Dwyane Wade’s all-time starting 5 features players he won titles with
During an interview with Complex’s Alex Wong, Wade lays out who his five would be, starting with himself being the point man of the group.
“It’s gotta be the guys I won championships with,” Wade said. “Ray Allen at the two, LeBron at the three, Bosh at the four and Shaq at center. And we’d have Udonis Haslem as the sixth man.”
That would be a formidable squad to say the least. Alongside James and Bosh, Wade collected two NBA championships, while his first was won with Shaquille O’Neal anchoring the squad in the post.
Allen, of course, hit one of the most pivotal threes in league history during the 2013 NBA Finals, forcing a Game 7 against the San Antonio Spurs, which led to the Heat claiming their second consecutive ring.
Maybe the most interesting inclusion is that Wade sees himself running the point with James working off the ball. It comes as no surprise that Wade would stack his top five with players that helped lead him to basketball immortality, even as he could make a strong case for having suited up with the strongest collection of teammates in league history.
While James is the only active member still getting up shots in the league, never say never for this quintet, who could still likely get theirs on any given day.
