Dwyane Wade's move to Chicago still seems strange.

The 12-time All-Star has left South Beach after 13 years with the Miami Heat for a stint with his hometown franchise, the Chicago Bulls.

Reports suggested the Heat undervalued Wade during contract negotiations as they focused their attention on other pieces, and the 2006 Finals MVP clearly felt like it was time to experience something new.

It will be a strange experience for everybody to see the 34-year-old in a Bulls uniform, even for the man himself, and he admitted that he has been wearing his new franchise's gear every day so that he becomes accustomed to his new get up.

As per Variety, he said: "I may be a little different because I grew up a Bulls fan. So when I put on Chicago Bulls basketball gear - which I've put on every day since I got the gear because I'm trying to get used to it as well; don't get me wrong - but it rings a little different in my ear than probably it rings to the rest of the world."

Wade recently stated the only franchise he could've imagined playing for except the Heat was Chicago. An Illinois native, he grew up idolising Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and the all-conquering team of the '90s.

He now has his own chance to make history alongside Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo. The trio makes up a 'big three' of sorts, and their first aim will be taking the Bulls back into postseason action.

Nobody is really expecting them to challenge in the east, but they can certainly rekindle the floundering interest in the Bulls after a simply awful season for the franchise. Butler will be the main man of the team, and it will certainly be interesting to see how the trio of guards work together.
