Wade shot over 50% against the Pistons defense in the 05 series, and would have won a title that year if he didn't get injured when they were up 3 games to 2.
And for good measure Wade shot an astonishing 62% against that Pistons defense in the 06 series.
Great ability to take it to the rack >> contested jumpshots.
That why Wade is a better playoff performer. Wade's first 3 years were legendary playoff runs for such a new player in the league = we haven't seen a player play like that in the playoffs since Jordan.
Last year vs the Celtics in the playoffs? Wade averaging 34 pts on 57% shooting. Kobe ? 43%
and wade is a prime example of why JORDAN would dominate todays league.
