MIAMI - Dwyane Wade still gets angry. Terry Porter Jersey . Just not as often.After a year like he had, that says something. It was eventful, often for unpleasant reasons such as his Miami Heat falling from the NBA mountaintop, a superstar friend deciding to leave the locker room they shared and a team rebuilding project.For him, 2014 was like none other.It was just a different year, Wade told The Associated Press. Every year you go into a new one, you do the New Years Eve resolutions and you sit there and think Yeah, this going to be the year. What I like to see from myself is how I respond to the moments where its not the highs. I know how I respond to the highs. But how do I respond in moments of truth?Hes finding out.The Heat are 14-19 as the calendar flips to 2015, barely hanging on to the No. 8 spot in a weak Eastern Conference. LeBron James is wearing a Cleveland uniform now. Miami lost 12 games in December alone, and thats after Wade lost millions in an effort to keep the teams championship core together last summer.How much he lost, only time will tell. He was guaranteed $41 million from the Heat through 2015-16 before opting out; his current deal assures $31 million over that span. The 32-year-old Wade could be a free agent again this summer, since next seasons contract is at his option.Ill be all right, Wade said with a shrug.It cost me a lot. But it wasnt The Decision that cost me, the three-time champion said of his opt-out move, and James choice to leave for Cleveland. It was my decision. I opted out for the better of the team, not for any individual. I opted out for the better of the team and it cost me some money. Im not concerned about it. Not overly concerned, anyway.This is when he reveals that hes happy, even with the Heat struggling.He has coaching privileges in practice now. If he doesnt like something, he can stop the play, correct and teach. Hes been encouraged to pull players aside and tell them what he wants, since what he wants and what the Heat want are almost always in perfect alignment.He has that experience, that impact with his voice, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Hes been great in embracing that. Its the most leadership thats required of him since hes been here.Wades business deals keep growing and his marketability isnt suffering. He got married again last year, tying the knot with actress Gabrielle Union after years of dating. Hes a de facto father of four now; three of his kids, plus raising a nephew.And he can still play.Wade entered Thursday sixth in the NBA in scoring this season, at 23.2 points per game. Hes shooting 51 per cent. Among those who have taken at least 400 shots, only Anthony Davis and Nik Vucevic, big men who do most of their work at the rim, are shooting at a better clip.In my professional life, I got comfortable in a role and I thought maybe this is it, maybe this is how I end my career, Wade said. And then it changed and Im showing myself that I can still do the things I want to do. And my family, starting over as well. Its my second time getting married. Lets see if I can do it right this time, do it better.In separate interviews, Wade and Union referred to the changes in his life the same way — as a rebirth.Its a rebirth that came out of a reevaluation of life and priorities and needs and wants, Union said. And whats emerged like a rising from the phoenix is something so dope, I couldnt even imagine.Wade and Union spent most of the past two years remodeling their home, a process that took longer than either of them wanted or expected but they wound up pleased with the results. Wade sees the parallel with the Heat. A rebuilding project has started there, one he thinks will be worthwhile.I think Im responding OK, Wade said. I think 2014 was a pretty good year. And Im excited for whats next. Zach Collins Jersey . -- The Sacramento Kings have claimed forward Travis Outlaw off waivers under the NBAs new amnesty provision, filling out the frontcourt with another veteran. Noah Vonleh Jersey . The Senators return from a lengthy layoff caused by Wednesdays attack on Parliament Hill to host the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night. http://www.blazersteamofficial.com/Evan-Turner-Blazers-Jersey/ . The England international had both goals in TFCs season-opening 2-1 win over the Seattle Sounders on Saturday.TORONTO -- Kyle Lowry addressed his teammates after the Toronto Raptors concluded the regular-season Wednesday night. While Torontos point guard wouldnt repeat his speech for reporters -- "Thats for me and my guys to know" -- any words of wisdom are much appreciated by this young Raptors playoff team. "I think theyre going to lean on us (veterans) a lot," Lowry said of his less experienced teammates. "But were all going to help. Were all going to be in this together. "Were 15 deep so weve got guys who are very experienced, inexperienced, weve got a coach who has a ring. So everyone is going to lean on everybody." Experience is the early theme of the Raptors opening-round playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets. Toronto hosts the Nets in Game 1 on Saturday and Game 2 on Tuesday before the series shifts to Brooklyn. The Nets expected starting five -- Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Andrei Kirilenko, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett -- have 417 post-season starts between them. The Raptors starters -- Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Terrence Ross, Amir Johnson and Jonas Valanciunas -- have none. Lowry and Johnson at least have some post-season experience -- Lowry played 13 playoff games as a backup point guard for Houston in 2009 while Johnson played in 11 post-season games with Detroit in 2008 and 09. As for the rest of the starters, they dont know quite what to expect. But theyre about to find out. "Well figure it out Saturday," the 23-year-old Ross said. Ross said hes been told the big difference is intensity. "The one thing that stuck out to me the most is the seasons all about repetition," Ross said. "When you get to the playoffs, its all about its your chance to prove what youve been doing the whole season. "The seasons about repetition but when you get to the playoffs, its either win or go home." DeRozan said its important to remain calm. "Dont overhype anything, go out there and take it one game at a time," DeRozan said. "Thats how weve all got to treat it. "Weve got to treat it like its another big game but we understand whats at stake." Johnson said the mood in the locker-room has taken on a decidedly more serious tone. "(Im) juust telling everybody its a brand new season," the forward said. Jusuf Nurkic Jersey. "Weve just got to pay attention to detail. "Were doing that in practice, were going through a lot of film. Its a very serious approach." The 26-year-old said the team is making a conscious effort to not become swept up in the playoff excitement thats gripping Raptors fans. "Theres a lot of stuff coming at us. Family, fans, media," Johnson said. "Its basically just us as a team and we have to stick together and stay focused and just look at the bigger picture." Raptors coach Dwane Casey, whose defensive expertise helped the Dallas Mavericks beat the Miami Heat for the 2011 NBA title, has been preparing his players for the more intense post-season game. "Theres a higher level of being specific on each play, attention to detail. Youve got to challenge the shot, youve got to box out and rebound -- second shots are a no-no. Physicality, no layups," Casey said. "A lot of different things change in the playoffs that weve talked about." Asked if his young players will adapt quickly to the post-season style of play, the coach said "Well, we better. "We better in a couple possessions. Again, its basketball. I dont want to say its day and night. Youre still putting the ball through the hole and keeping your guy from scoring, as basic as you can get. I dont want to overhype it to scare our guys. Its still basketball. "Again, guys will see the difference and theyll feel it. . . the pace of the game, theyll feel that as soon as they walk on the court." Still, Casey said there can be too much emphasis placed on playoff experience. "Its important, but its not the only thing, youve still got to play the game," Casey said. "I go back to Dallas, we were an underdog in every series. We had experience, but we were still an underdog. Its important, but its not the only thing you measure it by." Coaching is where the Raptors do win the experience game. Brooklyns Jason Kidd is in his rookie season as a coach. Kidd was the point guard for that Mavs team that beat LeBron James and the Heat back in 2011. "Jason, Im sure hes prepared himself pretty well to handle the situation," Casey said.
