Dwyane Wade Responds to Comeback Rumors: ‘I’m retired asf’

“Is Dwyane Wade coming back?” That’s the question that’s been thrown around by fans across all social media platforms. This all started when Wade was asked about coming back in a recent interview. In a column by Arash Markazi of the Los Angeles Times, Wade stated that he plans to stay in shape and that he wouldn’t rule out an NBA comeback.

“I’m done, but my trainer is going to keep me in shape just in case something happens,” Wade said, smiling. “I’m going to stay in shape because you never know. Never say never.”

A day later, Wade clarified what he meant through Twitter, posting a picture with his baby daughter Kaavia James.

While Wade showed last season he could still play, the Miami Heat legend is ready for life after NBA Basketball. The 37-year old relocated to Los Angeles to be closer to where his wife Gabrielle Union works. Wade plans to take on more family responsibilities, including attending his son Zaire Wade’s basketball games at the Sierra Canyon high school.

The Heat’s all-time leading scorer will stay connected to the game of basketball though. Wade already has held his annual D. Wade Invitational camp with NBA players and will continue to provide mentorship for the players.

“The cool thing is I have a great relationship with all the players,” Wade said. “It’s already something I do. I’ve been working out in the gym with guys like Ben Simmons and Josh Hart this summer in L.A. I’m able to pass my knowledge down to them, so it’s not necessary for me to have an official role with a team to do that. I love the game of basketball, and any time I can get in the gym with one of these younger players, I’m going to do it no matter what.”
