How Dwyane Wade once lost a new Porsche to Norris Cole

Heat, Dwyane Wade, Norris Cole

Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade has more than just a leg up on former teammate Norris Cole in terms of accolades, fame and notoriety.

However, Cole did win a lucrative bet off Wade during their days in Miami, one that resulted in Wade gifting Cole a brand-new Porsche.

Cole and Wade recounted a time when “Flash” was willing to put his Porsche up after Cole said he would nail a half-court shot. Of course, Cole drained the attempt, forcing a disgruntled Wade to give up the luxury car.

Cole was Wade’s teammate for three-plus years in Miami. The former Cleveland State product helped the Heat win back-to-back titles in 2012 and 2013 as one of the key role players in the backcourt.

Cole also spent some time playing overseas after his NBA career ended in 2017, and he still has close ties to the Miami community.

Meanwhile, Wade’s first year in retirement has been a tell-all of past NBA stories. He previously told a story about the first time he met Allen Iverson as a rookie, and has also been very vocal about the impact the late Kobe Bryant had on his career.

Of course, Wade has also been willing to speak about the more light-hearted moments of his NBA career, even if he got the other end of the stick in this particular scenario.

The Heat have ushered in a new era post-Wade, with Jimmy Butler as the new face of the franchise. But both Cole and Wade can still look back fondly on the days when their Heat teams ruled the NBA.
