wades been injured...everyones forgetting that when wade came to the league, the heat won the title. pierce needed allen and garnett. pierce is very good, wade is just faster and getting better

wade is a much better player. just because pierce got hot and played out of his #ss the entire playoffs doesnt make him better. wade is an elite player and peirce is not. hands down

Wade3
07-05-2008, 10:54 PM
Its Wade because look at the way they each won there titles Boston had Allen Pierce and Garnett. Miami had just Wade and Shaq and Shaq doesn't play like he does in the finals anymore before his finals points average was like 25 point I know Shaq didn't average that for the Heat in the finals

Pierce can shoot better, plays better d, drives just as good and is bigger..Wade is just faster and quicker with better ball handling skills....dont think pierce is the best player in the league or anything but def better than wade

Pierce or Wade....


Pierce arguably isn't even the best player on his team since KG is there...

When healthy, Wade...

Wade/Lebron/Kobe...they're in the same catagory

Pierce is great, but just below.

Maybe a Pierce or McGrady Poll'd be more appropo

both pierce and wade went nuts in the finals and the playoffs for that matter....But dallas couldnt contain shaq....there was no answers...plus the heat had more role players (posey, toine, j-will,haslem,kapono, blount, and ricky davis

Boston had the better team KG,Allen,Posey,Rondo,Powe,Pierce,Eddie House. Please the only person Wade had was Shaq and he didnt do crap in that series. And by the Way Kapono didnt play for us that season. He was a Bench warmer. Wow and we didnt even have blount or Ricky that season just sit back and shut up and dont post anymore you idiot. Look up you crap before posting dumb things like that again.

This is not a good comparison, Pierce is a top 10 player....Wade is a top 5 player when healthy! Remember wade has only been in the league for 5yrs and pierce what 10? Wade won the title basicly on his own with some decent role players and boston won with three all-stars which contribute and decent role players, yeah we had shaq but what did he do? He could'nt make a basket and he is basicly 2inches away from the basket at that, Wade has been injured 1.5yrs of his career and still played hurt because of more contact and he is a slasher with ok ball handles......am sorry but I have to give this one to wade!....Now if you compare wade and kobe then that's a tuffy but I WOULD have to say kobe, This link actually has 1)Kobe 2)Wade 3) pierce.

im not a fan of either team, so here's an unbiased opinion. wade is better, plain and simple. the big three is just that, three guys. all miami had was wade and the remains of what used to be shaquille o'neal. shaq's best years were behind him, wade led that team. when he's healthy wade is a top 3-5 player, pierce is a top 15 player.

heat had posey that year...not to mention haslem, mourning, williams, in addition to shaq... dont say they had a bad team cuz theyre team was pretty good... maybe u should look things up....

i think its a tie... pierce has the total package offensively... he can drive shoot the 3 and has a deadly midrange pull up... not to mention he can shut u down on D... wade has a very potent offensive game but his jumpshot isnt close to that of pierce....yet his driving ability and ball handling is much better almost unstoppable...

wade is better..hes up there with the likes of chris paul, kobe, lebron, kg while pierce is not in that conversation...pierce is a very good player but more along the lines of a top 20 player... wade is a great player who is arguably a top 5 player..if not then top 10 forsure

id also like to add for all u people who are blaming kg and ray for pierces play dont know wat ur talking about... the best player pierce has ever played with in his career before this year was antoine walker...and as i remember correctly pierce put that team on his back where the 3rd best player after pierce and walker was kenny anderson... and took them to the eastern conference finals... and in those finals pierce orchastrated the largest comeback in nba history until this year wen he orchastrated it again.... yup thats right the greatest and 2nd greatest playoff comebacks in nba history were both orchastrated by THE TRUTH Paul Pierce...

Why is everyone saying wade had no teamates? he had shaq, walker, posey, haslem, blount, williams

what has he done since that title..... nothing hes been hurt

also dont use the excuse of pierce has teamates, he scored 40 points against Lebron in the playoffs AND shut him down on defense


who els can say they shut down Lebron, Kobe, and won finals mvp???

Pierce > Wade

dont get me wrong i like Wade, i actually have his jersey, but id take the Truth any day

Wade when healthy is better than Lebron. ( Not by much) and is not far from Kobe. If i was starting a team i would try to get any combo of these 4 players. Lebron, Wade,Paul, Amare. IMO. Dont be negative. If you disagree please dont get ignorant.

wow, i know this guys not talkin about paul pierce.lol. Cuz apparently he knows nothin about backsetball...let alone paul pierce. Buddy, he averaged 20,5, and 5. Hold on you might not know what that means. 20 pts 5 rebounds and 5 assists a game. He also had Ray and KG on the team, and he still pulled those kind of numbers....Now wade is very good dont get me wrong. But he gets injured a lot. And he's still young, but im sure he'll be better then Pierce eventually....shoot he will be one of the best in the NBA. But not right now, i'd take pierce over wade.

pierce never scared me till he got hot this years playoff's. wade scares me any time he is on the floor. plus, pierce has never been considered top 5 in the nba and d-flop, i mean d- wade was. yes he got hurt a couple times but be plays defense, hits his jumper, can out run anyone not name cp3, can drive on anyone, rebounds and gets his teamates involved and makes them better. pierce was on a bad team but i never loked at him and said he will make them alot better.

