Do you ever wonder what it's like for an NBA star to give up professional basketball forever? Seriously, it's a big change. Giving up any job after over a decade is a big deal to anyone.
Dwyane Wade finds himself thinking about this very topic, as he closes out the final chapter of 17 seasons.
In discussing the end of his basketball playing career, he revealed it would not be an easy transition for him and will be resorting to talking things out with a professional when it is all said and done.
"I'll be in therapy. Seriously... I was always against someone that don't know me telling me how to live my life or giving me instructions. But I need someone to talk to about it. Because it is a big change."
As a 13x All-Star and 3x NBA Champion, basketball dominance has been a part of Wade's life for over 15 years. And although his ending was not the smoothest, the community has done their best to make Wade's final season something memorable.
Hopefully, we will see him again in some other pro-basketball field. Maybe an announcer? Maybe working for the Miami Heat as some sort of consultant? Whatever the case, the grind is still just getting started for him, as he looks forward on the next phase of life.
