DWYANE Wade conducted a surprise question and answer session on Twitter where the Miami Heat star candidly gave his take on retirement, his health, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant.
Wade, who has agreed to play for the Heat for one more year for $20 million, was said to have been attending to a personal affair at a Dade County Department of Motor Vehicles office on Monday morning (Tuesday, Manila time) when he decided to host a Q&A for his Twitter followers.
Haven't done this in a while.. 30min Q&A let's go..— DWade (@DwyaneWade) July 6, 2015
It was a frank discussion between the 33-year-old combo guard who gamely replied to both fans and detractors.
One thing Wade said was he is not retiring any time soon.
When I can no longer play..averaging 20 plus a game at 33 yrs old.. I think I'll stay around for alil while.. https://t.co/jZQblxjKAU— DWade (@DwyaneWade) July 6, 2015
He even took the time to respond to a trash-talker who asked him about former Heat teammate LeBron James.
I haven't been carried since my mother gave birth to me.. https://t.co/J4Mm4VKktL— DWade (@DwyaneWade) July 6, 2015
Wade also offered his opinion on Kobe Bryant and whether he is willing to play with the Los Angeles Lakers star, who some claim is a difficult teammate.
I have before..and why wouldn't you want to play with one of the games greatest winners??? The name of the game is.. https://t.co/3cnCdGVogU— DWade (@DwyaneWade) July 6, 2015
On a lighter note, Wade also offered to 'yell' at Heat point guard Mario Chalmers; that his knees were fine after 13 seasons of pounding; he prefers pork sausage over bacon; "Live in your moment" is a quote that he lives by; and that the necessary attributes for an NBA championship team are "B4 this year... Kobe, (Tim Duncan)or Me".
Before he finished the Q&A so he can "go back to enjoying my vacation", Wade was asked if he deserves to be the greatest Miami Heat player ever, he answered with a resounding, "YES".
