Dwyane Wade isn’t holding back praise of the Golden State Warriors, saying the team’s starting lineup ranks among the best in NBA history. 

“That is as good as it gets in our game with any team ever to play this game,” Wade told reporters. “That is as good as it gets with a starting five. That is why they are who they are, that is why they are champions.

“To be able to add a guy like DeMarcus [Cousins] to it, that is what great teams do. They add a piece and keep adding certain right pieces, and they’ve done it.”

The Warriors are the first team in NBA history to start five players who were named to the previous year’s All-Star team. Cousins signed a one-year, $5.3 million contract with the team in July as he was recovering from an Achilles rupture. Boogie is averaging 14.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 10 games since making his Warriors debut.
