I dont really know about Wade being legendary. He had a legendary free throw parade in 06 but thats it. If it wasnt for the new Superteam he would be irrelevant and would be forgotten by new generation fans in about 5 years.
I dont consider prime dirk legendary. At least not as good as garnett, shaq, kobe, or duncan. He was certainly never treated that way when I watched basketball in the early to mid 2000s. He was just a notch below. This is the most hype I've ever seen him get this year.
Depends. Legend as in...hall of famer if their entire career went the way this year did? Or legend like..Dave bing and Bob Lanier are legends?
If this season repeated itself for an entire career:
Deron(id need to look into how hwalthy he was on the Nets I guess)
All of the mare hall of famers. And more than that I just dont care to keep going so lets not have anyone outraged I didnt mention...whoever.
If its just legendary like a lot of really good stars are legends given time...you gotta addquite a few guys.
I'm talking about players in their prime that are legends to the extent duncan, garnett, shaq, and kobe were back in the day. I dont think Dwight Howard was as good a big man as those three.. Amare wasn't either. And nash, melo, and paul weren't as dominant on the perimeter as kobe. Plus they seem to be past thier prime.
And the other guys you listed, deron, rose, westbrook, durant etc. aren't even in their primes yet. They're not legends right now.
Now? Or on my back then list? Kidd was a great, great point guard, but I don't think he was quite as good as those guys I mentioned. And I'm a nets fan. If he had a good pull up jumper though, he could have been one of the best two way players ever.
