Well Wade and Bron have made it to the finals twice and have won once while Kobe and Dwight have yet to do either as its their first season. Will have to compare after the season.

This is basically saying Lebron vs Dwight because both Kobe and Wade will both be a very poor man's OJ Mayo and Eric Gordon in 2 years.

I pick Lebron.

yea because the next 2-3 years of lebron/howards primes are worth throwing away


and when you consider howard is nearly on lebrons level of value. and kobe bryant is still considered the leader/best player so far ( while wade is declining faster than the price is right mountain guy after falling off the edge ) ... you'd think a kobe/dwight combo would be the new #1 duo replacing lebron/wade

but thats just my opinion

Disagree with the part about Kobe. He still has another two good years left although he's on the decline. A declined Kobe is still the best SG in the league. Save the reasoning and arguments. I'm just going to say numbers don't lie.

For this year? I'd take Kobe and Dwight, even though Wade/LeBron is a more talented combo. Big men win titles in the NBA, and Dwight's the best there is in the NBA.

For 5 years from now, or even two years from now you have to take LeBron and Wade because Kobe might be retired...

5 years from now wade will be 35-36 years old...

he doesnt have the same longevity kobe has. so kobe/wade might retire the same year

In 5 years Kobe would be 39/40 years old... Since he said he'd likely retire after his current contract then LeBron/Wade is guaranteed to be better in 5 years than Dwight/Kobe, even if both Wade, and Kobe retire because LeBron is an incredible amount better at basketball than Howard.

Like I said this year I go with Kobe/Dwight. Long term you go with the best player in the NBA.

I'd go with the classic inside/outside combo of Kobe and Dwight, I think over the long-term they'll complement each other better. Lebron-Wade, despite their championship success, have similar strengths and weaknesses which makes them redundant to some extent( and Wade has to scale down his game in order to accommodate Lebron, while Dwight seems as though he can still provide his usual production playing alongside Kobe).

I'd do Kobe/Gasol any day. Their chemistry is what's powering the Lakers to wins, not Dwight/Kobe. It's kobe/gasol high-post pick'n'roll and then Gasol pinch-post pass to a spoon-fed Dwight, not the other way around.

Lebron and whatever superstar. I take any combo that involves Lebron at this point because he's playing at such a special level right now.

Also when Lebron and Wade joined together they were best player and 2nd best in the league.

With Dwight at 100%? I'd pick Kobe and Dwight. Kobe can handle the ball and shoot much better than Wade. Lebron however, is pretty special with his size and speed. Still, with Dwight at 100% it's hard notto take him, especially with Kobe, you know?

Depends on who else is in the team

But Lebron is the best player.....
