May “Blocked by Wade” be etched forever in your memory.

Dwyane Wade surpassed Michael Jordan for the most blocks by a guard in NBA history (includes both regular season and playoffs) on Monday night.

Block no. 1,052 occurred in the second quarter of Miami’s home contest against Atlanta, Wade rejecting a jump shot by the Hawks’ B.J. Johnson, an undrafted rookie out of La Salle.

Over the course of his career, the 13-time all-star has blocked Joe Johnson and Ben Gordon more times than anyone (12), while former Toronto Raptor DeMar DeRozan is also high on the list having been rejected nine times. You can see the full list of players who have been blocked by Wade here.

Wade, 37, earlier announced that this — his 16th year in the league — would be his final NBA season. He is averaging 14.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.2 assists over 52 games.
