"Fresh off this National Basketball Association season, my fifteenth year, I sit back and think about that" Wade stated in a postgame press conference about the prospect of retiring. "Right after the game, it was like, 'If this was our last time going against each other, then it's been everything and more, ' but I'll give you guys a more in-depth analysis of his career if he decides to hang 'em up". They're next on my bucket list, making sure I'm there for them.
"I love Philly, but ain't gonna be no breaking news here in Philly", Wade said.
Wade's wife, Gabrielle Union, took to social media to address the topic of her husband's future. Wade admitted that he has thought about retiring, but said that he won't make an official decision until during the summer.
"I don't even want to go there". It was a move that helped the Cavaliers overhaul their roster, but also allowed Wade to head back home and finish what he started, as SB Nation talked more about. On that note, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald has reported the Heat will explore trading center Hassan Whiteside. He spent the previous 13 seasons with the Heat.
In the three games since Embiid returned to the Sixers, when Whiteside was on the court the Heat were outscored by 11.9 points per 100 possessions.More news: Facebook nears deal for Zuckerberg to face European Parliament
"Obviously, when you're brothers, you're around him every day, and then, he has to go back". I've always felt that's where his heart and his mind was, and I think it's going to be great for him. "When it happened so quickly, he fit right in, and that just speaks to his humility".
Wade showed he can still bring it in the playoffs, and averaged 18 points during the series. He scored 28 points in Game 2 to lift Miami to its only win in the series.
With Cleveland looking for a tuneup, there was almost a complete overhaul of the entire Cavaliers team, which sent Wade packing and heading back where it all began in Miami.
Wade was complimentary of the young Sixers after the series. "I was very thankful to the guys here that accepted me with open arms the way that they did", Wade told Reed after Game 5.
Now that we have seen a good amount of Wade highlights, it's time to dive into the final grade for his season with Miami.
