Let's compare Lebron and Wade during the 27-win streak

Wade - 23/6/6
Bron - 27/8/8

Wade also didn't play in two of the wins

Yeah, Wade had some nice games inbetween but best player on his team?

Kobe post-ASB averaged 28/6/7 so it's not like Wade was putting up bigger numbers than him or carrying a team, he had the luxury of playing with great shooters, Bosh and Lebron at his peak. Kobe was out there playing 40-48 minutes every night in April to get an average team into the Playoffs.
