If they fail in this year's finals, riley will probably think about trading him for the right price.
if they trade him i would lose every once of respect for that organization, i remember in 2010 every star was like "we'll see what happens" not fully committed and dwade even after a loss to the celtics in the 1st round was the only one who stepped up and said i wont leave miami
expect to hear that he has surgery after the season, miami would never let the info get out that is hurt, but all the beat writers for the heat agree that he is not 100%
Wade isnt going anywhere, im near certain of that. to trade wade would be for riley to basically admit failure and i dont see that happening.
The bigger question is is how would Wade react to be traded? I cant imagine it would be pretty. Leading that same team back in 06 to a title as the leader, then being kicked out by the guy YOU brought to the team along wth his buddy Bosh, and then making that "not one, not two..." speech, etc.
That would be a lot more entertaining to see then the fans reaction.
I hate the Heat.....Once the Heat lose in the Finals I can officially start my summer. With that being said....as a fan of the game of NBA basketball, Dwayne Wade is a great player....a championship caliber all star.......
He didn't leave the team that drafted him when he had an opportunity.....his legacy should remain in tact.....I would be disappointed to see that because I do respect his game.
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS 18-1 Signature of a Champion!
ELI MANNING.... 2X SB MVP....2X SB CHAMPION!
I'm not saying Miami should pull the trigger. But if the Heat fail to win again, what do they do next? Try again, same exact core, and a year older?
Magic. Red Sox. Colts. Knights.
that would be the best thing they could do for an aging nicked up star. Obviously it depends on what they would get back but he and LBJ just don't fit together.
I would do Wade + Bosh for Dwight + Ryan Anderson in a heartbeat.
Then you go out and get Nash.
