Dwyane Wade is fine with all of this.

Really, he is.

Wade played in the spotlight for seven seasons, but things have changed. The attention has diminished now that he's paired with a teammate who is playing like a superhero.

And apparently LeBron James' super power is making his future Hall of Fame teammates look like mortals. Although Wade completed his best five-game stretch of the season, it was just a footnote to all the gushing of James' recent play.

"I'm not looking for headlines, but I've been playing all right," Wade said. "He (James) can have all the headlines. It's cool."

James is playing so well that Wade's week went all but ignored. He averaged 24.8 points, six rebounds, 5.8 a.ssists and three steals during the Heat's five-game winning streak. While the media was constantly updating James' field goals numbers on Twitter, Wade was quietly shooting 51 percent.

"He's been making so much history, so I'm glad I can be in a little bit with him," Wade said.

It was expected for Wade to fall to the back-page when James signed with the Heat in 2010. No one expected it to go this far. James has won every Eastern Conference Player of the Month award this season while Wade has yet to win the weekly honor. His current numbers are better than the most recent winner, Chicago Bulls guard Nate Robinson, but Wade is guaranteed to finish behind James in this week's voting.

"You can't do anything about attention," center Chris Bosh said. "People are going to put their attention where they want to. You can't really combat that. You can't f!ght it. It's a waste of time. Only so many dudes can get the highlights."

Bosh should know that. He's been labeled as the third All-Star since they became teammates. With Wade, it's a bit different. He won a championship, an NBA Finals MVP trophy and became a top-five player without James.

Yet know he spends most of his interviews talking about how James played.

"We know what Dwyane is capable of," Bosh said. "You play within the rhythm of the game and things work out.

They worked out to perfection in the Heat's 107-97 victory against the Los Angeles Lakers Sunday at AmericanAirlines Arena. Wade finished with 30 points and a team-high five a.ssists. It was also the second time in a week he and James topped the 30-point mark in the same game.

"It's a good groove to be in," Wade said. "We're just both being aggressive, attacking. We're not doing it in a selfish way at all … We're doing it within our offense."

Wade's game went almost forgotten because of James becoming the first player in franchise history with five straight 30-point games and continuing his video game-like field goal percentage. It was Wade who scored nine consecutive points to hold off the surging Lakers while James was getting a breather in the fourth quarter. In all, he scored 16 fourth-quarter points and still had enough energy to defend Lakers guard Kobe Bryant.

"He was tireless," Spoelstra said. "I planned on getting him out for a couple minutes in the fourth quarter but he was playing with so much energy on both ends of the court … That's what makes him special, LeBron special, Chris special. That's why we wanted all three of those guys to set the tone for our franchise because they're true two-way players."

Wade has slowly made the transition from primary player to being just one of James' teammates. Last year it was him accepting James as the No. 1 scoring option. Now, he understands he no longer is the headliner.

And he's fine with it.

"We're a team," Wade said. "(James) deserves it. I'm just going to continue to try to get better behind the scenes and understand that no matter what, if I'm playing the way that I can play, we're a very, very tough team. So I'm going to continue to try to do that."

but not your hero


Wade’s final seven points came while he was being guarded by Bryant, who was asked if people forget how good Wade can be playing alongside James’ greatness.

“I don’t,” he said. “I’m definitely not in that category. Not me. I know what kind of a problem he is. I tried to focus on him as much as I can.

“They have two very special players, two of the best that I have seen. He seems to be rounding into form.”




it's the reason our team is the defending champion and your team is the biggest flop in basketball history. winners don't bicker over attention and fake machismo.

Because he isn't an egotistical douche bag who refused to take a back-seat therefore breaking up his dynasty like your boy did in the 00's?

That's an L now?



If Kobe had Wade's mindset you guys would have won 5 in a row.

And is why I do respect him as opposed to another superstar SG. Wade realizes in order for them to get what they came together for Lebron has to be the man guy. I guarantee if Kobe was in Wade's shoes he'd still be trying to AVERAGE 30 a game even wit Lebron and Chris

Lol you can tell he don't, probably not the taking the backseat part but having it thrown in his face after every game "So how does it feel knowing Lebron hi-jacked yo team?" "What did you think of Lebron tonight?"

Until LeBron says Robin is the best player in the league , Kobe will never be robin.
