Dwyane Wade Praises Stephen Curry: “I Mean, He’s Just Impossible To Guard."

Stephen Curry

There's no denying that Stephen Curry has completely changed the game of basketball. 

His ability to shoot and pull up from all over the court has forced coaches to play defense differently. He's made young players believe that they can shoot from halfcourt, and has paved the way for a more three-pointer-friendly NBA.

But Steph is way more than just a shooter. His handles, his speed, and ability to move off the ball have made him one of the deadliest scorers of all time.

That's why Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade had no choice but to shower him in praise during a recent breakdown on NBA on TNT, claiming that he actually puts fear on the defender and that there's no such thing as a 'bad shot' for him:

“You have a little fear. And not from like you’re scared of a guy, but just not knowing what he’s going to do. When the guy is coming and obviously he has an amazing handle. But when a guy can shoot from anywhere on the floor, when he shoots going left and right, and then when you get the ball up, he’s even more deadly with his cuts, with his screening. I mean, he’s just impossible to guard. When I watch this guy, I watch him shoot shots that I’m like ‘no, that’s not a good shot’," Wade said. 

“But for Steph, that is a perfect shot. What I love about Steph is obviously all the highlights we see from him coming down shooting these 50 footers, but what I love about him is his ability to give the ball up, the ability to play off the ball, to pass the ball with both hands. He’s a great finisher, people don’t give him credit, because we see the half-court shots that he makes. But he’s a great finisher with both hands, he takes contact well. This guy is phenomenal," he concluded.

The Golden State Warriors still have 10 games left in the regular season and they're looking to clinch a spot in the play-in tournament, so perhaps the best of Curry is yet to come, as there's no way they make it without him continue his MVP-caliber play.
