Wade would have been ranked higher on this list in the past, but a combination of injuries and the presence of LeBron James have taken a hit on his production.
One of the most gifted all-around athletes in the league, as well as one of the top scorers, Wade would be the go-to guy on pretty much any other team. His NBA championship also shows that he is a winner who does not back down from the challenge (the Heat were down 3-1 in the finals against the Mavericks in 2006 before coming back to win).
Wade can score from the post and mid-range equally well and is one of the best finishers in the game. One of the only knocks on his game is his lack of an outside jump shot, but he makes due without taking many threes.
Among guards, Wade is also known as one of the best shot-blockers.
LEGEND COMPARISON: Scottie Pippen
Wade has consistently put up higher scoring numbers than Pippen throughout his career, but that is largely due to the fact that Pippen was typically playing with Michael Jordan. In the end Wade's scoring ability is very similar to what Pippen's was in his prime. Pippen also had a strong post game, considering his size. Like wade, he was never considered to be an exceptional shooter.
Pippen played strong defense, crashed the boards and created for his teammates. These are all things that Wade has a habit of doing as well.
