Re: Heat > Undertaker
Wade would not be guarding Jordan, it just doesn't make sense.
These fantasy match ups are silly. We did this earlier when we were discussing US Olympic team and THE DREAM TEAM.
imho, Lebron is the most skilled NBA player in history, without question. Does he lack things Jordan had? Without doubt. As far as sheer skill, it's Lebron. Not this this matters much either as there's far more too it than skill.
Second, Pippen never guarded a player like Lebron in his career. Why? A player like Lebron didn't exist. No one in the League until Lebron had that combination of speed, strength, athleticism and skill that Lebron has. He's an absolute freak. Could Pippen have learned to guard him over time if they played at the same time? Sure, maybe. But Lebron still would have been Lebron.
Again, these comparisons are silly and pointless, there's no right answer and the game has changed immensely.
