Default If Miami wins the title, will Wade...

Magic in 1979. Centerpiece of the Lakers after Kareem went down in the finals.

This thread title should read "If Miami wins the title, Wade will..."

And the answer is...

Become the most overrated player ever for a period of time of no less than 3 months.

Shaq is still that team's MVP, regardless of what anyone wants to say, and it has NOTHING to do with game 6. It has everything to do with the impact he has which can't even begin to be measured by statistics except in the WINS column.

I agree Shogon, Wade right now is benefitting from the "SG next to Shaq"-Bonus. Both in reception of his play, as in him actually benefitting from Shaq making plays easy for him. He aint the scorer Kobe is, he aint the playmaker Penny was, but he merged qualities of them both in his play. He aint top 5, as many considered him this the last few weeks.

That said, he's playing at a lvl few guys that young were able to play at in the past.

I mean, yeah. Wade's a great player. Top 10 in the league, I'd say. But he is not the best player in the league, and he's not the MVP on his own team. Does Miami need him to win a title? Of course. But they need Shaq moreso.

People say Shaq has played with great sidekicks, and he has... but sooner or later, once the success keeps following the one common factor between said sidekicks, people just have to wake up and face reality. The Heat were a .500 ballclub over 20 games without Shaq. End of story.

Wade without Shaq = No finals
Shaq without Wade = No finals

They need both. That's all that matters.

actually Shaq needs any slashin guard who can draw contact, draw double teams, hit jumpers.

I bet if Vince Carter were on the Heat in place of Wade, and Vince played like he gave a damn ALL the time, and not settle for outside jumpers all the time, then Vince would be in the Finals too.


or better yet, put Paul Pierce on the team and put him back at SG. Finals.


or put TMac on the team, Finals.

The Facts:

Shaquille O'Neal and Dwyane Wade are equal integral parts of the Miami Heat.

Point Blank. Period.

Without Shaq, they is no conteding sucess

Without Wade, they is no contending sucess.

But, Shaq is the truly irreplaceable piece...

So yes when it all boils down too, This is "Shaq's team".

The one and most important thing is, they is no care or ego surrouding the "Who's team it is".

They just want to get it done...

And Wade is only overrated to people who get riled up based off a media perception and a couple of ignorant people...

The General concesus of Dwyane Wade is a top 7-10 player, and top 3 perimeter/SG type player.

That's true, but how many bigs could you put on the Heat in place of Shaq and be guaranteed a Finals? Pretty much nobody.

Maybe Duncan... maybe. And that's it.

which is why Shaq is more important to the team.


but my original post was not tryin to claim Wade was the MVP of the team. merely asking if he would be the youngest to win a ring bein the central part of the offense. And I guess Magic trumps that
