................to evolve his game & if he wants to extend his career.
I've been concerned w/ Wade's jumpers for some time now (but not that much recently lol)....but one thing i know about Wade is that he is a strong-willed type of player. With the skill to allow that will to manifest into draining shots & winning games. I couldn't count the amount of times & situations where he refused to lose, made unbelievable plays, hitting shots, putting his team on his shoulders & winning games. But now that he is getting older and reaching that 30 mark in age perhaps the body can't quite match that skill let alone allow that will to manifest into scoring and winning ball games no matter how strong the desire. You can see through all his recent injuries that the body is showing it's wear & tear.
I've always put Wade as a smart man (not as smart as i used to think recently though lol) & a smart basketball player but can't comprehend why he hasn't sharpened his shot the way Jordan & Kobe did later in both their careers. Not to say it may not happen but he is 30 & his Jump shots are still very inconsistent. His game is also quite sloppy. By this stage Jordan & Kobe if not perfected and sharpened their shot but were in the process and added some weapons to adapt to their age.
Another thing that should be concerning is the way he is not really that focused into becoming healthy. I remember that horrid season before 2008 when he had shoulder and knee surgeries & he was on a surge to not only get healthy but to prove his nay sayers wrong. He got into unbelievable shape!! He was focused!! He sharpened his game and was in great condition and his skills were sharp as hell.............which lead to Olympic-MVP-gold medalist (coming off the bench to boot) and almost took out both Scoring Champ and Reg Season MVP in that 08-09 season.
I don't see that same Wade today. As some of you know i used to be a massive Wade fan. and so with my observations, though i see him workout and other various things to improve himself i don't see that fire, true dedication and that focus and hunger we saw pre-BIG 3 era.
Wade better smarten up quick because he is slowly (or to me very quickly) becoming quite irrelevant (abit strong of a word). Let me re-phrase.....he may not be as relevant as he used to be back when he was torching teams, carrying his squad and achieving unbelievable feats.
