Dwyane Wade is yet again sticking with his usual pick of Michael Jordan over his friend LeBron James in the GOAT debate.
D-Wade is considered the 3rd greatest shooting guard of all time, and with good reason. When he was a youngster, D-Wade terrorized the league with his speed, change of direction and hops.
Wade truly had it all, and he always gave it his all on the hardwood. Nobody who watched will ever forget his performance for the ages in the 2006 NBA Finals. Wade put the Heat on his back like few other superstars ever have.
Thus, few players are better qualified to comment on the GOAT debate, and D-Wade didn’t hold back today.
Dwyane Wade will always regard Michael Jordan as his GOAT over LeBron James
When asked about his take on the GOAT debate, Wade took care to make the case for LeBron first:
“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.”
But obviously, when it came to picking sides, D-Wade went with the player whom he idolized as a kid:
“I come from the Jordan era, so I’m biased. Michael Jordan will always be my GOAT… I played basketball because of Michael Jordan… All of us have our own individual opinion.”

“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’ve seen a dude, number 23 play the game of basketball at a level where I was like I want to do some of that.”
