It's September 17th and up until now, we didn't know where (or if) we'd see Dwyane Wade play on an NBA court again.
Finally, thanks to an announcement a few hours ago, we can finally breathe, knowing Wade is primed for a return to the Heat. In what he is calling his "last dance," Wade told the world that he would be re-signing with the Miami Heat for this upcoming season.
"I've always did things my way," Wade an emotional on the social media video he released Sunday evening. "Whether they've been good or whether they've been bad, I got here because I've done things the way I feel is right for me and right for my family. And what I feel is right ... I feel it's right to ask you guys to join me for one last dance, for one last season."
"This is it. I've given this game everything that I have, and I'm happy about that, and I'm going to give it for one last season."
The Heat aren't expected to be in contention for a Championship this year, but they are definitely an up-and-coming playoff team, with plenty of reason for optimism.
With Wade now on board for a one-year, $2.4 million contract, there's even more reason to be excited about what is already shaping up to be a fantastic season of basketball.
