JDub not quite he shares the load; u can ask a lot from ur star but at the end of the day he is still just a man!!!

The Heat stink. Shaq is finished, Wade may be too as he has not dunked since his returned. Shoulder looks fine. But that knee may not allow him to explode like he's used to. And the complimentary parts look more like spare parts. No bench. It's gonna be a long season.

It's not Jason Williams fault that Riley is dumbenough to believe in him. You reap what you sow. If your philosophy is to only acquire and give paying time to older 30+ players, you're going to underperform as they wear down. If it wasn't for Riley's short retirement, Dwayne Wade would still be on the bench "developing". Van Gundy had the guts to go with the youngsters.

<quoted text> hes an established star to KIDS! anyone over the age of 10 knows to be a superstar, you cant just be fast. to be a superstar, one has to be good in allll categories. what did he do in the finals? the fact that he has shaq on his team so not all the pressure is on him? or the fact that when hes triple teamed and takes ill-advised shots? or ever the fact that someone like kirk heinrich OWNS wade. im a heat fan, but the difference between you and me is i know bball because if you did, you would know wade is a poor defender, poor shooter(who cares what he did in the finals), and most of his points comes from free throws . next game just watch wade take it to the hole and listen, hes gonna scream to make it seem like he got fouled when hes just acting. what he did in the finals was a fluke, thats not in his game or he would do it night in and night out.
And please....even in the Finals, without the NBA wanting to make DWade the next poster child, the Mavs win that series. You don't go to the line 40 times in a game IN THE FINALS...especially in the last 10 seconds. There better be a head rolling on the court to get to the line in that situation. But not that year. Mark Cuban or DWade...the NBA struggling to reverse it's thug image...and you get phantom fouls and 40 foul shots a game. Makes the defense play you a little different when you come within 2 feet of someone and get called for a foul. I'm not saying DWade is a hack...but I don't like the fact that he acts like Jordan and expects to get calls that he hasn't earned and doesn't deserve.

Play him at center. Let Chris Quinn have revenge on Shaq for dissing him after going to Phoenix.

Let Shaq be on his poster. ;)
