Our Haute 100 list details the accomplishments of the most influential people in each of our markets—Miami, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. These people continue to make moves, so rather than waiting for the next Haute 100 issue to come out, we thought we’d provide you with regular updates on those Haute 100 members who are making headlines. Dwyane Wade, a Miami Heat MVP, scored a season-high 40 points last night against the Knicks, bringing the Heat to its 15th win out of 16 games so far.
Company: Miami Heat
What Made Him Haute: Dwyane Wade has been part of the Miami Heat since 2003. It can be said that Wade is the force and face of the Heat, especially after being their scoring leader, helping his team win its only championship in the 2006 NBA finals. At only 28 years old, Wade is a basketball superstar.
What Makes Him Haute Now: Last night Wade scored a season-high 40 points in the game against the New York Knicks, according to The Miami Herald. Wade was able to reach 40 points with four free throws late in the game. It was a close match, but when that buzzer sounded it was the Heat that was crowned victorious, beating the Knicks 106 to 98. According to NBC, Wade was probably the biggest reason why the Knicks weren’t able to catch up to the Heat.
“My teammates did a great job, especially in the fourth, of looking for me,” said Wade. “Guys did a great job getting me the ball in my sweet spots and I was able to attack.”
The Heat’s winning streak continues on, having three wins in a row under their belt.
