Heat honored Dwyane Wade with ‘Flashback Friday’ sale
The Miami Heat recently allowed franchise icon Dwyane Wade to leave to his hometown Chicago Bulls. Wade signed a 2-year, $47.5 million contract with his new team after the relationship between the 12-time all-star and his franchise home quickly melted during free agency despite spending all 13 years of his career thus far in South Beach.
Heat president Pat Riley reportedly didn’t contact their decade-long franchise icon throughout the entire free agency, and the disrespected superstar shooting guard ultimately was fed up with the low contracts offered by his incumbent franchise. Wade talked about the hard decision during his guest host appearance on “Live With Kelly,” but ultimately believed that Chicago provided the most respect to the veteran and the best opportunity for his family.
In response to their franchise icon’s departure, Heat reporter Ira Winderman tweeted that the Heat organization decided to honor Wade with a complete firesale of all Wade-related products, going for $13.00 to commemorate the 13 incredible seasons the shooting guard wore a Miami uniform.
Heat announce Friday "all Dwyane Wade merchandise will be sold for $13.00 at all The Miami HEAT Store locations." For his 13 Heat seasons.
