Wade hits LeBron James with a perfect 'Hail Dwyane' pass

By Cindy Boren

Dwyane Wade "probably threw the best pass in NBA history," according to the recipient of that pass, LeBron James, in the Miami Heat's 110-103 victory over the Pacers in Indianapolis.

It was ridiculously good, that 90-foot, first-quarter Wade-to-James bomb for an easy touchdown field goal.

"That was like Aaron Rodgers to Greg Jennings right there. That was right on point," James said. "The ball was in the air so long I was telling myself, 'I'm running out of room. I'm running out of room. When this ball going to land?' "

"I've never seen that before," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told the Miami Herald. "Really, that was a spectacular play that looked like Randy Moss going deep and it shows, you know, Dwyane will brag about his football-throwing ability, but to be able to catch it in midair and find the basket, gather himself and then lay in an alley-oop from 90 [feet], I don't think I've seen that before in this league."

"I never knew how Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers or Jay Cutler felt or those guys felt," Wade told the Indianapolis Star, "but I did on that one. I felt that was a perfect pass. You've got a great receiver at the end of it, and LeBron made it look good."

LeBron is so good that he managed to make even himself look good in the same game, with what Yahoo calls a SCUBA* dunk
