"It seems like he's got a lot more in the tank," Curry said. "That's what I told him after the game, 'Are you sure? ... I know you got a lot of stuff going on off the court with family and all that. Are you sure you don't have a couple more years left in there?' "

Wade has made it clear he's sure, but Curry isn't the only NBA player questioning his decision to end his career this year. The 37-year-old has said that he's received similar messages from other players around the league.

Entering Monday's game against the Nuggets, Wade is averaging 13.9 points on 42.7 percent shooting, 3.9 rebounds and 4.4 assists off the Heat's bench this season.

"We understand how important he has been to the game throughout his career," Curry said. "No matter who you root for throughout the league, you respect greatness, in terms of what he has been able to do throughout his career."

Warriors All-Star forward Kevin Durant also spoke highly of Wade.

"He's done and experienced so much in the league, and he's been really good as an older guy with all the younger guys in the league, as well," Durant said. "I think he's invested so much into basketball, especially physically, that it's just time to walk away and pursue what's next in his life. As a hooper from day one, I can appreciate that about D-Wade, especially battling him in the Finals and throughout my whole career. It's good to see guys go out the way they want to."

That's what impresses Warriors forward Draymond Green. Wade is ending his career when he wants to and how he wants to.

"I think if you looked at D-Wade three years ago, you kind of were worried, like, 'Ah is it over?'" Green said to reporters. "And he's battled back from that, and it's good to see a guy who's great as D-Wade was close out on a strong note. The way he's playing this year, it's great to see him go out like that. You kind of hate to see a guy limp out of the game, and there are some kids that will see some of these older guys and be like, 'Oh man, he sucked.' No, if you knew that guy five years ago, like - but that's just the nature of the business we're in. However, like I said, I think D-Wade is playing amazing this year. It's good to see him go out on a high note."

As for Wade, he was thankful for the ovation he received at Oracle Arena and for the tribute video the Warriors put together for him.

"It was great man. It was amazing," Wade said. "They really put some thought into that. Afterward, I said to my teammates that, it was dope. It was a great tribute. I appreciate Steve Kerr and the Golden State organization and the fans for the ovation. It was a fun environment to play in."

Stephen Curry to Dwyane Wade: 'Are you sure you don't have a couple more years left?'

Greg Cote: No matter how this season ends for the Heat, Dwyane Wade is going out a winner.
Feb. 20-- Feb. 20--Steph Curry, after the Miami Heat's recent game at Golden State, suggested Dwyane Wade does not look like a player about to retire, saying, "It seems like he 's got a lot more in the tank." It was all compliment. And he may have been right, too. But on this, the Warriors' three-point sniper missed the point. Wade wanted to go out on his terms, not on empty, and that has been something remarkable and under-appreciated about his "Last Dance" season. Most athletes, and perhaps especially superstars, aren't sure when to quit, or how. Wade is writing the textbook on that.
