Interesting take from Rosen.
Fox Sports: There are several qualities that his prospective new team would require to bring out the best in Wade: Since he’s basically a slasher with a mediocre jumper, the team must be loaded with dead-on perimeter shooters. To give him the space he needs, a big man who can post up and also nail mid-range jumpers would likewise be essential.
An excellent point guard would assume some of the ball-handling responsibilities that Wade was forced to assume in Miami and allow him to move more freely in an open court (i.e. to run ahead of the ball). Plus, the new team has to be a serious contender for a championship.
Assuming that LeBron stays put, the Cavs would not be the best option for Wade, if only because LBJ is so used to dominating the ball. The Spurs shouldn’t be under consideration since their outside shooting is a continuing problem. In Orlando, Dwight Howard spends all of his time double-parked in the paint.
Denver would fill the bill. But the best fit would be the Lakers because of Kobe’s ability to knock down important jumpers, the versatility of Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom and the power of Ron Artest. All that the Lakers lack in this equation is the right kind of point guard. However, Derek Fisher makes few mistakes and, besides, by next season Jordan Farmar should be just about ready to take over most of Fisher’s minutes.
Also, Wade’s signing with the Lakers would most likely induce Phil Jackson to accept an inevitable pay cut and return to L.A. for at least another season or two.
