Wade has always been a good defender, and since being paired with LeBron, the Heat's superstars have become the best tandem of on-ball defenders in the league.
Wade is capable, can guard three positions and has no problems bodying up a small forward or shooting guard who may have a size advantage against him. Wade can also stick with quicker point guards and prevent them from getting to the paint or finding open teammates.
Wade makes his opposition work for everything on the offensive end.
In the second round against the Boston Celtics, Wade chased Ray Allen through screens and helped to shut down the three-point specialist while still dominating on the offensive end.
In the Eastern Conference Finals, Wade guarded Derrick Rose in certain spots and helped the Heat make Rose's series a nightmare, holding him to poor field goal percentages and not allowing him to get to his spots on the floor.
