Before re-signing with the Heat two offseasons ago, Dwyane Wade took a trip down memory lane, which wasn't exactly easy for the two-time NBA champion.
Wade, a Chicago native, visited with the Bulls in 2010, and he admits he immediately began feeling like a kid again, even throwing on a Bulls No. 3 jersey.
"I'm a Chicago guy and I grew up idolizing the Chicago Bulls, idolizing Michael Jordan and wanted to wear that jersey. So the day I went for the Chicago visit and they gave me the No. 3 jersey, I mean, that day messed me up," Wade said during an interview with CSN Chicago. "I went back home and I had the jersey on and, I mean, I turned into a kid again."
Wade considers his decision in free agency that year to be one of the hardest he's ever had to make in his life. Fortunately for Heat fans, his love for Miami and the organization won out, and he went on to form a superteam alongside LeBron James and Chris Bosh. You know the rest.
But D-Wade alongside a healthy D-Rose? That would have made for some interesting happenings in the Windy City.
