Lets see he has the ball in his hands 100% of the time and he leads the heat in assists? Shocking!!!!

Its not very hard to dish out the ball when you never let anyone else touch it.

Defense is one of the answers, but how about age, how can you over come this one. Maybe reaching the play-offs is possible, I love the Heat, but going pass round one is asking a lot without Wade Gotta wait and see who is going to step up. Maybe Payton/ Walker/Posey will factor in and they will now play their game. Leadership has to come from them. Riley has to work Wright back into the game he makes mistakes, but brings in engery..Oh well my new slogan is .. I believe... Get well soon D-Wade.. Miss you out there..

If Shaq is going to provide the interior offense, then Jason Williams must create on the perimeter. With Wade out, Williams is the only member of the Heat who can effectively run the screen and roll, and his penetration will create offense for his teammates. Williams has missed 20 games this season with injuries (most recently a strained abdominal muscle), and if he gets hurt again, Miami will be in huge trouble. If Shaq and Williams can stay healthy and play well, the Heat can survive Wade's absence. They have solid role players Eddie Jones, Udonis Haslem, Alonzo Mourning and James Posey, among others but all of them depend on others to get them shots. O'Neal and Williams have the ability to make them all better, and if they do so, the Heat can still make the playoffs.

No I totally disagree. Without Wade we were still able to beat the Pistons, Wizards and the Cavs. If the whole team steps it up we are as good as anyone in the JV East. We still have Shaq who had 31 points the other night against the Pistons, Eddy Jones, Udonnis Haslem, J Williams, Kapono, Mourning, Walker, Posey and Wright who all contribute.
