    YOU said every GM would take Kobe over Wade. So you are the one who has to show proof of that.

    We're talking about who is the better player throughout their careers, not who has more Finals wins. That's a cop out answer.

    Yep, me and 95% of non Heat fans ALL failed "your test".

    And Wade doesn't appear to be aging like fine wine, so he will never catch Kobe.

    If you step back from ESPN, you realize that Wade is the better SG (at least by the numbers).

    As for Kobe the "winnner guy," his career playoff averages are:

    25.6 PPG
    44.8 FG%
    4.7 APG
    5.1 RPG
    1.4 SPG
    0.6 BPG

    As for Wade in the playoffs:

    25.2 PPG
    47.8 FG%
    5.3 APG
    5.6 RPG
    1.6 SPG
    1.1 BPG

    I'll take Wade in the playoffs. He averages higher than Kobe in every category other than PPG (but Wade scores more efficiently).


    As for regular season averages:

    Kobe's career stats,

    25.5 PPG
    45.4 FG%
    4.7 APG
    5.3 RPG
    1.5 SPG
    0.5 BPG

    Wade's careers stats,

    24.9 PPG
    48.7 FG%
    6.1 APG
    5.0 RPG
    1.8 SPG
    1.0 BPG

    I'll take Wade here too. His PPG and rebounds are less, but he does everything else better. He also scores more efficiently.

    Looking at that, Kobe's assist numbers aren't that bad.

    95%? made up stat alert.

    Yep..he is aging so badly that he is having a career year this year.

    Is your cable out? watch some games.

    BTW..Wade vs. Kobe in the 4th yesterday? 6-7 for 16 pts. and 3 stls.

    you don't deal with facts well.

    it is MY Opinion...that Wade will eventually catch Kobe for his career achievement.

    But it is not an opinion to say that Wade has been better than Kobe for a while. That is just fact. Only hero ball fan boys and Kobe "stans" disagree.

    heh.

    Chris Bosh went 13-16 for 32 points, 11 Rebounds, while doing battle with Lamarcus Aldridge..and nobody cares.....LOL.

    Must be some other dude doing something.

    Of course they would. We have a nice piece of metal with diamonds on it because of him.

    Without Bosh..the Heat is a crap shoot and a slight favorite to get out of the east. With him they are WHAT THEY ARE. Destroyers of Worlds.

    I am SO ready for the playoffs, and full games of defensive effort instead of spurts. Our offense is ridiculous.

    That Offensive performance last night, most efficient in Heat franchise History. a 137.8 Eff. Rating. Would rank in the top 10 all-time (NBA) as well.

    This run has been fun but I am tempering my expectations for after the all star game. I've noticed that the last two years running we go into the All Star game on full flying death machine mode, but after the all star game it seems like we realize there is still the better part of half a regular season left before the meaningful games and go back to playing largely disinterested lethargic ball until near the playoffs. Sure to form this year we are killing it right now so I wouldn't be surprised for the narrative to be the premature death of the Heat again in March.

    A couple of tidbits I found from a few various sites mostly Knicks related....
    - NYK monitoring JJ Redick situation. Hes a bit nicked up but Knicks like him.
    - Wolves reportedly engaged in trade talks with 2 teams. 1 of those teams is reportedly the Knicks. Nothing imminent but names being discussed reportedly are Ridnour/Budinger and Novak/Brewer.
    - Jared Dudley will not be a Knick if it means Iman Shumpert has to be deal. Woodson and Melo have spoken out publicly against trading Shumpert. Plus Woodson's daughters know Iman and went to Georgia Tech with him. Personally id consider it if Phoenix really is willing to move an unprotected pick.
    - Heat pulled out of Greg Oden mix. Cavs appear ready to offer a 2 year deal once Oden is ready to return next season. Theyre considered the favorites.
    - Leandro Barbosa tore his ACL last night. Celtics may simply cut him since hes on a 1 year deal to free up a roster spot.
    - Nets want either Paul Milsap or Josh Smith. probably dont have the chips to get either 1 since I cant see either team taking Kris Humpheries, Marshon Brooks and a 1st thats probably going to be in the 18-24 range.
    - Mavs want Brandon Jennings and Bucks may be open to trading him. Mavs ARE NOT after Josh Smith.
    - Shawn Marion said that if hes traded to a bad team he will not go. Personally I think he makes a lot of sense for NYK but thats just imo.

    The Nets have been coveting everyone for Humphries lately. I'm wondering if the attraction is more about shedding Humphries salary than the actual acquisitions.

    I think the only teams interested in acquiring Humpheries will be teams with an interest in reading how Kris and Kim are still married and yet Kim is having Kanye's baby. Hmmmm...

    I agree. Which is why I think every day brings news of a new player on a new team that the Nets are trying to trade him for lol.

    That would be helluva flip if BK to pull it off. I'm sure Millsap plays about 10-12 more minutes a game than Kris Humpries, but sheeet, the stats speak for themselves.
    Question is, would they have room on the floor for him?


    I'm getting carried away...this ain't happening lol.

    No chance. They play no defense aside from batum and Matthews. Lilliard will eventually be a great one though. That team needs a real anchor
    In the middle. Theyd probably be about a 6-7 seed right now
