Wade spoke to ESPNChicago.com during a promotional event for his Wade’s World Foundation and expressed how he felt about the Lebron James and Michael Jordan comparison. Wade stated
“I don’t know if (James) has the ability to surpass (Jordan) or not, That’s yet to be seen. My version as LeBron being on par with Michael is this: They’re both on the golf course. Michael’s on the 18th hole. LeBron is somewhere on like the fourth hole. He’s got a long way to go, but he’s on par to get to the 18th hole.
“I think everyone knows that (James) is a phenomenal, phenomenal player. He’s one that we haven’t seen, with the makeup of a 6-8 guy who runs as fast as any point guard, jumps as high as any center, and has the ability that he has to do so many things. But Michael Jordan is the greatest player of all time, that’s who everyone shoots for. So it’s going to be hard to surpass that.”
I honestly don’t think that the two can be compared. They have two different styles of playing. I never really understood why they ever compared lebron to Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan. I feel Lebron is in the road to become a legend in his OWN light. That’s just my opinion tell me what you guys think!
