Wade is the better player in his prime and overall. No offense to Iverson, who is a hall-of-famer.

He played with Eric Snow and Snow defended a lot of 2's so that was of no consequence.

He wasn't a great defender because he didn't want to be. There were times where he looked like one tho.

I think Wade is better career-wise and peak-wise. None of this "easily" crap, though.

there is very little argument for iverson as a player, career and peak.

as a teammate, its isnt even close. wade is a much easier teammate to play with because he takes high percentage shots, plays within the system and moves the ball. iverson is historically regarded as one of the biggest chucker in NBA history. he won a scoring title shooting under 40% for christs sake.

If I was a GM and I wanted to start a team and I had to pick between D-Wade or Iverson, I would pick Wade. Mainly because of the versatility that he brings to the table. Iverson is a great player but limited. Wade is that swish army knife and I would want to build around a player like that.

Iverson easy. Theres no way prime Wade would have been able to take the team that Iverson took to the Finals.

iverson went to the finals (alone) beating reggie millers pacers, ray allens bucks, and vince carters raptors, and had to face kobe/shaq in the finals...

wade had shaq on his team and had to beat the bulls who had no real star, the nets who had kidd/carter, and the superstarless pistons, to beat dirks mavs.


iverson had it much harder, wade was gifted his ring honestly. so many bad calls, against weak weak teams.

that being said, i think wades career is still better than iverson, but prime vs prime, iverson is the better player.

I don't really know. This is a hard one to decide. Going with Iverson since he was one of my favourite players growing up and destroyed the Raptors in the playoffs.

But the second part of Poll ? was f you were a GM and had to pick btween the two to lead your team, were taking Wade or Iveron? And Iverson had 6th man and DPOY on that Finals team. Had help also...
