Dwyane Wade Passes LeBron James on All-Time Postseason Blocks List

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Dwyane Wade had another big game as the Miami Heat tied the series with the Toronto Raptors and three games apiece. Wade had two big milestones in this game as he passed two great players on the NBA's all-time playoffs lists, LeBron James and Hakeem Olajuwon.

With three blocks in the game, Wade passed his former teammate LeBron James on the all-time blocks list, moving up to the 25th spot. Wade did it in 165 games, averaging 1 block per game, while James needed 21 more games, with 0.9 blocking average. Even though he is only 6'4" and 34 years old, Wade continues to reject his opponents' shots and climbing the blocklist list. He is already the best blocking guard in the postseason as he also passed Michael Jordan earlier in the playoffs.

Beside this milestone, Wade also moved to the 12th spot on the all-time scoring list, passing the Houston Rockets legend Hakeem Olajuwon. This postseason has been quite profound for Wade as he passed many big-name players on this list, including Wilt Chamberlain, Scottie Pippen and Magic Johnson. He is now 14 points away from moving one more spot up and passing John Havlicek for the sole possession of the 11th spot on the all-time postseason scoring list.

Next game for the Heat is on Sunday, May 15, as they will play their finals game of the series against the Raptors. Considering that Wade has averaged 25.2 points per game throughout the series, it is most likely that he will move up on the scoring list one more spot.
