Ibn Notes: In his short professional career, Dwyane Wade has made quite a mark. Overshadowed by fellow 2003 NBA fraftmates LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, Wade quickly carved out a name for himself. So much that by the end of 2005, Carmelo, though doing well, was pushed out of the competition. Now everyone was talking about King James and Flash. A humble and even-measured person, Wade counters his subdued attitude with highwire dunks, explosive drives to the basket and crazy circus shots. Dwyane Wade is a star and will continue being so for the next decade or more.
Accomplishments: Wade was named to the All-NBA Second Team and NBA
All-Defensive Second Team in 2005-06.
