Dwyane Wade Addresses If He’ll Ever Come Back to NBA Like Michael Jordan Did
- Updated: September 6, 2019
To celebrate the arrival of the highly anticipated NBA 2K20, Wade appeared in a video Q&A on the game’s official Twitter page.
One fan couldn’t help but ask Wade if he would consider coming out of retirement like fellow NBA great Michael Jordan did.

“I don’t know, I think these young players are way too fast and way too athletic for me,” Wade said. “You never say never, but I don’t think so.”
Wade’s answer shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. After a highly orchestrated final season in which he bid farewell to fans across the NBA, Wade seemed more than ready to lay back and enjoy retirement.
While Wade may not return to the court as an NBA player, there is a real possibility that he will one day work for the Heat or another NBA team in a front office role in the future.
In fact, per reports earlier this offseason, Wade offered insight into who he thought the Heat should target in June’s 2019 NBA Draft.
Whatever happens in Wade’s career going forward, it seems quite likely that he will forever be the most beloved Heat player throughout South Florida.
