Winners respect winners. And two of the best shooting guards of this decade respect each other.
When the All-NBA teams were released on Thursday, Golden State Warriors sharpshooter Klay Thompson was absent.
As always, there were some suspect votes for All-NBA. My personal favorite was Andre Drummond receiving a Second Team vote. Also receiving a Second Team vote? Dwyane Wade.
The legendary shooting guard was making his retirement tour this year, and, while he was still impressive and fun, he was nowhere near All-NBA Second Team level.
Even Wade and his wife, actor Gabby Union know this.
Wade and Union went on social media to take the All-NBA teams and . . . well, I was going to transcribe this hilariousness, but I can’t do it justice. You just need to watch Union proclaiming repeatedly that Thompson deserved a vote, while Wade seems perplexed that someone put his name on a ballot.
Dwyane got an All-NBA vote in his last season, but it wasn’t from Gab Union— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) May 25, 2019
The whole Wade house voted for Klay
