Wade truly has the heart of a champion. I hope this decision does not ultimately ruin the remainder of his NBA career. The Heat have done well with the elevated play of Shaquille O'neal and others, but Wade adds extra horsepower to the engine. Hopefully he'll be ok. I'm with you D-Wade...GO HEAT!!

Finally something to look forward to. He should be fine, although the deeper they get into the playoffs the odds of re-injuring increases. But then again, the team's odds of winning a 2nd championship greatly increase when he's on the floor. It's a catch 22 scenario.

Umm, as the article states, "The difference is the NBA now allows players to wear shoulder protection that extends beyond the uniform, which could prove of benefit to Wade."

So they do now allow the kind of shoulder protection that can benefit Wade...

This might be something for them to revisit for the future, on the surface it makes no sense.

I am such a big D-Wade fan. Even before he became a 2006 World Champ. I noticed him in the Eastern playoffs in 2004 and he is such a big part of the MIAMI HEAT team offensively and defensively. But as most have stated we still have the DIESEL, Posey, Jones and the rest of the Heat Team. I am behind Wade's decision and just pray that he doesn't do more damage to his shoulder. GO D-WADE / HEAT.

DWade is gonna bring another title to Miami. Mavs might play very good now, but come playoff time and Miami will abuse them....

THANK GOODNESS!!!!!!!! I say atleast try to come back 70% of Wade is better than 1/2 of the east coast teams we will face in the playoff's. I love this guy's heart! I just hope he stays with us for the long run!

Call me a skeptic but I see a little gamemanship here. This young man need some rest and what better way to get it. He played all of last year including for US Basketball team. Shaq got his, Riley got his now it is time for Wade to get his. Alonzo did get some rest too. Now we can watch them go at the playoffs. Might not repeat but will give us eastern folks something to watch.

All Right. I am psyched. Let's go. We are going all the way. Wade is the man. Don't worry fans. He's gonna take us deep into the play offs and have offseason surgery and be fine next year. We might win it again.

Great move on wades part.

Not such a good decision. i dislocated my shoulder back in October, didn't have surgery, and even now if I try to make a throw I still feel it. The heat will make it to the playoffs but be sure other teams are gonna go for his shoulder every time.

So, endless ego has Wade rushing back, even if makes no sense in the long haul. But I must admit, a new turbo-charged wheelchair will be a nice wrinkle when dishing out charges (which are never called).

Wade is such a true athlete at everything he tries to do this kid is amazing. I love the way he plays and his style is awesome. In my opinion he is one of the greatest in the NBA but seriously I was hoping Wade would relax and get the surgery. It is better off getting the surgery rather than dislocating it again and then it could get worse. But that is just DWade he has so much energy. I dont know but if you watch his game he takes a beating every night and does most of the dirty work. But seriously I wanted DWade to just chill he has done his part for the team because of the injury was so great. I am pretty sure a lot wanted to see DWade get the surgery because getting injured again will not be any better for him. Good luck DWade.

Wade is a fool to proceed as he states,because he will not be at anywhere near 100% when he returns, which combined with the diminished performances of the 1-year older supporting cast (Think Payton, Mourning, Shaq, Walker) means there is no legitimate reason to think they can literally repeat as NBA Champs (imagine what Dallas will do to Wade in the Finals, for example). All he is doing is assuring that not only will the Heat have no chance this year, but next year, too, when he is out unti January 1, 2008, and the grandpa-squad is another year older (Riley will not trust Wayne Simeon & Dorrel Wright, as he in fact should, to carry the load next year). Why throw away 2 seasons out of foolish pride; Wade is kidding himself if he thinks he's like Jordan, just showing up is enough. Riley should show some leadership and tell Wade it's over, then de-activate him, so D-Wade has no choice but do the right thing.
Okay buddy. Whatever you say.

I guess I would be nervous if I was a Mavs too after seeing him run circles around them last year.

Is the doc sure enough? How much does this doc know? DWade needs his health first.

Those 2 docs have see that same dislocation every day of their lives x's 20+ years in practice....I think they know. Oh did I forget to mention they went to school for 10 years after college to master their craft....I think D-Wade knows the risks.
