Dwyane Tyrone Wade, Jr. (born January 17, 1982) nicknamed Flash or D-Wade, is an American professional basketball player for the Miami Heat. Awarded 2006 Sportsman of the Year by Sports Illustrated, Wade has established himself as one of the most well-known and popular players in the league. He had the top selling jersey in the NBA for nearly two years, as he led the NBA in jersey sales from the 2005 NBA playoffs, until the mid-point of the 2006–07 season.[1]

After entering the league as the fifth pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, Wade was named to the All-Rookie team and the All-Star team the following eight seasons. In his third season, Wade helped lead the Miami Heat to their first NBA Championship in franchise history. He was named the 2006 NBA Finals MVP as he helped lead the Heat to a 4–2 series win over the Dallas Mavericks. At the 2008 Summer Olympics, Wade led the United States Men's Basketball team, commonly known as the "Redeem Team", in scoring, as they captured gold medal honors in Beijing, China. In the 2008–09 season, Wade led the league in scoring and earned his first NBA scoring title.

As the only player in history to score more than 100 points in an NBA game and even though playing many years ago he is still holding records.

Kobe Bryant has to be in the top ten best basketball players because of all he has accomplished with and without help.

And another thing, Kobe Bryant has the most points ever scored in a single game since the shot clock was put into use with 81 points.

We all know that one of the greatest players in the history of basketball has to be Ervin "Magic" Johnson especially since he has won 5 championships including one in his rookie season in which he was the finals MVP and he has been in a total of 9 finals matches.

I sure hope Kobe (who is good in his own ways) does not top Jordan in this list.
