Hamtaro CP3KDKG is starting to rub some people the wrong way
Default Can people stop comparing Wade to Kobe?

Seriously im not a fan of either player but kobe is so much better than him dumb to compare them. Wade is 31 and barely look like top 20 player kobe at 31 was winning fmvps was easily top 3 at worst, rewriting the history for career losers like pau and bringing gold to one of the most prestigious franchises ever in sports.
yknow why? because kobe has fundamentals hes so so so skilled its amazing wade in the playoffs can only score from offball cuts or alleys or transition getting assisted on everything kobe was the best one on one scorer was a better passer and can lock u down. Wade defense always overrated b/c he blocks shots but the comparisons embarassing. Please stop with the comparisons its not close it was always kobe and always will be

When Wade is HEalthy he is every bit as good as Kobe but Problem is Kobe is able to Play better/more consistent through Nagging injuries than Wade.

Wade, at his peak (say 2006 or 2009) was playing the game significantly better than kobe ever has. That said, Kobe has had a much better career. And Kobe was not winning fmvps easily at 31. He wasn't the best player in the finals on at least one of those two rings (Gasol was clearly better in 2010, and probably in 2009 too).

I agree.

Wade is not a dry snitch, or a rapist. And his mother doesn't hate him. I don't see any comparison between the two.

that's only because kobe shamelessly exaggerates his nagging injuries to the media to make himself look more heroic.

kobe the ultimate cornball.

Career wise, it's pointless, Kobe is head and shoulders above Wade now and probably always will be. Comparing which player is actually better at the game has been very debatable since 09, and in my opinion, Wade's been better than him since then up until this season. However as for who's better right now? I'll take the player whos Achilles isn't torn.

Kobe is better. You will never see Kobe having a lackluster season like the one Wade is having. Kobe's post game is right up there with Wade's, and his perimeter shooting is way better.

Wade has destroyed Kobe in H2H and efficiency this season and that says it all. Plus Wade plays great defense so its not really a discussion. If you want a man next to the best you go with Wade over Kobe 9.9/10

Wade as the #1 option is = to Kobe on offense, while shooting a higher % from the floor but Kobe is not even 1/10th the defender Wade is.
At least not anymore.
