Dwyane Wade + Playoff Preview
In this week's episode of Pull Up, Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade joins CJ and Jordan. First, CJ reflects on the crazy push for the playoffs in both conferences (0:30) and the tough stretch that the Blazers have faced, and the guys talk Ben Simmons and the 76ers (4:00) in the playoffs. Then they try to decipher the latest with Kawhi (8:00) and how CJ relates to going through a difficult injury. Then, D-Wade joins to discuss a whole variety of topics, including his time with LeBron and the Cavs this season, whether LeBron is better now than he was with Miami, the differences between playing ball in the social media age and in previous generations, the responsibility of athletes to speak out, mental health and the value of seeking therapy, the lack of African-American front office members in the NBA, LaVar Ball, the future of marijuana in the NBA, where key free agents will go, and so much more.
