CHI Shooting Guard: 6’4, 220 lbs; 15th year, Marquette

NBA Role: offensive star • CHI Depth Chart: Hybrid

Dwyane Wade, one of the greatest two guards to ever lace ’em up, is now w/ his hometown team in pursuit of title #4*; even at age 35, Wade has retained some of his takeover ability – doesn’t get to the line as much anymore but has reinvented himself as a post-up scorer, midrange attacker & strategic rim driver (loves doing damage on the left side); Wade’s present-day game is basically just a remixed version of the past 14 seasons – he’ll still avoid contact before a euro lay-in but has avoided absorbing contact & flying into the first row in recent years; automatic turnaround fadeaway – Wade’s able to unleash his go-to shot over almost any defender; injury prone but has mastered the art of picking his spots and contributing at a high level when needed most; defense has taken a huge step back but when healthy, Wade remains a very capable scorer & leader on a game-to-game basis – the eldest of the 3 Alphas, Wade’s transitioning from icon to co-star

*Or, or…just to hoop w/ the team he grew up rooting for – it’s one of the two

Signature Move: turnaround fader
