Dwyane Wade said that his Miami Heat teammate and good friend Lebron James is playing on Michael Jordan's level, but that he still has to accomplish more as far as legacy:
It is the bar set for LeBron James — Michael Jordan set it.
LeBron’s game is really more Magic Johnson — an oversized ball handler on the perimeter with great vision who breaks the mold of what we expect. But Jordan with his six rings and massive collection of hardware — not to mention the iconic status and ownership of the basketball shoe market to this day — is the measuring stick.
Dwyane Wade, speaking before his adult basketball camp with Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel, compared LeBron to Jordan.
“He’s on that level,” Wade said, “but he has a lot more to do to get there. I think he understands he has an unbelievable opportunity to be one of the greatest to play this game. But that’s when he gets done playing, he can say that.
“Right now, he has so much more to cover in his career. He’s just getting started at the same time when Michael kind of just got started. We’ll see how it all shakes out. I hope it shakes out the same way. I’ll be a very happy man.”
Wade has been extremely supportive of LeBron, despite the fact that LeBron basically took his talents to South Beach and took his shine. I actually agree with Wade on his statement, because it is hard to find a player in the history of the game, that had a better year than Bron's 2011-12, except Jordan's 1991-92. LeBron won the league's MVP, Finals MVP with the championship ring. The only thing missing for LeBron was the All Star MVP, but he arguably had the best performance in that game too, but his team had to win it for him to get the award.
LeBron is well on his way, and I don't see what will prevent him from winning a couple more championships.

The only thing would be God. We never know what He has planned for us. Lebron is great and a very giving man.
