    Isiah Thomas vs Dwyane Wade - Higher on the all time list?

    Who do you have higher on the all time list between Isiah Thomas and Dwyane Wade and why?

    On the PSD list Wade was 26th and Isiah was 29th.

    Both guys led franchises to title/s that had never won before. Both won finals mvp for franchises that never won before as well. Both were always considered superstars.

    Wade.

    Much better scorer and defender.
    Similar talent as a play-maker / creator.

    I frustratingly agree with this.

    Over time, Zeke is going to become one of the most underrated players of all-time. His numbers won't blow people away. His shootings stats will leave you desiring more. And his off the court career with the CBA/Knicks/Sexual Harassment charges will diminish his legacy.

    You want to research some history...Go look up Isiah Thomas in Game 3 of the 1988 NBA Finals.

    There's something to be said about being a repeat champion. Hell, it could have potentially been a 3-peat for Detroit. They were up 3-2 against LA in the '88 Finals. Game 6 on an effed up ankle, dropped 45 @ LA.

    Isaiah for me.

    So much respect for this post.

    Real talk: Were you honestly going to post about the 88 Finals or did you see my post first?

    Game 6 of the 1988 Finals probably defines his legacy the most. He was tremendous and absolutely willed his team to the win. It was phenomenal.

    Wade has had equally impressive games, and has easily been the better playoff performer overall. Even last year's "bad effort" stacks up to anything Zeke did besides maybe 88 and 90 (even those are close).
    I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.

    Love y'all!

    Except for all of y'all.

    So did Isiah. And so did every star player. It is a matter how you win though.

    Yeah but the pistons built a team. Stayed together for years and turned into greatness.

    True. But those are exceptions to the rule and not the norm, just like the 2004 Pistons are the exception to the "You have to have a superstar to win a title" rule.

    Agreed. I just always like to point out how awesome Dirk was

    If that is the case then not MJ either as he was the only allstar twice on his team.

    Pretty sure Pippen was always an All-Star level player when MJ won his titles irregardless if he made the popularity game or not.
