Do you keep him for potential and chemistry purposes? Or let him go?

Disagree. Mid-Range jumper is a difference maker. Making good passes and penetrating effectively. Keep watching the WBC.

I have been. That ninja hasn't been ULTRA effective or anything. I'd rather had Iverson, or Billups in his spot right now.

That's a really bad idea.

Billups I couldnt argue with but Paul will shine before it's all said and done.

Actually Dwyane Wade is Team USA's leading scorer...over over Carmelo with 7 less field goal attempts...

Through the 5 exhibitions and the 2 pool play games he's shooting 57%...he's not going anywhere...Wade's outside shooting will undoubtedly improve dramatically by 2008

Wade has a weak ass jumper. If Wade's jumper became automatic from every where... he'd be the best player in the game. Until then, he is still broke.

If he keeps shooting 57% like he has throughout, it would be scary what he could do with a jumper huh? It would be around 66% like it was against the Pistons...

That 66% wasn't due to jumpers. It was from getting to the bucket, my ninja. Watch the games, wash your ass. He can't shoot jumpers. Fact. That is why my guy Kirk Hinrich had dude on lock in the first round. Wade was in handcuffs. Stand by the basket, and he can't do anything.

My 2008 team would look like...(too bad it would never happen)...

Paul/Arenas/Hinrich
Wade/Bryant/Carter
Anthony/Artest/McGrady
James/Garnett/Josh Smith
Howard/Stoudemire/Oden

There will obviously be developmental progression...thats why I included Josh Smith and Oden...too get it down to 12 I would probably cut...McGrady, Hinrich and Oden...assuming Stoudemire returns to at least 90% of what he used to be...

I really wanted to put Ray Allen on but Vince is just better all around and his stroke from 19'9" is probably not far off...and I want another Freddy Weis poster...

My dream USA team would be vicious. Better than the '92 Dream Team. Or at least would give them a run for their money.

PG Kidd / Iverson
SG Bryant / Allen
SF Artest / Carter
PF McGrady / Garnett / J. Oneal
C Shaq / Duncan / Howard

Team probably wouldn't be beat. Ever.

I spot some wet J's...and he just makes it look so easy getting to the basket...unless the shot clocks running down just dunk on people...(layups & dunks are seemingly high percentage shots, you take what you can get...so he gets them)

Wade destroying the Pistons to the tune of 66% shooting from the field...lots and lots of dunks...some jumpers...and oh...even a few three's...

And ummm...three games Wade shot 50% or better against the Bulls in that series...3 games he struggled...Hinrich does as well or better than anyone against him...but he still shot 50% in game 5 and 58% in game 6...and went 3-4 from trey...once the Bulls became a threat...meanwhile Hinrich shot 41% for the series, with a 23% showing in the pivotal game 5...with 6 turnovers...its a lot harder to keep up your stamina on the offensive end when your expending that much energy on defense...most guys dont...seems like he wore Hinrich out...

3 games is a good chunk of games being held down. especially for a 'superstar'. and of course he is going to wear hinrich out. hinrich isn't built to be a number one option on offense. put he put that work in on defense, and in the process had a team that should've been swept, stole 2 games from the NBA champs, with no true superstar. And yes, Wade got lucky with his 3 ball. Pistons and others were letting him shoot it, cause they know he can't hit it consistently. I mean, this is the same dude who shot 17% from 3-point land. HAHA
