Dwyane Wade has always been considered the catalyst for the Miami Heat forming a big three and going to three straight NBA Finals. Wade of course convinced LeBron James and Chris Bosh that 3 is better than one, and the two gave agreed to give up their singular spotlight on other teams to join Wade in Miami. After back to back championships, and a tight budget, Wade says he’s “done helping the Heat with personnel decisions.” Among the rumors swirling during free-agency was a clandestine meeting involving Dwyane Wade and Pat Riley with Lamar Odom. Not only didn’t it happen, but Wade said he removed himself from the team’s free-agent recruitment this offseason. “I left that all to them,” Wade said, aware of the luxury-tax limitations of the Heat’s efforts. “I got away, understanding that we have little that we can do. And Pat Riley is the best at what he does, so he’s fine. We all understand the nature of the beast, what we’re dealing with.” Wade probably feels the need to focus on his health, and his future at this point.  The Heat at some point will need to make a personnel decision on Wade.
