The latest to defend Wade in this argument is his own son, Zaire Wade:

This comes in response to Pierce’s arguments on NBA Countdown when asked who had the better career between the two elite perimeter scorers:
“That’s easy!” the Celtics star said. “I could say that off the bat. That’s me.”
The younger Wade is only a junior in high school, so he likely missed most of Pierce’s career, but he is right that the 41-year-old did only win one NBA title in 19 years in the league. On the other hand, he is a 10-time All-Star with 26,397 career points.
Still, Dwyane Wade has had an outstanding career as one of the best of his era. He has earned 13 All-Star selections and won three NBA titles with the Miami Heat.
Although Pierce argued Wade had help with Shaquille O’Neal and LeBron James, among others, the guard was still a key part of each of those championships.
Unsurprisingly, his son defended him.
