    Default How could the "goat" team up with a player this much better than Kobe.. and lose?

    .
    Wade was the #2 player behind Lebron in 2010:


    [COLOR="DarkRed"]WADE 2010:[COLOR="White"].[/COLOR] 27/5/7.. 28.0 PER.. 0.224 ws.. 9.4 bpm.. 8.0 vorp[/COLOR]
    [COLOR="Navy"]KOBE' 2010:[COLOR="White"].[/COLOR] 27/5/5.. 21.9 PER.. 0.160 ws.. 3.6 bpm.. 4.0 vorp[/COLOR]


    But how could the "goat" team up with the next best player in the league and not win every time?...

    How could the "goat" team up with the next best player in the league and then lose in 2011, and be the underdog in 2012?.. How could they lose or be an underdog 3 of 4 years including a record defeat and goat choke?

    Wait.. they had a top 4 PF and the 2nd goat shooter too?... 4 HOF's? yet only 2/4?

    Because in the mid 2000s Nike had to pour all it's resources into one mega star and since Adidas already did the ground work for establishing Kobe's sneaker presence, Nike had to prioritize LeBron to the media over Kobe and establish him for the long run. The funny thing is despite this, Kobe's shoes still sell better.

    Goat + next best player = dominant dynasty, not losing and underdog

    So something is off in the equation.. obviously lebron isn't goat - that's the problem with the equation

    Actually, everyone knows that Wade still had some prime left through 2012

    Only in 2013 was he reduced to Pippen-level (only 20/5/5 in the Finals)

    Wade was top 2 in 2010, so teaming up with Wade = MJ teaming up with Bird... Lebron should've 4-peated

    Wade was top 2 in 2010, so teaming up with Wade = MJ teaming up with Bird... Lebron should've 4-peated and won 70+

    2014 Wade <<<<<<<<<<<< 2010 Wade. There is no argument that 2010 Wade has any relevance to 2014 Wade.

    2011 James played awful in the finals. Yes if he played even remotely close to his abilities they probably win. Thanks for that revelation.

    Are we done here?






    (Just wondering, how do James 2011 finals stats stack up to Jordan's 1994 finals stats? Both players in their prime so that should be a good comparison.)

    When did Wade average 15 on 34% like 96' pippen?.. Yet mj still won those Finals

    When did bosh or love average 4/8 for the entire playoffs like 97' Rodman?.. Yet mj still won that year

    And pip averaged 15 on 41% in the 98' Finals, while rodman averaged 4/8... Yet mj still won

    So quit making excuses...

    In 2013, Wade avg. 16 for an entire postseason, yet LeBron still won.

    Starters Bosh and Mike Miller went scoreless in game 7 of the Finals. Ray Allen also held scoreless.... yet LeBron still won.
