He's an amazing player. But he's definitely overrated.

New rule: if your team is in DEAD LAST place, you can't be considered a top 10 player in the league. Just doesn't happen. Look at every other player: LeBron, Kobe, Nash, Dwight, Baron, KG, CP3, JKidd... ALL those guys are AT LEAST getting their teams to the playoffs this year. And even when KG had those abysmal years with NO help in Minnesota (as opposed to Wade, whose playing with Ricky Davis, Shawn Marion, and White Chocolate), he never finished in DEAD last.

Wade is a great player and a classy guy. But he's undoubtably overrated.

Wade has been playing injured for the whole season. You can't say he's overrated basing that on his play this season. If they suck again next year, with a healthy Wade, then it would be a valid point.

Eh. I don't buy it. Wade's injuries mysteriously seemed to get worse as the HEAT sunk deeper and deeper... until, finally, last week, when Wade decided to "officially" take the rest of the year off. Kinda seems more like an attempt to wipe his hands from the holocaust that was this season, to me.

Besides, it doesn't appear to be hurting his game. He's carrying his usual MO of 25 points, 7 assists, and 4 rebounds. Those are DWade's numbers. And they aren't helping the HEAT. And he's played in 51 games this year, at an average of 39 minutes a night... so that whole injury cop out isn't gonna work on me.

The best players don't let their team lose 33 out of 36. It just doesn't happen. He's overrated.
