When did I say Wade was BETTER than Kobe?
We were talking about notoriety, not whether one player was better than the other.
And to suggest that Wade was being ignored nationally when he had more 1st place MVP votes than every other player except Bron, finished right behind Kobe in all star voting, made first team all nba, lead the friggin league in scoring on Jordan-esque efficiency, etc, is comical.
Dude he was ignored nationally!
Is there any memorable moments from that season, a casual fan would remember?
You ask casual NBA fans what was Wade's greatest season. I bet you you're going get 2006 as the answer way more times than somebody going to say 2009. Nobody cared in 2009 because the Heat record was so mediocre.
How could anybody get hype about Wade when Lebron was doing more and winning more with less talent? And Kobe was coming off an MVP season and his team was the favorite that year.
In 2009, it was Kobe vs Lebron every day, all day, all the time
