D-Wade: Not a Max Guy?

Does everyone belief D-Wade is a max guy? Ok.

I'm not saying Dwayne Wade is not a great talent but for a man who will be 29 by the end of next season and always a tough player, I would have a hard time looking to pay Wade a max contract. I would do a 5 year-55 mil deal but a monster max deal (Between 16-18 mil a season) is something I would pass on.

What do you think? I know I'm going to get a couple negatives but I wanna say it.

I am fine with paying Wade

I am fine with paying Wade max money. It's more so how many years Wade wants. If he asks for 5 or 6 years, the investment is not worth it, but if he is willing to accept 4 years, then I would be willing to sign him in an instant.

He's a prime example of a

He's a prime example of a player coming out of college at the age of 23 and the difference of a player coming out at the age of 19 or 20.. he's already looking to be old when you talk about a contract and max years.. rather than LeBron and Melo who seem to be perfect for another max contract.

like you said, hes deserves

like you said, hes deserves the money, maybe not the years. but i really dont think itll be the worst thing ive seen if he gets max money with max years, hes in the top 5 in league, hes earned the money/years

I don't think Wade getting 4

I don't think Wade getting 4 years with max money is all that terrible. 5 years might be pushing it, but if the end result is leading a franchise to a Championship, who is going to complain.

I wouldn't sign him to a deal because I don't think he's worth it, he plays the 2 and is a ball-dominant, taking the ball out of the PG's hand and he stunts development of his players(Beasley), because he doesn't get them involved.

I would not give him a max, and with his age and tough style of play, he'll eventually break down.

Knicksboy, I feel you, and I

Knicksboy, I feel you, and I don't think Wade is worth the amount of years to be getting 20 mil at 34, 35. He is worth at 33 if it means a championship when he was 30, 31.

Wade

Don't worry Knicks fans, you'll never get the chance to overpay Wade, Lebron, or probably even Bosh. Enjoy Boozer and Joe Johnson.

I'm a little crossed on

I'm a little crossed on this. without wade the heat won 15 games and when he returned they got back into the playoffs. But at the same time i was thinking this the other night against boston because even though he put up numbers they were empty numbers. His success individually doesn't lead to a win where as when lebron, kobe, melo, durant do good they win.

As for if he deserves a max contract i going to say no. He is getting old and is going to get hurt again, he drives to much not to. However if a team with a bonifide superstar has an opportunity to sign him i would jump at it. Can't imagine who to defend wade and lebron at the same time.

Wade

You are all nuts. He is dominant. He is a champion. He is leading the WORST supporting cast in all of basketball IMO to the playoffs every year if he isn't hurt.

Tell me how this team is better than the nets

pg. Carlos "Effin" Arroyo Effin is my unofficial nickname for him because thats all I ever say about him
sg Quinton Richardson The Clips, T Wolves, and Grizzlies did not want him. Enough said.
sf Beasley dont even get me started
pf Haslem Awesome role player, but as a bench player
C Jermaine O Neal I have seen amputees with more agility at this point, he is beyond done.

Off the bench we bring in

Mario Chalmers, who is an awful combo guard, no 2 ways around it.
Joel Anthony, barely played at UNLV
Dorrel Wright, who was going to figure it out next year,,,,,for each of the past 4 years
Cant even Remember his first name Diawara

And this is a team that he led to the 5th seed in the admittedly weak East. He is still unstoppable off dribble, a strong defender, and an underrated mid range shooter. His injuries will catch up to him by the end of that contract perhaps, but he has other attributes that lead me to believe he can stay elite. 2 guards have a decent shelf life.

The Heat will and should pay Wade max money till he either retires or dies, and theres no other way around it. He is a one man playoff team, like Lebron and Kobe, and a championship calibur building block once they can lock him up. Once we resign Dwayne, and Get J O's max salary off the books and into Amares bank account, we will be rolling.

anyone who says DWade is not a max guy for the next 5 years needs to go watch another sport.

for anyone

I'm glad this discussion is going on because while other teams are pondering this the Bulls are going to pay him whatever the hell he asks for......I used to think that Wade to the Toros was kind of a pipe dream but now its looking more and more like it could become a reality.....and the faster they both get bounced the more likely it is to happen....

oh this backcourt is going to rule all creation....

Wade

It probably depends on which team Wade goes because maybe Wade can do a trick, kind of like what Jason Kidd did: He could play the point, which he definitely can do, and defend the other teams shooting guard for example.
That would mean, he wouldn't have to sacrifice his body taking on the whole scoring load and he also wouldn't have to guard the ultra-quick point guards a lá Westbrook, Collisson, Rose.
But if that should happen he would have to develop an accurate outside shot (cf. Kidd).

How could Wade work in

How could Wade work in Chicago? Wade is a ball dominant player, but so is Rose. I think Wade would ruin the chemistry Rose is starting to make. With them two players like Noah and Deng would be standing around watching them. Players like Wade IMO need to be the stars on there teams with a good supporting cast to win.

Wouldn't be surprised if he comes to the Lakers

I can see the Heat doing a sign and trade with a team if Wade is serious about leaving. Here is a scenario that could happen, the Lakers trade Bynum or Gasol, take your pick Shannon Brown and a scrub with an expiring contract that is expiring(Vujacic 5 mill expiring at the end of next year).

Lakers starting lineup
Wade
Kobe
Artest
Odom
Bynum or Gasol

Its better than the Heat not getting anything back in return.

The same scenario goes for Bosh and Chrs Paul.

That starting lineup would

That starting lineup would not work, first off there is no PG, second of their is to many good players. The Lakers already have enough good players, with Wade there wouldn't be enough shots to go around.

Delfam

The triangle doesn't require a true point guard, Odom is a point foward and Kobe is the best playmaker in the triangle. Take that sign and trade scenario and use it for Bosh, Paul and Wade.

Wade will look like a max

Wade will look like a max player to even the biggest skeptics when Miami overhauls its entire roster this summer.

no dgrizzly.. you gotta

no dgrizzly.. you gotta consider wade's age... he'll definately get a max contract... but for how many years is the question... especially with his style of play and his injury history..

do you think ray allen deserved 20 mil this year?

esperanza- but two things,

esperanza- but two things, one ray was never better then wade. And even when wades athleticism takes a decline, he is still capable of setting up teammates. ON top of that, even if his last year or two he declines the first 3-4 years will make up for it. He will only be 33 after another 5 year deal ends.

"He plays the two and is ball-dominant, taking the ball out of the PG's hand and he stunts development of his players(Beasley), because he doesn't get them involved."

I can agree with that to an extent, but he's still a max deal player. Anything less than a max deal would be a disrespect to him considering he's a top five player in the NBA and has been the last few years. Miami just needs to surround him with players he can win with, which should happen this summer.

If Wade is not a max

If Wade is not a max contract guy then there are maybe 2-3 in the league. I am willing to pay the guy 20 mill when he is 34-35 if it means that I get him for the 5 years before that. The guy is undoubtedly a top 5 player in the league and will be barring injury for the next 3-4 years at the least. If I win 1 championship with him then I am willing to overpay him as he is getting older.

It is pretty unbelievable to me that this is even a debate really. The guy's team is absolutely horrendous, I agree with whoever said that they are worse than the Nets. I would much rather have the Nets supporting cast. The only players that I remotely like on the Heat roster are Beasley (for some reason I still believe in him), Haslem (decent enough big man, if he is starting for you then you are in trouble though) and Arroyo (always had a soft spot for the former Piston, solid BACKUP pg). I truly would not want any other player on that team.
