Heat’s Dwyane Wade is ready for ‘One Last Dance’
Wednesday will be Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade’s final opening-night game of his legendary career, and the future Hall of Famer is ready for the journey awaiting him.
Wade and the Heat take on the Orlando Magic at the Amway Center. The Chicago native took to Twitter to commemorate his final NBA season opener:

After contemplating retirement all summer, Wade re-signed with the Heat on a one-year deal worth the veteran’s minimum a week before training camp started. He’s going to get the farewell tour former Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant got during the 2015-16 season. The Heat’s career leader in points, assists, steals and games played figures to get a lot of love in road arenas this season.
Wade began his career in 2003 and has been a superstar ever since. He has won three championships, was the 2006 Finals MVP, and has made the All-Star team 12 times. When it’s all said and done, Wade will probably be regarded as the third-best shooting guard in NBA history behind Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan and Bryant.
Dwyane Wade averaged 12.0 points in 21 regular-season games with the Heat last year. He began the 2017-18 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, but was traded to Miami at the 2018 February trade deadline.
