"I'll let a month, two months go by and then I'll see how I feel", the 40-year-old continued. Wade retiring with his original team would be a near-picture-perfect ending a fantastic career.

Wade is at the twilight of career at 36 years old, so he won't need to face this group much more as it matures, but his words can serve as a warning for the rest of the National Basketball Association.

"Right after the game, it was like, 'If this was our last time going against each other, then it's been everything and more, ' but I'll give you guys a more in-depth analysis of his career if he decides to hang 'em up". He took his game to a new level in the playoffs, scoring 16.6 points per game and adding 4.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists.

"I just don't know", said the Spurs veteran, whose game-winning performance two days earlier prompted Warriors coach Steve Kerr to suggest Ginobili should play on for two more years. Wade says he isn't ready to talk about that right now.
Wade's wife, Gabrielle Union, took to social media to address the topic of her husband's future.
The present time in Wade's career comes at a time where he sits at the top of the leaderboards in almost every statistical category in the Miami Heat organization. He has played 876 games for Miami, and is the team's all-time leader in points (20,473), assists (5,009), steals (1,433), field goals made (7,426) and attempted (15,267) and free throws made (5,226) and attempted (6,815).
