Wade flew a bit under the radar in high school at Richards and started to really emerge as a star at Marquette. The Miami Heat took him with the fifth overall pick in the 2003 draft, and he's been a superstar ever since. He's been selected to eight All-Star Games, has won two titles, was named the 2006 Finals MVP and has averaged 25 points in his career.
