DWYANE WADE (MIA)
SG • 6’4, 220 lbs; 16th year, Marquette
NBA ROLE: VETERAN SHOT CREATOR/LEADER
Dwyane Wade, one of the greatest two guards to ever lace ’em up, is back in South Beach for the final stretch of his (storied) career; even at age 36, Wade has retained some of his takeover ability – doesn’t get to the line as much anymore but has reinvented himself as a post-up scorer, midrange attacker & strategic rim driver (loves doing damage on the left side); Wade’s present-day game is basically just a remixed version of the past 16 seasons – he’ll still avoid contact before a euro lay-in but has avoided absorbing contact & flying into the first row in recent years; automatic turnaround fadeaway – Wade’s able to unleash his go-to shot over almost any defender; injury prone but has mastered the art of picking his spots and contributing at a high level when needed most; defense has taken a step back but when healthy, Wade remains a very capable scorer & leader on a game-to-game basis; icon to co-star in Miami, will spend (much-deserved) farewell tour helping Miami return to the postseason
THAT’S HOW (THE F***) YOU DO IT!
