Former Miami Heat guard Norris Cole picked up some great lessons from franchise icon Dwyane Wade when the duo played together.
However, the greatest present Wade gave Cole came off the court. The three-time champion gifted Cole with a Porsche because the youngster made a shot from half court.

“You (Wade) said, ‘You make that shot, you got the keys to the Porsche as soon as we land,'” Cole recalled. “And so, as y’all know, I stepped up and made that shot and he got gassed up. Soon as we got back to Miami that boy was gassed up man.”
Cole, 31, played the first three-and-a-half seasons of his career with the Heat.
In fact, the backup guard played a pivotal role off the bench to help the Heat win back-to-back championships in 2012 and 2013.
While the guards were busy attaining greatness, they surely had lighthearted moments. For Cole, some materialized in the form of a luxury car.
Wade, who retired from the NBA following the conclusion of the 2018-19 season, was a tremendous veteran on the Heat. He was generous with his possessions, time and life lessons.
As for the current NBA season, there is no timetable for when the 2019-20 campaign will resume. However, in the meantime, more and more entertaining stories are beginning to be revealed.
