How much does Dwyane Wade mean to the Heat compared with two other stars who drive their teams, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant (shown here at the Beijing Olympics)? Through Sunday's games, here are the approximate percentage of his team's points each had created on offense (points + [assists √ó 2]), the approximate percentage of points each had saved on defense ([steals + blocks] √ó 1.5) and the percentage of points each had scored relative to the next top scorer on their team. Clearly Wade is a main man among main men.
