An undersized shooting guard, Wade comes in at 6'4". Even so, he challenges defenders with bad intentions every time he drives the lane.
This is the headache that teams will have to face when the Heat are on the hardwood—the two best slashers in the league, playing together.
With blazing track-speed, Wade is able to gracefully cut through defenders as he makes his way to the basket.
Dwyane has an uncanny ability to penetrate into the paint and contort his body as he puts up near-impossible shots, shots that somehow manage to fall through the net. His body control is truly unrivaled in the NBA.
His game often gets compared to Michael Jordan, and for good reason. There are a lot of similarities in their slashing styles and how they finish in the paint.
Wade attacks the basket with such reckless abandon, that you can hear a collective sigh of relief around Miami after he gets up from one of his wild forays to the hoop. While he's posterized his fair share of players—Anderson Varejao can tell you all about it—he takes a lot of hard contact.
Not only is he one of the most creative finishers in the league, but he has the power to demoralize defenders.
