In the Miami Heat's turbulent season, countless people have debated who is the team's closer, LeBron James or Dwyane Wade?

Miami has experimented with both superstars in late-game situations, and both of them have struggled at times. LeBron assumed the role in the beginning of the year with minimal success.
