But he is nowhere near the same guy for steals, blocked shots, rebounds and passing that Lebron is
LOL, yes he is.
Wade...26.2 PPG, 5.0 APG, 7.6 RPG, 1.7 SPG, 1.3 BPG
James..26.1 PPG, 4.9 APG, 9.4 RPG, 1.3 SPG, 1.3 BPG
Look at the regular season over time. Lebron is better. Playoffs is a small sample size so far. I know Wade is great. That's obvious.
BTW Lebron had the last 10 points on a 16 - 0 run. So I'd call that "finishing" and closing out the Celtics...
LeBron has better numbers in scoring, rebounding, and assists, while Wade's better in the steals and shot blocking categories over the course of their regular season careers...and they were virtually identical in assists before Wade gave LeBron the PG role for much of the season in Miami.
LeBron's also gotten more minutes than Wade has. When adjusted for that, the only category where LeBron has a discernable advantage is in the rebounding department.
You said Wade is "nowhere near" LeBron in those categories, and that's simply untrue. Ultimately the regular season is pretty meaningless and this was Miami's first test. LeBron deserves props too, but let's not act like he carried this team to victory here. He wasn't even the best player on his team in this series.
James..26.7 PPG, 7.0 APG, 7.5 RPG, 1.57 SPG, .63 BPG
Wade...25.5 PPG, 4.6 APG, 6.4 RPG, 1.46 SPG, 1.14 BPG
Lebron clearly better on a larger sample size over time
How you simply ignore that he scored the last 10 points on a 16 - 0 run to close out the celtics is amazing. It shows your biased hate towards Lebron. Rediculous.
The sample size that I was referring to was even larger than the one that you are...and I hate to break it to you...but what LeBron & Wade did in some game in January has absolutely nothing to do with the playoffs. Who the hell cares about "larger sample sizes" in a playoff series? It's not like what LeBron did against Sacramento in January has anything to do with anything.
I did recognize LeBron a couple of pages back. He had a great close to the game. Wade dominated the entire game, and was the best player on the court in 4 out of 5 games. So I chuckled when I saw all of the love being heaped on LeBron with NO mention of Wade at all.
You said that Wade is "nowhere near" LeBron in the categories of rebounding, assists, steals, & blocks. It's provably untrue over the course of each of their careers, especially when accounting for minutes played. There isn't a single category where Wade is "nowhere near" LeBron.
Again Lebron scoring the final 10 points on a 16 - 0 run to close out the Celtics. What of it? You say he can't play good in the 4th quarter. He can't play good in the clutch...
What the hell are you talking about.
Keep ignoring it. That's what you usually do when facts don't fit your argument...
