Default The Kobe Bryant vs. Dwayne Wade debate should never be brought up again.

Kobe Bryant vs. Dwayne Wade is a ridiculous argument to start with, and I for one wish that it is never brought up again, even though it happens a couple of times a season.

Prime? Kobe.
Individual accolades? Kobe.
Offense? Kobe.
Defense? Arguable.
Team success? Kobe.
Highlights? Kobe.
Longevity? Kobe.
Dominance? Kobe.

That is all.

I actually think wade has had more highlight plays while playing half the amount of time. Mix makers have constantly say Dwayne wade is hardest to make a mix of due to the vast amount of selection.

All time, it's Kobe. Right now and since 08-09, it's been Wade.

Arguably since 2009-2010 season but not earlier than that. And i'm a Wade fan by the way.

Kobe > Wade
Wade had a slightly better 2011 season but nothing that significant.

Wade was better in 2010-2011, I'll give you that. But Kobe was definitely better in 08-09 and 09-10.

Thats just your opinion, I think Wade is by far the better playoff performer between the two and better on both sides of the floor.
Although he lacks Kobe's 3pt range he is a far better slasher and passer and has a higher BBIQ. He makes better decisions on the court.
His skillset and ability translates better against tough defenses and in the Finals.

The only think Kobe has over Wade is longevity at this point, if Wade has 4-5 Elite Seasons he will surpass Kobe on my ATList.

Wade is a better defender then Kobe ever was.
Wade has easily been better since 09

Wade : Post Season - PER
Peak : 29.4
Top 5 : 26.64
Top 7 : 24.5

----------------------------

Kobe : Post Season - PER
Peak : 26.8
Top 5 : 24
Top 7 : 23

Quote:
Number of seasons with DRTG lower then 105
Kobe = 5
Wade = 6

Number of seasons with 4+ Defensive WShares
Kobe = 5
Wade = 5

Total seasons played

Kobe = 15
Wade = 8

Career BPG//SPG
Kobe = .5 // 1.5
Wade = 1 // 1.7

Not to mention Wade regularly destroys the tough defensive teams (Detroit, Boston) that Kobe struggles against.

Not to mention Wade is a better Playoff and FAR better Finalz performer.

Kobe does nothing better then Wade except for 3PT Shooting.

Prime Wade > Prime Kobe


The Homers cant accept that Kobe is being surpassed by Wade but the average NBA Fan knows that Wade is the better player, he has proved it with his play.

Anyone who uses "highlights" as one of his criteria as to why one player is better than another player has already failed at any kind of argument he is trying to make.
