Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade Emotional Tribute Video
Dwyane Wade is set to retire at the end of this NBA season, Tuesday is his final home game (barring the team making the playoffs-two games remaining and they're one game out of the playoff picture).
He's been a player that's transcended the game, all season long he's been swapping jerseys with opposing players as a sign of mutual respect. In this recent commercial, he's seen swapping more than just a jersey but a piece of people he's had such a profound impact on during his time playing the game of basketball.
I'm one of those old school New York Knicks fans and there isn't a team I dislike more in the NBA more than the Miami Heat but I've always respected the hell out of Dwyane Wade as a player and as a person.
And yes, I did tear up watching this and if you didn't I question if your tear ducts are working properly or not.
Here are some of Dwade's career achievements:
- Three-time NBA Champion (2006, 2012, 2013)
- Five NBA Finals appearances
- 2006 Finals MVP
- Thirteen-time NBA All-Star
