33 Questions for the Miami Heat's Finals Rematch Against the San Antonio Spurs
7. So, what? Bench Wade?
Oh no. Nothing like that.
8. You just said the Heat looked better with Wade on the bench
9. The hell, man? What are you trying to pull?
Look, all I'm saying is that the stats show the Heat's offense was better with Wade off the floor last year. But...
10. YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! D-WADE IS AN ALL-TIME GREAT. OH AND DID YOU FORGET HIS GAME 4 PERFORMANCE WHEN HE OBLITERATED THE SPURS? WHAT ABOUT GAME 7??? OH, HOW EASILY WE FORGET!
If you let me explain, what I'm trying to say is that last year Wade was not himself. He was injured and slower than we're used to seeing him. However, as we've seen in these playoffs -- particularly against the Pacers -- Wade has been a freight train of devastation. He averaged 19 points against the best defense in the league, and the Heat had him on a very strict regiment during the regular season, resting him for more than 20 games.
And nothing. This is a good thing. The Heat was able to win the title with half a Wade last year. So now, with a perfectly healthy Wade, this is a very, very excellent sign.
13. Oh. OK. Sorry.
