Dwyane Wade to Kevin Durant: ‘Enjoy Your Decision and Just Enjoy Playing Basketball’

    Like everyone else in the basketball world, Bulls guard Dwyane Wade also has his eyes on the new-look Warriors. Only thing is, unlike majority of the basketball world, Wade has major experience with super teams and the expectations/scrutiny that comes with them.

    The man who helped form one of the greatest trios in NBA history in Miami back in 2010 gave the Warriors some great advice. The three-time NBA Champion says they shouldn’t force themselves to embrace the villain role like the Heat did in 2010-11, because it just isn’t who they are.

    “I think them guys understand what it takes,” Wade said of the sacrifices needed to win under such circumstances. “I think the biggest thing is, what I say is just enjoy it. One thing we did wrong our first year was we played into the villain role because people was not liking that we was together and we tried to play into that role. That’s not why we started playing basketball – we started playing basketball because we enjoyed it and we loved it.”

    Wade wants to see the Dubs play the happy brand of basketball that sent them to two straight NBA Finals and advises that Kevin Durant keep enjoying the game he loves.

    “When you play that way, you win that way,” Wade said of playing with joy. “That’s the one thing, don’t play into the role of what people expect of you.

    “You have the ability to do whatever you want in life and you made a decision, so live with your decision,” he said of Durant, specifically. “Enjoy your decision and just enjoy playing basketball.”
