Hyperbole and false logic just makes no sense to me. You know, if Wade was guarded by guys in the 80s, he'd likely damn well average 50 and 10 a game because he'd be about 10000x more athletic than the guys back then. And I have a hard time believing "power forwards" back then would stand a chance against Dirk, but people love to mention these past eras as if it has any legitimacy

If Bird was around in todays game the league wouldnt have changed the damn rules or became as strict so can it. And IF we play the game where they did for fun? Bird wouldnt get treated the way you THINK he would. In fact you and others probably would be saying Stern wants Bird to succeed, its a conspiracy, double standards, not fair, refs are paid off etc etc but Bird being the exception to the rule. Got it?

Carry on

Maybe nobody can "stop" him, but the Bulls come pretty close to it.

They did such a good job he broke their back in every 4th quarter when it truly mattered.

That ain't changing anytime soon.

Captain Kirk may not be the Wade stopper but he is the Wade slower-downer.
And the only one in the leauge apparently.

Ager must be awesome if people think he's going to be Wade stopper. It's hard enought to defend Wade in basketball shoes on the court without trying to do it in a suit sitting behind the bench! Is he some kind of hypnotist or something?

Don't worry, Pistons will win the rubber match and you won't see him in the playoffs.
