Many NBA players are NFL fans and the respect between players of the two sports is mutual. Mike Evan, wide received of the NFL side Tamp Bay Buccaneers, expressed appreciation for the love he receives from the NBA superstars LeBron James and now-retired Dwyane Wade.
“I got a lot of love from a lot of my family, my friends, people I care about, a lot of people that I look up to. D-Wade, LeBron, guys like that. That’s awesome. I’ll never be too big to not appreciate that,” Evans said.
Wade responded to Evans’ quote by tweeting “Greatness recognize Greatness.”
