Heat SG Dwyane Wade hasn’t had any moments this season where he’s thought about changing retirement decision
Sorry Miami Heat fans, but Dwyane Wade isn’t going to have a change of heart about his retirement decision, as he told reporters on Friday there hasn’t been any moment this season where he’s thought about changing his mind and coming back for another year.
Before the 2018-19 season started, Dwyane Wade announced this season was going to be his last year in the NBA. The future Hall of Famer is playing pretty well this season for a 37-year-old, but Wade says his decision is final and that he’s enjoying his “One Last Dance” tour.

In 46 games this season for the Heat, Dwyane Wade is averaging 14.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists per contest. The 13-time All-Star is shooting 43.3 percent from the field, 32.3 percent from beyond the arc and 69.7 percent from the free-throw line.
Since it’s his last season in the league, Wade has been added to the All-Star team by NBA commissioner Adam Silver. It was a nice gesture by Silver, as fans will get to see D-Wade one final time in the world’s greatest pickup game.
Wade’s pal, Heat forward Udonis Haslem, recently said he’s undecided on his future. Haslem, like Wade, said before the season started he was going to retire after this year. Miami fans were hoping that Wade would have second thoughts as well, but the Chicago native has made up his mind.
