Dwyane Wade


Q. When you got selected for this, you sounded doubtful about your own chances and now you won, I mean, what happened?
DWYANE WADE: I don't know, man. I just went out there and I just competed, like everybody else. I kind of knew early on I was going to get the passes down. I was just worried about that top-of-the-key jumpshot, what you see everybody had trouble on.
Just was competing, man. It was fun.
Q. Did you do any practicing for this event?
DWYANE WADE: No. Only practice was early on. We all came out just to get the court down and everything. I'm sorry, I didn't even watch it on the DVD they gave me. I decided to wing it, that's the kind of player I am, just come out and wing it anyway, so it worked again.
Q. When you made it the finals, did you think your time was going to hold up? Because I saw you looking up when Nash was there, were you concerned?
DWYANE WADE: You know, with 39 seconds, and seeing that Nash had the record with 25, not at all. But seeing that he had trouble with the jumpshot, it was shocking. I thought Nash was going to knock that down right away.
But it was good, man. And LeBron going 33 in the finals, I didn't know what to expect, but I hit that jumpshot and I kind of knew from there that I was going to be holding the trophy up.
Q. The first time when you were having trouble with the top-of-the-key jumpshot, would it have been easier to picture some Pistons guarding you there?
DWYANE WADE: I don't know. (Laughing).
It would have been easier if I was listening to my teammates. Shaq was on the side, "Leave it up, leave it up." The second time, I decided I didn't want to hear his mouth no more, so I decided to leave it up and gave it a chance and made the shot.
Q. What about next year, defend your title, set the record?
DWYANE WADE: Yeah, man, I'm going to be in Vegas no matter what next year. No matter what happens, I'm in Vegas next year. Get the family and let's go. Vegas, here I come. (Laughter).
Q. How do you feel about that section who got PSP's just because of you?
DWYANE WADE: I feel great. They was saying, "We love Wade," and it's great anytime fans, you know, like you. Anytime they like you, I think section 416, they did a great job rooting me on. I'm glad I can give them a gift and give them a PlayStation.
