Dwyane Wade has been enjoying the ride that has been the final season of his legendary career.
The three-time NBA champ, who hit a wild buzzer-beater last week against the Golden State Warriors, has been having fun swapping jerseys with opponents after each game. Usually it’s a big-name player, a close friend, etc.
But after Monday’s one-point win over the Atlanta Hawks, Wade made his jersey swap celebration a little more special as he found Hawks rookie guard Kevin Huerter, who grew up idolizing Wade and wears the No. 3 because of him, and surprised him by asking to swap jerseys.
Wade explained after:
“Earlier in the year a good friend told me about (Huerter) when he was younger that he used to wear my shoes and the No. 3 because of me, he looked up to me. So I knew I was going to surprise the last time we played them but I really like his game. Since preseason when we played him to all the way up to now he’s gotten so much better. So from one No. 3 to another, I thought I’d switch jerseys with him.”
Another pretty awesome move by D-Wade.
