While Momma Wade is on her knees praying for her son’s troublesome knees, I hope she also prays for his jump shot and for the San Antonio Spurs demons to get out of LeBron’s head.
The seemingly unstoppable and energetic Wade’s scoring average has plummeted since suffering a deep bone bruise against Orlando on March 6. His focus has shifted to hours of treatment before and after each game. Although uncertainty lingers about Wade’s performance, the player finds comfort from his mother, Jolinda Wade, praying for his knee. During the second-round playoff series against the Chicago Bulls, Wade yelled to his mom, “Ma! Come and touch my knee and pray on it”(PAGE 48), which she continued to do throughout the Eastern Conference finals.
Wade obviously hasn’t been himself throughout these playoffs, and at this point it will probably take a miracle for him to turn it around and regain his All-Star form.
