Dwyane Wade Says He’s The Measuring Stick for Young Shooting Guards
This is reasonable.
Dwyane Wade on whether the young 2s in the game are measuring themselves against him: "They're supposed to. Kobe was my measuring stick."

Wade won’t go down as one of the greatest players of all time, but he will be seen as one of the better shooting guards of all time.
I think young players still see Kobe as the standard for this current generation, but trying to emulate D Wade isn’t a bad thing. unfortunately they all can’t play with LeBron to extend their careers.
Thanks to Word on the Game for the scoop.
