Miami is Wade's World, And We Are Just Living In It

Early in the second half of today's Heat game against the Utah Jazz, Dwyane Wade surpassed Alonzo Morning as the franchise's all-time scoring leader.

Zo finished his Heat career with 9,459 points in 593 games. Wade needed 21 points Saturday to surpass that total. He scored 50.

That puts Wade as No. 1 on the Heat's all-time scoring list at 9,489 so far.

Wade is in the midst of completely re-writing the Heat record books.

He is closing in on the best single-season, scoring-wise, in Heat history. A record he already holds from his NBA championship season (2,040 points).

He is already first on the Heat's all-time steals list. Eight in rebounds (just ahead of Shaq), second in assists (behind Tim Hardaway), and currently fourth in blocked shots (just behind Shaq).

Soon enough, Wade will likely own every major statistical record in Miami Heat history. He is already the greatest player in Heat history, and the records are mere formalities. Some even say he's already the greatest athlete in Miami sports history.

Either way, this is Wade's World, and we are just living in it right now.
