Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade Says He's Undecided About Retirement

Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade Says He's Undecided About Retirement

Only a year after falling a tiebreaker short of the postseason, Hassan Whiteside finds himself in a quick exit in the first round after taking a 104-91 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night. While there was much celebration for the Sixers, the Heat are left to ponder their season and the summer that looms ahead.

There are many decisions that the Heat organization will have to make this offseason, and one of those decisions will certainly be about Whiteside's future.

"That's not my focus", Wade told Ian Begley of ESPN.

"Fresh off this National Basketball Association season, my fifteenth year, I sit back and think about that" Wade stated in a postgame press conference about the prospect of retiring. "Right after the game it was like, '(If it's) our last time going against each other, then it's been everything and more.' But I'll give you guys a more in-depth analysis of his career if he decides to hang 'em up". They're next on my bucket list, making sure I'm there for them.

He continued that 'I love Philly, but ain't gonna be no breaking news here in Philly, ' before adding he meant to 'worry about that later'. "I'm sorry. I appreciate [the concern], but let me worry about that later".

Whiteside played just 10 minutes in the contest and scored two points on 0-for-4 shooting and had five rebounds. He averaged 30.2 FanDuel points per game in the playoffs.


'Each day that he's been back, I've just been trying to enjoy it.

Wade: "I don't know". I didn't think that this would happen this year. "You sit down and you make the best decision for you and your family".

His wife, actress Gabrielle Union, expressed a similar sentiment on Twitter after the game. He is a damn legend. But if the Heat had it their way, there's no question he's going to be moved this summer. Yet even in leaving South Florida, Wade always felt a kinship to the franchise and said in 2016 "I'll always be a Heat."

James and Wade reunited as "PB & J" briefly this season with the Cavaliers before he was sent back to his franchise home at the trade deadline.

Upon hearing Whiteside's comments about his lack of playing time, Heat guard Dwyane Wade had a message for the Heat center.

Wade won three championships with the Heat (2006, '12, '13) and was named Finals MVP in 2006.
