All-NBA teams usually feature 'value to the team' as a large part of the criteria (i.e. Bosh getting second team when we won 47) and based on that Kobe is more important. Same goes for Dirk even though last year they went LeBron/KD at the forward spot for 1st team. I think David Aldridge's rankings were pretty spot on.

Given his youth, of course Wade will edge Kobe in pure stats, but it's the closest call in the top two All-NBA teams and it's really just 1A/1B when it comes down to it.

And I think anyone who argues for Wade here prefers stats and they should really look at Rose's; they're simply not MVP calibre for a true stat-head.
