His relationship with Bron is very special. Both the stars are given example of perfect team bonding. They are portrayed as best buddies. Despite this Wade feels, MJ is a better player. He said, “I come from the Jordan era, so I’m biased,” he said. “Michael Jordan will always be my GOAT… I played basketball because of Michael Jordan… All of us have our own individual opinions… LeBron is going to be the GOAT for a lot of generations… [Jordan] will be my GOAT… I made it out of the hood because I see a dude, number 23 play the game of basketball at a level where I was like I want to do some of that.”
Wade said that LeBron has a complete different game than Jordan. “LeBron is one of my good friends, I have so much respect for what he’s doing now, what he’s done, and what he will eventually do… It will definitely be an argument that needs to be had. If LeBron ends up the number scorer of all-time, top five in assists and top five rebounds, with four, five, or six championships, you cannot do nothing but have the conversation of who is the GOAT,” said Wade.
Regardless of the fans’ views, both the individuals have significantly contributed to the game. The debate stays intact.
