Pierce is still playing well, he's posting a TS above 55% which is still fairly good. Wade hasn't been disappointing to me because I knew his decline was near, I just didn't know when it was going to happen.
Neither, I expected them both to play at this level this season
I have to say Pierce and the reason why is Bron and Bosh have been playing good while Miami has 11-3 record. At this point Wades performance is not hurting the team.
pierce still has the threeball wade still the refs. you pick.
What exactly do you think advanced stats would change about his argument? Or are you just making another lazy argument for the sake of your vendetta ?
If I were you I would be more interested in his use of selective analysis (regarding which games to look at).
"It’s absolutely ludicrous” (to judge players based on whether they’ve won a title.)
pierce for sure, based on the 2 vids being posted around here recently.
Wade's performances as of this year, and when we are done, get ready to slap yourselves for annoying us with this pathetic thread:
Bos- 29 points/ 3 rebounds/ 4 assists/ 10/22 FG
NYK- 15 points/ 5 rebounds/ 4 assists/ 7/10 FG
DEN- 14 points/ 3 rebounds/ 4 assists/ 5/12 FG
PHO- 22 points/ 3 rebounds/ 6 assists/ 9/14 FG
NETS- 22 points/ 2 rebounds/ 5 assists/ 10/14 FG (got an ankle injury)
MEM- 8 points/ 8 rebounds/ 3 assists/ 3/15 FG (played through injury)
HOU- 19 points/ 6 rebounds/ 7 assists/ 8/18 FG (got a left foot injury)
LAC- 6 points/ 3 rebounds/ 6 assists/ 2/10 FG (played through injury, lebron makes statement that wade should rest, so he can heal from his offseason knee surgery and to also recover his foot, ankle and shoulder injuries)
*Wade misses the next two games*
MIL- 28 points/ 3 rebounds/ 4 assists/ 11/21 FG
CLE- 18 points/ 7 rebounds/ 4 assists/ 6/15 FG
SAS- 19 points/ 5 rebounds/ 5 assists/ 7/17 FG (admitted that he's working on getting his rhythm back)
so besides 2 games that obv hindered his stats, wade has been ok.
as the season goes on and if he is healthy, he will only improve. the amount of disrespect shown to wade is just stupid.
He is a 2x Champion. dont say he's done after him playing 11 games idiots.
give it time.
LETS GO HEAT
