GIF: Dwyane Wade misses open layup on breakaway

Cue the old man jokes.

Dwyane Wade used to slam it home on plays like these. Used to. Now, he goes in gently for a layup, as elder statesman of the game often do. This time, his layup bounced harmlessly off the rim.

In the second quarter of Thursday night's game against the Golden State Warriors, Wade stole the ball on a pass from Andre Iguodala. He streaked down the court and went for a soft layup with his right hand. He put too much on it and it fell off the rim.

Good job, good effort.
