MIAMI -- For one night at least, Dade County will be Wade County once again.When the Chicago Bulls (4-4) visit the Miami Heat (2-4) on Thursday, the lions share of the focus will be on Dwyane Wade, the 6-foot-4 shooting guard, 12-time NBA All-Star and three-time NBA champion.Wade, the fifth pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, spent his entire career with the Heat until he bolted as a free agent this summer, landing in his hometown of Chicago.His decision saddened and disappointed thousands of Heat fans, who grew to love what Wade accomplished in Miamis colors.Wades return to his adopted home of Miami will be an event, as evidenced by the national broadcast on TNT.Im looking forward to it, Wade told ESPN after the Bulls beat the Orlando Magic on Monday night. Im looking forward to playing in the environment I played in for 13 years and competing against guys Ive played with and have relationships with.The Wade-in-Miami angle is so prominent that he talked about it even though there was another game to be played between the Bulls and the Hawks. The Bulls, in fact, lost 115-107 at Atlanta on Wednesday night. Bulls small forward Jimmy Butler led all scorers with 39 points, and Wade added 25.Meanwhile, the Heat (2-4) have been off since Monday and wont have to travel. That is a significant scheduling advantage for Miami, but it remains to be seen if Wade plays with a huge amount of emotion and if that will be enough to carry the night.The Heat, during the games first timeout, are expected to play a video montage of Wades highlights during his career in Miami.Ill definitely be appreciative of that moment, Wade said. It will be cool to see the love and support and people being thankful for what I did. Unless you are just cold-blooded, you are going to feel something.But its not like a retirement ceremony where I will have a chance to be real emotional. Im trying to beat their butt.The Bulls (4-4) are trying to get back to the postseason, after all. They missed the playoffs last season for the first time since 2008.After the season, Chicago traded away star point guard Derrick Rose and watched center Joakim Noah and power forward Pau Gasol leave as free agents.The Bulls regrouped by signing point guard Rajon Rondo and getting center Robin Lopez in the Rose trade. They signed Wade to a two-year, $47 million contract after he felt, in essence, disrespected by the Heats two-year, $40 million offer.Rondo, Wade and Lopez were added to the Bulls nucleus, which consists primarily of Butler, the one star on the team who is still in his prime, and power forward Taj Gibson.Chicagos bench is led by forwards Doug McDermott and Nikola Mirotic and guard Isaiah Canaan.Bulls backup point guard Michael Carter-Williams made the road trip even though his bruised left knee likely will keep him out for another month.The focus on Thursday, of course, will be on Wade. And Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, for one, is looking forward to the game and to the montage that will honor his former star.That will be a special moment, Spoelstra said. Dwyane means a lot to myself and to all of us in Miami.The Heat, though, has enough to worry about in terms of actually winning games. They are 1-2 at home and 1-2 on the road.Point guard Goran Dragic leads Miami in scoring (18.0) and assists (6.2). Center Hassan Whiteside is averaging 17.5 points, 13.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocks. Reserve guard Tyler Johnson is playing well, averaging 14.5 points while making 51.6 percent of his shots.But Dragic, normally a terror while attacking the rim, is shooting just 43.9 percent on 2-pointers. And there is precious little in the way of perimeter shooting on this team once you get past Dragic and Johnson.Maybe that is one reason why Miamis starting small forward, Justise Winslow, said Wades arrival means little to him.It wont be emotional for us, said Winslow, who only played one year with Wade. We play against former players all the time. Raul Jimenez Jersey .

Javier Hernandez Jersey . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. Diego Reyes Jersey . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night.Surrey director of cricket Alec Stewart believes Ben Stokes could open the batting alongside Jason Roy for their World T20 game with Afghanistan if Alex Hales is ruled out through injury. Hales and Roy have struck up a positive partnership at the top of the order but Nottinghamshires Hales is struggling with a back problem that will be assessed on Wednesday morning ahead of the game, live on Sky Sports 2 HD from 9am.James Vince appears likely to come in to replace him but former England captain Stewart is keen to see Stokes and Roy opening the batting in Delhi. It will be a huge blow, Jason Roy and Alex Hales are two very destructive players and they have created a very good opening partnership, Stewart told Sky Sports News HQ.Lets hope he is 100 per cent fit and the two of them can go out and open the batting and repeat what they did the other day against South Africa.You want to still take the attacking options and I wouldnt be against pushing Ben Stokes up the top of the order if Alex Hales isnt fit. Eoin Morgan says England will leave their decision over playing a third spinner against Afghanistan on Wednesday until the last minute. Theres James Vince there in reserve but if Ben Stokes bats for 10 or 12 overs, England will win the game, I promise you that.He doesnt open too often, perhaps just one or two occasions for Durham, but I would gamble and say to Ben go up there, show how good you are, and bat with Jason Roy.Stewart is well aware of Roys abilities, having regularly seen him oppening the batting for Surrey, and he feels he has the ability to swing a game in his teams favour in the same way Stokes can.dddddddddddd He is a destructive player. If you speak to bowlers, he is one of the last batsmen they would want to bowl to, Stewart said of Roy.He destroyed Dale Steyn in that opening over [against South Africa], to really set the tone for England to go on and win that game.Joe Root took the plaudits and rightly so but Jason Roy really took the attack to the opposition, he put them on the backfoot, to allow England to bring that run-rate down. Surrey Director of Cricket Stewart would like to see Stokes and Jason Roy bat together at the top of the order Just like Stokes, if Roy bats 10 overs in a 20-over game, that side will win more times than not.He [Roy] just needs to bat a little longer now and get 75 or even a hundred.As for Englands chances of winning the tournament, Stewart is convinced they can beat anyone on their day and could yet cause an upset.I said before the tournament started, England wont be one of the favourites but they are a very dangerous side, he added.We saw that against South Africa and although we didnt see it [in their opening defeat] against West Indies, if they are on their A game, they can beat anyone. Morgan unsure on third spinner Eoin Morgan will make late call on how many spinners will face Afghanistan I include West Indies and India in that, who are probably the two favourites, although we must not discount New Zealand.If England can repeat what they did with the bat against South Africa, they then need to be just a little bit smarter with the ball and execute their variations a little better.They can go all the way but they have to be on their A game.Watch England v Afghanistan in the World T20 on Wednesday.
