Dwyane Wade was born on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois to Dwyane, Sr. and Jolinda Wade. Wade attended Harold L. Richards High School in Oak Lawn, playing for the school's varsity basketball team. While he did not acquire much playing time during his second year, his stepbrother, Demetris McDaniel, was the star of the team. Wade grew four inches in the summer before his junior year and saw an increase in playing time, averaging 20.7 points and 7.6 rebounds per game. The following year, Wade averaged 27.0 points and 11.0 rebounds per game while leading his team to a 24–5 record. Wade was recruited by only three college basketball teams (Marquette University, Illinois State, and DePaul University) due to academic problems. Born January 17, 1982 (age 30) Chicago, Illinois Nationality: American/African American Listed Weight: 6ft 4in Listed Height: 220lbs
Wade chose to play college basketball for Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. During Wade's freshman year at Marquette, he was ineligible to play with the men's team due to a violation of the NCAA's Proposition 48. Wade sought tutoring to improve his writing skills in order to regain eligibility. When Wade became eligible to play the following year (2001–2002), he led the Golden Eagles in scoring. In 2002–03, Wade led Marquette in scoring again and Marquette won the school's first and only Conference USA championship with a 27–6 record. That season Wade led the Golden Eagles to the Final Four, the school's first appearance in the Final Four since winning the 1977 national championship. Wade's performance during the Midwest Regional Final of the 2003 NCAA Tournament was highly publicized by the national press. Against heavily favored, top-ranked and top-seeded Kentucky Wildcats, Wade recorded a triple-double with 29 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists. His triple double was the fourth in NCAA Tournament history. As a result, he elected to forgo his senior year at Marquette and enter the 2003 NBA draft. On February 3, 2007, almost four years after Wade played in his final collegiate game, Marquette retired his jersey at halftime of a game against Providence.
Drafted overall 5 th in the 1 st round of the 2003 NBA Draft to the Miami Heat. Wade had his breakout year in 2004 when the Miami Heat acquired All-Star center Shaquille ONeil. In the 2005-2006 season Dwyane Wade led the Miami Heat along with Shaquille ONeil to win the 2006 NBA championship in 6 games against the Dallas Mavericks which he was crowned the NBA Finals MVP. In 2010 Dwyane Wade, Lebron James, and Chris Bosh all signed for lower money to come together with the Miami Heat and formed the superstar trio, which they are referred as the Big 3.
