The debate about who is the GOAT of the NBA is a topic that seems never to end, for many it is Michael Jordan, others point to Kobe, the youngest point to LeBron James or Stephen Curry and the old guard does not forget Kareem, but Dwyane Wade has a point of view that will undoubtedly generate controversy.

DWade continued with the generational theme and highlighted what the new stars of the NBA are doing, who little by little are also creating their own history. He accepts that it will be difficult to leave behind what Jordan’s name means both on and off the court, but he is convinced that the youngsters are ready to leave behind numbers that were believed impossible to overcome.
