Default 2006 Eastern Conference Finals: Wade Goes OFf

the 06 Finals performance gets talked about more but this series was also pretty sick. Wade absolutely destroyed Prince and the Pistons elite defense.

I don't remember his numbers from that series on top of my head, but it was something like 28\6\6 on anywhere from 55-60% FG

And this is when Prince was still an elite perimeter defender with the Wallace boys behind him. Amazing the way he was able to pick apart that defense. He was getting to every spot he wanted on the court with ease

He was also really sick for the 6th game of this series and ended up with only 14 points on 6-15 shooting. So his final numbers of that series would have been even higher if not for that.

This series gets lost in the shuffle because of his finals performance, but it was definitely one of, if not, his best.

Wade shot well over 60% for the series.

That year Detroit had the #1 ranked defense again, and the Pistons had a franchise record 62 wins

Wade trashed them as the Pistons went out of style into the night

If he didn't go down in the 05 ECF, we could've had a Miami-SA Finals (don't get me wrong though, Pistons-Spurs was solid). Shaq was arguably MVP that season as well, so it could've been a ridiculous series.

Shaq had 28 points on 12-14 shooting
Jason Williams had 21 points on 10-12 shooting

Can you imagine if that was Kobe? You would here him getting "carried" to no end.

Yup. On Prince too, who just two seasons prior REALLY put the shackles on Kobe (with his length)

Thus why Kobe / Laker stan 90's detractors don't understand, length limits an offensive player's game more if he doesn't have foot speed, or if he settles for tough jumpers (Kobe) ... and it's why teams felt the need to limit Jordan's attack game, but usually putting 6'2 - 6'4 players on him in order to match quickness and foot speed.

2004, 2005, and 2006 Pistons didn't have someone to match quickness. Billups could guard old Jason Williams and Gary Payton, but he didn't have the speed to guard Wade.

That's why Wade ALWAYS struggles with the Bulls. They usually have a small guy who can defend. Wade's kryptonite is Kirk Hinrich. A 6'2 maybe 6'3 non athletic white guy who knows angles on defense, is physical, and has tremendous anticipation and lateral quickness.

Wade sodomized Prince two seasons in the row in 2005 and 2006. Why? Because he was a relentless attacker who could break you down off the dribble and wasn't afraid to ATTACK the rim.

It's why these two guys (Kobe and Wade) are the two sides of the greater player, Jordan.

Wade is his quickness, speed, attacking, finishing ability, and help defense (blocks, steals)

Kobe is his skill, footwork, jumper, post game, and man defense abilities (lock down when he tries)

Jordan made you pick your poison, he could play like either of these guys. Wade is a poor man's '85 - '89 Jordan. Kobe is basically for much of his career a younger version of '96, '97, and '98 Jordan. Making him basically a rich man's older Jordan.

Peak MJ is both of these guy's strengths combined, in the most devastating perimeter attack of all-time '90 - '93 Michael Jordan. Otherwise known, as the best player of all-time.

This haunts Heat fans to do this day
