Props for the effort, Deuce. Sure, there are names in some places that scratch your head, but such a project takes a lot of time to take.

Let's revisit this in the future. 5 years later ?

you would honestly rather have wade on your team over Ewing, Pierce, Nash, Kidd, Mchale, Chris Webber, and others below him on this list...? This dude is full of excuses and is falling apart at 30 years old

Ewing ? I'm split with that, but I might take Ewing at the end of the day being the anchor of a defense and offense. It's close though.

Nash and Kidd ? Both are great point guards, but I'd take Wade over them, yes.

Pierce, McHale, and Webber ? Wade, easily.

And who are the "others" ? Even so, it's close or it's not vs Wade.

His career is far from either and he might be slowing down, but can still make a big impact in regular season games and has always been huge in the playoffs.

At his best, he was considered at the level of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, if not better than both. Great finals performer. Top 6 guard and Top 4 SG of all-time, IMO. Could more than make the case for Top 25 and I can see him above other players picked over him in this list, as well.

Yeah I'm so lost by saying I'd rather build a team around Patrick Ewing than Dwayne Wade

Wade at his best is probably a top 15 player or better. His downfall will be his longevity I'm afraid.

I see nothing wrong with Wade at 29 though.

Don't get me wrong wade is a HOFer and I'm not discrediting his skills/etc. but being top 30 ALL TIME basketball players is kind of ridiculous, I KNOW I'm not the only one who sees that as ridiculous
