Together, Dwayne Wade and LeBron James went to the NBA in 2003. They were big rivals for the first few years, and then LeBron, after seven seasons in an unsuccessful race for the championship ring, decided to move to Miami and join Wade, who had already tasted the winning champagne once (2006).
With Chris Bosh, who arrived in the sunny south of Florida that same summer, but not to rest, they set out on two campaigns, while they stumbled two more times in the grand final. In those years, the great friendship of the great trio, probably bigger in the media than Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden, strengthened.
While everyone stood up against them, they were as one, perhaps because, regardless of individual qualities, they were above all honest with each other, as Dwayne Wade is honest today when answering the question of who is the best player of all time.
Of course, he did not mention himself, because despite all the merits for all three Miami titles, especially for the first one until his friends arrived, he knows that there is a large number of players in front of him, that is, above him.
But he didn't even see LeBron at the top ... "LeBron is one of my close friends, I really respect what he's doing now, what he's done before, and what he'll do in the future. He'll be the greatest for many generations, but for me, Jordan is the greatest ever," Wade told the YouTube channel.
And while many have not even regained consciousness after such a "shock", Wade explained his statement. "At the end of his career, LeBron will be the best scorer in the NBA, he will end up in the top 5 assistants, he has already won four championship rings, and he will probably be fifth and sixth."
"It is certain that a conversation about him as the best of all time will be inevitable." "I'm a child from the Jordan era. I'm biased. For me, Jordan will always be the greatest in history. I started playing basketball because of him.
Each of us has the right to an opinion," Wade added. While most were shocked by Wade’s statement, it is certain that Wade has tremendous respect for LeBron with whom he has some of the fondest memories. Still, it’s hard to forget your childhood idols
