Ahead of his final regular-season game in Miami vs. Philadelphia on Tuesday night, the Miami Heat and Budweiser have teamed up to create a touching tribute video to portray a few of Wade’s fan interactions.
Emotions were captured in a Budweiser commercial that was created to capture Wade’s off-court impact. Wade thought he was showing up to meet fans for the commercial. But Wade soon learned they’re actually waiting with items to swap with him, and they tell the story of how Wade has impacted their lives through those items.
“Flash,” as Wade came to be known, has been swapping jerseys with various players all throughout his final campaign in the league, including Dirk Nowitzki, Paul George and LeBron James.
Wade, now 37 years of age, racked up several accolades over the course of his career, including three championship titles, 13 All-Star nods and two All-NBA First-Team selections. He was also named to the NBA’s All-Defensive Second Team on three occasions.
