Btw Wade when he wanted to be was a nasty man defender, his long arms really help with strips steals and blocks on 1v1s, just lazy or conditioning.
He's a good on ball defender if his man is a scorer.
Which is why he was the Heat's most consistent defender vs Paul George the last 2 years...
Where things can go pear shaped is if you try to stick him on a dude who only stands in the corner, he becomes disinterested in him and tries to make something happen where the ball is and can get burnt by a scrub. If a star gets 20 on Wade its gonna be 7/18, a "scrub" could go 5/9 from 3.
