Hopefully they do work out together this offseason. Ray can get Wade to work on his balance when shooting... no more fading away! :evil:

as far as i can tell, wade is the key to beating LA or an improved OKC squad
if wade plays poorly (probably due to injury) i dont think lebron can save us from LA or OKC

Riley knew Howard was going to the Lakers, that's why he made sure both Wade & Bosh missed the olympics. He also went and picked up a player , he knows hates kobe. He has also told Lebron to keep it cool during the olympics

Wade knows he needs to be Wade next season
Stop being so disrespectful.

Wade was playing at a high level before the injury, which is why it funny when people say he's on the decline, then those same people will turn and say "LeBron has a PRIME Wade" to aide their argument when they want to say LeBron has "so much" help when trying to discuss his legacy.

But I don't think we have to worry, Wade thrives on being doubted(himself and the team) we should see him back with a fury.

Look for Wade's jump shot to be vastly improved once he's healthy. Shooting with a constantly hurting knee will kill your percentages and his shooting wasn't even that poor. With that being said, I'm not worried about him. He'll bounce back strong and help us to repeat.

I hope he can just improve his 3 point shot, not necessarily for now, but for when he starts declining, which I don't believe has happened yet. He could play a style similar to Harden's, hopefully without the flopping, once he starts losing explosiveness where he could spot up on the 3 point line, and either take the three, or pump fake and take it to the hole.

I've been saying it since last season - Wade will play better in 2012-2013 than he did in 2011-2012. It's all about injuries.

If he's really working on his jumpshot like he said he would - look out!

One thing (Among many) he doesn't get credit for is some of the momentum changing defensive plays he made in the playoffs. Some of those blocked shots were incredible.

Look at Kobe's comments on the Lakers becoming Dwight's team 2-3 years down the line, and compare that to what Wade said last year about LeBron.

This so much. He made so many effort plays in the Playoffs, even when he was struggling to score. Too bad this type of stuff gets unnoticed while Kobe still gets 1st Team All-Defensive smh

Amen brother, preach out to the brethren out there. The KoBEEs always want more, Kobe gets all these defensive 1st-2nd teams when he can't defend Chris Quinn for ****.

Still I see the KoBEEs want more and they drag out that Kobe actually was the CO-MVP with Wade in the 08 Olympics, even though, you know, Wade outscored him on so much better efficency, in less minutes, with better all around stats, and more points in the final game including one of these clutch buckets Kobe got praised/crowned MVP/Boss/Jesus/Whatever for.

I think Wade will have a GREAT year but in a pretty different way then ever before, I think we will see him evolve into more of a faclilator on offense and more of a ball handler as we will look to surround our Big 3 with 2 shooters to space the floor which will put the ball handling responsiblities on Wade overall. I think we will see Wade (and Bosh also) carry us early on in the season while letting Lebron be Lebron (but not world beater style) so that Lebron can catch his breath for the stretch run.

I always have said that when the day came that Dwyane had to refine his game and rely more on his mid range attack and post game he would improve, adjust and remain as effective as ever. That time is now.

IF Lebron and DWade are firing on all cylinders with this supporting cast I will take our chances against ANYBODY. ANYBODY.

I'm more excited about seeing D-Wade dominate this year than I am about seeing LeBron. @LEIF made a great point about how Dwyane's game is going to evolve and I fully expect him to return to be an improved midrange shooter and a defensive stalwart this season and into the playoffs. Signing Ray Allen really tacked on an extra 2-3 high quality seasons onto Dwyane Wade's career.....IF THEY DON'T WANT TO SEE THE LIGHT, MAKE THEM FEEL THE HEAT!!!! (that's my motto for the 2012-2013 campaign)....

i dont think we will see a big improvement in wades shooting. maybe he can just get back to the level he was back in 08-09 or something close to it. however as i see lebron operating down low more next season i think d-wade will prob be up there in terms of career highs in assists.

people like to look at how he struggled shooting the ball in the post season but in reality the guy was making monster plays for us. against the thunder the wade/bosh pick and roll was lethal

i want wade to just focus on getting in the best shape possible, continue to work with lebron and bosh on those pick and rolls and not attack the rim as recklessly as he usually does.

i see wade putting up another great year

23ppg
6 apg
5 rpg
1 bpg
1 spg

with improved shooting percentages and less turnovers and career low in minutes

Its about a month until training camp starts so it will be tough to guage how much of a difference his shot will be in terms of consistency. Maybe Wade will "resurrect" the vaunted Noacs' arc? I'm pretty sure everybody remembers Wade using the Noah's arc during last season and not only did it do wonders for his FT shooting, it was the best stretch of outside shooting I've seen Wade do in years.

I wonder if it was the lack of practice with the machine or his knee (which would influence your jumpshot heavily)? As Zasterror posted Wades' interview on pg 3, he could barely practice during the playoffs. and in between games at was pretty much all rehab gettng his knee ready for games. You combine this with the fact that Wade is a rhythm shooter, with no opportunity to practice and playing on a bad knee and you get the Wade we saw this past postseason in terms of his jumpshot.

I too hope that Wade gets back on the Noah's Arc. I was so proud of him shooting nearly 90% from the FT line for a nice portion of his season last year.

I agree with his shooting slump being caused by injury, because as you said he a) didn't have proper lift and stability in his legs and b) wasn't able to work on his shot in between games, which is something every player has to do. I've said it numerous times, the condensed schedule was a killer for players who got injured because you couldn't take the time you usually do to heal your injury or else you'd miss too many games. As a result of it, you'd play hurt, probably suffer a worse or a different injury because you favor another leg etc. Look at Rose and how he was never really able to return or how even Dwight Howard suddenly suffered a freak injury. Last season's schedule was a killer for everyone.

Thus, I'm sure he'll be fine next season. His jumper isn't broken, his mechanics are fine, he just needs to establish some sort of practice/playing rhythm with it in order to be consistent from the outside.

The mistake, Dwyane Wade said, was going public with his intent of hiring a shooting coach this offseason.

"So many people starting calling me after that. Everybody was trying to work with me. I had to call my agent to make it stop," the Miami Heat guard said with a laugh amid his book tour, which Saturday included a stop at the Dolphin Mall to autograph copies of "A father First: How my life became bigger than basketball."

The reality, Wade said, is what he really needed was a catching coach.

In the wake of a season where he felt his jumper got away from him, Wade said upon further review it was not as much about how he was shooting the ball as how he was going through that motion.

Now, with training camp three weeks away, he believes he has a grasp on the situation.

"I have one of the best mid-range shots in the league," he said. "But, obviously, when you have different injuries, it makes you change a little bit. So it's just about getting back to that comfort of it and finding out where you are now.

"My midrange game is very important to me. The biggest thing is coming out of my pull-up without losing the ball and just making sure it comes through my hand the right way. When it comes to my shot exactly, I don't have a bad shot. There's other reasons why I come up short a lot. So it's just trying to work the kinks out."
