Dwyane Wade is currently on his farewell tour.
After an incredible career in the NBA, Dwyane Wade is calling it quits. The Miami Heat star has won three NBA Titles and has consistently been one of the best players in the entire league. At this point, he is a lock to make the Hall of Fame and fans around the league are sad to see him go. Since it's his final season, Wade has been swapping jerseys with players around the league when he plays his last ever game against them. On Monday night after the Heat defeated the Atlanta Hawks 114-113, Wade surprised many as he swapped jerseys with an unlikely player in Kevin Huerter. Although, as Wade explained, there was a good reason for why he chose the Hawks rookie over everyone else.
"Earlier in the year, a good friend of mine told me about him when he was younger, that he used to wear my shoes, he wore number three because of me, he looked up to me," he explained to Fox Sports. "I knew I was going to surprise him the last time we played them but I really like his game. Since preseason, we played them all the way to now, he's gotten so much better so from one number three to another, I thought I'd switch jerseys with him."
Miami is now 10th in the Eastern Conference with a record of 29-34 and are still very much in contention for one of the final playoff spots.
