NBA News: Dwyane Wade Names Players Whom He Had Most Difficult Time Guarding

By Miguel Torres, Posted: 01/05/17 01:26AM EST

Chicago Bulls star point guard Dwyane Wade is considered to be one of the most noteworthy backcourt players in the game today.

With that considered, he is also rightfully matched up with some of the best players in the league, and is usually given the tall task to defend them. Even during his lengthy stint with his former team the Miami Heat, "DWade" has had his fair share of tough assignments, and he has named the two players who he has the most trouble playing against.

"For me, one, two -- however you want to put them -- is him and Kobe," Wade said (via "I've had to guard Kobe more, so I've been in that battle a little more with Kobe. But LeBron is -- he's unlike a player we've ... we've never seen a player like him." 

Wade left the Heat after 13 seasons and signed with the Chicago Bulls in mid-July. But for him, some of the most memorable moments of his career were during the time he played alongside James, when the latter played for Miami from 2010-2014. The duo comprised the team's "Big Three", with big man Chris Bosh to complete the trio.

As Wade noted, it was all about the brotherhood that developed between him and James that made their stints with the Heat more special. He also noted that he grew as a player during those years, stating that he learned to make sacrifices for the greater good of the team. But ultimately, he believes that the Heat were able to win those back-to-back titles during those years with them sharing a common goal.

"At the end of the day, the goal was to win championships, and we were able to win two together and play in four [Finals]. That's what you play the game for, and I'm happy about that."
