When healthy, Dwyane Wade is still one of the best players in the Association. He followed a very good regular season with a so-so playoffs, and Miami followed suit. Hampered by injuries, Wade found it harder than ever to put on the cape when the Heat needed him, but most of the time he found a way to contribute. Wade is clearly in decline, and while any talk of a three-peat is premature at best, he has proven time and again not to count him out till the final buzzer sounds. Every now and again, however, Wade’s sheer talent came through and he was able to put the Heat on his broad shoulders and carry them to wins.
