Dwyane Wade won three NBA championships in his career, all with Miami Heat. He spent the majority of his career with this team, but also had brief one-year stints in between with the Bulls and the Cavaliers. However, he retired as a Heat as he returned to Miami after spending two years away from them.

Only a few of the players from the 2003 NBA draft are still playing in the NBA, notably Carmelo Anthony and LeBron James. The 2003 draft was one of the most talented batches of players in the NBA. In fact, 15 players from that draft combined for 26 championships. However, Wade retired earlier than James and Carmelo and has been inactive since 2019.

Wade then quoted the tweet reminiscing about the good old days. However, this sparked reactions from NBA Twitter, who hinted at a comeback.
