When he first began his studies at Marquette University, he joined the basketball team but unfortunately could not play due to his low test scores.
However, he did not let this stop him from playing the game; he remained by the team’s side and advised them on defenses and scoring. In the years to come, he made sure to do well in school.
Dwyane immediately became the best player on his team averaging around 17 points per game. He led his team to win the Conference USA and to be one of the final four at the NCAA tournament.
In 2003 he said goodbye to his Marquette team and was drafted by the Miami Heat team in the first round that year. He made his NBA debut in the 2003-2004 season and scored an average of 16.2 points each game.
Since Miami Heat was a considerably weak team before Wade; he was the very first player ever on the team to get an NBA honor. Eastern Conference named him the player of the year in 2004 and that very same year he led his team to win a bronze medal in the Olympics.
During his second season on the team Wade significantly improved and was averaging around 24 points per game. In 2006 he led the Miami Heat to an NBA victory.
After a severe knee injury, he continued to play, but his numbers were beginning to drop significantly, and after surgery, in the 2012-2013 season he still had the lowest point average of his entire career.
After struggling for so many years on the Miami Heat team, he decided to leave and sign a two-year contract with the Chicago Bulls. His debut appearance on the Chicago Bulls was in the 2016-2017 season.
