The Miami Heat took on the Los Angeles Lakers last night in what was supposed to be a battle of two of the greatest shooting guards ever, but Kobe Bryant’s sore back led him to miss his 20th head-to-head battle with Dwyane Wade.

The Heat defeated the Lakers 101-88 and after the game Wade reminded everyone that no matter how rough the finish to Bean’s NBA career is, it can’t hurt his legacy.
Wade echoes several other fellow players statements as he says Kobe is the greatest player of his era. Via ESPN:
“I do feel — and I’ve said this before the last couple of years with LeBron [James], when he became the best player in our game — that Kobe Bryant is the greatest player of our era,” Wade said. “The Kobe Bryants aren’t around no more. There are good young players, but there will never be another Kobe. So every opportunity you get to [face him], you want to seize that moment.”
