Ethan Sherwood Strauss@SherwoodStraussNBA Lead WriterDecember 5, 2012

Pau Gasol and Dwyane Wade have both underwhelmed expectations on teams that play amid high expectations. Their roles are radically different, though both guys are dogged by age. Pau is older at age 32, but Dwyane plays a position more predicated on athleticism.

Both are at something of a crossroads, looking to reclaim talent they once owned completely. But which guy is more important to his team's future chances?
