Not long. He's 28 years old, his production has gone down from last year. I don't think he can continue to be a guy who can carry his team by himself. He's going to need help like Kobe got Pau or Pierce got Allen and KG.

Wow its amazing that he's already 28. He should continue to work on his jumper, cause his speed is gonna decline in the next 2-3 years for sure. If he gets help, he'll be fine. He's already a top 5 player in this league. I may get jumped for this, but I put Melo ahead of him now.

4-5 years baring any serious injuries of course. Theres still a decent gap in complete skill with wade and the next guy inline. Unless Durant develops a much better defensive and passing game or Roy becomes a consistent scoring/defensive threat i dont see anyone passing him anytime soon.

5 years if there is no injury. He will be different next year surrounding by much more talent. He wont have to take risk. Also, he will find his game a whole lot easier than now assuming he gets a strong cast. Eventually that will allow him stay elite for longer.

i seriously didnt know dwade was 28. i dont see his skill and body deteriorating as quickly as some of you are making it out to. remember, this guy is ELITE and he will take care of his body. i think he has as long as he wants to be mentioned at the top of the NBA world.

not trying to be biased but i think melo is already playing better than dwade right now.
leading the league in scoring, and his team is right up there with the bests.

if wade is #3, carmelo is #3b and vice versa.

dwade is just not the same dwade we saw last year, while carmelo took his game to another level.

IMO, Wade has been extremely inconsistent throughout his career, he'll need to be a Top 3 player for atleast 5 seasons for me to consider him on Kobe and Lebron's level.

01-26-2010, 04:15 AM
Wade is an interesting case. I don't see him slowing down because he still has a lot in the tank. I say 3 years is a safe bet, and 5-6 years is a good possibility.

I would say that Wade has four more years after this season of being a top five player in the league. I'm sure he'll enjoy several good years after that, but probably not at the very top of the NBA.

Agreed. Wade is awful. It's not like he's ever lead the league in scoring or anything. It's not like he's been in MVP discussions or lead a team to a championship. Horrible. Send his *** to Europe. :p

Wade has shown was he's more than capable of when he has players around him...People doubted him before so now this isn't anything new... he's a beast and definitely on the level of Kobe and Lebron... Wait till he gets his supporting cast in the summer most of you will be changing your opinions...

Ethix11
01-26-2010, 02:12 PM
Hes not playing all out because he knows his team is unlikely to compete late in the playoffs. So hes putting off most of his energy for next year and beyond. Also, with the injur season, he basically had another year to rest. In my opinion he has another 7 years to be top 3 in the league. I like Durant but other than score, hes not more of a game changer like D Wade who blocks, assists, steals, and rebounds. Thats not Durants game and for that reason i think he will always be compared more to Melo, B Roy, J Johnson types..But if D Wade had the talent, he would play with more effort and definately be in the MVP discussion. As a Heat fan, ive noticed his lack of effort. But there is no lack of skill whatsoever.

Bring The Heat

Yes, I do thank them. It was awesome seeing team USA reclaim the Gold, but if you leave Wade out of that bolded sentence, then you must be extremely high. Wade was every bit as integral to that team as Kobe. Wade was unstoppable for that team, and failing to see that proves you must not have watched a single game. Check any boxscore from Beijing and you will see just how efficient he was. If there was a MVP for the Olympics, Wade would have won it HANDS DOWN. Anyways, like I said, it was a great medal to reclaim and i was very proud of those players...All of them.

...And in case you need a history lesson, here's an excerpt form Wikipedia:

At the 2008 Olympics, the United States went unbeaten and earned gold medal honors, defeating the 2006 World Champion Spain in the final game. Wade led the team in scoring throughout the tournament and tallied a game high 27 points in 27 minutes on 75% field goal shooting and added 4 steals, 2 assists and 2 rebounds in the game. For the tournament, he averaged a team high 16 points in 18 minutes on 67% field goal shooting, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 2.3 steals, as the United States lived up to their Redeem Team moniker and captured gold medal honors for the first time since 2000.

WOW....So Wade dominated against the crap teams of the world and inflated his stats (much as Lebron does throughout the regular NBA season) :rolleyes:.....The only thing I remember is that when Team USA played the only worthy contender (Spain) It was KOBE who they leaned to in fourth quarter crunch time when Spain was within 3. It was KOBE who made the four point play to give Team USA a 7 point lead. :clap: KOBE lead Team USA in scoring in that same fourth quarter. When it actually counted, Team USA relied on their BEST PLAYER and for that they were rewarded with a gold medal. When Team USA relied on Lebronze and Wade years earlier.......They got the Bronze. :facepalm:

Ever wonder why they were called the "Redeem Team" to begin with? Because they won gold in both 04 & 06 led by Wade..........wait a minute......He was part of a national embarrassment. We were the laughing stock of international ball before Kobe & Kidd came back. Your comical if you think Wade was the MVP of the team.

Umm dude are you ******** Wade scored 27 in the game vs. Spain while Kobe put up 20... Wade hit a 3 pointer with 2 minutes left to seal the deal.... So your saying Kobe didn't do **** through almost all the olympics but BECAUSE he comes out of nowhere hits 4 point play to extend the lead.... hes the MVP!

For top 3 this is his last season cuz Durant is gonna be top 3 next year, i think he will be top 10 for 5 years max there are too many guys : Reke , CP3 , Wall , Jennings , Curry , Roy that will take his place

With Bosh they are and with Amare they're close. I can't believe someone said Kobe was the difference in the olympics. They clearly didn't watch any game because without Wade they definitely would have lost to Spain.

I don't think you can single out one player and say he was the difference the olympics.

Truth is anyone that was in their game rotation played a big part. Chris Bosh was arguably the states best defensive player, even though they had Dwight Howard starting.

Lol, when Wade and LeBron carried the same intensity from those Olympics and translated them into possible DPOY seasons I'd have to disagree. Bryant set the tone defensively while the rest of the team fed off him. Bosh was the countries best defender at big but Bryant, Wade and James were the cornerstones of that team defensively. All of them translated D to O throughout the tournament.

Wade still has 4-5 PRIME years left. When he gets in the gym a couple hours before the game his jump shooting is unbelievable throughout the course of a game. This is not his finest season, but you can see the growth in his game this year. His post game is MUCH more lethal than its ever been. His work in pick and roll situations (already phenomenal) has even improved. You pair him w/ a Chris Bosh and the league will have Kobe/Gasol 2.0. If he knocks down his first 3 attempt, its a wrap. When he gets a couple guys to play off of this summer he'll put together one of his finest seasons next year.

D-Wade was never a top 5 player to begin with. He was top 5 with the ref's that's for sure but never top 5. The dude isn't really slippin like that, he just not getting calls like he used to.

I don't see why people would dislike Wade.
