The Sixth Sense: Why Dwyane Wade Is Special!!!

Mark Twain once said,  it’s not the size of the dog in the fight” that  matters but rather ” the size of the fight in the dog.”

At 6’4″ (perhaps really 6’3″), it would have been difficult to label Dwyane Wade  as a future NBA super star. Many felt he would slide into the early teens of the 2003 Draft. He didn’t have a great jump shot. He wasn’t tall enough to be a shooting guard.

Fast forward seven years and Wade is one of the premier players in the league. Arguably the best and certainly in the top 3 along with LeBron James and Kobe Bryant.

During his career Wade has lifted the Miami Heat franchise to unprecedented success. He has made six All Star appearances, led the team to two Eastern Conference Finals and a NBA championship in 2006. Many thought that was Wade’s ascension to super star status but that had actually begun to occur two years earlier.

    Great article! I completely agree. Wade has that heart and determination that makes him what he is. Only people that have watched him closely in his career understand that.

    Nice piece, Benny. However, as I’ve said numerous times, I don’t think “who will take the crunchtime shot?” will ever be an issue with this “team”.

    You know my feelings about Wade, but I just don’t see him, LeBron, Bosh, or any of the Heat players even having these thoughts in their head during a game. Miami is going to give new meaning to that word above, “TEAM”, and the Heat will be better for it.

    Dwyane Wade is absolutely special, but the specialness of this Miami Heat team will make everyone forget completely why there have even been any discussions about who takes the big time shot.

    Keep up the great work, bro…;-)
