"Old man" Wade learning from Kobe



Neither Kobe Bryant nor Dwayne Wade will wow you with their blistering speed and slashing abilities anymore. Instead they implore a new method of attacking the basket by picking their shots carefully. As you have seen with Kobe as his skills diminish he has becomes more of a spot of shooter in regards the last couple of years. Wade no longer cuts with the intensity that he has, although he still does have a step or two that surprises me and brings a huge grin upon my face when he completes a euro step or gets his wobbly knees up for a dunk. Wade now picks his spots and is lethal from them. I can't remember a year where I was in awe of wades shooting like this. He's making the most of his touches this season shooting 55% from the field and evolving his game to a level that is more cerebral than physical. Players in this league are forced to reform their game in combat of time and Wade's progression has been a beautiful one to watch, just as Kobe's.
