Dwyane Wade was in the TNT studios tonight for some blockbuster matchups, and he was full of praise for Warriors legend Steph Curry.
Curry has been entertaining fans his whole career with his crazy handles, jaw-dropping shooting and accurate passes. But, he’s not only the favourite for fans. He’s also the favourite of many NBA legends. Dwyane Wade has always been fond of Stephen Curry’s game. During the Warriors-Celtics match, Wade tweeted:
‘I can watch Steph play every day.’
I can watch Steph play everyday!

Curry finished the game with big numbers – 38 points, 12 rebounds and 8 assists – in a tough loss to the Celtics. On Tuesday’s ‘TNT’ halftime show, Dwyane Wade even recalled the time when he himself had to guard Curry. Wade said:
“He would run, put his head down, and he would go through two screens on the other side of the court so fast. If you got big shoulders like me, you’re not getting through those. So you gotta be a slender guy to guard Steph, but he’s amazing off the ball and that’s one thing the highlights don’t always show.”
Steph Curry joins legend Wilt Chamberlain with 17,000 points for the Warriors
Steph Curry is not new to breaking records and reaching milestones. On his way to scoring 38 points against Boston, Curry reaches an incredible milestone. The 2-time MVP joined the legend Wilt Chamberlain as the only player in Warriors’ history to scored 17,000+ career points.
Hall-Of-Famer Shaquille O’Neal also praised the three-pointer specialist. During the halftime show, on Tuesday, Shaq labelled the 32-year-old point guard his ‘favourite’ and went on to explain immediately:
“I like him because he’s something that I haven’t seen before. See, a lot of times when I try to compare the old era to the new era, people say I’m hating. First of all, I’m too great to hate. Second of all, I’ve never seen anything like Steph, and that’s why he’s my favorite player.”

Currently, the 6-foot-3 guard has been averaging 27.7 points, 6.1 assists and 5.4 rebounds per game. He looks to lead the Warriors after their last season’s embarrassment. The Warriors have an 11-10 record and sit on the 9th spot. They can easily make a playoffs push as it is still very early in the season.
