It seems like Stephen Curry is on a mission this season to prove all those people wrong, who bashed him for not being able to carry the Golden State Warriors without Klay Thompson. So, with Klay’s comeback yet to happen, the Dubs still seem to be doing brilliantly without him. They not only have the best record in the Western Conference but also in the league.

In fact, Curry has been reaching new heights in his personal achievements as well. He surpassed Ray Allen in the record for all-time three-pointers – a title he deserves. However, it seems like Dwyane Wade isn’t a very big fan of the three-point game that Steph has helped instill deeply in the present-day games.

In a video where Dwyane Wade answers all Twitter questions directed to him, he was asked something quite pressing. The debate of whether the three-pointers have ruined the game of basketball has been going around for a while now. So, when asked about his opinion, he confessed that he isn’t very fond of it either.

“I wouldn’t enjoy playing the game with 80% of the shots being threes,” he started off,  “But I can understand the nature of the game today. I know that three points is more than two points. And if a team is shooting 60 threes, and one team is shooting 30, who’s gonna win that game?”

He further explained, “Coming from a different era, you wanna see the game played just the way that you played it. But you got to try to figure out a way, to appreciate the game, the way it’s played in today’s era.”

Warriors superstar climbs to No. 1 on the MVP ladder

The way that Curry has been carrying the Warriors – he is a worthy contender for the top spot in the race for this season’s MVP. There are many names that we have to remember in this course of this campaign, including Kevin Durant who has been exceptional. All of these players are worthy to receive the title of the MVP in their own right.

However, this doesn’t mean Stephen deserves it any less. In fact, he is an obvious contender for that title at the moment.
