Before we start, I'd love it if everyone watched Wades DVD "UNDENIABLE THE RISE OF DWYANE WADE" it's a great watch and is really suitable at this stage in Dwyane's career.

NBA UNDENIABLE THE RISE OF DWYANE WADE DVD FULL: http://youtu.be/rD3IiCK1IvI

The NBA media and fanbase seems to always follow the players in the moment, hyping up guys like Paul George, and most recently Leonard. On the other spectrum, guys like kobe, rose, and wade are forgotten all too quickly.

Since he was a rookie, wade was overshadowed by lebron. We forget that he lead his previous 22 winning miami team to a second round playoff meeting in just his rookie year.

His second season, with an injured shaq, he lead them to the eastern conference finals.
His third year, he won a finals MVP.
His fourth year, instead of following doctors orders and performing a season ending surgery, he played through it just to get his veteran guys to the playoffs while averaging 27, 7, 5. Every year after, he carried his team to the playoffs.

Wade was and still is (when healthy) one of the few REAL superstars who can still carry a team past the first round.

If anyone has proven the critics wrong in the past, it was D Wade.

My question is, do you guys believe wade can regain his prime level again and possibly win a championship with this balanced squad of veterans?

Note: I am merely a raptors fan who enjoys the competition of the NBA. I'm far from a heat fan.

he lost his explosiveness, i was watching vids of him in his prime wow dude had a ridiculous first step. he can become great again but i think he needs to lose some weight so he doesn't put too much pressure on those knees.

Wade missed the playoffs in 08 and never got out of the first rd after his championship run. Until of course Lebron took his talents to south beach.

you mean the season where he only played 51 games. and regards to not getting out the first round, you should look at his roster man, it was awful,.

Shaq was pretty healthy in his first year woth Miami. In fact he and Steve Nash were neck in neck for mvp voting

He also didn't average 27, 5, 5 when he played injured in that series with Chicago, he played MUCH worse than that.

I was talking about the regular season, when he carried that dysfunctional team to the playoffs.

Shaq and co carried them down the stretch while wade was out. They went on a huge win streak wothout him

I thought this was one of those Friday the 13th movie threads.

I mentioned in the "Wade has a slim chance to pass Kobe" thread that during his prime (04-05 through 10-11), his second year through the Big 3 first year, Wade averaged 26.5pts/5.2rbs/6.6asts/1.8stls/1.1blks on .486 shooting. Wade did everything on the basketball court and was practically as good as Lebron 2009-2011. Wade is truly a legend people do seem to have forgotten.

I do not think Wade will get back to THAT level but I think people are going to be shocked with what he does this upcoming season. Before Lebron arrived, Wade was the man, the ball handler, the go to guy, the scorer. Lebron is so ball dominant Wade has had to spend much of the last 3 years (it wasn't until 2011-2012 that this started happening) moving off the ball and waiting to get his looks, and over the last 3 years he is still averaging 20.8pts/4.8rbs/4.8asts/1.7stls/0.9blks on .520 shooting. 21/5/5 while playing the forever known Pippen role is pretty good.

Next season, Wade is going to have to be the ball handler again and with Lebron gone he doesn't have to defer with anyone. He will play with Bosh like he did with Shaq, they will share the load and the 2014-2015 Miami Heat will be their team, 1A and 1B. I honestly think we will see 24/5/6 from Wade next year in about 65 games, and 23/9 from Bosh. I think people at this time next year people will consider Wade top 10 again.

Aren't we talking about what he can still do and not what he did? He had a great stretch and if were anything close to that there is no way in Hell LeBron goes to Cleveland. We might be talking about going for a possible four-peat right now.

This is Cleveland's best chance to bring a title to the city in 50 years, I don't think Miami could have done anything to keep him.

They should make a video montage of all the times when he cries, pouts and complains to the refs. That would be a very long movie.

that will be a long montage between 2010-2014. Those were his absolute worst seasons. Prior to that he was far more humble and likable.

Half the people here would have a different view of Wade had Bron never came to Miami. He used to be extremely explosive and was just plain fun to watch. Go back and watch him single handedly destroy teams (Knicks when they busted his lip was just amazing from a sports point of view). He is the greatest shot blocking guard we have ever seen. He had the burden of terrible teammates many times. Although I do believe Kobe is obviously the better of the two, consider this:

Kobe wins with Shaq, team does subpar-terrible (at times) despite his PPG with just Kobe because his team sucked, then Gasol and Bynum come and Kobe wins again. Majority of NBA fans say Kobe is an all time great.

Wade skyrockets when Shaq joins team, Shaq leaves and team does subpar-terrible despite Wade's PPG, Wade wins again with big 3. NBA fans now hate Wade because of big 3 and media.

Pretty safe to say ANY great player needs a team surrounding him. That being said I'm quite confident (a little biased like any other fan sure) that Wade and especially Bosh will have one hell of a year and shut the haters up.

I love it when people throw out random comments like "do you even watch basketball?" Yes. And based on what I have seen, Wade cries, pouts and flops more then most. Kicking his leg out every three, begging and crying, running down court flailing his arms etc.

He might be one of your favorites, but he is one of the biggest babies in the sport.

It was painful watching wade in these finals. Watching role players shut him down. Watching role player tiago splitter block wades shot into retirement. Wade needs to retire and work for espn or nba tv. I don't like it when these dead weight players stay around.

vince and tmac screwed themselves, especially tmac who bailed on the raps because he wanted to be the man in orlando. steve though deserved it and he would have gotten it if diaw/amare didn't jump out the bench when horry took that cheap shot against nash.

Work for espn or nbatv? He can barely talk eloquently with those chipmunk cheeks. We will just hear a bunch of uneducated "you know, you knows" and cliches.

Tmac left Toronto to be WITH GRANT HILL. A superior player to Vince at the time. And no, Nash would have lost just like he did every other year.
