Do you think Wade will get a statue in Miami or do you think they would give Lebron one instead?

Wade certainly deserves one. We'll just have to wait and see how things turn out in the Lebron era.

What about Bosh? Nevermind, most likely Wade will get his.

Wade definitely will. He took that franchise to new heights.

Jury is still out on Lebron.

Either Wade gets it first, or they both get them at the same time. Depending on their success.

MIA retired MJ's # even though he never played for them and they honr Dan Marino's even though he plays a different sport - both are getting statues.

Only time will tell, can't give either a statue if their career ended today but If they ended up winning 5 or more championships maybe both would have one.

Wade brought a championship to that team in arguably one of the best playoff performances in NBA history. That alone gets him a statue lol

Don't count out Pat Riley as well...

Joel Anthony will get a statue first.They should start it right now because it will take a lot of time especially the head.

Wade gets his first no doubt about it. I am a Florida native and have been to Miami a lot of times. Believe it or not in South Florida, Miami HEAT = Dwyane Wade. He is the biggest and most influential superstar in South Florida sports history, even bigger than Dan Marino. However, LeBron will get his as well but that will be after Wade.

Pat Riley might get his at the same time with Wade as well.

Dwayne Wade will get a statue for sure. A close second without a doubt is Alonzo Mourning.

Heck, Id put Zo's first. He just has done so much for this community and really embodies everything you want from a player wearing a Miami Heat uniform.

D Wade & Zo first.

Does every team need statues outside their building? In 100 years every team will have like 10...

I agree with the Mike and Mike show this morning when they where talking about this morning, they said Wade already won a title and he didn't leave the city. The also said if they won a lot of championships then Lebron would get won. But they also said they do not believe Wade is there yet.

Lebron will get a statue of him bricking a last second shot.

Just like last night to sink the over-hyped bulls :rolleyes:

I started a topic about this months ago in the Heat forum.

Riley gets a statue before anyone after he retires. Next? Who knows.

We have to see how things play out for the rest of their careers, how their legacy is embraced by the community and so forth. I'll say this, Zo was way bigger with doing things in the community, and is still bigger than Wade in the community outside of basketball.

I think they deserve them as much as anyone ever.

i say that haslem deserve one he is the ultimate born and raise in the county of dade player that has ever played in the miami heat...

people that deserve statues

#1 alonzo
#2 pat
#3 wade
#4 haslem

xfactor
#1 lebron
#2 tim
#3 bosh

or after the heat big 3 era is done they will probably do a statue of all 3......

ShiroRX

Wade will get one regardless, but if they get a few rings 'bron 'bron is def getting one too.

Might need a Haslem statue too.

05-20-2011, 02:34 PM
Wade will get it, but LeBron deserves it more because he's the best player on a core that will probably win several championships.

Well in Miami they retire players numbers that didn't even play on their team, So they probably can't wait to make a statue of someone.

Statues arent that easy to come by. Not every star gets a statue. At this point no ones gets a statue. Kareem Abdul Jabbar doesnt have a statue.

ESPN had a day a few days ago with every show talking about players getting statues in response to Kareem not having one. I think people here are just bringing it up the statue idea to discuss the idea and read what others think.

Baiting thread, why isn't there an option for both?... If they really win 7 rings or anything close to it, like they claim, they'll both get statues.

05-20-2011, 04:48 PM
Even though I feel weird posting in a thread about statues, but until LeBron wins a championship, he shouldn't even think about a damn statue.

Wade will get a statue for sure. James we likely get one. And I would also think Riley get's one.

I would think you need at least 2 championships before a statue can be considered. And this is LeBrons very first season with the heat so it is way to early to talk about statues for him.

MrfadeawayJB
05-20-2011, 05:43 PM
Wade would get one first, but i see both getting one in the future. There is no way LeBron ever has more championships than Wade, seeing that Wade already has one and LeBron does not

Clearly Wade deserves one. He got them a ring.

LeBron shouldn't get anything that prestigious imo.

if lebron gets a statue wade is getting 1 too

Depends on their success.. They both wont get em' with the resumes they have in Miami right now.. It all depends if they can win multiple titles and remain loyal to the organization (Wade has the advantage on this regard).

neither number is retired, they're honored for their contributions to the individual sports.

Somebody could wear 23.

trust me that 1 is enough for miami... We love him the same way we love Dan Marino ....

... and Marino didnt get to win his... but it dont matter with us...



Wade has a statue already coming.... LEbron would have to win 3 Championships to get a statue.

for Bosh to get one he needs to avg. doubles doubles for most of his career with Miami....

i think our big three will have there jerseys retired... and Udonis will have something dedicated to him.. might even ben jersey retired, but not sure..

TylerSL

Riley probably insured his statue on July 8th, 2011 because he completely trumped the entire league. Riley brought this team Alonzo Mourning, Tim Hardaway, Dwyane Wade, Shaquille O'Neil, Chris Bosh, and Lebron James. He coached the team to their only title, he is getting a statue.

Dwyane Wade insured his jersey retired when he lead the team to the title in 2006, his AMAZING 2008-2009 season, and when he singlehandedly beat the Celtics in Game 4 in last years playoffs. IMO another ring will win him a statue.

I also think Alonzo Mourning and Udonis Haslem both deserve statues for their leadership on the court and everything they have done for the city of Miami.

It all depends on how Lebron and Bosh do in the Heat "Big 3 era" whether they get their statues or not.

hold up... what's with all this talk about statues nowadays. the whole point of a statue is that it's very unique. I remember the days when jordan was the only player with a statue of himself outside of the arena he is playing in. And nowadays, its expected? The value of the statue itself has fallen with the likes of players expecting it to be built like Kareem...

Let's leave retiring jerseys for the great players, and statues for the G.O.A.T's.

I don't think either has done anything to warrant a statue at this time. People need to chill with the statue talk. I know ESPN ran that segment about Kareem not getting one a few days ago. I see statues for players that are legendary. When I think statue I think top player all time; not just for a franchise but in the entire league plus multiple championships. Kareem = Statue West = Statue Wade/Lebron? What have either done to deserve a statue? If we start thinking like that there are going to be statues everywehre. We have the hall of fame for things like this. Talk to me when either has multiple championships and I might change my mind. If thats the case Alonzo Mourning should have a statue in Miami before LBJ.

Do you think Wade will get a statue in Miami or do you think they would give Lebron one instead?

lmao i think miama should win something first...
wade hasnt done a good dam thing without shaq, and lebron still hasnt don anything outside of diminishing his reputation....

not to mention miami doesn't give a dam about pro sports... its a college town, most heat fans are outside of florida and became heat fans when they signed lebron.... that town wont care enough to give either a statue...

they had trouble selling out game 5 against boston... are you kidding me?
