Dwyane Wade and Tiger Woods talk about Stephen Curry

Dwyane Wade appeared in the episode of ‘A Round with Tiger: Celebrity Playing Lessons’ in July, which is hosted by Tiger Woods. Somehow, the duo’s conversation came to Curry and they both couldn’t stop praising the Warriors’ guard.

“I don’t know about you. You’ve been watching basketball for a long time. I’ve been playing and watching for a long time. But the stuff I see Steph Curry do,” Dwyane Wade told Tiger Woods.

“I’d be like there’s no way. There’s no way them shots going in and they be cash. These are running the other way. But in my mind, I’m like ‘it don’t really make sense’. The fact that he can shoot like that. And like them is what we would call bad shots. In our generation, that was a bad shot. But for him, they are his shot.”

“He’s totally changed the game,” Tiger Woods added.

However, two legends of different disciplines praising Curry are another testament to how good he is.
