On Saturday, Dwyane Wade announced on a YouTube video that he has one more season left in him before calling it quits in 2019. “I feel like it’s right to ask you guys to join me for one last dance, for one last season,” he said in the video, referring to Miami as his partner for ‘one last dance’.
One of the NBA’s most beloved stars, Flash was part of the 2003 class that has deeply changed the course of the Association and the sport. Miami’s unforgettable number 3 often surprised with his grit and unmatched versatility throughout his 15-year career.
Wade’s career went through a difficult start, and barely made the draft of 2003, but the 2006 title made a case for his talent, not only because of his irreplaceable role in the comeback that the Heat handed to Dallas, but also to cement his place among the greats.
At his peak, Wade would make any highlight reel of the NBA, often on different categories. Characterized by determination, he served the fans an array of circus layups, incessant rebounding, pivotal buzzer beaters, and world-class consistency. It will definitely be a pleasure to watch his efforts reach for glory once again, although it will be a sad goodbye for the sport.
