During his media availability for All-Star weekend in Houston, Dwyane Wade was asked how this era of basketball will be remembered. And while you might of thought his answer would include teammate and NBA champ, LeBron James – it didn’t.

You can talk about their greatness. This is a good era for basketball, and it would be led by Kobe Bryant – who was the greatest player in our era.”
