Dwyane Wade's Gameday Ritual -- 3's the Charm

4/28/2010 5:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade doesn't just wear the number "3" on his jersey -- he's also concocted a specific gameday ritual based around his lucky number.

Part 1 starts before the game ... when D-Wade knocks out 3 pull-ups hanging from the rim.

Part 2 takes a little bit longer to execute -- Wade must chew 3 pieces of gum during the game ... one during warm-ups, one at the beginning of the game, and one during halftime.

Part 3 -- dude always drinks exactly 3 bottles of Gatorade during every game .. no more, no less.

Obviously, the ritual doesn't work every time -- the Heat were knocked out of the playoffs last night ... but Dwyane did put up 31 points.

Why don't you all just leave Dwayne alone. He's still a good sports player regardless what happened last night. Everyone has a bad game every now and then.

Lisa C. - 31points is not a bad game, Boston is just a much better team. Without D Wade Miami would be nowheres near the playoffs. And yeah, his mama spelled his name wrong, always irritated me.
