Wades knees never gonna be the same,4pts vs Cats
 
3rd season in a row with knee problems.I know it's early but he's had rest already and he starting training almost 2 months ago with grover . It's not that the talent isn't there ,the health isn't .its just who he is now like amare,nash.he can't hold up consistently.a lot of guys were saying this after he got injured before the playoffs,now I think it's prob true.He was getting 21/5/5 1blk 2.5stls on 50% in his last 8gms before the bobcats 4pt night.basically avg what he did last season so he kind of tricks you into thinking he's back .hes still is gonna have a vintage game every week or 2 making you think he can be a superstar full time again,but it's clear he can't be.i don't think I've ever seen a guy with so many deep peaks and valleys.i wonder if we'll continue to guess if he'll ever return to form if he does this for the rest of his career.

He'll have a great game and people will assume he's back and he's finally healthy. Truth be told, he's obviously been on a decline, Wade from a few years ago was averaging +27 points wasn't he? I remember it was always him and Kobe going for the top spots. Wade is reduced to a lesser role but its obvious his knees are the problem.

The ossatron treatment he had takes time to fully recover from. Rashard Lewis had it last year and he said he didnt feel right until around January. And this was with him not even playing much in that time span.

To be fair he was going up against the almighty cats tho, look at bosh, he can't ever stay on the court:confusedshrug:

And yet...He'll have yet another handful of dominant games in a key/critical playoff games, thus propelling the Heat to a fourth title in it's franchise history.

Here's the thing that Heat haters don't realize, Miami doesn't need Wade to be dominant or the "Old Wade" every night. As long as he can maintain spurts of dominance in key and critical situations, the Heat will be on top. And that's why you play on a great team. :applause:

Not ready to play back-to-backs yet obviously.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xb-2dQtFHZ8 <--- This game was the last time where he looked like his normal self, he was never the same after this game. He was playing like 2011 Wade prior to this. Now he's not even playing like an all-star. SMH.

You're going overboard. Dude just had an 18 point, 8 assist, 8 steals game the other night. And was 20-5-5 on 50% shooting, before his numbers took a dip from sitting much of the second half last night.

That's just one game, he's looked average besides that game and the LAC game. Where's the consistency? He hasn't even been playing better than a guy like JJ Redick so far.

Wade always proves us wrong so he'll probably pick it up later on, but he's not even close to the player he was 1-2 years ago. Not even close.

Beasley would love to take over Wade's minutes. But he gotta earn their trust that he is going to stay out of trouble for the year.

Sub 10 point game = D-Wade's done his knees are a mess!

25+ point game = He is back to his finals MVP form, Miami's Batman!

Get your head out of your ass. He is just inconsistent as hell, even with knee troubles which more or less every player hovering around 30 years old has.

At this point in his career I doubt Wade really cares about the regular season too much for him to go 100% every game and to feature in every game. It's the best decision for Wade and the heat for him to go on a minutes count every other game so he's 100% for the postseason.

He has obviously declined but he's still a very good player and it looks like he's going to turn into a Manu Ginobolli type of player which isn't a bad thing at all.

Re: Wades knees never gonna be the same,4pts vs Cats
 
He's clearly declined, its not even arguable. At this stage of his career he's not meant to go all out for the entire season + playoffs. The last season he had that in him was 2011. When playoffs roll around if he is smart with his body I see no reason why he can't beast for a two-month span. Even in one of his most injury riddled seasons last year he had flashes of absolute greatness, during the 27 game win-streak he was playing godly defense and efficient and unselfish basketball on offense. Gotta rest and preserve him now though.
