Ex-NBA guard Dwyane Wade, who spent the majority of his 16-year career playing for the Miami Heat, gave credit to his former team’s rookie sensation Kendrick Nunn:
“That’s what you love about sports, guys like Kendrick Nunn getting an opportunity. Once he got that opportunity, he took advantage of it. He has that Jimmy Butler, Dwyane Wade kind of mentality. He’s one of my favorite players to watch on the team. He’s a Chi-Town guy. I’m enjoying watching his play and watching his success. (Nunn’s number 25) is a number I used to wear in high school,” Wade said, per Miami Herald.
This season, the 24-year-old shooting guard is averaging 17.6 points, 2.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.4 steals per game, while shooting at 48.8% from thge field.
