Dwyane Wade: NBA's Playoff Best

Dont' take our biased word for it, but take a look at the column by David Aldridge in today's Philadelphia Inquirer.

"So much was made at the start of the playoffs about how there was no Kobe, no Garnett, no LeBron. But there's a lot of Wade, and if people can't see that Wade's game is as lustrous and sunny as any superstar's in the NBA, that's their problem.

And if it's heretical to suggest that Wade may be just as good as James, just as prolific as Carmelo Anthony - that the Miami Heat guard might be a better pro than either of those two bigger names - we all may need to spend more time in church."

All of that and Wade made People magazine's list of the Most Beautiful People in 2005.

With ''Gold'' having been ruled out as the new nickname for Marquette University, and the school now turning to students and faculty to suggest a new one, Wade said the whole process is getting a bit silly.

''It's getting a little bit outrageous for a nickname,'' Wade said.

``I think Marquette will do a good job of making one, but I think they're making a big deal out of nothing.''
