Only players playing well are:
Welcome to the Miami Cavaliers! LBJ having to put up 30, 10, and 10 again due to everyone else not pulling their weight.
The only way in which Wade is hurting them is relative to expectations. For the amount of shots that he's taking, his offensive output is respectable, and he's still giving 5 asts, 5 rebs, and strong defense.
This isn't J.R. Smith going 6/21. Wade's not scoring much, but at least at least he's not shooting much either.
But, of course, you don't simply expect "respectable" from Wade. However, unless his touches are significantly upped, it's going to be difficult to raise his production much higher. There are too many players competing for shots-- even aside from LeBron-- and Wade is committed to playing unselfishly to the extent that he's still averaging the 5 apg even with the reduction in touches.
Bosh is in the same situation. You can't expect him to give much more, given how little time he spends with the ball (although he still has to get more rebounds).
