    This is the biggest joke of a card for a player like DWade!

    How does an 80 dunk make sense?

    55 block? LOL

    77 Steal? smh

    73 Reaction Time? For one of if not the best passing lane cherry pickers at his peak.

    His mobility stats should also be bumped up a bit. At his peak, especially in 06 he was literally a 'flash' on the court. Players struggled to just keep up with him.


    It hurts my soul knowing how amazing DWade was and 2K always giving my boy cheap shots just because MJ and Kobe are GOAT shooting gaurds. Unique style of SG compared to MJ and Kobe. His 12'-13" card plays better than this one it's sad.


    Ikr what a disgrace to 06 wade


    yeah this card is a fucking joke. They better release another diamond Dwade sometime. This card is horrible.. 78 post fade? 84 mid??????????????????jasljkfjs dlf galksje fk.hs kgsha;lkgh; shd;gkl seriously how I feel about this


    diamond wade tho


    2k is riding Currys dick too much. Currys MVP card has 85 steal when this D-Wade only has a 77 and was one-tenth under Currys steal.


    What's wrong with his 55 block??


    Wade is the best Shot Blocking guard of all time, the stats show it, and the film does too. He has blocked multiple 7 footers dunk attempts.

    Show 4 replies...

    What do you think his block rating should be?


    Well that season he averaged nearly a block per game, so i would say that he deserves around a 65-70, considering other players in this game have around that rating with the same averages.


    Well Nate Robinson averaged 0.1 blocks, but he stuffed Yao Ming like Thanksgiving dinner so he deserves 99 block.


    Yea once..... Wade always does it.


    Lol every fanboy in this site wants their favorite player to be a 99


    80 dunk? It should be like 94.


    I know right. One of the most athletic players of all time should get at least a 90 dunk


    His spin dunk and the time he killed Varajao (may he rest in peace) still give me goosebumps.

    Show 3 replies...

    I know right almost broke his back. Varajao literally rolled in a ball.


    Usually when players get knocked to the ground on a dunk are either taking a charge or much smaller, thats what made that dunk special to me

    Varajao rolled into a fucking Bakugan lmao


    3rd best SG of All Time only 93? 96 seems fair




    1) Erving was a SF and per BBallRef ,he didn't have a single season where he started at SG.

    2) T-Mac and VC are not even comparable to Wade. VC has made the Finals a grand total of ZERO times. The farthest he has ever led his team while being the "man" is the ECSF. When he was a role player and had Prime Dwight Howard, he managed to get to the ECF. Looking at his "Peak" Numbers, it pales in comparison to Wade. Wade was a staple for 25/7/5/2/1 in his prime on near 50% shooting. Wade has 3 rings to Carters none and has 5 Finals apperances and made the ECF 6 times. He likely would have another Finals appearance and a shot at a ring if he didn't go down in the '05 ECF. This is discounting the fact that Wade is the best shot blocking guard off all time and was a lockdown defender and one of the leagues best help defenders. Youtube "Wade blocking 7 footers".

    3) T-Mac is an interesting case. While his "peak" numbers didn't even approach the stratosphere of Wade's efficiency, he did manage to snag a scoring title on well rounded numbers. However, he did little to no damage in the playoffs. He did not get out of 1st round once during his prime. Had he not joined the Spurs as a bench warmer, he would not even have a SF,CF or Finals appearance.

    4) I made this a seperate point because it exemplifies the greatness of Wade. He averaged 34.7/7.8/3.8/2.7/1 in the '06 Finals. This is what seperates him from every SG not named MJ/Kobe. He did his best work in the playoffs and when faced with his back against the wall, down 0-2 to the Finals, he stepped up and took over. This is quite frankly, the second BEST Finals performance by a guard after Jordans '93 Finals with the Suns. Yes, even better than any one of Kobe's Finals performances. Jordan and Kobe however, have more rings, equal or better stats and stayed healthy over a longer period of time. Had Wade never had an issue with his meniscus, this argument would be a lot closer. But got to give respect where it's due and the SG rankings are, Jordan>Kobe>Wade.

    You just seem intent on putting down Wade.

    Iverson is career 42.5% with a career 50% TS vs Wade who is a 56% TS. He is a volume scorer who revolutioned modern day Basketball in a cultural sense. On the court, he was a shoot first think second player. He was a gritty player but was far from a lockdown defender. He gambled a lot hence his inflated steals. His Defensive Box Plus/Minus (despite his steals) shows in every year of his career, his team was better on defense with him on the bench. Wade has never had that happen once. Wade beats him in every category outside of 3pt shooting and ball handling. Wade is more versatile on defense and is the greatest shot blocking guard of all time. He also has a more complete offensive arsenal with his solid post game along with his excellent mid range and rim finishing abilities.

    Consider this, at the end of the day, if you're starting a championship team who would you rather have? A sub 43% shooter who has no real pluses to his game other than his offense and often times a ball stopper or a versatile two way superstar that is a net postive on both ends that just happens to shoot near 49% while chipping in an absurd ~1.4 blocks a game?

