    i think that's premature. is he declining? of course; all athletes do after a certain point, and i think d-wade has probably passed it. but at the same time, to say he'll be useless in a few years seems really hyperbolic.

    His greatness can't last an entire season + playoffs. Inconsistency is when you see that a player is slowly falling off.

    What type of player do you see Wade being in a couple years when he can't solely rely on his athleticism?

    if he can't rely on his athleticism he'll retire, that's why they're athletes

    No, I said "solely" rely on athleticism which he clearly does now. Kobe certainly doesn't solely rely on athleticism which is why he's successful at his age even though his for the most part has diminished.

    Without a jumpshot and his otherworldly athleticism, how will Wade be any good?

    i'm not saying he'll be any good but you're acting like he's a season or two away from sucking ass, which i disagree with. he still has plenty of good seasons ahead of him

    Naw, you got me wrong. In my initial statement on the matter I just pointed out that Wade needs to develop a jumper or he's fucked when he gets to the point when he can't blow by his defender every possession.

    Via Frank Isola:
    Even Michael Jordan, watching the game on TV, was overheard saying "Damn, Miami gets a lot of calls."
    Damn, even MJ sees this shit.

    Wade has already started his transition from a great player to a crying flop-artist. He's still great at times, but those times will only get fewer and farther between. He is excellent at getting foul calls though.

    Wade will be 34 years old dropping 30 on his bank shots alone.. gtfo'here..
    the D Wade sucks!/D Wade is back! from game 2 game is getting old

    If you noticed D Wade has been getting the most D strategy against him this series...Doc hasn't drawn shit up on LeBron yet you see the traps on Wade consistently since Game 2...and in the Pacers series they had a stout young defensive stud named Paul George but Wade still had some epic performances

    Wade needs to stop begging for calls and get back on D is the only problem Wade has developed in his later years even though 93% of the time Wade looks for a call when one isn't called... it's a foul
