“I got news that I got a vote to be on the All-NBA team,” Wade, who retired at the end of the regular season, said in a video posted to his Instagram story Friday. “Baby, did you vote for me?” he asked as he panned the camera to Union. “No … I voted for Klay Thompson,” she joked. “I voted for Klay too, but I don’t get a say,” said Wade. “With that being said, whoever voted for me, I do appreciate you, but you definitely could have saved that vote for one of the people who deserved it.”
In addition to the sting of the snub, Thompson will not be eligible this summer to sign a five-year supermax contract worth $221 million. He’ll instead be eligible for a five-year max deal worth $191 million with the Warriors once he becomes a free agent on July 1. “I didn’t? It already came out?” Thompson said after Thursday’s practice, before being told that he just missed being selected for the third team. “I mean that’s cool and all but like when you go to five straight Finals, I respect those guys but when you go to five straight it takes more than just a couple All-NBA guys. It’s like an all-time team, but whatever, I’d rather win a championship than be third-team All-NBA, so it’s all good.”

Anthony Slater: Klay Thompson learns he didn’t make All-NBA (“Oh I didn’t?”) and is clearly a little ticked (it affects his next contract): “When you go to five straight Finals, it takes more than a couple All-NBA guys…Do I think there are that many guards better than me? No.” pic.twitter.com/bW5DiBavo1
