APG: 4.3

Dwyane Wade
Notes: C-USA Player of the Year, First-Team All-American
The Skinny:

Wade epitomized the do-everything player as he turned Marquette into a national power the last two years, leading the team in most major statistical categories.

Wade is a scorer at the offensive end, using his explosiveness to get to the basket and often score over defenders who still have a chance to stop him once he’s past the perimeter defenders. He’s great in transition and will get his share of baskets there, with the weakest part of his game being his jump shot. To his credit, he doesn’t take many long range shots, and he has been streaky when he has taken several in a game. He rebounds well for the guard position and for his size, and plays good defense all the way.

Wade projects as a mid-lottery pick. With some improvement on his jump shot, he could be a big scorer for a long time, as teams will then have to respect that and open up his bread and butter game going to the basket.

Now that Jerry Krause is no longer the Bulls GM, expect new GM John Paxson to start getting things right. First step? Draft someone who can play the game. The Bulls need to look no further than do-it-all guard Dwyane Wade as their choice. Wade will be able to help out at a number of positions for Bill Cartwright, and it only helps he’s a local product.

2/3/03 – Bill Thayer – Dwyane Wade
His name evokes images of a certain sit-com character. You know, the one with the flip glasses who was in love with Denise Huxtable. He plays in Milwaukee, not for the Bucks, but in the same arena. He’s an All-America candidate from Chicago, but did not even finish in the top five in Illinois Mr. Basketball voting his senior year of high school. Maybe you’ve heard of him, or misspelled his name, he’s Marquette’s star junior Dwyane Wade. . . .
