"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.
