Dwyane Wade sees Heat revival as he roots on his Jazz, ‘it’s about business’
Miami Heat icon Dwyane Wade all in with Utah Jazz in NBA playoffs,.
As former Miami Heat icon Dwyane Wade takes his newfound sideline role as Utah Jazz part owner, it’s as if he is quoting from The Godfather, if not from Pat Riley, himself.
“It’s about business,” Wade said in a GQ profile about moving on from his Heat career to an ownership stake with the top-seeded team in the NBA playoffs.
For Wade, it is a branding change that has created somewhat of a double-take, as he advises Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell from his courtside seat, even when professing ongoing pride for the team he helped lead to three NBA championships.
“One thing I did for Miami in my 14-and-a-half-year career is give them all I had, Wade said in the GQ piece that came out this week. “They continue to embrace me and my family even though we are not living in that zip code. The love is always there for me, and I think it’s always gonna be there from the fans. We experienced something real together and it’s gonna last all of us a lifetime. I get it, man.
