Rob: One season - the next season - of ball? I'm taking D-Wade. I think Wade's next season in the NBA will be the best of his career and the one that defines it. I think Kobe is going to see a drop off in his production after 15 years in the NBA. I'm not saying that Kobe is done. I think he will still be one of the elite players in the league, but for my one 'glory or bust' year it's Wade.
Don: Now? For one season only? I go Kobe. Sure, D-Wade's younger but Kobe's got the points on the boards. It's - overall - a bit of a wash on offense and Kobe's a better defender (no, taking lots of chances in the lanes does not equate to "good defense"), and is more durable. Better leadership qualities too.
The consensus over at Hoops Manifesto was Kobe (click the link to read why)...

Wade any day... I just did a comparison ine for line and Wade hs better all around stats than the Mamba! I still have yet to see Kobe step up and take over a playoff series the way we have seen D-Wade do!! Didn't Kobe and his team get swept in the playoffs last year?? Where was the Black Mamba during those 4 games against Dallas?? Compare the career stats for both players and you'll see who has the Edge!! Kobe is a post season choke artist!!
Heheh. I think it's awesome that you started watching basketball last season. Welcome to the NBA.
I'd choose Kobe over Wade anyday. Wade is far overrated. He led his Heat through medocre seasons. The only reason he has that championship ring is because his treammate was Shaquille O' Neal. Kobe did not go and search out other superstars to contend for a championship. Save for the acquisition of Pau Gasol, his Laker team remained the same. Kobe is a far better leader and Wade throughout his career has always been more flash than substance.
