Dwyane Wade finally figured out how teams can stop Steph Curry

Bulls guard Dwyane Wade had good news for the rest of the NBA early Tuesday morning.

He knows how to stop All-NBA point guard Steph Curry.

Wade held an impromptu Q+A on Twitter, answering a number of questions from some of his nearly 7.1 million followers. The questions ranged from what was going through his head on some of his most famous plays, to fans asking for one of his championship rings, to where he ranks among the all-time great shooting guards.

But the highlight of the early morning was when a fan asked how to slow down the game's best shooter and one of its best scorers. Wade's response? Epic:

Curry's wife, Ayesha, has her own cooking show on the Food Network, and routinely posts images and recipes to her Instagram and Twitter accounts.

Whatever she's making Steph, it's working. In the last three seasons Curry has two MVP awards, a pair of championships and has set multiple shooting records in the process.

Wade's got the blueprint on how to stop the game's best shooter. But don't hold your breath on those stores all closing.

11 Bulls - including Cameron Payne - received a player vote to start in the All-Star Game

11 Bulls - including Cameron Payne - received a player vote to start in the All-Star Game

Maybe the rest of the NBA has really taken notice of the Bulls' recent play. After all, they're 13-8 since a putrid 3-20 start and are within shouting distance (if you yell really loudly) of the No. 8 spot in the East.

So maybe that's why 11 different Bulls - including the infamous Cameron Payne - received at least one vote to start in the NBA All-Star Game in February. That, or the players could not care less about the voting process and made a mockery of it for a second straight year.

This could become a get-off-my-lawn story, and we could go on for hours about why the NBA should really reconsider giving players 25 percent of the vote on starters. Then again, as a whole they seemed to get it right in the East, with Kyrie Irving and DeMar DeRozan in the backcourt, and LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Joel Embiid in the frontcourt. 

But instead of complaining, let's just get to the hilarious results and show you how the Bulls fared in both the player and fan voting (no Bulls received any media votes, because they shouldn't have).

Fun fact: The Bulls combined received 170,669 fan votes. That's about 5,000 less than Rockets center Clint Capela received. Their 31 combined player votes were two more than Carmelo Anthony received, so yeah.
