Wade considering retirement date
Is Wade considering retiring?
Maybe, but it’s not something that’s going to happen.
Wade already has a scheduled date in his heart, but he is reluctant to announce it. He is only sharing it with his wife Gabriel Union. Anyway, he said that next season will not be his last season.
However, Wade is already 33 years old, so in any case, he is really not far from the day of retirement.
The Heat missed the playoffs this year. This is the second time Wade has missed the playoffs in his 12-year career. He will have five months to think about his next step, whether it is on or off the court.

In the past 40 years of the league, only Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Gary Payton have averaged 21.5 points per game at Wade’s age.
Yet Wade has missed 20 games this season with an injury that clearly bothers him.
“The thing that people like to talk about about my story is injuries,” Wade said. “It’s an issue, especially as you get older, you get tired of it. Talk about me being better on the court.
I’m proud of what I’ve done this season, looking at other 33-year-old players in the league, what they’re doing on the floor and what they can do, I know I can play better, but I think I’ve done well
