    Was Wade ever the best player in the league?

    Never really thought of as the best during his hey in the moment but looking back, there were 3 years I think he had a solid case, it's hard to substantiate tho. I've been wanting to make this thread ever since this BS podcast where he was saying Wade might've deserved Rose's MVP, saw the other thread mention him. Also been watching the Redeem Team highlights recently, Wade might be underrated.

    He was named eastern conference player of the month six times, including four times between 2008 and 2010. But for an entire season? No.

    I may be a little biased as a heat fan but Iím saying he was the best in the world in 06 just like Pat Riley when he did what he did to carry us to our first championship. Then I think he was backing that claim up In 06-07 when he was leading the MVP race and destroyed his rotator cuff. 07-08 was full of injury where he ended up shutting it down and getting multiple knee surgeries.

    Then like you said 08 came and he was the MVP of the redeem team, the following season put up a stat line that had never and still has never been put up before and finished top 3 in MVP and DPOY voting. 09-10 was still great, and then in 10-11 he was the best. Iíve been rewatching the 2011 playoffs at the gym when I do cardio and heís just flat out been the best player, Iím currently finishing up him going ape **** against the Celtics to win in 5.

    So in my eyes he was the best in 05-06, 08-09, 09-10, 10-11. I left out 06-07 because of injury but that year was actually better than 08-09 prior to his injury. As a heat fan Iím sticking to those 4 years because I donít think thereís anyone clear cut better than him and then you have to look deeper in to it with who is going to be able to carry your team if they have to for a championship and we know Wade can.

    But I agree he is underrated and I think homer goggles off thereís 2-3 years where if someone said he was the best in the world you shouldnít be mad about it.

    No, he was never the best player in the game at any point and was not really top 3 until about 09 or so and that only lasted 2 seasons. He was top 5 for a few years.

    League no. SG maybe a year or two. Wade Became on of the best slashers but he had a busted shot. Trying to get to the rim cut short both him and Drose career and peak. These two players did not reach their full potential.

    No, and no. Best SG, yes, maybe? I'd say he was for about a year, maybe two arguably.

    His midrange was deadly, trying to get to the rim didnít cut his prime but not having a meniscus in his knee did.

    Youíre still hurt about the other thread, itís ok that he had a better peak than Kobe. Kobe is better all time and thatís all that really matters, take a step back and calm yourself

    There was on off-season where I remember distinctly conversation about whether Wade was the new best player in the NBA. very short-lived.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...