Pierce is better shooter but Wade is better scorer. Wade is better playmaker by a mile. Pierce is considered better defender but you guys should remember that Wade was selected to all-defensive 2nd team in his rookie season, Pierce has never been selected to defensive team.

i dont understand why in this argument i keep seeing "Pierce was never considered top 5." thats the lamest point. hes been on terrible teams for almost his whole career. and it doesnt matter wat "experts" consider someone to be. wat matters is how the player plays.

ppl think Pierce improved a lot this year, but i dont think he improved much at all. hes always been this good, but no one outside of Boston ever got to see it until now.

u cant really compare these 2. they both play 2 different positions.

skill set wise, NO other SF in the league has as good an all aroung game as Pierce. hes got shooting, driving, dribbling, defense, rebounding, passing, leadership, and most of all hes CLUTCH. down the stretch, this guy will get u the win. whether he has to shoot 3's or drive to the hole. he gets the job done. the one thing that he isnt is FLASHY. thats why no one hears about him until now. theres no smoke and mirrors to the TRUTH.

D-wade is the man. incredibly fast and quick. he is also a scorer with great defense, and master handling, but he is smaller so he wont grab many rbs. extremely athletic and so far has been a good leader. problem is he is injurry prone. but he is as CLUTCH as it gets. the guy can get to the hole any time he wants.

tough comparison but i go with....Pierce. why? bc no one else could do wat he did in the finals. he shut kobe down and led the team in scoring. i also go with Pierce bc he has a lot more experience than Wade. Pierce's size and strength also gives him a big edge, which isnt fair but thats the comparison we are making.

Hey you wish you knew 10 percent of my basketball brain. You Know nothing! When im a sleep i know more than you do. You never make any good points so stop talking about what im saying. many people would agree with me on wade being better when healthy. I would say when both players careers are over Lebron will have been better. Its close but wade's championship year lebron hasnt touched yet. if your not going to respond positively just be quiet

Buddy, Pierce does not drive just as good as wade! C'mon are you serious? Wade has a good jumpshot not from far range but he can finish better than pierce! Piece of glass,That's funny! Its because wade is not scared to drive to the basket he does'nt care who's down there and like I said he finishes strong he sacrifes his body....Not like pierce when he faked that injury crying and gets carried off the court act like he broke his a leg, then come's back and goes crazy scoring everywhere! Trying to do a willis reed:rolleyes:

What did shaq do in the final's? Better yet what did he do in the playoffs? Walker! You mean the guy that would miss a layup by himself and shot about 28% from the floor and 82% was airballs and william the guy that you looked at his knee's and it started to hurt. You have a case with haslem and posey because they did great for us and please dont mention GP he was barley there for us....OH by the way blount was not on our roster:rolleyes:

problem is he is injurry prone.



How is Wade an injury prone? He had a bad dislocation, never recovered from that because he wanted to be back for the playoffs and now his an injury prone. An unhealthy Wade is still better than Paul Pierce. 25/4/7 and almost 2 steals per game is something that most NBA players donít achieve while being at their peek and being 100%.

Get the facts straight and stop being a homer.

:confused::laugh: none of them can even come near to kobe when it comes to offense and defense, they have never been in all defensive team, kobe 7times, he was not picked on that team because he didnt play defense alright, and pierce is better than wade.
wade is really overrated here's a better question is wade better than jammal crawford, they both have the same game, fast and can drive in, the only thing that seperates them is there weight and athleticism, and no one has ever dunked there way to a championship unless your shaq which reminds me he was wade's teamate when the heat got a ring, dont tell me that wade couldv'e got a ring without him just as pierce couldnt di it without kg, they didnt even need ray allen imo, theycould have started james posey, and got the same result, but pierce is a better defender.

If i could take Wade or Pierce to make a team around i would take Wade becouse his younger and like his mentality more also i find Wade more consistent if his healthy. What i like about Pierce is his versality and dedication to the team.

Wade. Coming out of the 05-06 season going into the 06-07 season up until February of that year Wade was arguably the best player in the NBA. He's been a top 5 scorer in the league every year of his career except his first. He's always been efficient from the field shooting 48% for the career. He's been a winner in the league since day 1. He's always been an above average rebounder from his position and he's an UNDERRATED defender. He was Big East defensive player of the year coming out of Marquette and he's also made an all defensive team in the league. He gets to the line at will and is one of the leagues most explosive players. He always finds a way to make the right play at the right time. He's good shot blocker for his position and has always been able to amass nice steal numbers w/o gambling on every attempt. Not to mention he's been one of the most clutch players in the game since early in his career. Anybody remember his game winner against Baron Davis in only the first playoff game of his career? I think Paul is a beast on both ends of the court, but Wade is only 5 years in the game and is widely respected as a top 5 player in the league when healthy. Look for him to reclaim that status starting in August.

why bother trying to compare 2 players on a different position, it's useless, it'll turn in a huge homer thread.

I'm not going to say whose better, cause they're both better then the other at different things. The only thing they really have in common is they needed James Posey to get a ring :D
