Exactly. Pippen couldn't carry a team offensively like Wade could. That's what separates them.

I don't care if he could guard 4 positions. You can't play that type of defense when you have to lead a team on your own.

It shouldnt be. I said Pippen, IN HIS PRIME, was better than Wade.

33 was not in Pippen's prime.

First, when Wade actually led a team on his own they were picking top 5 in the lottery the next year.

2nd, do we actually have to go through a list of dominant scorers who also played great defense. There are plenty.

Question; do you think Pippen guarded 4 positions without MJ next to him? Do you think he was able to put forth the same effort defensively while trying to carry the team offensively?

I'm shocked to see that people think a fading Wade is better than a prime Pippen.

A fading wade...lol. He's averaging 22ppg on 52% shooting. Did Pippen EVER do that?

Ha... Fading

Not to mention he has Lebron James and Chris Bosh on his team. He would obviously score more if that weren't the case.

Ok but what has Wade done without Shaq or Bron???

Look I like wade his game is SIC but he is not even at pippens level when it comes to a defender.

Thats the point. He had one year to try, in his prime, IN HIS PRIME, and he did it.

Both of these guys are great great players. Give me Pippen though, thats all. No minds will be changed here, obviously.

Plus get back to me when Wade plays after getting golf ball implants:



BOOM! Case closed!

Wade guarding the sg position isn't that far off from Pippen guarding the SF position. Yeah, Pippen could guard everyone, but the Heat don't even need Wade to do that. And honestly, do you really think Pippen is on Wade's level offensively?

He is closer to wades offense than wade is to pippens D. Pippen could light it up, yet he didn't have to. Wade MUST light it up for any team he is on to win.

26 yr old Pippen >>> 31 yr old Wade

As far as being a Robin to an All Star (Batman)
Pippen > Wade

If I had to start a team around one
Wade >>> Pippen

Better overall player
Wade > Pippen

PJ, i dont care how good of a defender he was.

Wade isnt a slouch himself. Prob one of the top 2 best help side defenders in the league himself. He's made all defense teams.


The thing is, the offensive comparions arent even close.


DWades top 5 PER seasons

30.4
28.9
28.0
27.6
25.6



Pippens top 5 PER seasons

23.2
22.6
21.5
21.3
21.0



Are you at least smart enough to realize that is not even on the same planet?

This means NOTHING............ I don't care how many PPG Pippen had. HE IS THE BETTER overall player.

Well to be fair. Since I have seen both play IN THEIR PRIMES.....You are the one that doesn't look very smart here.

Yeah, Pippen only had that Jordan fella..... and the fact that Wade carried that Heat team to an NBA title with Shaq on it instead of Shaq carrying it says a hell of a lot.
