It is safe to say Michael Jordan, Kobe Brynant, and Lebron James are usually at the center of the conversation when it comes to basketball comparisons. It is no doubt that Michael Jordan easily takes the crown as the greatest basketball player of all time in many people’s opinions, and Dwyane Wade doesn’t think Lebron James will surpass Jordan’s legacy either.
“No, it’s not possible,” D. Wade said about his close friend as he laughed with ESPN. “It’s not possible.”
“The only thing you can do is tie it.” He added, “Theres no 19th hole.”
D. Wade is adamant that Jordan’s legacy is ‘as great as it gets’ and that it cannot be touched.
“You can’t go passed it,” he said. “How can you? That’s as great as it gets, man. The only thing you can do, like I said, is be A-1, A-B.’ There’s no way higher.
During his 1st retirement, MJ turned 31.
LeBron James is currently 31.

Although Dwyane Wade doesn’t believe King James can’t pass up the living legend Michael Jordan, he does think the basketball player is on his way up there.
“I think last year, not only in my eyes, but in a lot of people’s eyes–really put him–he’s on the 15th hole right now..And he’s on his way, for sure.”
Welp, shout out to friends like D. Wade who keep it real with their homies! What do you think? Can Lebron surpass MJ’s legacy? Let’s chat!
