As the season progresses, a fan favorite of the NBA ponders his future. Miami Heat Guard Dwyane Wade is unsure if he will play next season.
Earlier this season, Dwyane Wade signed a one-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Wade played 46 games with the Cavaliers, and started in 3 of those games. He came off the bench for the remaining 43. During the trade deadline, The Cavaliers traded Wade to the Heat in exchange for a second-round pick.
Wade has played 6 games with the Heat, and averages 11.7 points per game. Last night, Wade scored 27 points, and 15 came in the 4th quarter. He also made a clutch shot at the end of the game.
However, Wade is unsure of his future. Wade told Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald he is genuinely undecided if he wants to play next season.
“I don’t know,” Wade said. “I have told everybody around me that I am taking it after this season and go from there. It’s the first year I’ve ever went into the summer with that mind-set. I always went into it as a free agent or opting out of a deal to get another deal. This is the first summer I can say I’m just going into the summer and see how I feel and see the position this organization is in and go from there. I’m not really concerned with it, honestly. I’m cool with whatever I decide to do. It will be my decision.”
Dwyane Wade turned 36 last month. He has accomplished several things throughout his career. He is a 3-time NBA Champion, a 12-time NBA All-Star, and a Finals MVP in 2006. Wade is arguably the 3rd best shooting guard to play the game. He could retire now, and have nothing left to prove. However, the decision is up to him. He must decided what is best for himself, and also his family.
Dwyane Wade will finish the season, but only he knows what lies ahead for him.
