Bonafides From 2002-2012: 2006 NBA Champion and Finals MVP, 8x All-Star, 2x All-NBA First Team
One third of the most hated on “Big 3” to ever be assembled, the elder spokesman for the group has wowed throughout the Complex Decade. This dude wins, and with style. He led Marquette to a Final Four in 2003, then won a title and Finals MVP in 2006. He can ball out of his mind when it counts in the 4th quarter and the playoffs, and has an uncanny ability to take it the hole strong and finish with contact. Not to mention he's just a really likable dude, bagged Gabrielle Union, and has toughness to him that the greats do. D Wade is just winning at life, and he's definitely worthy of being called one of the best athletes of this era.
