Steph Curry Shows Respect To Dwyane Wade, Says he has "A Lot More In The Tank"
Dwyane Wade has had a legendary NBA career and at the end of the season, he will be calling it quits and retire from the game. This year has been a farewell tour of sorts for Wade and on Sunday, Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors got to pay their respects to the future hall of famer. After the Warriors defeated the Heat 120-118, Curry talked about just how good Wade still is at his age.
“It seems like he’s got a lot more in the tank,” Curry said according to ESPN. “That’s what I told him after the game. ‘Are you sure? I know you got a lot of stuff going on off the court with your family and stuff. Are you sure you don’t have a couple more years left in there?’ Obviously, with him going to every road arena one more time, it’s a different energy for sure.”
Wade finished the game with 10 points, 9 assists, and 6 rebounds which led Curry to explain what makes Wade such a special player.
“Everywhere he’s gone, you watch on TV,” Curry added. “It’s a different energy when he gets the ball. You understand how important he’s been to the game throughout his career. No matter who you root for throughout the league, you respect greatness in terms of what he’s been able to do throughout his entire career. Tonight wasn’t a loud night [in terms of performance], but he had some pretty influential plays.”
The Heat are in ninth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 25-29 but are just a win away from taking over the eighth spot.
