MIAMI – This one was way too easy for Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, the current Stockton and Malone of the NBA.
With well-known headhunters such as Lennox Lewis and Ndamukong Suh sitting in the AmericanAirlines Arena crowd (suspended center Dexter Pittman would have felt right at home), Wade and James put a 93-79 two-man hurt on the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference finals series.
And that raises an interesting question…
Could this Wade-James duo – in only its second season together and not having won anything – potentially rank among the all-time great twosomes in NBA history?
If James and Wade lead this limping Miami Heat team to the title, over San Antonio or Oklahoma City and without the services of injured forward Chris Bosh, wouldn’t you have to consider them among the NBA’s all-time best duos?
And if the Wade-James duo is that darn good, what happens when/if Bosh returns?
