Tiger Woods roasted Miami Heat legend and 3-time NBA champion Dwyane Wade one time with just two words for asking a simple and unwitting question. The Heat shooting guard wasn’t ready for Woods’ brutal honesty.

But that’s what he received. Tiger Woods doesn’t play around when it comes to golf. That’s one of the many reasons he is a household name all around the world, even though golf is not the most popular sport in the world.

Woods has established himself as a legend in the sport. His contributions to the sport of golf are immense. Some might even say that he put golf on the map.

Woods’ brilliance in the sport massively impacted its growth. He’s to golf what Michael Jordan is to basketball.

That’s why his judgement in the sport of golf is treated as gospel, especially by amateurs.

Tiger Woods’ honest reply to Dwyane Wade

Dwyane Wade once met Tiger Woods at a charity event in Las Vegas. Wade, who had been trying his hand at golf for some time, unwittingly asked Woods a simple question: “Can I be good at golf?”.

Hell no“, replied Woods without holding back.

Most people would’ve given a polite answer. But Woods doesn’t care about modesty when it comes to something he has dedicated his life to.

However, Woods’ reply couldn’t extinguish Wade’s spirit.

I’m a weekend warrior,” Wade added like a true world champion, “Nah man, I’m not going to to beat anybody until I stop working.”

This incident took place in 2007 when Wade was 25 years old. Now he is 40. He retired from the NBA in 2019. It will be interesting to see whether he has proved Woods wrong.

After 2007, Wade would join forces with LeBron James and win two more championships in 2012 and 2013. He would also become a part-owner of the Utah Jazz after retiring from the NBA.
