Wade, 38, listed Kobe Bryant, Baron Davis and Richard Hamilton as the hardest players he had to guard.
While Bryant is as an obvious answer, Hamilton’s selection may come as an interesting surprise to numerous fans.
However, Wade and Hamilton had multiple battles against each other. As a matter of fact, Wade faced the 2004 champion in the playoffs three separate times during his career.
Hamilton posted career averages of 17.1 points, 3.4 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game.
Davis, who also had a couple of postseason tussles with Wade, is also a somewhat surprising answer. Yet, it must be noted that Wade’s first playoff series came against the UCLA product during his rookie year.
In the first round of the 2004 Eastern Conference postseason, Davis put up 18.1 points, 7.0 assists and 4.1 rebounds per contest against Miami. Despite Davis’ stellar performance, Wade led the Heat past the New Orleans Hornets in seven games.
Over the course of his career, Wade averaged 22.0 points, 5.4 assists and 4.7 boards per contest.
