Player profile

.Wade plays the shooting guard position, but is also capable of playing point guard.^ Intelligent and efficient point guard play from the steady dribble of Andre Miller .

^ Derrick Rose is one of my favorite point guards, a position I play.

^ Kobe and Lebron play in the modern NBA, and I don't care if the players of old were even physically or athletically capable of guarding Lebron or Kobe.

.On offense, he has established himself as one of the quickest and most difficult players to guard in the NBA. Wade's signature one-two step allows him to dash past bigger defenders and occasionally get the extra foul shot.^ Wade went through a lengthy pregame workout, shooting from long range, pull-ups and foul shots before pronouncing himself fit to go.
