Heat guard Dwyane Wade still has plenty of cache.

As he put up a resurgent performance on the court this year, Wade saw his popularity spike with it. He was cheered at every arena in the league, perhaps marking the warmest overall reception he’s gotten since before the Big Three.

5. Derrick Rose
6. Dwyane Wade
