Wade has been a turnover machine since putting on the USA jersey. LeBron is more valuable than Wade.
Lebron has more turnover than Wade, mr. Expert.:)
He also handles the ball 3 times as much as Wade. Wade has barely been the playmaker in this tournament.
Wade when driving to the hoop is a waiting TO to happen in this tounament and against these zone Ds.
you guys should be watching every game before you say anything about them. wade has easily been the better player in this tournament. and most of his turnovers come when usa is already up by 50 anyway and the U.S. is throwing alley oops to each other and more flashy passes. wade has not been the only one either. Lebron has almost been a non factor in this tournament and wade had been a difference maker throughout. Carmelo clearly outshined Lebron throughout the tourney. however wade and carmelo can play together and play together well.
if you have to choose between 2 players to go it would be between lebron and melo and no one after carmelos performance would keep lebron over wade on this team.
that poll is clearly irrelevant because its people choosing wade to go since he is less popular not because of his play
You are sounding like the most bias person in here. The majority of Wade's point have come in the open court. What happened when we didn't have many open court oppurtunites against a decent team. His production went down. Well guess what happens in the finals rounds in the Olympics. Anybody could have been plugged into Wade's spot to get to the Semi's but getting there is not enough we need to win. I choose James because he is more likely to hit the jumpshot and has a bit more versatility on the court. How can you say its between Melo and Bron when Melo has clearly been the best player on the team by far. That right there lets me know that your biasness for Wade is overshadowing your judgement. Maybe you should look at the poll results and think to yourself maybe just maybe I am the one being bias.
im the only one here not biased. if lebron was was playing alongside shaq that poll would be completely the other way. wade has surpassed lebron in just about every category. if you dont believe me take a look at the stats. he has been a difference maker on the floor. and of course melo has been the best player i said that b4 the only reason i said it would have to be between him and bron is because they play the same position. wade is a guard why would he have to compete with a spot against lebron? but if that was the case wade has less minutes, less turnovers, and has only missed a handful of shots more than lebron. the fg% are almost equal. and your gonna tell me that you would take bron over wade?! in the last game (greece) shane battier was more effective than lebron. lebron drove a couple times, got fouled and missed free throws. however once you saw wade come in the game the tempo switched and US made a run again. and i cant talk much about the game today against argentina because i missed this one but as i have recapped about that game once again it was wade. anyone that would not be biased and clearly wanted the better player in this tournament would easily choose wade plain and simple.
compare the stats between lebron and melo and tell me again lebron y??
while your at it at the top of the page tell me who the only two high scoreres in these games were besides senegal
I'm not a stat boy. I don't pull stats out of everywhere to try and prove my point. Watching the games and the impact of the players I vote Wade off. Why because he turned over the ball which led to many points for the opposition and he can't hit a jumpshot. I don't care that he averaged the most points on the team over the course of the tournament. Anyone of them could but when it came down to getting to that final game against probably the most decent team we faced what happened. Him and Bron dissappeared. I am not saying Bron is better than Wade but with Bron's cout vision and his ability to hit the occasional jumpshot I take him over Wade. Stats from the whole tournament mean nothing to me because they wasn't there in the game we needed them so you can take that argument somewhere else.
if your not a stats guy then i dont know what you are trying to get rid of wade for. wade had nothing but impact while he was on the floor. lebron seemed as just another body there. wade would come off the bench and change the tempo of every game. while lebron was on the floor it was the carmelo show. he was the only one on the offensive end really doing anything until wade would come in. yes lebron has good court vision but most of the tournament he has been rackin up the to's. and you said wade dissapered in that game??? you must be talkingabout another one because against greece as soon as he came in he brought the u.s lead down to 5 which was i believe 12. meanwhile lebron was busy doing nothing. so your argurment again that wade should go is why?? o thats right because he's on the heat. gotchu
What does that have to do with anything being discussed here. Because this is a Laker board does that automatically mean we hate Wade. GTFOH Both are awesome NBA players and I respect both of there games but this is International play give me Redd or Allen and LO instead of these two. Neither Wade or Bron is really needed on this team. But if I had to pick one I would pick Bron because of his skill set as I have stated everytime I posted. Bron can do everything Wade can I can't say the same vice versa. Which is why I pick Bron. Is that clear enough for you.
that is where you are wrong my texas laker friend. either lebron or melo are not needed on this team. and no one would take off melo from this team. wade at the 1 or 2 with melo at the three has been working great this whole tournament. even though wade comes off the bench they have played together many times. however lebron at the 4 and carmelo at the 3 is not near as effective as wade and melo. sounds confusing but stay with me. bottom line is lebron and melo naturally play the same position. therefore 1 of them has to go. and it wont be melo.
