Hell no.

It's like the quickness and explosion of prime Wade. Combined witht he crafty, deceptive, skillful footwork of Kobe.

And of course by footwork of Kobe, I mean the skill set he patterned after MJ. Just using it as an analogy for all the ignorant, young bucks on ISH.

Nice find OP, added to the archive. Thanks.

People always mention that MJ's shots were 'uncontested' that he got easy dunks, that he didn't get double teamed.

Well….

There's a reason for that.

He beat dudes with ease even tho they played him for the drive comfortably away from him.

Double teams never really got there on time because he was too fast for them.

Jumpers appeared to be uncontested because he left his defenders on quick sand.

I've mentioned this story before and I'll repeat it again.

I knew this cat that played during the Space Jam games, and he said MJ was faster than 6'0 pg. He said he was blazing fast, everything he did was just fast. All his movements were a blur.

Wade is brought up in this thread.

Give MJ the same defensive schemes that Wade got during his prime, and it would be embarrassing for the league.

MJ borderline travelled on a lot of his first steps but that doesn't matter, he was still crazzzy fast.





But honestly, I thought Wade wasn't as quick/fast as MJ, and I even argued against Wade in the "Kobe vs. Wade Athleticism" thread, but after watching a lot of tape recently on young/rookie Wade, and having seen a lot of MJ tape and live, I concede that Wade is faster. Blasphemy I know, but I think young Wade was actually quicker than MJ. And I don't deny that MJ is the best NBA athlete of all-time. And Kobe is my favorite player of all-time. Someone made a "Rookie Wade Playoffs" video thread, and it was unbelievable how fast he was.

Wade appears to be faster due to the rules and how he's played.

Give Mj the same opposition and it's really over.

Perhaps that's it. You also rarely Wade explode off the triple threat position, he usually dribbles before he attacks, or he waits for a screen.

Huh? Why blasphemy? Only ignorant people would act surprised over considering Wade quicker than MJ. All you have to do is watch them play. Wade is the quickest SG of all time for players around that size.

I dunno, it seems to be the consensus here that MJ was the quickest/fastest 2 guard of all-time, aside from the little guys like Iverson, etc....

This is MJ in 97 with a screen and similar to the defense Wade dealt with:

http://youtu.be/jYdtk6FURS4?t=39s

It wasn't amazingly fast, but still fast. Now consider his age.

Again, at the 5:48 mark (ankle breaker) that move was lighting fast.


Look at how far the defender ends up http://youtu.be/vIvUmw4I2Bk?t=1m20s

Again, look at the space he's getting http://youtu.be/vIvUmw4I2Bk?t=2m37s the defense is waiting for the drive and they still can't react fast enough.

those are just a few for starters
