Biography

Though casual basketball fans might shout "LeBron" when one mentions the Miami Heat, the truth is, the franchise has been sculpted by Dwyane Wade, Miami's $20 million man who brought the franchise its first NBA title in 2006, and comprises a third of Miami's Big 3 behind Lebron James and Chris Bosh. The nine-time All-Star has countless accolades and playoff appearances, but at the ripe age of 31, doesn't seem to be slowing down one bit, bringing yet another championship to a Miami team he helped rebuild out of years of mediocrity.
