Dwyane Wade Drops Huge Hint About Playing for Miami Heat in 2018-19 Season
- Updated: August 1, 2018
On Tuesday night, the Marquette University product uploaded a video to Instagram of highlights from him and his son, Zaire Wade, playing in a pickup game. The caption he used for the video was “16 and year 16! #TheWades.” The first mention of the number 16 represents Zaire’s age. The “year 16” refers to Dwyane Wade himself because if he were to come back to the Heat next season, it would be his 16th season in the NBA.
The 36-year-old said, back in February, that he would stay with the Heat until retirement. Wade has also mentioned that his family would be the deciding factor in any decision he makes. According to Heat president Pat Riley, Wade will come to a decision regarding his future in the next couple of weeks and has already been offered a spot on the team.
After being re-acquired by the Heat in a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers in February, the three-time champion proved that he could still play at a high level, averaging 12.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 22 games for the Heat. He was even better in the playoffs, raising those averages to 16.6, 4.2, and 3.6, respectively.
If Wade were to retire, he would finish his career as one of only six players to lead an NBA team in points, steals, assists and wins.
