Dwyane Wade was named a recipient of a 2011 Fatherhood Award™ this week, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press wrote a great feature about Wade and his sons, and the latest HEATcast ended with the bloggers discussing some of their favorite Heat memories with their fathers and children this season.
LeBron James said when the Miami Heat recruited him last summer, one of the most important things the organization emphasized was family.
Family and fatherhood resulted in some big moments for the Heat this season. Let’s review seven of those moments for Father’s Day using Heat fans' memories and the Win Score and Estimated Wins Produced models.
This article will use Win Score and Estimated Wins Produced, statistical models created by Professor David Berri from the Wages of Wins Journal, to measure how much a player's box score statistics contributed to their team's efficiency differential and wins. An average player produces an estimated 0.100 wins per 48 minutes (Est.WP48), a star player produces +0.200 Est.WP48 and a superstar produces +0.300 Est.WP48.
