Wade announced his official decision with a 10-minute Youtube video titled “One Last Dance…” explaining why he has decided to return for a final season with the Heat.
“I feel it’s right to ask you guys to join me for one last dance, for one last season,” said an emotional Wade. “This is it. I’ve given this game everything that I have, and I’m happy about that, and I’m gonna give it for one last season everything else that I have left. And when I walk away I’m still gonna love it….Let’s enjoy it. Let’s have some joy through this last season. Let’s push this young team over the hump.”
The 2018-19 season will truly be a special one for Heat fans as they get to properly appreciate a farewell tour with the greatest Heat player in franchise history.
