Default Trade Wade

Pat Riley has to trade Wade during the off season. Regardless of the result during the post-season.

Why ? Well look at this image. You will notice that Wade is averaging 4 less minutes from last year, averaging 1 less FGA, saw a decline in his FG%, is shotting the 3 worse than last year, is shooting it 1.5FG3PA less than last year.

He also goes to the line 2 less times than last year, getting 1.5 less rebounds than last year.

And despite the reduced minutes, his TO and PF didn't go down that much.

And cherry on the cake, he is averaging 3 less points than last year. THat's his worse since his rookie season and his FGA isn't that down compared to other years, heck it's the same than his second season by example.

Now Bear in mind he ALSO was injured for part of the season.


Yep, Wade is declining. And he is declining pretty fast at that.


So, Trade Wade

The picture.

Bro, look at the stats. Should they trade him NOW that he has great value OR wait some years and trade him when he isn't a superstar anymore ?

And at the pace he is declining, that will be fast.

Well yes, but let's not act like it's not symptomatic of something. All his stats are more or less going down. He never averaged LESS minutes than now. He was injured for part of the season.

Wade is 29. He is at the twilight of his career.

LeBron's "don't give a @#*%" attitude is rubbing off on him so he's taking it easy in his old age. They both need to play as though the other isn't there, and murder the basket at every opportunity like every bucket really counts.

I really don't believe Wade is truly declining physically, though. He's just going to have to make some adjustments with age, and use more strength and less speed.

Do agree. There's no need for two alpha dogs in a team. One alpha dog and a good second and third option with tons of role players makes a great team. When Wade gets hot and demands the ball, it might cool down Lebron's game and vice versa. Heats need a legit big man with a post up game and good rebounding. Bosh doesn't cut it. He's a jump shot and lay-up big man.

Deep into the playoffs, they're going to need a big man that can score down low and ride on one alpha player to get hot.

Wade needs to finish better. He's been blowing a shocking amount of easy layups.

Trade Bosh for a low post scoring big man. Draft a shooting PF in the 2012 NBA Draft.

Chris Bosh for Al Jefferson is a fair trade.

That's true too. Through out the season, i've seen many silly TO's and miss layups.

He's still not yet 100% Healthy. If I am the Coach of the Heat I will deactivate Wade until the last 3 games of the season. Miami needs a healthy Wade in the post season.

That's because when he gets to the basket, he sees this:

Do so. I fail to see how Wade performing or not in the playoff would infirm anything about how fast he is declining or not.

Hech, my first statement is "Trade him regardless of the results".
