Miami Heat: 8 Ways Dwyane Wade Can Silence His Critics

Dwyane Wade is one of the best basketball players in the world, but he has been under constant scrutiny since the 2012 NBA playoffs began. 

Wade has certainly lived up to the expectations that come with being the fifth player taken in the NBA draft. 

Over the span of his nine-year career, Wade has averaged 25.2 points, 6.2 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game. He has been the face of the Miami Heat since they selected him, and he led them to the 2006 NBA championship alongside Shaquille O'Neal

However, there are still a few areas in Wade's game that could be improved as he continues his career. 

He is not a good three-point shooter by any definition, as he has connected on just 29.1 percent of the threes he has attempted throughout his career.

His free-throw shooting, although decent at 77 percent, should also be better, since Wade is one of the best scorers in the world. 

Wade has a chance to silence his critics before he retires, and here are a few ways that he can do so.
