Want to know more about Dwyane Wade? Here is D Wade's story:
From unheralded draft pick to the MVP of the 2006 NBA Finals, and now adding "2008gold medalist" to his list of accomplishments, Dwyane Wade has experienced a whirlwindcareer in the last eight years.
In his first season (2003-04), the Chicago-area native who also flashed his athletic brilliance for Marquette University, achieved NBA All-Rookie Team status with the Miami HEAT. Before he knew it, Dwyane was an Olympian, representing the United States in the 2004 Athens Summer Games and recently brought home the GOLD representing the USA in the 2008 Olympics set in Beijing.
WADE IN THE NBA, Dwyane Wade joined the HEAT as the fifth pick of the 2003 NBA Draft. In 63 games, Dwyane averaged a solid 16.2 points in 35 minutes per game, and was one of the reasons the HEAT emerged as an unlikely #4 seed in the 2004 playoffs. In 2006, Dwyane led his team to the city's first ever NBA Championship and five years later, he helped them reach the 2011 NBA Finals but unfortunately lost to the Mavericks in 6 games. In 2012, he, LeBron, and Chris helped won its 2nd title in franchise history. Dwyane Wade got his 2nd ring while LeBron and Bosh got their 1st.
Wade in MARQUETTE
With a similar meteoric rise in college, Dwyane catapulted Marquette to the 2003 Final Four.
In two years at Marquette he became one of the most decorated players in school history where he averaged 19.7 points per game, had 150 steals and 79 blocked shots. That was upstaged only by Dwyane's history making NCAA Tournament triple-double (against No. 1 ranked Kentucky) to take the Golden Eagles to the Final Four for the first time since 1977.
The first Marquette player since 1978 to earn Associated Press First Team All-America, a United States Basketball Writers First Team All-American and a National Association of Basketball Coaches Second Team All-American, Wade was a finalist for the Wooden, Naismith and Oscar Robertson awards. He burst onto the national radar when ESPN The Magazine nominated him in 2002 as Shooting Guard of the Year. Wade was the 2003 Conference USA Player of the Year, and Defensive Player of the Year for what would be his last season in college.
From appearing in national TV campaigns in his hugely popular T-Mobile commercials, or designing his signature WADE shoe to modeling for Sean John; Dwyane has quickly crossed over into the world of sports and entertainment.
Known for his charismatic personality and charm, Dwyane is one the most highly sought after celebrity endorsers, creating a portfolio which includes Jordan Brand, T-Mobile, Pepperidge Farm, Mission Products and Gatorade to name a few. Whether its posing for the cover of GQ Magazine, Esquire, Men's Health, Ocean Drive or ESPN the Magazine, to being named one of People's Magazine top 50 Most Beautiful People, Dwyane recognizes his true accomplishments go far beyond the basketball court and fashion magazines. Through the establishment of the Wade's World Foundation in 2004, Dwyane's mission has been to leave the world a better place than he found it.
A Father First by Dwyane Wade:
I'm a Two-Time NBA Champion, Eight-Time All-Star, an Olympic Gold Medalist—but my greatest accomplishment is being a dad. Many know my story on the court, but few know of my story as a father. In A FatherFirst: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball, I take you through my journey, as a kid who worked hard through the struggle to keep his dreams alive in Robbins, IL, overcoming adversity and making my way to the big stage in the NBA. But this is not just about a basketball journey; this is about a Fatherhood journey. In my book, I open up about things I've experienced that have never been expressed before. You'll learn more about why I took the stand to be a responsible father to my two sons. As a single dad with sole custody, I've learned so much. It seemed fitting to share my story and lessons with the world and encourage other parents to fully connect with their children to be the best parents they can be. With my book, I hope to do just that.
Follow me on my journey as a Father First.
