NBA News: Dwyane Wade Says Kobe Is Greatest Player In His Era

kobe-wadeDwyane Wade has been playing with LeBron James for two and a half seasons now, and has been to the NBA Finals two years in a row with James. This season, LeBron is having one of the most impressive seasons in NBA history, and looks to be well on his way to his fourth Most Valuable Player award.

But at All-Star media day, Wade said it was Kobe Bryant, not James, who is the greatest player of his era.

“When you look back at this era there’s going to be a lot of players that you can pick from. You can talk about their greatness. This is a good era for basketball, and it would be led by Kobe Bryant – who was the greatest player in our era.”

This comes on the heels of Michael Jordan’s comments that he would take Kobe over LeBron because of Bryant’s five championships. While Wade certainly didn’t mean any disrespect to James, it’s a sign of admiration for Bryant’s accomplishments that he would indicate Kobe as the generation’s greatest talent.

Wade will face off with Bryant once again in the All-Star game on Sunday.
