Dwyane Wade Gets Amazing Gift And Praises From Gregg Popovich

 

This past summer, Dwyane Wade revealed that he would retire after the season. This is pretty unfortunate, as he continues to play on a very high level.

Last night, Wade played his final game in San Antonio against the Spurs, a team he met in the NBA Finals, twice. Before the game, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich shared a moment with Wade and gave him the most amazing farewell present; a box topped with a bow, in the Spurs’ colors. In the box?! Signed jerseys of Spurs icons Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginóbili.

 

 

After the game, Popovich praised the Heat star and talked about what makes Dwyane Wade so iconic:

 

“He certainly is an iconic an iconic figure as far as NBA basketball goes. And it’s not just because of the way he played. He played hard. He played to win. He had a ferocious attitude on the court. But it was matched with a wonderful smile and a great understanding of the world and community off the court. I think that’s what made him so special; a coveted teammate, somebody that everybody enjoyed playing with, a guy that cared about more than just basketball. That’s what makes him iconic in my mind.”
