Wade appeared as a guest on Live With Kelly this morning.
Last night Dwyane Wade informed the Chicago Bulls that he'd be leaving the Miami Heat to sign with his hometown team and today the 3x NBA champ shared some of his thoughts on Live With Kelly.
Wade, who was presumably running on no sleep, thanked the #HeatNation community for the 13 years of memories but he said he's excited to play for the team that he always envisioned playing for, the Chicago Bulls.
In a letter addressed to Miami, Wade said:
"From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank the Miami community and especially #HEATNATION for all of their love and support over the years. It has been truly incredible. I am deeply moved and appreciative of the positive messages from my fans expressing that they want what's best for me and I know they will support my decision."
"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. Many of my family members still live in Chicago and I am excited to return home to a city very close to my heart."
And as if there was any doubt, Chicago Bulls' forward Doug McDermott has assured D-Wade that his #3 is open for the taking.
