The Dynamic Duo

Two supermen after a Ring.

During their relatively brief stint as teammates, Flash and Superman were able to soar above the League and claim the 2006 NBA Championship. Shaq and Dwyane Wade’s reign as the most dominant inside-out duo around was short-lived, though, as O’Neal was dealt to Phoenix during the ’07-08 campaign.—Adam Fleischer

    I still love the Wade/Flash-Shaq/Superman shot more than anything.

    Wow, it’s crazy how much younger DWade looks when this was just a few years ago. Not that he looks old now, but he really kinda has a babyface in this picture… even though he’s trying to look tough lol

    Shaq should have stayed in Miami.

  • Superman Osman

    Cosigning Anton. This was probably the worst trade made last year. Even Shaq is too proud to admit. The good ol’ days eh? Zee they retroed the sh*t out of the cons, I’m getting a pair probably next week

    I bet wade thought they’d be together forever in that pic.

    i dont think he looks much older than this pic, but he is more fat in the face than this moment, i guess in this time he wasnt using anabolycs haha.
    also now he dresses like an idiot, what are this dumb jackets tight to the body come on.

    i support allen iverson, he always stay in his style.
