“When you look back at this era there’s going to be a lot of players that you can pick from. You can talk about their greatness. This is a good era for basketball, and it would be led by Kobe Bryant – who was the greatest player in our era.” - Dwyane Wade
I've always liked DWade.
Seriously for me this quote blows me away for 2 reasons.
1. I've always assumed DWade didn't like Kobe from when Shaq came to the Heat and brought his stories and prejudice. And then the heated battles they always have and the chippiness between them. (ALTHOUGH I wonder what it was that he said in Kobes's ear after he brought him back in close following the first post game good byes) after Miami whipped us on Sunday 2/10) (I'd like to think he was actually recognizing what Kobe was going through having to play with a Diva again [?])
2. Wow. What is his definition of "this era
" being that LeBron, his teammate, has been around for quite
a while now???? HA!! I've always liked DWade! NOT!!! Wow!!!
