Tracy McGrady grabbed all the headlines tonight when he made an extremely controversial statement on Shannon Sharpe’s podcast. “LeBron and D-Wade, skill-wise, are not touching KD and Kyrie.” That was something that everyone believed to be disrespectful from T-Mac’s side. Considering that the Miami Heat duo of LeBron and Wade won more titles than Kyrie and KD so far. However, a lot of people had opinions agreeing with T-Mac, LeBron James and Dwayne Wade included.
LeBron and Wade made their opinions known on Twitter
LeBron James and Dwayne Wade’s tweets that took the fire from under T-Mac

He did not take offence to the words of T-Mac and did not throw him under the bus. In fact, his words helped take away a lot of mislead fans away from this topic. Dwayne Wade was being compared with Kyrie Irving. And completely based on recency bias, Kyrie Irving looks a lot better than Dwayne Wade. Kyrie has looked even better than KD on the Nets during the first 2 games of this years playoffs.
I see no lie told! They are 2 of the most skilled players of ALL-TIME

LeBron’s tweet changed the whole dynamic of the situation. It completely re-instated T-Mac’s image and spiraled into a new situation. All attention went to the time when Kyrie Irving refused to even mention LeBron as one of the best players he’s played with. LeBron looked genuinely hurt but never took any revenge, even during this T-Mac situation.
LeBron James has always been the better player in the conversation with KD. But KD is a lanky near 7 foot forward that can shoot the lights out the stadium. He’s also a dunk threat but is fast and lethal. Also, Kyrie is one of the best ball handlers of all time. So purely on skill, there is no debate that KD and Kyries are better. And this is now backed up by LeBron and Wade.
