Wade will undoubtedly be the Heat's second leading scorer, which is something he hasn't experienced since his rookie season.
The fact is that Wade is a team player who has no problem sacrificing his scoring numbers. A prime example is this most recent season, where he went from being the league's scoring champion at 30.2 PPG to in 2009 to 26.6 points.
This is not a result of the Heat being a better team this season; it was because Wade wanted to give his teammates more opportunities and relieve some of the scoring load off of his shoulders.
With LeBron on the roster to complement him, Wade will have no problem scoring less as he is throwing up alley-oops to his buddy.
You might think there should be more of a disparity in Wade and James scoring numbers, however, use the Boston Celtics as an example.
When Boston won the NBA title in 2008 after bringing in their own "Big Three," Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kevin Garnett's stats all declined from the previous season.
Since Pierce and Allen are the wing players that compare to James and Wade, I will use their stats as an example. Pierce went from 25 to 19.6 PPG, while Allen's scoring dropped from 26.4 to 17.4 points. As you can see, there was only a two point differential in Pierce and Allen's scoring.
Also, the two Celtics had a six and nine point dip in their scoring, respectively. While this is significantly higher than what I projected Wade and James drop to be, remember a few things: Wade and James are still fully in their primes and are considered more talented players than Pierce and Allen.
Boston's duo was on the tail-end of their primes when they arrived in Boston, so it is safe to say the All-Star duo of The King and Flash will still be putting up big numbers.
Either way, Wade's passing numbers should increase significantly with the addition of James and Bosh. This is a guy who averaged 6.5 assists per game with Michael Beasley and Jermaine O'Neal as the secondary scoring options. With two All-Stars now at his side, Wade will have no problems racking up the dimes.
