NBA stars are known for their love for Golf. From Michael Jordan to Stephen Curry, many have shown their love for the sport and often hit the course when free. Dwyane Wade is the latest entry to the club. The NBA star shared his excitement upon achieving the special milestone of hitting the hole-in-one at the Pebble Course in California, which is considered to be one of the most difficult achievements in golf.
As soon as Wade hit the hall-in-one he went on a course tour running with excitement and shouting with full voice. Later, Wade mentioned his accomplishment on his Instagram account. “My first hall-in-one, baby. I have been waiting on this for three years,” wrote Wade. “From the NBA Hall of Fame to the Pebble Beach Hall of Fame. I might as well get golf tattooed on my body; I’m locked in for life! HOLE-IN-ONE!”.
Stephen Curry, a golfer himself, replied with the caption “This is dope” on his social media handle and congratulated Wade for his achievement. Wade had picked Curry as the best point guard of all time. “My all-time starting five to date: Steph Curry, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Shaq. Call. Beating everybody!” said Wade.
Curry talked about the same. “Yes. It’s me and Magic (Johnson)? That’s the conversation? That’s what Basketball, that’s what sports is all about. That’s why people watch. That’s why people get in heated debates about it. I love it. So, you put me on my own team, I’m going to rep myself for sure,” said Curry. The comment of Curry received a response from Magic Johnson himself.
“OK, so, if he got more than five championships, if he got more than three Finals MVPs and three league MVPs, then he’s the greatest. If he got more than No. 1 in assists all-time in the Finals, No. 2 in double-doubles [in the playoffs and Finals], No. 1 in triple-doubles all-time in the NBA playoffs, No. 4 in steals all-time in the playoffs, if he got more than those numbers, then he’s the best,” said Magic Johnson.
