Congratulations To Two Time NBA Champion Dwyane Wade!

MIAMI, FL - JUNE 21: Dwyane Wade #3 of the Miami Heat smiles as he holds the Larry O'Brien FInals Championship trophy after they won 121-106 against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game Five of the 2012 NBA Finals on June 21, 2012 at American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.

With their 121-106 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder last night, the Miami Heat secured their second ever NBA Championship. One of the few things linking both championship teams together is former Marquette great Dwyane Wade. Wade had the kind of box score stuffer games that we were accustomed to see from him when he wore the blue and gold with 20 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals and 3 blocks. Wade did not pick up his second NBA Finals MVP award, however, as teammate LeBron James averaged 28.6 points, 10.2 rebounds and 7.4 assists to earn those honors.

Thanks to the outstanding historical archivists in the Marquette athletic department, we know that the championship won by Wade is the seventh NBA title won by a former Marquette player as either a player or a coach in the NBA. In addition to that bright spot of news for Marquette fans, Wade is the first former Marquette player to win multiple NBA titles.

Even as the Heat ran away with the game, Marquette was able to hold the spotlight at the end of the game, as Lazar Hayward scored the last basket of the NBA season with 19 seconds left. Would this series have turned out differently if Thunder head coach Scott Brooks had deployed The Patented Lazar Hayward Trailer Three Pointer? Maybe we'll find out next season...
