College

Wade played college basketball for Marquette University in Milwaukee. In Wade's freshman year at Marquette he did not play because of academic problems.[9] When Wade became eligible his sophomore year (2001–2002) he led the Golden Eagles in scoring with 17.8 ppg, and also contributed averages of 6.6 rebounds per game and 3.4 assists per game.[10] Marquette finished with a 26–7 record,[6] the school's best record since the 1993–94 season.[6] In 2002–03, Wade led Marquette in scoring again with 21.5 ppg,[10] and Marquette won the school's first and only Conference USA championship with a 27–6 record. Wade then led the Golden Eagles to the Final Four, the school's first appearance in the Final Four since winning the 1977 national championship.

One of Wade's more memorable collegiate moments came in the 2003 Midwest Regional Final in the NCAA Tournament in Minneapolis. Against heavily favored, top-ranked and top-seeded Kentucky Wildcats, Wade recorded a triple-double with 29 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists.[11] His triple double was just the third ever in NCAA Tournament history.[11] Wade's accomplishment helped lead Marquette over the Wildcats 83–69 and into the Final Four. Marquette finished the season ranked #6 in the AP poll, the school's highest ranking since the 1976–77 season. Wade's strong play in the tournament caused his draft stock to increase significantly.[12] As a result, he elected to enter the 2003 NBA draft and forgo his senior year at Marquette.

NBA career

2003-04

Selected 5th overall in the 2003 NBA Draft by the Miami Heat, Wade quickly emerged as a solid player on a relatively young Miami Heat team and averaged 16.2 points on 46.5% shooting to go along with averages of 4.0 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game in his rookie season.[10] After a slow 5–15 start,[14] the Heat would gradually improve to finish 42–40 and make the playoffs.[15] He further distinguished himself with outstanding performances in the playoffs,[11] particularly against the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Semi-finals. In the end, however, Wade's successful rookie season was somewhat overshadowed by the hype surrounding fellow rookies Carmelo Anthony and, in particular, LeBron James. Wade did earn unanimous selection to the NBA 2004 All-Rookie team,[11] and also finished third in rookie of the year voting (behind James and Anthony).[11] He also ranked in the top five among rookies in several major statistical categories, including second in field goal percentage, second in steals, third in scoring, fourth in assists, and fourth in minutes played.[11] In the playoffs Wade hit a game winning shot in Game 1 of the Heat's first round series against the New Orleans Hornets. The Heat won the series 4 games to 3 and advanced to the second round to face the top-seeded Indiana Pacers, whom they lost to in six games. He became the fourth rookie since the shot clock era began to lead his team in scoring and assist average in the postseason.[11] The 2003 NBA Draft logo The 2003 NBA Draft was held on June 26, 2003 at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. ...

The Heat lost the series 4–3 after giving up a 3–2 lead,[18] and a lead in the final 3 minutes of Game 7.

2006 NBA Finals

In his first trip to the NBA Finals, in which the Miami Heat faced off against the Dallas Mavericks, Wade had some especially memorable moments. His performance in games three, four, and five, in which he scored 42, 36, and 43 points,[22][23] respectively, helped bring the Heat back from a 0–2 deficit to lead the series at 3 games to 2. Wade's Game 3 performance was especially memorable; Wade finished with 42 points (tying his career playoff high) and 13 rebounds (career high).[24] 15 of his 42 points came in the 4th quarter, in which the Heat erased a 13 point deficit over the final 6:34 with a 22–7 run which included a go-ahead jumper by NBA veteran Gary Payton that sealed the win.[25] The Heat went on to win Game 6, taking the series 4–2, and Wade was presented with the Finals MVP trophy.

2006-07

In the 2006–07 season, Wade missed a total of 31 games due to injury. He was elected to his third straight All-Star Game and received All-NBA honors. He became the first guard to earn All-NBA honors after missing at least 31 games in a season since Pete Maravich of the New Orleans Jazz earned Second Team honors during the 1977–78 season.[11] Despite Wade's play, the Heat struggled early in the season with injuries and were 20–25 on February 1, 2007.[27] But with Shaquille O'Neal healthy and Pat Riley returning to the bench after undergoing hip and knee surgeries,[28] the Heat seemed poised to surge into the second half of the season.[29] However, during a game against the Houston Rockets on February 21, 2007, while attempting to steal the ball from Shane Battier, Wade dislocated his left shoulder and was assisted off the court in a wheelchair.[30] After the injury he was left with the decision to either rehabilitate the shoulder or undergo season-ending surgery.[31] Wade later announced that he would put off the surgery and rehabilitate his shoulder with the intention of rejoining the team in time for the playoffs.[32] After missing 23 games to recover from the injury, Wade returned to the active roster in a game against the Charlotte Bobcats. Sporting a black sleeve to help protect his dislocated left shoulder, Wade played 27 minutes and recorded 12 points and 8 assists, in a 111–103 overtime loss.[33] For the season, Wade averaged 27.4 points, 7.5 assists, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.1 steals per game.[34] The 2006-07 NBA season was the 61st season of the National Basketball Association. ...

Player profile

Wade plays the shooting guard position, but is also capable of playing point guard. On offense, he has established himself as one of the quickest and most difficult players to guard in the NBA.[46] Wade is able to get to the free throw line seemingly at will; he ranked first in free-throw attempts per 48 minutes in 2004–05 and again in the 2006–07 season. He has proven himself an unselfish player, averaging 6.4 assists per game throughout his career.[10] After winning the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award in 2006, Wade developed a reputation as one of the premier clutch players in the NBA.[47] David Thorpe, an athletic trainer who runs a training center for NBA players in the offseason, also cites Wade's developing post up game as one of his strengths.[48] "Watching Wade operate on the left block is literally like watching old footage of MJ (Michael Jordan)," comments Thorpe.[48] Thorpe goes on to say that Wade's best moves from the post are his turnaround jump shot,[48] double pivot,[48] and what Thorpe terms as a "freeze fake",[49] a pump fake Wade uses to get his opponent to jump, so that he can then drive around him to the basket.[49] The main weakness cited in Wade's ability is his lack of three-point range; he has averaged .251 on three-point field goal attempts for his career.[10] He is best known for his ability to convert difficult lay-ups, even after hard mid-air collisions with larger defenders.[46] As crowd pleasing as his high-flying style of basketball may be, some have expressed concerns over the dangers of playing in this manner,[46] as Wade has already hurt his knees and wrists after mid-air collisions with larger players.

Newsvine - Dwyane Wade Returns to Action for Heat (442 words)
MIAMI — Dwyane Wade is back on the floor with the Miami Heat, just in time for the defending NBA champions to begin gearing up for the playoffs.
Wade was not available for comment before the game, and Heat coach Pat Riley said in his pregame availability that Wade would be a "game-time" decision.
A week ago, Wade said that he hoped to play in "a game or two" before the playoffs open on the weekend of April 21, but later suggested that he would like to play in more games — provided his shoulder responded well to practices and contact.
