MIAMI — It was title No. 3 for Dwyane Wade, catapulting him into an elite class of winners. This title run, however, has been the most difficult for the perennial All-Star. Wade has suffered through various knee issues and persistent murmurs that his best days are behind him.
So his role on the Heat has been adjusted. When LeBron James arrived in Miami in 2010, he and Wade were equal contributors, but James has slowly assumed the title of primary scoring option while Wade has settled in as his complement.
