Wade revealed in the documentary that cops had raided his home in Chicago one day when he was a child, asking for his mother, who had been a heroin addict at the time. They the put a gun to the back of his head and forced him to uncover her whereabouts.
“D. Wade: Life Unexpected” was broadcast at AmericanAirlines Arena where approximately 2,000 fans gathered to watch the ESPN special during an exclusive screening.
The documentary showed Wade’s life and journey from his Chicago roots to becoming a three-time NBA champion and arguably the greatest player in franchise history.
“I want to tell the story [of my career] to wrap it up,” Wade told the crowd ahead of the showing of the film. “I feel like you can take something away from my story because it’s not just about the game of basketball.”
Wade’s documentary capped off the three-day “L3GACY Celebration” to honor the Heat legend. The weekend-long tribute included “The Flashback,” a two-hour show at AmericanAirlines Arena that featured highlights, stories and photos of his career on Friday and his memorable jersey retirement ceremony on Saturday.
