He has become one of the league’s most constant complainers. Wade has occasionally been guilty of not getting back on defense because he’s allowed himself to be delayed to complain about non-calls. On Christmas Day, as he was on his way to the locker room to get treatment after a minor leg injury, Wade stopped to complain to officials about not drawing a foul on the previous play.
Like with the questionable fouls, Wade often stops short of being aggressive enough to draw discipline.
All of this is unbecoming of Wade’s stature in the game. He did not behave like this during the early years of his career as he soared in popularity and earned the respect of the league. As he’s become a veteran, his personality has appeared to change somewhat on the floor.
In that way, he has been compared by some league executives to Garnett, whose trash-talking and menacing have come to define the later stages of his career. This is not endearing to Garnett, though he’s never seemed to care whatsoever.
Who could have seen this coming? Hm...
SG: Wade - I think he'll have a small step back this year with lots of awkwardness as LeBron continues to try to shine the light on an older, slower, less consistently hustling player. Wade likes being a superstar. He works his butt off, he is a top 5 or 6 player still. If not? We'll see.
Trade Wade for young players and cap breathing room!!!!
