Kobe and Wade were brilliant shooting guards in the first decade of the 21st century. Now that Kobe has retired, Wade is also getting old.
But the feats are still there, and the legend will last forever. Needless to say, Kobe’s brilliance, Wade’s explosive power and European steps were unstoppable at the time. Both of them are excellent in honor and statistics. Kobe can be called
The second shooting guard in history, then Wade can compete for the third place. Of course, the first place belongs to that man, like a god.
The two have their own titles. Kobe is Peter Pan, Black Mamba, and Wade is The Flash. Let’s compare the pros and cons of the two heroes from all angles:
In the direct dialogue between the two, Kobe’s win-loss relationship is 9 wins and 11 losses behind, but in terms of statistics, Kobe averaged 26.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game, and Wade averaged 24.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 6.5 assists.
In these 20 matches, the three-pointers are not good, about 30%, but Kobe’s free throws are better: 87.2%-79.4%. The steals of Wade’s defensive statistics are 1.9 vs. 1.2. Of course, Wade’s steals and blocks are both.
The best shooting guard in history.
In terms of career statistics, Kobe played a total of 1346 games, averaging 25.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game. The three shooting percentages were 44.7%, 32.9% and 83.7%.
Item hit rates are 48.3%, 28.7%, and 76.7%.
In comparison, in terms of career statistics, Kobe has the upper hand. Since Kobe has retired and Wade is at the end of his career, Wade’s statistics will eventually decline. In this way, the comparison with Kobe’s statistics will be even worse.
In terms of record, Kobe led the Lakers to enter the playoffs 16 times. In the 96-97 to 11-12 seasons, Kobe only did not enter the playoffs in the 04-05 season. In the 12-13 season, Kobe did not play due to injury.
In the playoffs, Kobe fought back with his Achilles tendon in that round of the playoffs, and Kobe basically stayed on the sidelines due to injuries in his last years.
In these years, Kobe won the championship 5 times, the runner-up 2 times, the first round 3 times, the second round 5 times, and the Western Conference Finals 1 time.
Wade entered the playoffs with the Heat and the Bulls respectively. The Bulls had 1 year and the Heat had 12 years. Among them, Wade had 5 first rounds, 2 second rounds, 1 Eastern Conference finals, 2 overall runner-ups, and 3 championships
In terms of maintaining the competitiveness of the team, Kobe and Wade are both team heroes and key figures for the long-term prosperity of their respective teams.
In terms of honors, Kobe is very strong and comprehensive, with many honors on both offense and defense: MVP is a Grand Slam, 1 regular season MVP, 2 FMVPs, 4 All-Star MVPs, and 5 championships.
All-Star, 2 scoring champions, 12 All-Defensive Teams, 15 All-NBA Teams.
Wade is 1 FMVP, 1 All-Star MVP, 3 championships, 12 All-Stars, 1 scoring champion, 3 best defensive teams and 8 best teams.
In general, Wade already has a lot of honors, enough to enter the Hall of Fame, but Kobe has reached the point of discussing his historical status. Many media said that Kobe’s achievements belong to the top 10 in history. In this regard, Wade is still not as good as Kobe after all.
After a comprehensive comparison, we will find that compared with Wade at the end of his career, Kobe is better than Wade at the end of his career. Wade is slightly inferior but still very good. From this point of view, it is reasonable for the media to call Kobe the second tier
, and Wade still has time to improve himself.
