Good? Yes. Greatest? Hell No!

As I watch the NBA finals I can't help but notice how good of a player Dwyane Wade has become. It hurts to see him on another team, but thats how life is. What I absolutely cannot stand however is the comparison between him and Michael Jordan. How on earth can you compare a guy who is in his third NBA season, not having won a title, not having won an MVP award (regular season, post season, or all-star game), not having been named to the all defensive team, not having been crowned the scoring champ, etc. to the greatest player the NBA has seen? Can't be done! I don't think it is fair to Michael or Dwyane. There is no doubt in anyone's mind that Dwyane Wade is a superstar in the league and definite comparisons can be made between him and other top players in the NBA, but quit the comparison to Michael Jordan already.

On another note, I have come to realize how much of a chicken-shit David Stern (the NBA commissioner) really is. Today he fined Mark Cuban 250K for remarks after game 5 of the finals - yet he wont go on record with ESPN or any other news outlet to say exactly what the fine was for. It is unfortunate that Mark Cuban gets fined for saying what every other Mavs fan and newspaper columnist says every day.

Good luck to the Mavs tonight. If they win tonight, I really do think they will take game 7.
