He’s Definitely Not Him!

He’s alright but he’s not him.

Rodney Stuckey is good but he is no Dwyane Wade. In fact, he’s far from him. Not even on his planet!

There has been talk all around town about how Stuckey is just as good as Wade and how he could possibly be better than him but this is absolutely absurd! The Pistons fans in the state of Michigan are way to eager to place him in the same caliber with the elite players of the National Basketball association way before he pays his dues.

I can see where the Wade and Stuckey comparisons stem from but I am not ready to entertain them in any way, shape, or form. They do have similar slashing  ability, as well as a similar body type and overall agressiveness (…and the same jersey number) but that is where it stops.

Wade’s abilities are unmatched, especially from someone of Stuckey’s stature.

Despite the Miami Heat’s, 93-90, loss to the Detroit Pistons last night at the Palace of Auburn Hills, The Flash was still in the place with style and grace. Wade laced the Pistons with 29 points, 7 rebounds, 13 assists, 3 steals, and 2 blocks.

Stuckey held his own though as he dropped 18 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists on the Heat.

This was a decent win but the Pistons are still struggling as they finally snapped thier four-game losing streak. It’s kind of hard to be optimistic about the franchise when they continue to struggle so badly. 

The fans are even realizing this as the Pistons’ franchise-record sellout streak at 259 games was also snapped last night. 

When the league leader in points can’t fill up the house then there is more than a problem.

  1. I agree the Stuckey/Wade comparisons have gone a bit too far. They started as a way to describe Stuckey’s game to people who hadn’t had a chance to see him play. Stuckey, then, put together some great games and people started to take the comparisons to another level. There’s no way Stuckey will ever be at Wade’s level, though.
