I'd be very surprised if he leaves. Off the top of my head, there's only two other teams that could offer him a possibly better situation, and thats the Bulls and Nets. The Nets have great pieces, but considering they're on the verge of having the worst season ever, I just can't imagine him going there. The Bulls have great players, and definitely look like a team on its way up. However, Miami still has a good situation. First of all, its Miami. Second, the Heat have enough cap space to sign both Wade AND another max FA. Third, Michael Beasley is turning into a great player. Fourth, its been his home for the past 7 years. I see Wade staying.

He's not as explosive off two feet. Of course, you could attibute that to the weight he's put on.

wade's obviously having an off year and i don't blame him one bit.

he could be playing at 150% the level he is right now and it wouldn't make the slightest bit of difference to the heat's chances. he already learned this the hard way, and something's gotta change.

fortunately it will, for both parties.

Wade is in his prime right now.. I don't expect a serious decline for at least another 2-3 years. Last night was just one game, there's no reason to blow it out of proportion.

27-7-5 46% 1.8stls 1.2block ..with constant double teams..with elite defense and hes leading team to the playoffs...thats being off?

What kind of standards are you guys setting for this guy?...i read this forum and the guy is barely top 3 or top 5 for some people here...yet if he isnt putting up 30ppg on 50%fg..hes "not trying" ..hes "looking forward next year"..what the hell?

yes, that's being off.

as inconvenient as that is, wade has coped with far worse. he's having a poor season, and the onus is on heat fans to figure out where the problem lies...

if thats being off..then Kobe, Durant, Melo, Dirk..all those guys and everyone below them is having a bad year. Only guy in the entire league having a good year must be Lebron.

Look beyond the stats. If you have been watching wade this year it is very clear that he is not playing to his full capabilities. He's still a superstar but one gets the feeling his heart isn't 100% into it.

Difference between prime and PEAK. Last season was probably his peak, but if you think he's not in his prime anymore then you don't know what prime means.

im looking beyond the stats..and i see a guy that creates open shots for his teammates far more than the assists show, because of lack of finishers inside and inconsistent shooting.

And i see a guy that scores 27ppg the hard way..with few easy baskets and few assisted baskets because of the attention he commands...and the lack of respect teams have for the rest of the Heat players offensively.

I don't know. I think it's because his entire strategy has changed as far as team basketball goes. He doesn't really have to be that explosive anymore.

As for Wade, he still has a few more rings to win.

Kobe + Lebron together have not got double teamed so much time as Wade this year. And Wade still puts up those numbers. Past his prime?

No Sir
