KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. — Dwyane Wade has unveiled a new move: leaping over the net. It was a tennis net.
Wade's hurdle came at the start of his drive to the basket for a layup in a game of H-O-R-S-E against Andy Roddick. He made the shot and averted an embarrassing defeat for the NBA, rallying to win the celebrity showdown on a practice court Saturday at the Sony Ericsson Open.
A no-dunk rule imposed by Roddick helped keep the game close. He sank several shots early and led H-O-R to H, which had Wade resorting to the leap over the net and other inventive maneuvers.
As a warmup to the game, Roddick handed Wade a racket and they hit for several minutes. Wade said he last played tennis in high school, and it showed.
