This. Wade is more than capable of creating good shots for others but I don't think having an older seemingly always injured Wade guard waterbug PGs like Westbrook and Collison is a great idea.

He would play them well IMO, but it wouldn't be worth the wear and tear.

When Wade got drafted, he was originally a point guard. However, it wouldn't the best interest at this point in time to slide him over to PG.

I would move LeBron to the PF spot and move Battier over to the SF spot. I don't know why coach Spo doesn't see that. It would work wonders, but then again he's always got talent to bail his ass out.

By many, you mean 2 seasons ? Sure. LeBron averaged 4 seasons of 7+ apg. LeBron should definitely be the facilitator, because he is also more willing and why Wade should not move to PG. The offense that the Heat run requires spot up shooters and Wade is obviously not that type of player, nor is he anywhere near that.

See a lot of ppl tryin to see if their 2k13 fantasies would work in real life. So many reasons why wade won't work as pg.

He'll get owned defensively. Right now he's guarding the lesser wing player which gives him ano opportunity for some weakside help d. Putting him on pg makes him guard quicker pg's and go through screen and rolls every game.plus he'd be out in the perimeter more and less likely to make ano impact with his help d.

Also, Lebron plays 40 mpg, so even if wade goes to pg, lebron will still be handling the ball and wont need his "play making" skills.

Huh? Kobe has been playing PG for the last few games and has gotten 6+ assists in each of those games and has been running the offense beautifully.

Hell, he's been the main playmaker for most of his career.

Kobe was the de facto PG when Shaq was in town for three consecutive championships.

I thought you mean over 7+, but yeah your right, that's still pretty close.

Still, he's not THAT much more of willing passer than James, so a move to PG is rather pointless in this system.

Huh? When Kobe played point, he's the the best that we had seen since Magic but Kobe only play point-guard occasionally if only he can play point-guard full time then he would be the best in the league just like how he's the best sg right now..
