Billups can thank my Wolves for having perimeter defense that makes the Texans secondary look good.

Wade is playing out of this world, I think it's halarious that Bron says neither of them can win the MVP.

Bron won't win it but Wade is certainly making a case. I think Bron is hating that Wade is the real go to guy on the team. They didn't start playing real well until Wade started playing his game.

i think both guys understand that they are better off playing well at the same time. that is, after all, why they became teammates in the first place.

Of course Wade is the leader of the team. He's one of the co-captains with Udonis Haslem, and has been in Miami for 8 seasons now.

But as far as who the best player on the Heat is, that's obviously shared between him & LeBron. Both of their PERs and PPGs are identical.

LBJ said tonight after the Bobcats game........ That he said, neither him our D.Wade can individually win the MVP; but he never said, they could not win it together (co MVP'S).....
Something like that.

D wade is the best player in the world, period
