Dwyane Wade: Me & Chris Need More Opportunities To Succeed

Postby Kobe8Fan on Sat Jun 01, 2013 11:50 pm

Dwyane Wade wasn't quite as forthcoming when it came to blame.
Ira Winderman

"We've got to do a better job, all of us, helping get each other involved in the game," he said moments before Bosh spoke in a funereal Miami Heat locker room. "We've got to do a better job of making sure me and Chris can have opportunities to succeed."

Wade, after shooting 3 of 11 for 10 points, did look elsewhere, suggesting he has been marginalized in the Heat's offense, on a night when defense and rebounding were equally decisive factors.

"We've got to try to figure it out in this locker room," he said, "and not leave it to an individual to self-will it."

Looks like D-Wade is making excuses. He's not manning up and take responsibility for his own play.

haha..... I swear I will love watching ESPN everyday if the Heat lose game 7....... The "reasons" are going to be amazing.

No you and Bosh should be good enough to get yours no matter what .....

It's another story for the role players though ... Heat has had zero continuity on its offensive sets run from game to game

Heat havent lost. Everyone is talking like they lost the series. If they win Game 7, they are in their 3rd finals in 3 years. There have been 5 teams in NBA history that have gone to the finals 3 times in a row. Celtics, Lakers, Pistons, Knicks and Bulls. Thats it. In 60 plus years.

Yup, and they will probably win game 7... I just don't see the Pacers being able to pull it out, nor Wade and Bosh coming up that short again.

Lebron just takes his teammates out of rhythm.....

At least that's what happens with Kobe right?

In other news, Wade is in favor of adding 2 more refs to each game. Each equipped with 2 whistles. And each FT should count for 3 points.

Two things (and I'm surprised no one has said this already)

Lebron in the game 5 post game interviews said that (paraphrased):

He had to go back to his Cleveland days when it came to dominating/scoring in that game 5.

Which essentially calls out his teammates for not performing up to their all-star caliber statuses (Bosh and Wade).

And then, Wade says this? Bosh has been the one guy who had the most chemistry problems on that team...and now Wade has lumped them together. I wonder who this is a dig at...Spolestra or Bron?

well you are the one to answer that question since you are the one that ays obe doesn't play the right way to get his teammates involved unlike Lebron. So is Doc Brown's comment rediculous or not?

I don't think anyone but the Pacers believe that the Heat will lose game 7. However, the Heat are the overwhelming favorites and are being pushed by a team with, until now, no real star while Miami has the ONE HUGE MEGA star. That, in my opinion, is why everyone is talking like it has been a loss.

THe Heat could very well win game 7 and then stomp a mudhole into the Spurs for the B2B rings. Then all this would be forgotten and the media will start asking questions of "How did the Heat survive such a hard road to the championship"

This is what I was thinking too.

And while I won't pretend this is anywhere as concrete as actual words from the players Wade's body language on the court has been absolutely terrible. Part of his lack of success in the last couple of games has been due to his lack of real, true effort. He's not pushing it the same way he has in the past.

I think he's finally getting sick of the second fiddle. Or maybe he always has been upset about it and it's finally manifesting itself.

Why should I have to answer that question? You should know the answer! Lebron and Kobe are the MVPs of their teams. They are both superstars I'd consider to be in the same tier of player. Thus, they are held to the same standards!

He needs to do more. He's the star. He's their leader. He has to do more, it starts with him. Rather than the excuse being "well, can't get assists if the teammates don't make baskets" he needs to find a way to GENERATE more assists while shouldering the scoring load. He can start by creating BETTER opportunities for his teammates to get them going. One of his bigs is taking way too many long range jumpers so get him some better, high percentage looks. His other big name teammate is clearly not 100% but even at less than 100% he should still be able to contribute more efficiently than he has been and is still better than most players at his position. The team as a whole goes as he goes, and collectively, they aren't playing to their maximum potential as a group. If they were playing the best that they could given the circumstances but were just facing a better opponent then that would be a different story but IMO, they should be playing much better and that starts with him. Does any of this sound familiar at all? (It should).

Exactly who did you think I was talking about there ... Lebron, Kobe, or too close to call?

I think it's crazy that so many Laker fans are holding Lebron to a higher standard than Kobe. Kobe is older but he is still equally elite and until he shows otherwise, he should be put in the exact same class as Lebron, IMO.

If you compare what Miami is doing right now compared to when we played them earlier in the season or in last years run they look completely different.

They had a crispness and a balance to their offensive game that has been missing for a month now. It does look like those Cleveland teams where it was LeBron or nothing. Wade's is obviously limited by injury and Bosh is not doing much because he's being used to pull Hibbert away from the bucket.

Bosh is the one for me that is the most important to this teams success. The last two years in the playoffs he had huge games and was arguably their best player in a couple of series. His lack of involvement to me seems to be their issue.

I hope LeBron hears about these comments from his teammates, and pouts his way to a loss.

This is a really bad time for Miami to be imploding.... and I love it. I'm not holding out much hope for them to lose Game 7, but that's what I'll be cheering for.

Pacers will take game 7. They should have taken game 1 but its ok they will take game 7. Lebron can go hero mod all he wants but if Pacers plays through their bigs then its all over.

go Pacers! Go George! :jam2:

^ Yeah I'm kind of thinking that as well. Not sure if Pacers will win, but I do think the key at the point is let Lebron take all the shots and keep the others from contributing because LBJ will get his regardless. Once you have a Bosh or Chalmers or Wade or whoever with the high teens in points, they're a tough team to beat.

The Pacers will have to play a perfect game IMO to win. They have too many mentally weak players on that team. Stevenson makes JR Smith look like a even keeled guy.

Their inexperienced guys have played like crap on the road... that will have to change big time in Miami.

Wade's game has really regressed to the point where he's not even that good of a role player. This is what happens when you don't work on your mid range game and then lose your athleticism.
