It’s just one of the many tribute videos that Dwyane Wade has received throughout his retirement tour. As this is his final season in the NBA, fans and foes alike are out there to show some love and respect for what he has done.
Many are claiming that Dwyane Wade is the third-best shooting guard in history, right behind Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. He rose to prominence when he single-handedly carried the Heat to a championship in 2006 when they beat the Dallas Mavericks in six games.
It was a legendary performance and a remarkable achievement. Prior to winning the championship, all eyes were on his 2003 NBA Draft batchmates, LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. Critics tagged them as the next faces of the league.
But out of the blue came Dwyane Wade. In just his third year in the league, he carried his team in the NBA Finals. Not only did he showcase his basketball abilities, but he forged his name onto the record books as one of the best clutch performers of all time.
