My bad he is 6-4. Shump is not the playmaker Wade is clearly. Wade as a rookie won a championship as the PG. But Shump unlike Brewer and Fields makes good things happen on offense. He doesn't stand still like a statue and brick open jumpers. He penetrates, dishes and finishes and has a great stroke especially now that they have him not jumping as high on his jumpshot. Him and Felton will be a tough guard for opposing defenses

Wade won the championship in his third year, 2006, not his rookie season. Wade's always been a great all around player dating back to Marquette. During the 2003 NCAA tournament, he had a triple double over Kentucky, leading that team into the final four and making him a top 5 lottery pick. Shumpert, I feel, is in a different mold than Wade. He's athletically gifted, yet very raw. He's not as polished, and doesn't have the feel for the game like Wade does yet. Defensively, he's ahead of Wade, but offensively he still has a lot of work to do.
