It’s never a bad thing to have an NBA legend such as Dwyane Wade in your corner, and Georgia will get to experience that first-hand.

Wade, who played for new Georgia coach Tom Crean at Marquette in the early 2000s, tweeted a show of support for the new hire on Saturday.

“We’re going to shoot the 3,” he said. “We’re not going to lead the country in attempts. But I certainly hope we can lead the country in percentage.

“There is no question that there is talent, and there is versatility and there’s a lot of youth inside of this program,” Crean said. “They defend, and they know how to run offense, they move the ball. I mean they’ve been well-coached. C’mon, I could go down the line, there’s no doubt about that.”
