Best: Miami Heat — Dwyane Wade
It might feel like Dwyane Wade was a second banana now, but he was always at least 1B to LeBron’s 1A, and he also won a title with the Heat before LeBron James even arrived.
Flash at his peak was one of the game’s most unstoppable scorers, and NBA fans should count themselves grateful that Wade was able to adapt his game and continue to be great through endless injury nicks and niggles.
Wade is a 13 time All Star and a three time NBA champion, and he remains one of the game’s most recognizable faces. NBA fans best enjoy his final ride over the next few months.
Worst: Miami Heat — Michael Beasley
The Heat used the second pick in the 2008 draft on Michael Beasley, who looked like a star out of Kansas State. Two years later the Heat saw LeBron James and Chris Bosh join Dwyane Wade in South Beach, and Beasley might have been the perfect fourth banana.
Instead he was deemed so bad that he was traded in essentially a salary dump. Beasley’s still bouncing around the league. He’s been on not one team. Not too. Not three, not four, not five. Not six, not seven…
