If you ask him, Dwayne Wade probably doesn’t even remember his ex-wife’s name (and we don’t either), even though they got divorced in 2010. Dwayne has come a long way and is happy with the Miami Heat especially now that Le Bron James is in town. USA Today reports:
SOUTH MIAMI, Fla. — Dwyane Wade had some trying moments in 2010. The fight for custody of his kids continues, his divorce became final and he nearly left the Miami Heat.Others, he knows, have it so much worse.
Wade spent Tuesday reaching out to those in need, taking 10 families on a shopping spree and visiting sick kids at a children’s hospital with his Heat teammates. He’s done similar things around the holidays for years, and said he’s grown to appreciate it now more than ever.
“Moments like this and times like this really click and make you understand what life is about,” he said. “When you get opportunities to be out in the community and change people’s lives, it makes everything else feel like, ‘Ah, so what?’ This is what’s important.”
The Heat have emphasized charitable events, especially around holidays, for years.
All players and many staffers visited two hospitals Tuesday, a scheduled day off for the team. Parents who didn’t know what awaited at Baptist Children’s Hospital couldn’t believe it when Wade, Jamaal Magloire, Carlos Arroyo, Eddie House, Juwan Howard, Joel Anthony and Dexter Pittman arrived. Other players, including LeBron James and Chris Bosh, visited another hospital.
