would he be a HOFer?

I think so. Olympic Gold medal, MVP title, MVP Finales MVP, final 4 in college. The guy is phenomenal.

Also, with the development of his midrange game, I think we'll see him doing well for a much longer than first expected.

He needs 400 games to qualify for the Hall of Fame and right now he only has 377 (including today's game). Assuming if he is eligible to qualify, I'm sure there's no doubt Dwyane Wade will make it in. Phenomenal player and I'm sure there have been lesser players that have accomplished less and still made it in.

I think if his career ended now due to an injury, I think he would be one.
I mean, it would be a sad thing if he doesn't right? But maybe the NBA doesn't have hearts :hmm:

If it ended now because he just wanted it to, I think there would be a lot of debates about him being inducted to the Hall of Fame.

If he becomes qualified, no doubt he's getting inducted

Wade's jumper is sick!! :yikes:

Dwyane Wade has never been regular season MVP...

Also, you ask: "If DWade's career ended now... would he be a HOFer?"

Yet in your post you say: "Also, with the development of his midrange game, I think we'll see him doing well for a much longer than first expected."

So, which is it 'fool? :blink:

Regular season MVP doesn't mean much to me. Shaquille O'Neal has only won it once, as well as Kobe. Yet we know that each had more than one MVP season. What matters most is playoff success. Wade can say he lead a team to an NBA championship, and won the Finales MVP. Gold Medal in the Olympics with him being one of the main option. I think it's an easy choice.

The second part speculates if he lost his athleticism due to a serious injury....which would be equivalent to his career ending. Look at Grant Hill. I think Wade could still be an effective player with his new found midrange game and his passing ability.

I don't think anyone even expected him to turn out this good. His rookie season was decent but his second year was just.... :o

You could definitely argue him in there.

He's only played at an elite level for a handful of years. He might have a title and Finals MVP, but so does Billups. Is he a HOFer? No. There's no question Wade will be a HOFer if he continues to play like this, but being a HOFer means you had a HOF career, not a handful of good years. Same reason I don't think Nash is a HOFer.

Wade's numbers in the Olympics compared to those of Jordan's in the Olympics. The dude was INSANE.

Wade had always that nice midrange jumper... But unless he play more games, his career would be too short for HoF...

He might make it.

Same reason I don't think Nash is a HOFer.

I'm pretty sure every single MVP winner in NBA history (who has qualified of course) is in the HoF... if not then it's daaamn close, but it very well might be all of em.

Nash won BACK2BACK.

Nash doesn't have a Championship Ring, he doesn't have a Finales MVP, and he doesn't have a gold medal. Wade is head and shoulders above Nash.

Remember what D-Wade did in 2006 Finals. That was one of the best performances in Finals history. He is a great, great player.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

He would be a HOF member, once he qualifies.

Just an amazing player who already has a nice amount of achievements.
