MIAMI -- Ever since LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade joined up in the summer of 2010, coach Erik Spoelstra has often communicated with them like an investment adviser. Spoelstra’s recommendation? Diversify your portfolio if you want to maximize long-term growth.
That recommendation became more of a necessity for Wade this offseason. After battling bone bruises in the playoffs that sapped almost all of his explosiveness, Wade found himself in uncharted territory as a basketball player. He was often ignored. The Spurs dared him to shoot from the perimeter, dared him to be a weapon off the ball. And often times, Wade struggled to adjust.
