Wade: The Dark Horse

Filed under: Uncategorized — sturner11 @ 9:38 pm

All I hear when watching ESPN is Lebron this and Kobe that.

The entire season, Lebron and Kobe have always been #1 and #2 for the MVP race and I can understand why; Lebron is averaging 28.1 points per game and 28.0 for Kobe.

They are two of the best leaders and figures in the NBA and in the world.

Even if you don’t watch basketball, you still know their names. But it was kind of expected from these two players to have great seasons, they are two of the best in the league.

Unfortunately, this isn’t their year.

Dwyane Wade is having one of the best seasons of his career.

Click here to check out the regular season stats: www.nba.com/statistics.

When it comes to numbers, Flash is definitely dominating the MVP race.

But of course, MVP doesn’t always go by the numbers. Many people are saying, “It’s not only the numbers that count, but how you’re team compares to others in the league.”


Lebron is playing with the same core of guys from last year, as are the Lakers.

 As for the Heat, only two of the five starters from last year are on the team and seven out of 15 players this year were on last year’s team. The Heat are one of the youngest teams this season and have a rookie head coach who is the youngest in the league.

At this point, no one can stop Dwyane Wade. He has single handedly lead the Miami Heat to a fantastic season is dominating the league in points. When it comes to stats, Flash is #1; when it comes to team leadership and performance on a nightly basis, no one can take control like D-Wade can.

For all the people that think LJ or Kobe are the MVP’s, I’m sorry but you’re wrong. You need take a second look at the different qualities for an MVP and look over your numbers. I’m sorry Lebron and Kobe, you are both having great seasons, but it’s just not enough.

Keep it up D-Wade.



  1. Poor playoff performances will hurt the young mans chances at the MVP trophy. It hurts me to say it, but Wade and the Heat are done for.

  2. I don’t think, however, that he can be judged by one bad loss. It is true that if it continues to happen then his chances will be hurt and for good reason.
