Good question...both were complete players and Wade will join Pippen in the top 50 greatest players of all time.
Offensively: Edge goes to Wade
Defensively: Edge goes to Pippen
Wade was at his peak couple of years back and hasn't been at his best since 2008-2009 season. He has his moments and stretches like last 1 month where he was playing at a very high level, but then he had a knee issue last week.
In Pippen's case - he was at his peak with Jordan. If I compare the best of both players, IMO Wade wins that. If the question is who is the better no.2 - then I've to go with Pippen...ONLY because injuries to both knees have slowed down Wade considerably.
