Dwyane Wade’s Early-Season Success Should Frighten Miami Heat Competitors
By the way Wade played on Friday night you’d think that No. 3 was stuck in the year 2006. Wade recorded a career-high eight steals against the Mavs as his red-hot season season continues with 17 points, eight assists and five rebounds in 36 minutes of action. Through eight games of play, Wade is averaging over 18 points a game and is shooting an impressive 50% from the field.
Due to a hard-nosed style of play, many wondered if the 2012-13 campaign was the last time that we had seen the “Old Wade.” Well, the 31-year-old Wade is battling Father Time and the Miami Heat guard doing a pretty good job if you ask me.
LeBron James is still the head honcho in the Miami, but it’s nice to see Wade playing at such a high clip. James, Wade and Chris Bosh have all remained extremely healthy over the years and this was supposed to be the season that one of those big three were bit hard by the injury bug — many pegged Wade as the most likely to go down. However, “Flash” is asserting his quickness once again as an eight-steal outing is a tell-tale sign that this illustrious NBA career is far from over.
