The show's other household name, Bart used to be the star of the sitcom in its earlier years before Homer came along and stole the show with his ridiculous shenanigans.
At any given time, though, Bart is still easily capable of handling an entire episode by himself. In fact, Homer's hijinks often benefit from Bart's presence, and in the end Homer would be nowhere without Bart no matter how much more of the spotlight he currently gets.
Bart can be just as hare-brained and misguided as his dad is—in many respects, he's just a younger version of Homer—and the two are constantly teaming up for some inane scheme in the hopes of cheap success.
Dwyane Wade is the other half of Miami's Big Two, although he's the most established, and spent his first few years as the central star of the team. That is, until a certain Akronite came to town.
Now, Wade plays second fiddle in terms of who bathes in the spotlight, and yet he remains the foundation of the team, capable of single-handedly dragging them out of a hole. LeBron's on-court antics—and, I would wager, his self-confidence—often benefit from Wade's presence.
On the court, Wade is just as explosive and talented as LeBron—in many ways, he's just a shorter version of LeBron—and the two are constantly teaming up on the break. They also recently combined their efforts in the hopes achieving what many call cheap success.
