I liked that Dwyane Wade yelled at LeBron and basically scolded him during the game after a couple of bad possessions. It really shows the leadership of Wade and it shows that Wade isn't afraid of LeBron or the moment.
It really reminded me of Derek Fisher. Derek Fisher gets on Kobe whenever he messes up too much and isn't afraid at how big Kobe is as a person or a basketball player. If Wade continues to lead like this, it won't be long before LeBron has that breakthrough game.
Also, this is a learning process for LeBron. Wade let LeBron have some of the glory leading up to the Finals, but Wade is showing why he's a top 3 maybe top 2 player in the league. He's teaching LeBron what you're supposed to do when you're in the Finals. It won't be long until they're back in the Finals and it's LeBron doing all the dirty work, hell, it may even be later this series.
Right now D-Wade is the MVP. LeBron has been the best player for them through the playoffs but Wade has really stepped it up for them.
I was at the game last night..And we heard Wade yelling at Bosh, he told him that he shouldnt be letting that Skinny &$#%#&@! (Chandler) Man Handle him on the Boards...
But getting on a teammate in order while trying to get him to play better is a part of the game...Becuz sometimes even the 12th man can see things the superstar cant....
That's funny, Wade comes off as so calm and polite in interviews you forget he'll get in people's faces. Did anyone else find it a bit annoying/irritating that they showed Lebron giving pre-game speeches to the team? Some of the stuff he said sounded pretty daft too, and it lacked a clear message. Simple is always better in those situations; ala Kobe in the Finals last year "'Til you can't breathe. Go. Hard."
I know I'm nitpicking, but the media is trying so hard to present Lebron as the leader of this team when Wade has been far more effective against Boston and the Mavs, and of course, has been here longer.
"even the 12th man can see things the superstar cant...."
Exactly what I was thinking, RUDEBOY
And I agree with you omphalos. LeBron puts up all the numbers and gets more wins for the team but Wade is by far, the leader of this team.
Used to jaw jap at eachother all the time. It creates championships, and championship teams. I love it. The Heat have come a long way.

I guess "if your not exhausted by the time this game is over, you didn't play hard enough" wasn't good enough for you. Lol and smh.
Right, except he said that last game and it didn't quite pay off, so I'm not sure why he repeated the exact same thing.
well, it worked the second time. At the end of the game the pregame speech don't score the points you gotta go out there and perform.
