathon ever. She paid the $180 entrance fee and dreamed of placing in the top 15 so she could earn a trip to the Olympic trials. She ended up finishing second and winning the $75,000 prize, though she didn’t believe the person who told her that she had beaten all but one of the women.
The Wall Street Journal’s Sara Germano does a good job putting Sellers’s finish in perspective. Several of the elite runners ahead of her dropped out of the race due to the nasty weather conditions, and Sellers's time (2:44:04) is about a half hour slower than what the top women usually run. But still, it’s amazing that a woman who doesn’t train for marathons on a full-time basis can outlast some of the world’s best.
Jerry Lawler Has the Worst Luck
Former WWE announcer Jerry “The King” Lawler revealed on a recent episode of his podcast that he had a stroke while having sex with his fiancée, three weeks before he called the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania.
There’s never a good time to have a medical emergency, but this isn’t the first time something like this has happened to him. Back in 2012, Lawler went into cardiac arrest live on the air during Raw and nearly died.
