“We grew over the years,” Anthony began. “I know people joke about the banana boat, but we’re more than a banana boat. This is a true friendship. We came in this league together. Now look at you. You trading jerseys and s—. But it’s all love because at the end of the day. It’s bigger than basketball.”
Then it was Paul’s turn to speak.
“You have some guys that are teammates. You spend nine, 10 months together and what not, but at the end of the day they’re just teammates,” Paul said. “But us? This don’t go nowhere. And I still can’t imagine now, you not being in this league next year. I think at the end of the year he’s going to change his mind and we’re going to do this all over again next year.”
It’s truly special what the NBA has done for Wade during All-Star Weekend. While he wasn’t originally a part of the roster, league commissioner Adam Silver added him as a special addition to honor his career.
Moments like these prove that Silver and the NBA knew exactly what they were doing when they decided to make Wade a part of this year’s All-Star Weekend.
