CHICAGO -- Dwyane Wade does not want to be viewed as a ring chaser.The Chicago Bulls guard made that clear a day after LeBron James acknowledged he tried to get his good friend to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers over the summer.Listen, Im not ring chasing, Wade said with a laugh after Thursdays practice. I told you that. If I was ring chasing, it would be a different conversation. Im lucky, and Im blessed. Obviously, we talked. But it wasnt ... its cool to talk about certain things but 3.5 ... nothing wrong with $3.5 million, but ... nothing wrong with it all.Wade said James never tried to sell him and Chris Bosh on signing with the Cavaliers in the summer of 2010. All three All-Stars ended up signing -- or in Wades case, re-signing -- with the Miami Heat that summer.Absolutely not, Wade said. Financially, I dont think they could even be in the game if it came to that. I know they were trying to get Chris there in a trade at some point. Obviously, we met with a few different teams, but when it came to us figuring out we could play together, Miami put the monkey wrench in the whole thing when they came with the idea that they can get three players. We never thought it was possible. I was shocked when I heard it could happen.But I know LeBrons eyes were here. I know my eyes were here. I know Chris eyes were kind of everywhere because he was in Toronto so he was just happy that people knew who he was. Toronto was a little different than it is today. Obviously, everything happened the way it happened.In the midst of his 20-minute post-practice media session, Wade also discussed how James should be viewed in the context of all-time greats in the league. Wade told ESPN last week that he thought no player would ever surpass Michael Jordans legacy and that the best James could hope for was a tie.Its tough [to compare] because these guys are different players, Wade said. Were not talking the exact same player. Were talking about different players in different times. Even though everyone crossed paths, Kobe crossed paths with Jordan, Bron crossed paths with Kobe, all these guys, were talking about great, great players.My comment was, to me, as an individual person, Michael Jordan is my favorite basketball player of all time. No one is ever going be my favorite like Michael Jordan. And understanding the time that were in today, the time Jordan was in, helps that as well. I didnt know a lot about MJ, all this stuff thats going on about players and everything we get to talk about, I didnt see none of that about Michael. So even to this day, hes still a superhero from that standpoint. Its just a total different time. For me, LeBron James is -- I thought at one point when we came in the league, Kobe Bryant was the greatest player in our era. Thats who we all strived for. Thats who we all looked up to to try to get [to that level].LeBron, when its all said and done, when his career is over, yes, hes arguably a top-three player of all time. And depending on what era you grew up in, you can decide whos one, whos two, whos three. But no one is going have a perfect [order]. All the numbers is not going to match up. Some players dont think Michael Jordan is the greatest. You go back to Bill Russell, you go back to Kareem [Abdul-Jabbar]. [Theres] so many players that can be [in the discussion]. I just felt that, for me, how much higher can you go? LeBron James could win 10 championships. That doesnt make you a better player. Hes as great as it gets, so now [the media] decides the rankings. But for me, Michael Jordan is my No. 1 favorite player of all time.Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg echoed Wades sentiments, saying he would put James on his Mount Rushmore of the games greats.You talk about versatility in basketball players and players that make those around them better, Im not sure theres too many in the game ever that have made their surrounding cast better players, Hoiberg said. You look at what happened a couple years ago, they had so many injuries to key guys and theyre still playing in the Finals. Its a testament to LeBron and what he can do as a basketball player.Hes such a tough cover because of his size, strength, his passing ability, unselfishness, and just his power and athleticism. That block he had in Game 7 at Golden State is one of the best plays Ive ever seen, the way he covered ground like he did. Hes an unbelievable basketball player, great instincts. I think the best thing you can say about him is how much he makes those around him better.As great as James is, Hoiberg knows that if Jordan played in todays game, with todays rules, he would dominate more than ever.The thing Ive always said about Jordan, if he would have played in todays era with the handcheck rule the way it is, he would have shot over 20 free throws every night, Hoiberg said. He was impossible to stay in front of. But when Jordan played, you could hold guys, you could grab them, you could be more physical with them. In my opinion, Michael Jordan is the best ever to put on a uniform. Theres really no debate. I think if you ask most people, [they would] give you that same answer.As far as LeBron is concerned, Id absolutely put him up there, as far as the Mount Rushmore. Again, hes so versatile, hes such a tough cover, he can guard. He does everything. Jack Johnson Jersey .ca.

LOUIS -- Rookie Tavon Austin has missed another day of practice, lessening the odds hell be ready for the St.MILWAUKEE -- Yovani Gallardo pitched like an ace for the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday. Gallardo, who came off the disabled list Friday, gave up three hits in 6 1/3 innings to lead the Brewers to a 2-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds. Gallardo, who strained his left hamstring July 30, did not give up a hit until the fourth inning when Brandon Phillips singled after Joey Votto walked. But Phillips was caught in a rundown after the ball got away from Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy. He threw just 82 pitches even though it took him 18 pitches to get out of the first inning. "I felt really good tonight," he said. "I was able to get everything working." Gallardo (9-9) has struggled at times this season, posting a career-high 4.68 ERA. He had also lost five of his past seven home starts prior to Saturday. "Obviously it has not been the year I wanted to have," he said. "But that is in the past. My focus is on finishing the season strong and today was a good step forward." Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said he was pleased that Gallardo pitched as well as he did after coming off the disabled list. "To be out that long and to come back with that kind of command, I was pleasantly surprised," he said. "This was really good to see." The other star of the night for the Brewers was centre fielder Logan Schafer, who broke out of a 0-for-21 slump with a two-run double. Schafer said he was just happy to get a hit after his recent struggles at the plate. "Its always nice when you hit the ball where theyre not," he said. "I was looking for something up and over the plate so I could drive it. It felt good to contribute to a win." The Reds threatened to score in the seventh inning as Gallardo gave up a one-out single to Phillips. Gallardo was replacedd by Brandon Kintzler, who gave up consecutive singles to Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick.dddddddddddd But Kintzler got pinch hitter Xavier Paul to ground into a double play to end the inning. "We had the right guy up there against the right kind of pitcher. He hit the ball hard, but right to him and its a double play," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. Kintzler pitched a scoreless eighth inning and Jim Henderson struck out the side in the ninth for his 18th save in 21 chances. Mat Latos (12-4) pitched seven innings for the Reds, giving up two runs and six hits. The two runs he gave up in the fourth inning snapped his scoreless streak at 19 innings. Lotus career high is 21 consecutive shutout innings, most recently accomplished April 19 to May 5. Baker said Cincinnati hitters did not give Latos much room for error by not scoring any runs. "He had some trouble out there and his pitch count got kind of high in the middle, but he gave us a chance to win," he said. "We had bases loaded a couple times, but we couldnt keep the ball off the ground, hitting into a double play." The Brewers scored the only runs of the game in the fourth inning. Khris Davis and Scooter Bennett singled with two outs. Schafer followed with a double to right field to score both runners. Notes: Brewers All-Star centre fielder Carlos Gomez missed his second straight game. He is listed day to day with a sprained right knee after making a catch at the wall during Thursdays 2-1 loss to Cincinnati. ... Ludwick got his first hit of the season in the fifth inning. Ludwick returned to the lineup this week after missing most of the season with a right shoulder injury. ... RHP Wily Peralta will start the series finale on Sunday for the Brewers.
