wade is more than just a weak side shotblocker. he does it in every way possible. on the perimeter, manning the paint, weak side, etc.
Wade's man defense is criminally underrated, he does have a tendency to allow guys to go buy him though and rely on his athleticism and length to recover though.
The idea he's a liability playing head up D is nonsense though.
