Dwyane Wade has given 16 seasons to the NBA as a member of the Miami Heat, Chicago Bulls, and the Cleveland Cavaliers, with many believing the 36-year-old shooting guard was going to call it a career this year. D Wade announced that he’s coming back to the Miami Heat for one last season and fans on Twitter are overjoyed.
The numbers speak for themselves. Wade has averaged over 22 points for his career with five assists, and nearly five rebounds a game. He is also a three-time NBA champion, an Olympic gold medalist, a 12-time NBA All-Star, and two-time All-NBA first team selection. Simply put, this man has played his heart out at every level.
But as every great player realizes, Father Time is undefeated and Wade’s time at the top has come to an end. Still, there’s some game left in the old man and he’s also been a fantastic ambassador for the sport as evidenced by the accolades from fans all over the world.
We’ve collected some of the responses to D Wade going for one last ride below.
