D. Wade Robin to LeBron's Batman?

Dwyane Wade has really labored through the last few post seasons, but has always found a way to serve as Robin to King James’s Batman in the NBA Finals. Will he once again be able to do the same? The Heat are definitely counting on him. Coach Spoelstra wisely played D. Wade 54 of the 82 regular season games this season, allowing his body to be war ready at this juncture. It showed during the Eastern Conference Finals, when Wade averaged 18.4 points, five rebounds and 4.8 assists per game. But the Spurs are not the Pacers, and San Antonio will likely challenge Wade with so many looks defensively, forcing him to improvise. The great ones do and Wade’s ability to throw the superhero cape on will be tested greatly. (Photo: Ron Elkman/Sports Imagery/ Getty Images)
