Dwyane Wade joins Rachel Nichols, Scottie Pippen and Tracy McGrady to discuss what D-Wade is learning about Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, and whether he would consider coming back. T-Mac then tells Wade that because he never got a chance to tell Kobe Bryant how much he appreciated playing against him, he wants to let Wade know how much he enjoyed competing against the former Miami Heat star. Finally (3:16) they play "What Were You Thinking" with Wade, discussing the time he broke O.J. Mayo's ankles, the time he dunked on Anderson Varejao, and the time he saw the "Banana Boat" photo.

Dwade great player but overated. People acted like he was so much better then pierce when pierce said he was better. Yall crazy paul pierce was so good mabe dwade is better but ur splitting hairs. Also dirk nlwitski has like 10 thousand more points then dwade but wade retirement was talked about more I just dont get it

I put Wade over Kobe actually. No disrespect to Kobe but he had a prime Shaq vs the Shaq that Wade had. LeBron o my stayed in Miami for 4 years and he cause them to lose the 2011 Championships. 2006 Wade was The next Jordan! I hate he got injured! He still ended up winning 2 more rings and going to 4 more Finals!

Kobe and Wade both had that real professional ultra competitive drive that only a few players have. Still can’t believe Kobe is no longer physically here but his legacy will live forever.

Wade was a great SG but if you want to prove yourself as one of the greats, you got to shoot FT well. I mean unless you're a big man, above 80% FT is a sign of standards that show you worked on your game to the limit. That's why I give less credit to Wade Lebron who didn't work on their game to the extreme enough to be called the greats like MJ and Kobe.

Also by having great focus and concentration at the line, that speaks for itself already on ability to having clutch performance.

Scottie is right on point. Dwade is the 3rd greatest SG ever, there was a time when he was better than Kobe but Kobes overall legacy is better. Peak Wade > Peak Kobe Prime Kobe > Prime Wade Career Kobe > Career Wade

I actually think Tmac was better than DWade in his prime. Tmac was the toughest Kobe went up against and he played against both in their primes. It’s a shame his career was cut down short due to injuries.

Is it crazy that kobes death still isnt making much sense to me (like it hasnt registered at all) ... i also think just in all the kobe awareness he feels so alive still that it kinda masks the reality of him being dead. Its crazy to me how that works

Sorry but d wade was not better than tracy , if it wasn't for tmac injuries tmac wouldn't be looked down on by u ppl or fans. He also didnt play with other superstars besides yao until injuries got yao also. The disrespect
Tom Bosson
Tom Bosson 3 months ago
Dwade had plenty of injuries too. Wade was just a better player. One of the best defending guards of all time and insanely clutch while being an elite and efficient scorer and passer. Combine that all with having won 3 championships, there is just no way that Tracy is better. Tmac is great but hes probably the 7th or 8th best SG of all time if that, where as Dwade solidified himself as number 3

It funny how we don't hear from the media anymore that LeBron played in the East and it was easy but he can't win the west. LeBron need to do more interview to defend himself

D Wade is my favorite player, ever. Other players have been better (maybe), but Wade was always class. The way T-Mac and Pippen, all-time greats, gave it up to him in this interview had me grinning.

Scottie Pippen, in my opinion, is the greatest of all time. He was great at every aspect of the game. He has the perfect body for the game and the athleticism to match it. Basketball elegance at its finest!!

Pippen scouting and trying to lure D. Wade out of retirement to the LAKE SHOW.......digging it, his shameless and sleek approach, lol. That was classic "Do you see some struggles out there and see how you can fill in"....playing up to his pride, how sleek Pip.

Tom Bosson If you really think Dwyane Wade was a better player than Kobe Bryant then you really don’t know anything about basketball
Tom Bosson
Tom Bosson 3 months ago
@RedRaptor_x7 first of all thats not true, Wade did make all defensive second team three times and those awards are bogus anyways, Kobe was an aggressive defender and because of his fame he got voted in, but if you actually look at defensive stats, Wade put up the better numbers
RedRaptor_x7 3 months ago
Tom Bosson Kobe made NBA all defense for 9 seasons out of 20 while Wade did NOT make a single one! So you are wrong when you say Wade was a little better defensively you are absolutely wrong there. Kobe was a killer on the court, Wade was not. Kobe has 5 nba championships Wade only has 3.
Tom Bosson

Peak Wade > Peak Kobe Career Kobe > Career Wade
Tom Bosson
Tom Bosson 3 months ago
@RedRaptor_x7 Kobe is really good but he wasnt better than Wade at his very best If you look at both players, these are their stats from their best 6 years from ages 24-29: Kobe from 2003-2008: 29.7 PPG , 45% FG , 6 Reb , 5.4 Asst , 1.7 Stl , 0.6 Blks Wade from 2006-2011: 27.0 PPG , 49%FG , 5.2Reb, 6.5 Asst, 1.9Stl, 1.1 Blks So obviously they are both really good players and Kobe was more of a scorer, but he was less efficient and he was a better rebounder but Wade was a better playmaker and passer. and then on defense both were great but Wade was a little better. In 2008 when they went to the olympics it was clear who was the best player on that olympic team, it was Wade not lebron, not Kobe not CP etc. Wade became the best player, but Kobe had a much better team and Kobe was still a really great player so he ended up winning back to back championships despite Wade outplaying him for those years.

Good man to admit he never told him cause I see a lot of nba players not getting along cause there jealous over money,girls and things when that is so petty.kobe was a competitive like all the greats and you have to compliment greatness nothing wrong with that like to black athletes love each other more you can be competitive and love.yes appreciate greatness.
