Really? So you, nor anyone else, thinks Wade is redundant on that team and that's why oftentimes their offense looked stagnant/clunky?? Am I the only one that's aware that they had an unbelievable record in games that Wade missed??
Hell, forget replacing Wade with a lesser talented but more complementary piece...you could probably say there's a chance Miami would have won it all this year even with Wade simply not on the team...would that notion be THAT ridiculous? A less polished Cleveland LBJ consistently went deep in the playoffs...now you got a better LBJ in 2012 along with Bosh (who, though overrated, is still waaaaay better than any Cavalier teammate LBJ ever had)...that team could have potentially won it all sans Wade.
And, again, I'm not taking anything away from Wade's raw talent, just that his talent is not very complementary to a team built around James...why no one thinks it could be worth it to have someone else with less talent but whose talent is more complementary is beyond any rational thought. Yes, if I were starting a team from scratch, he'd be one of the first players I'd choose, please understand what I'm saying...
