Default Re: Why is Wade one the best shot blockers....

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.
