Dwyane Wade was first drafted into the NBA in 2003, where he was taken fifth overall by the Miami Heat. A star from his incredible rookie year, Wade’s determination and dedication to the game made him one of the biggest NBA stars of the 2000′s era. He also has three hard fought NBA championships under his belt, and averaged just under 25 points a game for his entire career, making him one of the best scorers and offensive players of his time.
The Miami Heat is a relatively young franchise in the National Basketball Association that was founded as an expansion team in 1988. In just 25 years the Heat has made 17 playoff appearances, won 10 division titles, four conference titles, and three NBA Championships. Considering Miami won two-consecutive championships and is currently competing for its third straight title, the Heat is the marquee franchise of the NBA.
