Dwyane Wade claps back at Miami Heat fan who disapproves of him wearing Utah Jazz gear

2 Min Read

Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade received some criticism from a fan for wearing Utah Jazz gear in a recent photo.


Wade, who is a part of the ownership group in Utah now that his playing career is over, had a legendary response back to the fan to explain why he doesn’t have to exclusively rep the Heat.

Wade played the majority of his NBA career with the Heat, and he’s certainly one of the greatest players in franchise history. However, he also spent time with the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers during his playing career.

Now, Wade has transitioned into being a part of the management side of things with Utah. Naturally, he’s going to support the team that he has an ownership stake in.

It’s hard to argue with Wade’s response to the fan, as many people have switched companies or professions in their own careers. While Wade will always be remembered as a Heat player, one can’t write the story of his career, especially his epic return to Miami, without his time with the Bulls and Cavs being included.

In his storied NBA career, Wade averaged 22.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game while shooting 48.0 percent from the field. He won a scoring title in the 2008-09 season and was an All-NBA selection eight times in his career.

Wade was one of the members of Miami’s iconic Big 3 with Chris Bosh and LeBron James. He won three NBA titles with the Heat and earned 13 All-Star nods.

There are so many memorable moments of Wade’s career in Miami, including several game-winning shots.

There’s no doubt that Wade has an amazing legacy as a player, and he’s looking to add to that with Utah as an owner. As much as fans want to see him in Heat gear for life, they have to appreciate this stage of Wade’s career as well.
