After the Chicago Bulls had shellacked the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center Monday, Dwyane Wade gushed about the fan base. 

The Bulls walked away with the 118-88 victory over the Nets and improved to 3-0 on the year; Brooklyn dropped to 1-3. In their victory, Wade chipped in 12 points, four assists, three steals, and three rebounds.

According to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, the three-time world champ enjoys coming to Barclays because the fans show him unconditional love.


Wade loves playing at Barclays so much that he’s averaged 22.8 points, 6.3 assists, and 4.0 rebounds in six regular season games at the venue.

Expectedly, his teams are 5-1 in those games.

His career-high in Brooklyn is 28, which he hit twice: December 16, 2014, and December 16, 2015. Fortunately for Nets fans, Chicago doesn’t come to Barclays again until Saturday, April 8.

If the Bulls continue to play this high of a level and maintain a middle-of-the-pack playoff see, the coaching staff may elect to rest an aging Flash.

I'm obsessed with basketball. I play (my hesi pull-up Jimbo is cash), I write and cover the Nets here at ESNY. My work has been seen on Bleacher Report, Sports Illustrated and FanSided. I also run my company, TBN Media. My favorite NBA player is Isaiah Thomas because I can look him in the eye.
