08:08 AM ET 08.10 | Dwyane Wade is now on the record as having said he's going to play basketball this season, with the clear implication that could be overseas. Heat fans should hope it is all smoke, especially in Wade's case. Wade approaches his ninth season and 30th birthday. He has missed 107 NBA games because of injuries. Shoulder, knee, ribs, hip, wrist -- it is harsh to call him injury-prone, but fair to say his driving, aerial game lends itself to hard falls and injuries. The recent NBA Finals against Dallas marked the first time in Wade's career he heard media questions about his age, his aging. Those questions will only increase. He is at a point where rest and keeping his mileage down should be paramount.

I would recommend China... I understand they actually play aggresive defense in Turkey.
