Default Better one on one defender: Kobe Bryant or Dwayne Wade

Better one on one defender: Kobe Bryant or Dwayne Wade?

I'll go with Kobe on this, though DWade is pretty close.

probably kobe. the more knowledge you have the better defender you can be. e.g. - he can predict your next move.

I'll go with Wade this year. Kobe has been pretty lazy on D lately.

Kobe's obviously better, but he does tend to take games off against weaker teams.

when at their total focus on defense, Kobe, by far. His IQ is unmatched in the NBA. He still has enough athleticism and power to handle any perimeter player in this league.

Kobe Bryant, Pretty obvious. Overall defender would be more of a debate though, but I would suspect more people vote for Wade because he plays defense more often on nights than Kobe does.

they both have definite weaknesses and strengths; can't say there is a clear cut winner...

kobe is not in his athletic prime, and tends to get burned by quicker guards. probably has an iq/ experience advantage over wade

wade is undersized. He makes up for it though because of his incredible wingspan. he is younger and more athletic.he's also the best shot blocking guard in the league.

How is Wade undersized when he's 6'5" in shoes? (6'3 3/4 without Shoes)

Wade is only a little bit shorter than Prime Jordan ( 6'6" in shoes; 6'4 3/4" without), and wingspan is nearly 6'11 3/4".

That's why Wade is one of the best SG shot blocker in the NBA.

Wade is the superior help defender and side defender, but Kobe is the better man defender. He doesnt always give it his all but his best man defense is better than Wades best man defense

I dont know about that. Maybe in 2000-2004. Remember Kobe total focus was on Melo and he got muscled.
