Not sure why you won't touch the T-Mac comment. I think comparing him to Wade is highly justified. When he was in his prime duke was scary good. For a stretch of about 6 years there he was probably 1 of the top 2 or 3 players in the NBA easily. The numbers he put up during those years are crazy. I think his averages from '00 - 07 were something like 27 / 6 / 6. Those are better #'s than Wade's averaged over his NBA career. & Remember also that T-Mac & Kobe both came straight out of HS as 18 yo kids & never had the benefit of maturing & playing college ball like Wade did at Marquette. For that reason I don't even count the first few years of T-Mac or Kobe's careers when they were just starting to learn the game & growing into their own bodies.
