Default ESPN agrees that D. Wade is currently the best SG



http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/page/...-guard-ratings


Quote:
1. Who's the best shooting guard in the NBA today?


Kevin P. Boudreau, via Twitter: D-Wade. Who else produces on the court and recruits two of the game's best players to come play with him?

Hayes Davenport, Celtics Hub: Dwyane Wade. The argument for Kobe Bryant is, like Kobe himself, losing its effectiveness. Wade's a slightly better scorer, a hugely superior rebounder and a marginally better passer and defender. It's not a huge surprise that he'd surpass Kobe at this point in their respective careers. What is a huge surprise is that Kobe has somehow become the more likable one.

Ryan DeGama, Celtics Hub: Wade gets the slightest of nods over Kobe, because he does more of his damage in the kill zone these days, while Bryant lingers on the perimeter. Wade's also more consistently capable on defense simply because he's got fewer miles on his odometer.

Dan Feldman, Piston Powered: Wade. He earns the slight edge over 15-year veteran Kobe Bryant, who no longer has the energy to defend at an elite level or play as much as Wade does. When you're among the best in the game, minutes played matter. Kobe spends too much time on the bench, which hurts the Lakers, so Wade takes the top spot.

Noam Schiller, Hardwood Paroxysm: From a purely statistical standpoint, Wade leapfrogged Kobe for the SG lead back in the 2008-09 season. In the two seasons since, Kobe's body has done nothing but deteriorate and his game has sagged out to the perimeter. As great as Bryant is, he can no longer match the physical force that is Wade on both ends of the floor.

The article also talks about the SG position in general, but I know more people will read and post in this thread since it is about Kobe.

No disrespect but it would be pathetic if bryant was still the best sg in the league after 15 seasons and at age 33.

Its not saying much considering the SG position is arguably the weakest position in the league. Or second weakest after center

Just how the SG & SF spot were the weakest positions in the league during the 90's.

This has been true for a while. Nothing even slightly controversial.

Who cares what ESPN thinks. Their opinion is irrelevant to me.

Lol how? And even if you feel those positions were the weakest, they weren't weak. The center position is terrible. And I'm convined that wade would be battling drexler for the secons spot. The rest drop considerably

Not much competition.


Kobe and Manu are old.

Roy blew out his knees.

JJ just doesn't have the "it" factor.


Monta deserves a shout out too, but he isn't as complete a player as Wade, and his size has a lot to do with that.

I agree that D.Whistle is currently the best flopper in the NBA. ESPN and their "experts" can kiss my balls.
