Really, was that when he carried them in the 4th quarter of Games 1 and 3?

Of course, you're right, he did go, 0 -2 in the last 7 minutes of Game 2. But, then LeBron went 0 -4. And considering Wade had 36 before that, maybe he should have been the one taking more shots in the fourth quarter.

Then there was his 8 pt. 4th quarter in Game 4, which wasn't good enough for the win. Of course, LeBron had a 2 pt 4th quarter, and an 8 game.

And oh, Game 5, Wade, who got hurt in the first quarter and NEEDED LeBron to take over,still managed 6 pts in the 4th and 23 for the game. LeBron had 17.

Get off the board.

Dirk's overall % was low because he shot like 4-18 or whatever in that Game 4 where he has sinusitis and a 102F temperature.

Bottom line was every 4th Wade was shit whereas Dirk was godlike. Thats why one guy won and the other lost despite having the far superior supporting cast

Games, 1, 3 and 4, for reference:

Don't ever try to bring that shit again.

ETA: The answer is Wade. LeBron/ Wade were #1/2 in the season and #2/#1 in the playoffs. But, LeBron was so bad in the Finals, that it tips to Wade.

Dirk has an argument on offense, but he gives too much back on defense

2003 (after #1), 2005-2007, 2009-2011 (after #1), is so close it's unfair... Should be done in tiers with multiple players on a damn near equal level.

You can reasonably present an argument for 3-4 guys.
