Wade: ‘Not Possible’ For LeBron to Pass Jordan’s Legacy


Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade believes that no matter how many different things LeBron James accomplishes in his career, trying to surpass Michael Jordan’s legacy is a fool’s errand. “No, it’s not possible,” Wade told ESPN with a laugh. “It’s not possible.”

Wade is in a unique position within the context of the comparisons between James and Jordan. He won two of his three NBA championships playing alongside James — one of his closest friends — with the Miami Heat. As a kid growing up in the Chicago area, Wade was a Bulls fan and watched Jordan rack up six championships, earning the respect of millions around the globe. “The only thing you can do is tie it,” Wade said. “There’s no 19th hole.”
