I suppose anything is possible as long as Wade is playing...but he'd have to dominate over the next two years, not just win rings in Horry mode to catch Kobe. I'm not his doctor, but if Wade looks anything like he did last year...yes, even during his good runs... I think Kobe's status above him is safe as the #2 SG of all time.
