Dwyane Wade has become one of the NBA's greatest all-time shooting guards, but he has never developed a reliable perimeter jumper.

Wade has attempted just 122 three-points over the past two seasons, converting on less than 30 percent of those tries. In a three-season span leading up to the 10-11 season, Wade attempted between 206 and 278 three-pointers.

“The only thing left for me to do is become Mike Miller and shoot a lot of threes,” said Wade when asked of adding to his game. Wade said he won't decide until the season if he will attempt to shoot more three-pointers.

If Wade is to extend his prime, he is widely expected to improve his three-point shooting.

Your legs are already failing you and THEN you decide to become a three point shooter?  Alright...

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

Acknowledge your denial over the condition of your body first.

Isn't that better than attacking the basket constantly?

maybe for his body but not shooting wise.  His jumper is already broken, and now he wants to shoot even FARTHER from the rim? 


once Wade cannot get to the rim whenever he wants to... thats when he starts to become a bench player.. he's getting close to that
