not sure he will make it in the league. Def not D-Wade.

he is a short combo guard. they usually don't do too well.

Almost exact same body type as Wade and similar play style though.

He doesn't have a similar playstyle at all. A slashing guard with strong finishing ability? A dime a dozen dude. Hell the Clippers scrub 2nd year player Leslie has highlights that make him look like Wade but you can easily flip that to Westbrook, Rose and all other elite athletic wings without a shot.

Wade has much better handles, incredible finishing ability outside of dunks (Jordan hands), great defense and is a good playmaker. All this video shows is dunks and a couple blocks so how can you compare? I think Westbrook is a better comparison just from this clip because Wade is known for CRAZY layup finishes in traffic, not dunking EVERYTHING. Westbrook on the other hand has a higher dunk tendency than Wade.

There will never be another D.Wade my man. A strong, quick, slasher that is extremely versatile and lethal as a shot locker? If only his jumper is on this season.

I don't know if you ever seen him outside of this video, but Purvis does play alot like Wade and was better than Wade was as a college freshman. (Although Wade improved tremendously of course throughout college) Very special player, if he plays up to his talent he should be an All-Star in this league eventually but next D-Wade is impossible to say.

Tony Wroten reminds me of Wade. 6'5" combo guard built like Wade used to be, who is known as a slasher, can block shots, and does not have a consistent jumper. The only thing with Wroten is he's a lefty.

That's vague though, that also could describe Rondo since Wroten is a PG with pretty good vision. I guess it's too early to tell but I can't see a little bit of Wade with what I've seen so far.

I even mentioned I haven't seen him outside of this. Just saying this video isn.t enough to say next Wade.

Why do people still say this? Westbrook and Rose are pretty money from mid range. As for Wade, you don't put up a 30/5/7 season without a mid range j at 6'4. He was off because he was injured last season, but prime Wade was at least average from mid range if not good (depending on what criteria you're using to judge).
