Wade. People throw around "well if Pippen had been the man in his prime blah blah blah" like that means anything. Wade actually did it. FMVP and at his peak was a fvcking monster on both ends (way higher than Pippen peaked). Pippen may have been more well rounded in some ways, but youre crazy if you want prime Pippen as your teams star over prime DWade.

We're talking about the GOAT perimeter defender here vs the GOAT, what, petulant crybaby and backchatter?

Anyway, to make a serious point, basketball is a game of two halves, in more ways than one. Defense is worth as much as offense in championships runs, and no perimeter defender could do it all (man, help, versatility and leadership) like Pippen.

You can come up with migraines (which is worth how much of his overall career?), but Pippen was a dominant defender for 6 championship runs and carried his team in 94, one win away from the ECF after a bogus call for the Knicks (who lost to the Rockets in 7). Pippen led that team in points, rebounds, assists AND defense. And took them close without MJ, even racking up a 55 win regular season.

Playing with the GOAT doesn't demean Pip's accomplishments. He is one of the 20 greatest players of all time.

Wade was a great defender in his hey day, but the gap between defense is larger than the gap in offense between the two, if we take into account the totality of the game.

With the logic some of you are using, Billups might as well as be considered greater than Pippen. My word that one time he led his team to victory sure outweighs Pippen's career.

Lead his team to a championship. Just like Wade, unlike Pippen.

Wade is clearly the better player, and I like Pip a lot. It's funny how people can't divorce their biases from reality. Pip could never put do what Wade did in that Finals series. He just couldn't. Not to mention the ridiculous seasons Wade's had that filled it up in scoring, rebounding, assists, steals, blocks. Just stop. Pip is obviously and all time great, but Wade is the superior.

This invalidates everything you just wrote.

Wade is the better player. Wade can carry a team to the championship (2006) while Pippen couldn't, and that is that. Even if Pippen is the GOAT perimeter defender... it just means he's better suited for a Robin role.

Hell, put them both in their primes in the same team, Wade would play the Jordan role and Pippen would be Pippen. That's all you need to know.

Prime Wade is EASILY the more impactful and better player. Much closer to a guy like Jordan/Lebron than a guy like Pippen.

Pippen's best few years ('93-'95) may be better than Wade's last couple of seasons, though, and his first couple of seasons. But '06-'10 Wade was on a different level. Even in '11, really, as he showed in the Finals vs. Dallas, where he was insane.

Lead, plays defense just as great, rebounds about the same, puts fear into the heart of the opposing team...

Want me to go on? Don't bring MJ into this, kid. You'll get embarrassed, so stay on topic.
