Unless you consider T-Mac's prime to be in Toronto...Wade at his peak was most certainly a better shot-blocker and overall defender then McGrady at his peak.

I'd take peak Wade, a better player overall, close in offense but way better in defense compared to peak TMac.

You can check the stats for it now actually.

Wade in 2008-09:

10 to 15 ft- 44% FG

80 FG with 182 FGA

16 ft to 3-pt- 41.9% FG

255FG with 609 FGA

http://www.basketball-reference.com/...shooting/2009/


T-Mac in 2002-03:

10 to 15 ft- 41.7% FG

78 FG with 187 FGA

16 ft to 3-pt- 43.6 % FG

282 FG with 647 FGA

http://www.basketball-reference.com/...shooting/2003/

As the stats show, peak Wade was close to T-Mac. Virtually equal. It just that Wade was a better finisher and T-Mac was the better 3pt and FT shooter.

But you can defend players better back then than now, so that accounts for something too. Probably driving to the basket. Still doesn't change the fact that Wade was a killer with his midrange j though.

When he came back from injury wade reached a peak where every aspect of his game came together and he was an absolute beast at everything - amazing scorer, defender, playmaker, was grabbing clutch rebounds, everything. Tmac had his moment and had his advantages too but he was never as complete. Mac = better shooter, wade = more efficient scorer, much better help defender

Peak Dwyane Wade because I trust him more in a playoff series. See 2006.

I hope T-Mac's name continues to be brought up for many years to come.

What a magical and mystical player he was. May his mysterious and intriguing legacy endureth.

The Mythical, Mystical, and Magical...Tracy "T-Mac" McGrady.

He'd wet your tongue, but never give you the full glass.

It's extremely close. Wade's D and clutch play gives him the edge for me.

I'm baffled this was even asked. Wade is the clear answer. The guy had a greater will to win than McGrady ever had. If McGrady had a killer instinct, we'd be talking Hall of Fame here and a different answer to the question.

Did Dwyane Wade ever carry a weak squad past the 1st round by himself?
