The Heat will use Wade up and spit him out when they are finished.

I think we should start a new drinking game.....Everyone takes a shot everytime Spo says that a situation is fluid.

The reality, Wade can be the point guard ALL game long save for you things. You need to have someone else on the court with him that can guard the quicker point guards (something no one on our team has proven they can do, including Chalmers) in the league and you need someone on the court with him that can bring the ball past mid-court under pressure (can Cook do this? I'm not sure).
I also wouldn't mind seeing him playing more minutes at SF. He is our best PG, SG, and SF. But our next best player in those position is Cook...so unless you slot Cook to be a PG, or SF, it make sense to slot to one side or the other a bit more.
The problem is we needed another good combo guard (because the reality is this team doesn't need ANY real point guards).
In reality we still have 2 huge problems on this team and neither can Wade really fix. One is that we are getting severly outrebounded way too often, and #2 is our PG allow WAY TOO MUCH penetration which is creating all the gyrations in our defense....fix #2 and you may find #1 is fixed as a by-product.

The REAL reality is that we have a 19 year old (Beasley), a 20 year old (Cook) and a 21 year old (Chalmers) who are still learning how to play the game playing major minutes, and are being led by a 26 year old (Wade) and a 28 year old captain (Haslem). Couple that with losing a great vocal leader who led by example (Zo).

That's the reality. But considering that the team has already double the number of wins from last year, the future looks bright.

I don't know about the rest of you but I think we should look elsewhere in 2010. This whole Dwayne Wade thing isn't working. I'd trade Wade for Paul and sign Amare in 2010.