    The aforementioned is soley looking at individual stats. From an accolades perpective, Wade still has him beat. Iverson has only made it to the Finals once vs Wade's 5 times. 0 rings to 3 and a Finals MVP. Iverson's MVP is something Wade does not have but Wade played during LeBron and Kobe's peak (Two top 10 All-Time players).

    All these negatives I'm saying about Iverson are in comparison to Wade, because let's be honest, both are 1st ballot HOF's. I love Iverson but he does not hold a candle to Wade.






    Now that I've got more time, in addition to my post 7 hours ago, I don't even know why this is an argument.

    Wade was a runaway better defender, rebounder, blocker, equal or better passer when accounting for USG% and # of teams possesions used and a more effiicient scorer. The only in game attribute AI was better at is 3pt scoring.

    Wade was also better at intangibles. He was a better leader, unselfish, willing to adapt and was a catalyst to LeBron James' growth (See post '11 Finals) which is unlike Iverson/Melo and most importantly found a way to get it done in the clutch during big time playoff games, which with the except of game 1 of the '01 Finals, cannot be said for Iverson.

    Iverson is one of the best to ever do it, and probably had the second greatest cultural impact after MJ in the modern era but for him to be even in the conversation as being better than a proven unselfish winner in Wade is asinine, especially when he couldn't get it done even when he had serious help.


    Damn appreciate your knowledge for the game!


    Yeah D wade is either 2nd or 3rd for sure. Then after that are t mac, iverson, clyde, and vince respectively


    You infact could not be more wrong. During Iverson's time in Denver, the teams defensive rating was 10th and 11th. The problem with that Denver team was that Iverson never was willing to develop their chemistry with Melo. They were both shoot first think second players. Iverson was not willing to adapt his declining game to a budding superstar in Melo. That's why they failed. They had Marcus Camby who was in DPOY conversation manning the middle and also happened to the blocks leader.

    During the Finals run, as you say, Iverson did carry the Sixers. But not without major help in crucial games. In game 6 and 7 of the ECSF, Iverson went 14/51 shooting, both games were series clinching games. In Game 7, it was Aaron McKie who stepped up and outscored Iverson on 8/16 shooting and Dikember put in 10/17. His stats for the 01 Finals run came out to 33 points on 30 shots. That's abysmal for a player carrying his team with great sucess.

    Wade on the other hand, has had his teammates crap the bed during crucial games (Check Shaq's Finals and 06 Playoffs #'s) and had to do the work by himself as evident by the 06 Finals. Despite what you think the 06 team was filled with over the hill veterans much like the 01 Sixers. The difference? Wade helped them play better and he himself took over efficiently.


    T-Mac > Wade > Jordan (zone illegal) > Kobe (not so effective)

    Wade '06 - '10 (333 games, 37.9 mp/g)
    PER 27.6 AST% 37.3 USG% 34.4 BPM 8.1 VORP 32.1
    Playoffs (41.4 mp/g)
    PER 26.0 AST% 30.6 USG% 33.4 BPM 8.1

    T-Mac '01 - '05 (373 games, 39.7 mp/g)
    PER 25.6 AST% 27.1 USG% 32.3 BPM 6.8 VORP 32.8
    Playoffs (43.9 mp/g)
    PER 26.8 AST% 31.0 USG% 35.0 BPM 7.4


    Wait. Did you just say Wade and T-Mac is better than Jordan?


    And in early '2000 was best defense.


    Every D-Wade except the all star one is posing in almost the same way haha


    I just realized that. That's a lil creepy


    def alot better than this king of steals speed and layups his spin move dunk was absolute cheeese in 2k13


    Averaged like 35 PPG in the playoffs to carry the Heat to their first ring. This all you got 2K?


    lebron did it too in 2015, he avg 35.8 ppg , but everybody said he chocked.....i dont understand the hate, but this card shouldve been a diamond.


    he choked by 3 pointers 18% i think he shot from deep

    Show 3 replies...

    MJ was a worse three point shooter than Lebron most of his career, so are you gonna tell me MJ choked his first 5 seasons with the Bulls? MJ lost in the 1995 ECSF against the Magic. Jordan even choked in a late game possession turning it over and losing one of the games in the series, losing in 6 games. Lebron has only lost the ECSF twice, Jordan 3 times. Lebron also has never lost in the first round, Jordan did 3 times. Just bc curry the new wave and hes good at shooting threes doesnt make him the greatest, the fact that you had to pull up an insignificant stat when the man single handed-ly won 2 games with a banged up team and without stars doesnt discredit what the man tried to do, not even MJ was good at everything you know, but hypebeasts and ESPN only endorse what they want to endorse....


    ik i wasn't saying lebron is horrible and jordan is g.o.a.t..


    I couldn't agree with you more.


