Miami HEAT star Dwyane Wade is having a very good week. Just days after his engagement to actress Gabrielle Union, Wade was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week for the games played December 16 through December 22, 2013.
Some have been looking for the missing piece to push this Heat team over the top. I wouldn’t say that UD is the final building block, but he can bring the intensity and help control the boards like almost no one else. Having him and Joel Anthony really gives the Heat a good 1-2 punch of energy in the lineup and off the bench. But more on that below the fold.
