Miami Heat guard and future first-ballot Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade will play in his final NBA game Wednesday night against the Nets in Brooklyn.
After seeing his Heat eliminated from playoff contention Tuesday night, Wade has seen a ton of accolades thrown in his direction.
The best one might come from teammate Justise Winslow, who sported this absolutely amazing jacket ahead of the game at the Barclays Center.
This inside of Winslow’s jacket sports Wade’s jerseys from both his high school and college days.
Before he was known as a championship talent with the Heat, starting all the way back in 2003, Wade had a tough go at it during his high school days at Harold L. Richards High School in Illinois.
A star for the football team, Wade didn’t see much varsity action until he grew four inches heading into his junior year. He dominated the competition that year.
Despite this, he was recruited by only three schools before deciding on Marquette. Wade ended up putting that school on the map. The rest is history.
What a great way for Winslow to pay his respects to potentially the greatest teammate he’ll ever suit up with.