    93 for a 2006 Dwyane Wade is pretty accurate but his attributes arent even close, I hope 2k releases a 2008-09 Dwyane Wade who should be around a 94-95 overall


    I HAVE to get this card. Favorite player in the league. I would honestly rather have him then 99 overall Jordan


    D Wade in the 2006 finals was the closest thing I've ever seen to MJ...yes even better than Kobe IMHO


    Theres a card for that!


    For what?This is his 06 card

    Show 1 reply...

    There is one of those TBT "moments" Wade 98 overall. He looks beastly.


    He should have been a diamond


    my guess is this card will get different stats upon release, not feeling 80 driving dunk and a 55 block for my fav player of all time..


    I agree Wade deserves way better but these stats are official. They won't change.


    That 84 on ball is a joke.


    higher or lower?


    higher alot higher


    love wade but this is waaay too low for him in his prime


    This isn't his prime though


    I mean this card

    Show 4 replies...

    When is then?


    like 2 years after this


    Wow. I checked the stats and, yeah. Pretty much all of his best season averages were in the 08-09 season.


    Yea that season he had like 5 games of 45+ points and multiple 15+ assist games


    Mid range and driving dunk (and block) are all retarded just like steph curry's dynamic card's speed. HE HAS 95 SPEED ON THAT. HOW IS 06 WADE SLOWER THAN CURRY! IS 2K RETARDED? Not to mention that LeBron's MVP card has 84 speed....lets all take that in for a while...84 SPEED?! So apparently, 2k thinks that curry is a WHOLE LOT FASTER than MVP LEBRON?! LeBron was a freaking freight train. He was and still is insanely talented AND fast. Every one is riding curry's D man. It's sad...


    curry card over rated bc he is in his prime, curry is crafty, but is a slow footed point guard that cant defend gurds his level, 2k is a bunch of hypebeasts that watch espn, im pretty sure they dont take time to look at the stats


    So Prime D.Wade is not a diamond ?? and his driving dunk is a 80 ????? the disrespect is real.


    08 09 was prime wade...thats his best season


    He should be dumb cheap due to all star already out and tbt diamond coming, I will cop this card since I am a fan.


    I hope so! #HeatNation



    Show 2 replies...

    Shhhh don't let them know....
    I expect a 80k-120k price for him. Hope so!


    hahahah but that seems about right I think it will be 90 to 150 tho


    Disrespectful, 2K.


    He plays like garbage nothing like wade i went to roster editor got his amazing 12-13 card and put the 03 ratings on him because he actually plays like signature wade not this garbage


    Not really. I've used him before, works just fine. Just have to know how to use him properly.




    Coming from a die-hard Wade fan, I'm not sure he deserves a 97. Definitely a 96, but probably not 97.


    im a die-hard Wade fan but i think that 96-97 is too high for Wade, At most Wade should be a 94-95 overall

    Show 3 replies...

    Really? I don't think a 96 is too high. It might be on the higher end of possible overalls, but IMO not unrealistic.


    imo i think 95 is the highest Wade should be realistically, if he had an 08-09 card


    I guess can respect that. He had an amazing season, but it wasn't insane.




    Lower the 3PT rating, up the driving dunk, layup, steal, block, reaction time


    Question, do u believe this dwade is statically better then 08 09 dwade?


    He should be at least a 95. He carried that team to a championship and when Shaq carried Kobe they still gave him a 95


    when is this card coming out, any one have any idea????


    no mate sorry


    all good g


    This is trash, he is a much better mid-range shopter than an 85. 2k hosed D-Wade.


    Delete this card 2k please


    He'll be great for my lineup hopefully he's under 80k


    underrated as fk


    They released this card but still called HIDDEN TBT


    How is he only 93. He should be higher


    This Card Is SICK In the paint but not much of an upgrade from the rewards wade! Please check out my review of this card! http://2kmtcentral.com/16/reviews/1706/the-flash


    Whenever you commented on this card, I knew you had a review going. Btw I love you're vids


    I know D Wade can't shoot the three to well but a 70???


    He shot 17% that season


    Umm..teams purposely left him outside of the arc because he was that ass at shooting 3s. 70 is already extremely generous


    Hi, if any admins see this i'd like to help with putting up ps4 prices


    45 contact dunk? I guess Varejao doesn´t agree lmao


    This card is so underrated. Yeah his stats should be higher, but if you try the card he plays incredibly.


    is he still worth getting now? or is a shooter a better option?


    Should i just wait an get the Reward Wade an use MT for somebody else??


    I can tell you, that is definitely not a picture of Dwyane Wade from 2006.


    Anyone else notice there's 2 throwbacks from the same year?!


    Really on top of the rewards 90 ovr then on top of the all star diamond 96 were getting another '06 98 ovr Wade 98


    His threes need to be better. 2K must have not seen his buzzer beater against Chicago cause if they did, his moving 3 would be at LEAST 88.


    He shot 17% from three in 06. Be grateful he even ended up with a 70.


    Chill fam. My bad
