Dwyane Wade had an illustrious 16-year career in the NBA capturing the title with the Miami Heat three times and being one of the greatest athletes to put on the Heat Jersey. He retired from the NBA after the NBA

Wade was honored by the tribute stating:

“I’ve been blessed to spend 16 years of my life playing the game I love at the highest-level, and to culminate my career by joining NBA greats as an NBA 2K Legend Edition cover star makes me incredibly proud. My family and I love NBA 2K, and I’m truly grateful to all of the fans who have watched me, and played as me, throughout the years.”
