Paul Pierce's Career Was More Impressive Than Dwyane Wade's

Alexander Zverev congratulates his favorite athlete on amazing NBA career

"The jersey [swap] with my teammates was something I wanted to do all year", Wade said, according to ESPN.

Making the adjustment once the curtain drops on a career is rarely easy for a professional athlete.

Paul Pierce says he was a better National Basketball Association player than Dwyane Wade. Seriously", Wade said. "I meant it, it is going to be a big change. I think, at this point, as you have one more game left, that's all you have these moments. I nearly got - the video when [son] Zaire did the same thing I did in the Converse commercial years ago, that nearly got me. But I need someone to talk to about it.

"Wish I was there to see you smile".

Wade credits his team for allowing him to close out his career exactly the way this year played out, and he wanted to honor them.

It absolutely makes their road to the playoffs even more hard, and possibly out of reach. And when something surpasses that vision, it's like an out-of-body experience. "I couldn't have asked for a better ending to my last game in this arena, to my last season". "And I couldn't have written it about my life".

Speaking about the Heat's battle for the 8 seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs, Wade said: "I'm gonna go out the way D-Wade's supposed to go out".

In February 2018, he was traded back to the Miami Heat and he is playing his final few National Basketball Association games right now. His statistical averages as a rookie of 16.2 points, 4.5 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game were notable, but O'Neal's arrival led to a healthy increase in those departments.

While father Wade and his Miami Heat squad were away playing a game in Toronto, the rest of the Wade family, including wife and actress Gabrielle Union, 46, attended the annual Pride festival in suburban Miami Beach, Florida.

He will retire at the end of the season.

Another Twitter user addressed the negative comments some people were writing on social media: "I see people saying "so Dwayne Wade's son gay already?' Y'all do realize being lgbtq is not a choice you can be gay at 2 It's just who we are..." It's like you just blitz him with a hurricane of emotion for 25 minutes, and then say, 'Okay, now go win the game and be brilliant and put on a show in front of the home fans'.
