Just for a second, forget the shell of his former self that you're seeing out of Dwyane Wade these days. Because, while being overly critical of Wade's fragility is the norm nowadays, when he was healthy, there just weren't many players who could do what D-Wade did out there every night. You see, when D-Wade was the man out in Miami, you expected him to go out there and fill up the stat sheet, scoring somewhere in the mid-20s, snatch four to five boards, dish out at least five dimes and even add a couple steals and maybe a block, too. It was the type of play that garnered talk of him being one of the best shooting guards of this decade and rightfully so.
