People have been saying Wade will drastically decline for the past 5 years. I guess if you keep on saying it you will be right eventually.

I don't think naming guys clearly outside of their prime are examples of guys who are "going to fall of next season"

So Dirk, Duncan (while very good in his role is no longer Duncan of old) Kobe, Wade , Paul Pierce etc..

My guesses would be
Melo, I think the mileage and injury are going to ware on him and we'll see a healthy season, but no longer the player he was of old.

Chris Paul, I can see his mileage catching him and we see a loss in his step ( biggest drop off would be on the defensive end)

I could see al Jefferson taking a big step back as well

Demarcus cousins. He's gonna shoot around 45% in Karls system, lead the league in technicals and miss games because of it.

Too late. He has.

Wade the last 5 years:

2010-2011: 25.5PPG 6.4 RPG 4.6 APG 50% FG

2011-2012: 22.1 PPG 4.8 RPG 4.6 APG 50% FG

2012-2013: 21.2 PPG 5.0 RPG 5.1 APG 52% FG

2013-2014: 19 PPG 4.5 RPG 4.7 APG 55% FG

2014-2015: 21.5 PPG 3.5 RPG 4.8 APG 47% FG

Pretty steady numbers the whole way. I'll take someone averaging those numbers on my team everyday. Wades decline isn't as bad as everyone tries to make it sound.

Melo is gonna come back fine. He's most likely be 25+ppg and 7+rpg. Seems pretty steady.

I think this may be it for Dirk.
Duncan will only play 20mpg for the whole season and make everyone look old again

Wade usually plays hurt, but he's healthy and his team has so much depth. I don't think he'll be dominant, but he''ll be an easy all star with 22, 5 and 5

Chris paul JUST turned 30. Pgs like him don't start a decline til like 32, 33.

Pretty steady numbers the whole way. I'll take someone averaging those numbers on my team everyday. Wades decline isn't as bad as everyone tries to make it sound.

His last two post seasons he didn't even reach a 20 PER or break .11 WS/48 (although he still was able to step up when needed in 13 I would say). Last year was his worst scoring efficiency and PER since his rookie year and his worst ever VORP and BPM. On top of this his defense has seen a big drop overall the last couple of years as well. Add in 48 missed games these last two years too.

Wade isn't some chump or anything and your numbers help show it, but he has clearly already had a big drop off from his prime play.

Wade, Dirk, and Duncan are on a steady decline.

Steady decline and drop off are two different things. None of those three have a fountain of youth nor are robots. They are still elite talents but are steadily declining.

My picks are guys in their athletic prime who I think their numbers will take a significant hit in comparison to the last 2 years and it won't be based on an injury prediction. More of a new role and poor fit based prediction.

I
I could see al Jefferson taking a big step back as well
Agree with this, but I also feel we already saw it last season.

Post all-star he was pretty mediocre and I expect more of the same.

How do you figure? Out of anyone in the 2003 Class Id figure he would be the least likely to drop off. His game isn't that of an athletic above the rim type of guy. His game is that of Paul Pierce, and we see how long his career has lasted, he is what you call a true basketball player. NO HOMER! I dislike the truth with a passion but I can admit that he is also a true basketball player (one who counts on his ball skills as oppose to the athletic ability.
