Who's the better OVERALL player. Meaning if you were a GM and it came down to having to choose between the two to start franchise, who would you pick.
Again better OVERALL player.......thanks for any replies.
The main proven flaw with Iverson was that he was played at 2 but couldn't defend twos for much of his career, especially under Larry Brown. Wade didn't have that flaw and for that reason I'd take Wade. But the gap that flaw creates is small and people should have more respect for what AI did at his peak.
It is easier to play with Shaq on your team than on the opponents team though. I'm not arguing with your selection, but if the ring is the factor that is being looked at, then you have to consider the team the player was on and the teams they faced.
