Stephen Curry has hilarious solution to Heatles, Warriors super team debate
When asked about a hypothetical matchup between the Miami Heat Big Three versus the Warriors dynasty team, Stephen Curry joked about settling the debate on NBA 2K.
Retired Heat legend Dwyane Wade raised the question during an Instagram Live interview with Warriors’ Stephen Curry. Wade immediately laughed at Curry’s quip and protested that he was not good at the video game.
Who you got – Heatles or Warriors? 🤔🍿

Afterward, the three-time NBA champion then gave an honest answer, to which the Warriors MVP agreed:
I think we all have those moments when you see great teams and … individual players, and be like, “Damn, I would love to have had a moment to play against them in my prime.”
The former Heat superstar then said that no one will ever get a definitive answer, as the two teams played in completely different generations.
The Heatles, as they were called, were a trio in the early 2010s, namely Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh. All three were top-five picks in the 2003 NBA draft and teamed up in Miami from 2010-2014. They eventually won back-t0-back titles in 2012 and 2013. Wade and Bosh retired with 13 and 11 All-Star selections respectively. Meanwhile, the 35-year-old LeBron is still going strong in his 16th straight All-Star season.
Curry, meanwhile, was a key player in the more recent Warriors “superteam.” The dynasty arguably started in 2016, back when superstar Kevin Durant infamously joined the Dubs. As such, Golden State gained four All-Star starters in Steph, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and the former Thunder forward. KD’s decision earned mixed reactions, but nothing denied them from dominating the league. They eventually grabbed back-to-back championships in 2017 and 2018.
