07:06 AM ET 05.14 | Chicago didn't give its home fans much reason to cheer Monday, and the Heat certainly didn't miss Dwyane Wade -- at least not yet. Wade and his health have become the great wild card in the Heat's run to repeat. ... Wade is the big mystery. He is what you cannot count on from game to game anymore, not because he is 31 now and not because he defers to James now even when healthy. It's that knee. It has changed who he is able to be. And the unspoken reality is this: Miami didn't need Wade at all to waltz past Milwaukee in the first round, when he rested the final game of a four-game sweep. Miami obviously doesn't need Wade's A-game to get past a game but lame Chicago. But Miami will need more from Wade.

Even w/out Wade the Heat is still pretty balance. LeBron is surrounded by shooters which makes his job a lot easier.

Looks like he's in decline and soon-to-be coming out with those ridiculous pants he had on with his legs crossed.

Wade, like many other NBA players, has a fashion stylist who picks out his outfits, and she says her goal is for him to know what it's like to be a woman.
"They know what women have to go through on a regular basis," Calyann Barnett told the Palm Beach Post. "We spend all this time getting pretty, and you know, most guys don't even notice."
"This is evil stylist talk - making guys understand what it's like to be a woman," she says of the players getting dressed up for the five minutes they'll spend at a postgame podium.

always been a big fan of D-Wade ., when he came into the league he was dominant scorer played with passion and was very humble . The last few years though I think the fame has really gone to his head constantly complaining to refs on every play , disappearing in games , and wearing these ridiculous outfits like He is bigger than life . What the hell was he wearing yesterday pokodot suit with tight capris ,no socks and penny loafers ?? man up dude !!

Couldn't see the pic. DoD computers block whatever they find offensive.
