Dwyane Wade Recalls Amazing Michael Jordan Story From His Rookie Season


Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade is celebrating his 42nd birthday today. To celebrate we’re throwing it back to some of his most amazing stories.

Wade’s hometown is the city of Chicago, a city that also is the basketball home of arguably the greatest of all time – Michael Jordan.

A while back, Wade recalled an incredible Michael Jordan story from his rookie season. Even though he was injured, Wade was so eager to play against his childhood hero, that he had to pay the price afterwards.


“I wasn’t going to play because I had hurt my wrist. I saw Jordan the night before. He’s like, ‘I can’t wait to see you play.’ And I was like, ‘Welp, guess I’m playing.’ And then I end up being in a cast for like 2 months.”
