The legendary draft class of 2003 featured the likes of LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade. These four players were destined for success from day 1 in the NBA and they proved that with their respective careers.
Although LeBron James is undisputedly the best player from this draft class, Dwyane Wade was arguably the second-best player in the class. Moreover, Wade got the sweet taste of success before others in his draft class.
In just his third season in the league, Wade helped the Miami Heat win their first NBA Championship in league history. Despite being in just the third season of his career, Wade played like a seasoned player that season and made fans fall in love with his game.
Later on, he would go on to win two more rings with LeBron James and Chris Bosh coming to the Heat to join forces with him. All things considered, Wade had a pretty great career and is surely a first-ballot Hall of Famer. But due to injuries, his career was somewhat derailed in the last few years. As a result, D-Wade retired from the league in 2019.
But it seems like the 3x NBA champion has teased his return to the league in a Michael Jordan way. Wade recently posted a video on his Instagram page where he flaunts his ability to still dunk the basketball with ease. Considering he is 40 years old, NBA fans loved the post.
Wade also teased his return to the league with the caption of that Instagram post. He wrote, "What age did Jordan come back?"
By the way, MJ returned to the league after his second retirement for two seasons with the Washington Wizards. At the time, Jordan was 38 years old, but still had some basketball left in him.
But his stint with the Wizards is remembered as the worst part of his career. So if Wade is eyeing an NBA comeback, he should keep in mind that this return could very well tarnish his legacy in the league.
