MIAMI – Dwyane Wade is back in South Florida, and hundreds of Miami Heat fans got early morning wake-up calls in an effort to keep him there for many years to come.
The six-time All-Star landed at Miami International Airport a little after 8 a.m. Monday.
Unfortunately, his welcome-home party of about 50 people was taking place at a different location.
The Heat leaked his travel plans overnight, telling fans to greet Wade at the Signature Air terminal at the airport. But Wade flew commercial and missed the impromptu welcome-home celebration.
One of the triumvirate of marquee stars in this NBA free-agent megaclass, Wade could decide this week between the Heat, the New Jersey Nets, the New York Knicks and his hometown team, the Chicago Bulls.
