“I don’t have anything to do with that,” Wade said of the production and the procurement of talent. “I heard about it. I don’t know anything about it, though.”
Wade, 37, has extensive experience on the screen with appearances on multiple television shows, movies and advertisements. Yet, the three-time champion hasn’t been asked to play a part in the basketball production.
“He hasn’t reached out to me, so I don’t know nothing about it,” Wade said. “Plus, that’s his movie, that’s his thing. So if they reach out and it’s something that cool for me to do, then I’ll look into doing it. If not, then support the movie like always.”
While Wade deserves a spot in the upcoming film, it’s safe to see he’s not worried about being featured on TV. The veteran will have plenty of cameras on him as he prepares for his final home game on Tuesday and final career game on Wednesday.
“I don’t know if it’s the right thing for me to do or the right time,” he said. “I mean it’s going to be cool, I guess. But I don’t know anything about the movie, besides what Jordan did.
“I don’t know what they’re trying to accomplish. To say I’m just in because it’s Space Jam would be more than that.”
The 16-year pro is in the final season of his amazing career. While Wade is at the tail end of the long ride, the Heat’s all-time leading scorer has had a phenomenal season. Wade is averaging 14.7 points, 4.1 assists and 3.9 rebounds per game this season.
