    Rondo is probably the best off-the-ball defender at the pg position. But on-ball, he's pretty average.

    If you count Avery Bradley as a pg, then Rondo isn't even the best defensive pg on his own team.

    Heat would be down 10-15 everytime... the team is awful without James. No shotblocking or post presence in the front court (Bosh can do a little, but he's better face up)... I mean, they rotate a bunch of 6'8, 6'9 guys at center. Haslem, Anthony are solid players, good hustle and good instinct, great- if you had them coming off the bench. Nobody else on the team can create... Wade really only creates for himself, the other guys that play 2 and 3 are shooters. Chalmers has had his moments but he can't really do much besides hit a couple 3's and slash when full attention is given to James/Wade.

    Well, to be fair it is not exactly a discussion to compliment Lebron so...

    How bad has Wade looked this postseason? I realize you're on the downside of your career in the NBA at 30, but this is a little extreme.

    Wade has been Gasol-ish.

    I can't say Wade is on the downside already, MJ was still in his peak up to his second retirement and he was 34-35 by then?
    Kobe is 34 now iirc and he is still balling and considering the amount of games he has played, he is probably 40-45 when it comes to NBA age.
    Wade should still be at his peak right now and a few years after. Wade and Lebron has been playing well throughout the season though, not sure why he is all of a sudden struggling in the post season.

    ^^

    He's hurt. Cant blame him too much. Last finals he was the best player on the Heat team.

    Is he really injured? It is barely mentioned while when Lebrons elbow was "bothering" him (even though he was chucking up 3's and making it) it was well documented by the press. Plus he just seems to wake up and play pretty damn well in the 4th. Not saying he isn't hurt (I really don't know) but he seems to play well enough on late quarters but just simply terrible in the beginning.

    They're off to a good start though. Finally started Bosh and it's working so far.Westbrook starting 0-5 and missing his ft. :lol: :brick:

    Wade had his knee drained before Game 2 of the Indiana series, played terribly then exploded in 3 4 5. Not the kind of thing you do unless you're hurting/limited seriously.
