Maybe that's just me though?
The main argument for 09 Kobe over 09 Wade is Kobe's playoff run which was definitely superior (not just the championship or accolades per say but the performance itself) but 06 Wade had a playoff run much superior to Kobe's as well who I thought was rather subpar against the Suns defense given what he had achieved in the season.
It doesn't add up to me.
If you base it on individual skill-set Kobe is better than Wade right now too and that's really not the case.
