Gabrielle Union speaks on Dwyane Wade's ability

Published Add your comment

Dwyane Wade is the newest member of the Chicago Bulls. He left the Miami Heat, a team he had been with for his entire NBA career, to go home to Illinois.

As a kid from Robbins, he has spoken about the desire to play for his home team numerous times. The guard gave the club major consideration in the summer of 2010 before deciding to resign in South Beach alongside Chris Bosh and LeBron James.

Now, Wade has decided to follow the King’s lead and return to his hometown to fulfill his personal dreams. Chicago has reason to be excited after a disappointing campaign last season.

The future Hall of Famer is beginning a new chapter in his professional career with this move. His wife, actress Gabrielle Union, hopes that he leaves some of his bad habits that he has developed over time in Miami behind.

Union has often been critical of some perceived lack of effort by her husband. These sorts of complaints are probably commonplace in most marriages but her statements are about his work on the court rather than in the household.

She told ESPN: “It hurts me to the core when he doesn’t get back on defense. My husband is damn effective at what he does. He can do what he did last season for the next few years, easily.”

Those thoughts are strong support even if the beginning looks like a complaint. The 12-time All-Star is known for trying to draw fouls on opposing defenders and sometimes that leads to his man scoring in transition.

The former Marquette guard is still a terror when rolling to the rim late in his career. The technique has worked so far and I wouldn’t expect it to be going anywhere anytime soon. But, Wade still might want to heed his wife’s advice to ensure his own happiness off the court.
