Video: Dwyane Wade joins pickup game with local hoopers in Los Angeles
Dwyane Wade has yet to decide on his NBA future, but the future Hall of Famer took to the court to play in a pickup game in Los Angeles. Wade posted a few videos to his Instagram where he was just toying with his opponents. Wade can be seen dunking on his diminutive defenders with no remorse:
At the very least, these Instagram videos show that Wade still has a true passion for the game. He may not be playing against much talent, but he’s clearly having some fun out there. It had to be a fun moment for the guys he was playing against as well. Even though they didn’t have much chance at stopping Wade, saying you guarded a future Hall of Famer has to be exciting.
Wade is still mulling over a return to the Miami Heat next season. The Heat legend spent a season-plus in Chicago and Cleveland before returning to Miami last season. He has already made it clear that he will either retire or play for the Heat. That being said, he’ll need to make a decision soon as training camp begins in a few weeks.
The 36-year-old has lost a step in the last few years, but he’s still capable of going off at any moment. Last playoffs, he exploded in Game 2 against the Philadelphia 76ers (Miami’s only victory), scoring 28 points on 11-for-16 shooting. His savviness and playoff experience could be vital for the Heat.
NBA fans all over are hoping that Wade returns to the court this season — and not just in a pickup game.
