#2 Dwayne Wade might be retiring but still has some game in him

A three-time NBA Champion, in his last season, in the Association, Dwayne Wade still has game. 35 points in 34 minutes is massive production from a guy who no longer starts and is apparently at the end of his career. 

This was easily Wade’s best outing of the season. The unfortunate thing is Miami could not turn Wade's performance into a win because too many other Heat players had off nights. For the season, Dwayne Wade is shooting 46.3%, from the field and amazingly is 39.6% from three-point range. 

Wade only averages 29% for his career from behind the arc. Always able to get to the basket at will and knock down mid-range shots, its remarkable that even at the end a great player is still evolving and working on his game. If Miami somehow sneaks into the bottom end of the playoff picture, in the Eastern Conference, Wade could be a nightmare for any potential first round match-up.
