Default Was Wade considered better than Kobe after 06?

What say you? Kobe had just blown a 3-1 lead in the first round while Wade went on to win a chip/finals MVP. Considering they are both SG's, the conversations were definitely hot.

In the NBA survey after the '06 season Kobe destroyed him 71%-21% for best SG in the league

Wade never had the media hype to be "considered" better than Kobe or Lebron but in 2007 he was better than both. He was better than Kobe in nearly every season from 2005-2012.

He was considered the best player in the world during that season before he got injured. Was also the MVP favorite.

Yes 2006 was the year Wade officially surpassed Kobe as the best shooting guard in the league.

I clearly remember Wade being the consensus best in the world at the time amongst NBA fans.

Im not saying Wade WAS better than Kobe. But I imagine it become a discussion for obvious reasons.

Like how did ISH react? How would ISH now react?

No, never. But Wade was top 5 for a longtime without question.

No. If you followed basketball back then you would have already known the answer to this silly question.

Alot of people were calling Wade the best player in the league before he got injured in 07 . If I recall correctly he was something like 29/7/6 on 49% and then the shoulder injury.

Wade needed an epic rig job to win ONE title with Shaq.

It's amazing how much Kobe elevated his teammates.

Shaq was a 3rd option scrub behind Antoine Walker under Wade.

This same guy was seen as the "MDE" just 2 years before

I guess there's a reason Kobe was the leading playmaker for 5 championship teams and is the 2nd best non-PG playmaker in history. Elevating everyone around him to greatness while playing within the flow of one of the most stat-restricting systems in basketball.

As opposed to forcing yourself to be the entire offense by holding the offense hostage in order to fraudulently force stats at the detriment of the strengths of your teammates and the detriment of the overall ball movement and flow of the team.

Kobe has the 2nd most assists in history for a non-PG and us Bran stans literally only know stats.

I'm only using our own logic

And the whole post is nothing but facts.

A longevity stat for a guy that played 2 decades is idiotic.
But going by your logic, who’s the GOAT non-PG playmaker in history?
