Dwyane Wade: ‘I Have Made the Right Choice’

by July 07, 2016

Dwyane Wade is off to Chicago after 13 seasons, 12 All-Star selections, and of course, 3 NBA titles with the Miami Heat.

The future Hall of Famer grew disenchanted with the Heat after they wouldn’t increase their offer past two years and $40 million, and bolted to his hometown Bulls as a free agent.

Wade, 34, says he’s confident this is the right career move.

Per AP:

Dwyane Wade is going home, making what he called “an extremely emotional and tough decision” on Wednesday night to leave the Miami Heat after 13 seasons and sign with the Chicago Bulls.


“This was not an easy decision, but I feel I have made the right choice for myself and my family,” Wade wrote in a letter to Miami.


“Watching the Bulls growing up inspired me at an early age to pursue my dream of becoming a basketball player,” Wade wrote in the letter. “My most treasured memories were watching my dad play basketball on the courts of Fermi Elementary School and developing my game at the Blue Island Recreation Center. I have never forgotten where I came from and I am thankful to have an opportunity to play for the team that first fueled my love of the game.”
