So, in other words, of the 6 games Finals where he was MVP, he shot better than 50% only half the time. Sorry for saying, but that sucks. That means he totally needed those free throws.

he may get many FTs but he attacks even more...and can still score and play super competently without FTs...

Is it possible, and maybe I'm crazy, the reason he could go crazy from the floor was partially due to the ft's. Lets say that I'm Josh Howard ("I'm so underrated, even I never heard of myself") defending Wade. I foul him on a generouys ref call, then again on a generous call. Now I have 2 fouls in the first. Am I even getting within a foot of the guy for the rest of the game. Open things up a little bit.

Who is judging Wade solely on his ft's. Mostly people are just saying that he shoots a s-load of free throws and they are not all deserved. Even his stuanchest supporters have to admit that he gets some rep calls.
