Along with Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are part of a talented group collectively known to fans as the 'super friends'.

However, being close with LeBron does not alter Wade's opinion on who the greatest of all-time is.

King James dragged the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first ever title this year for his third championship overall.

However, according to Wade, he still cannot catch Michael Jordan as the GOAT.

"No, it's not possible," Wade told ESPN with a laugh. "It's not possible."

Four years ago, the Chicago Bulls man, who grew up watching MJ play in his hometown of Chicago, but also won two titles alongside James, used golf as an analogy to compare the two.

"I don't know if [James] has the ability to surpass him or not," Wade said at the time. "That's yet to be seen. My version as LeBron being on par with Michael is this: They're both on the golf course. Michael's on the 18th hole; LeBron is somewhere on like the fourth hole. He's got a long way to go, but he's on par to get to the 18th hole."

He's now revised that statement in light of LeBron's recent achievements.

"I think last year - not only in my eyes, but in a lot of people's eyes - really put him... he's on the 15th hole right now," Wade said of James. "And he's on his way, for sure."

Still, as the reporters flooded him with comparison questions, the legendary gaurd wore a big smile and said of Jordan;s legancy: "You can't go past it. How can you? That's as great as it gets, man. The only thing you can do, like I said, is be A-1, A-B. There's no way higher."
