Dwyane Wade thinks that the starting training of the Golden State Warriors is arguably the best that the NBA has ever seen.
After winning three titles in the last four years, the Warriors have added DeMarcus Cousins to their already starred lineup and can now field five All-Stars in their lineup.
At the beginning of the decade, Wade was an integral part of the Miami Heat's "Big Three" alongside LeBron James and Chris Bosh. However, although the trio won two consecutive titles in the NBA, Wade admitted he was not close to having a starting lineup that could match the Warriors of this season.
In fact, few NBA teams, if any, in NBA history can claim to have set up a starting five comparable to that of Golden State.
"It's as good as it can be in our match with any team to play this game," Wade said Sunday, according to Wade, after Heat's defeat by two points against the Warriors in Oakland.
"It's as good as it gets with five starting points, that's why they are what they are, that's why they're champions, so to be able to add a guy like DeMarcus, that's what make big teams, they add a piece and keep adding some good pieces, and they did it. "
Cousin is an All-Star four times, while Draymond Green and Klay Thompson have three and five appearances in the All-Star respectively. Kevin Durant will play his 10th all-star game next week and Stephen Curry will make his sixth appearance.
In addition, the sixth man, Andre Iguodala, also appeared in the All-Star category.
Wade, who will make his 13th and final all-star game next week, however, thinks that the Warriors' dynasty will eventually end.
"The super teams go far, well before the Miami Heat," he said.
"Have a Hall of Fame, several Hall of Fame in a team. The league will continue to find the right talent. "
Against the heat, Durant, Thompson and Curry combined to get 93 points, tied for their third most prolific match as teammates. According to ESPN Stats & Info, the Warriors are 8-0 when the trio combines for at least 90 points.
Durant, top Durant scored for the Golden State with 39 points, adding six rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes, while Thompson finished with 29 points and Curry scored 25.
During his last appearance at Oracle Arena, Wade was received as a hero while the Warriors paid tribute to the star who was soon to retire, with a video tribute played during the first quarter.
The veteran guard almost helped the Heat to clear his way, as he stepped off the bench to score 10 points, adding nine assists and six rebounds.
The Warriors, however, had just what it took to hold Miami and win a fourth consecutive victory, which will improve their season record to 40-15 and tighten their grip on the West Conference summit.
Miami slipped to 25-29 with a second straight loss and remains tied with the Detroit Pistons for last place in the playoffs of the Eastern Conference.
