Miami Heat icon Dwayne Wade was one of the hardest players to defend during his time in the league.
As a matter of fact, journeyman Jamal Crawford put Wade in the same category as Allen Iverson and Kobe Bryant as the toughest players to guard.
Kobe, AI, D Wade for me. https://t.co/BC24i8Cz08

Crawford, 40, isn’t on an NBA roster this season.
Crawford has played against hundreds of players since he came into the league during the 2000-01 season. Therefore, his affirmation of Wade bears a lot of weight.
Wade, who retired from the league after the 2018-19 season, won three championships during his 16-year career. He won the 2006 NBA Finals MVP award.
Of course, Wade dominated the association with his array of scoring techniques. To this day, Wade is the Heat’s all-time leader in points scored.
