So you tell me, who’s really going to pay him to sit on the bench for majority of the season…he’s no longer the “Flash” that once lit up the arenas. Kevin Martin is making $7 mil a year and playing 33mins a game, and avg 24pts…why should Wade get more?
You're really thick. First, Kevin Martin doesn't play defence, and is a one-dimensional scorer. Second, the Heat have been saying Wade won't be properly healthy until December, and so they are working him back slowly, and with caution, because you know, they have the big picture in mind (Rashard Lewis had the same knee treatment and said it took 6 months to fully recover - supported by the fact he was shit last season, and has been very good so far this season). The T-Wolves don't have to worry about that because they are first-round fodder. Thirdly, K-Mart has been playing much better than he did the last 2 seasons, and if he'd been playing this well then, he'd be earning more money.
In short: you are full of shit.
