    He just doesn't have that quickness or jump he used to.

    Still a top 15 player. Not better than Harden though.

    He was done the day the league announced they would finally start testing for HGH.

    he really does look a step slow. eventually, all those knee operations were going to catch up and father time is in the mix as well.

    Come to think of it, it'll be a decade since he came into the league. He didn't come into the league fresh out of HS either. He was 21 in 2003. Soon, those incredible 03ers will be retired too.

    How time flies by.

    The Flash might be done......but Wade can still play if he learns how the play below the rim and defers to LBJ.

    He better figure it out or LBJ and the Heat are gonna have a hell of a time trying to win again.

    too much injuries. still a good player but for the past 3-4 years, he looks for the whistle more and more rather than just play ball

    I don't think he's done, I mean the man can still produce. But yeah, he clearly isn't the player he once was, and will never be again .... aging is a bitch.

    Didn't he have a knee surgery over the summer? It might take time for him to get back to his normal self again.

    Still top 3 SG with KB and *cough westbrook*

    But will continue to have more and more off nights.

    Btw totally unrelated but Carmelo Anthony is not a super-star

    Maybe done as being a top 10 player but not done as still being damn good. I'll take 18/4/5/1/1 on 47% from my SG.

    We all knew it was a matter of time when his body broke down.

    What are you talking about? He's the Batman of the Heat according to Skip Bayless.

    This isn't the 1st or 2nd time folks thought Wade was slowing down and he bounced back. Time will tell.
