How frequently do they speak? "Very often, man," Wade said. "I think we talk as much as you can ever talk to one of your best friends, whether it's about basketball or it's about (James' sons) Bronny and Bryce and (Wade's sons) Zaire and Zion and so on. It's what we do, and what we've always done—even before we became teammates, when [there] were articles back then saying, 'How can these guys be so close and still compete against each other?'

And then, when the game [starts], then do what you've got to do." ESPN.com

Debates of Bryant, Carter (now with the Memphis Grizzlies) and McGrady (retired but discussing a comeback) now are tinged with nostalgia. "For sure, there's no question; he definitely won that debate," said Lakers shooting guard Wayne Ellington, 27. "I grew up really watching Kobe a lot. ... I've always just loved his game, ever since him coming out of high school. I watched him close." Wade insists Jordan will forever be the measuring stick for shooting guards. But he also acknowledges his sons (the oldest is 12) know Jordan "probably more so because of his sneakers," he said. USA Today Sports
