Would Wade's NBA legacy be greater had LeBron never taken his talents to South Beach?

Did the Big 3 era ultimately help or enhance Wade's overall NBA legacy? Kevin Durant signing with the Golden State Warriors has been the talk of the NBA and will continue to be the talk of the league for this upcoming season. Many fans defending Durant's much criticized decision have referenced The Decision, saying that what KD did is no different than what LeBron James did when he took his talents to Miami in 2010. Charles Barkley, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan all voiced their displeasure with Durant's departure, saying they would have never joined a rival. Reggie Miller took it a step...

Five Stars: 2008-09

Miami’s 21st season would see the Heat make a triumphant return to the playoffs with a 43-39 record - good enough for third place in the Southeast Division and a fifth-seed in the opening round of the postseason. Although the team lost in the first round, in seven games to the Atlanta Hawks, they did welcome a host of new faces to the team - but not the Top Star. First Star Dwyane Wade 2047.4 Wade was far and away the First Star for the 2008-09 Heat, nearly tripling the Second Star’s cumulative GameScore. He led the NBA with a 36.2% usage rate, racked up a league-third 14.7 Win Shares,...

Heat's odds update in the wake of Dwyane Wade's departure

Just how much of a loss it's been to the Heat that Wade is gone will be known soon enough on the court, but what are the odds they can stay competitive in the East? It was a summer like no other in Miami. Yes, you could make the comparison of the departure of LeBron James a couple of years back. However, LeBron was never a Heat guy through and true. Dwayne Wade was, and has always been, the face of the franchise dating back to 2003 -€” when the Heat selected him fifth overall in the NBA Draft. Wade's departure is obviously disappointing and definitely hurts the club, but the future is...

NBA voters gave Wade and Heat veterans a lot of love, but little respect

How valuable were Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng and Joe Johnson last season when none of them received a single vote for any All-NBA team? ESPN predicts the Miami Heat to win 36 games in the 2016-17 because, "The franchise leader in scoring and the guy who helped bring three titles to Miami is gone, as are Luol Deng and Joe Johnson." The 12-game drop-off in wins comes despite the Heat retaining Hassan Whiteside, the only Heat player to receive any All-NBA votes, two rookies to garner All-Rookie First Team votes, Justise Winslow (47) and Josh Richardson (2), and Whiteside snaring 44 First-Place...

Five Stars: 2004-05

Season 17 of the Heat featured the pairing of Shaq and Wade, two Jones, and UD’s best season (so far). Miami’s 17th season would be the true start of Miami’s second era of winning basketball, and would see them post a 59-23 record for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. They made quick work by sweeping the New Jersey Nets and the Washington Wizards in the first two rounds of the postseason before getting eliminated in the Eastern Conference Finals versus the Detroit Pistons in a seven-game dogfight.

Miami Heat Offseason Review: The Youth Revolution is On

The long-time face of the franchise is gone, as the Miami Heat begins Year One of its rebuild. Miami Heat 2015-16 Record:48-34 (T-1st in Southeast Division; T-3rd in Eastern Conference) Key Additions: Dion Waiters, James Johnson, Derrick Williams Key Losses: Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Joe Johnson The first time the Miami Heat take the floor in the 2016-17 season will be an odd one. For the first time since the 2003-04 season, Dwyane Wade will not be leading the Heat into battle. The squad that takes the floor that night will be a far cry from the one that eliminated the Charlotte Hornets...
