Many fans out there have undoubtedly deemed LeBron James the best player in the game today, but ironically he isn’t the one his teammates should look to in their time of need. This may change down the road, but as of now, if the Heat want to win the championship this year, Dwyane Wade must be their leader.
Wade’s impressive career speaks for itself, yet it has been overshadowed by the self-proclaimed King's chase for a ring since 2003. Nevertheless, Wade was unselfish enough to have both James and Chris Bosh join him in Miami, the city he has made his own. Does this mean he doesn’t want to be the man anymore in Dade County? Not at all. It means he wants some help.
The bottom line is this: It's time to stop this talk of “LeBron James and the Miami Heat.” Trying to decide who is the closer or the leader should be left up to the media. As far as inside the Heat organization, it has to be known that Dwyane Wade is leading the team into battle if the Heat want to come out victorious.
