Dwyane Wade is one of the best point guards that the NBA has ever seen. His ability to drive to the rim and finish despite taking excessive physical contact puts him in a rare breed of point guards along with the likes of Allen Iverson and prime Derrick Rose(2010-2011). After retiring from the NBA in 2019, Dwyane Wade has been actively working on his different business ventures. However, he also maintains a good work-life balance as he is often spotted spending time with his family at public events and places.

In an interview with Shannon Sharpe , he admitted that he “tried to break up” with his now-wife out of guilt, instead of coming clean. However, he did come clean to his now-wife about his conceiving his son Xavier, now 9, with “Basketball Wives” star Aja Metoyer. 

He further mentions in the interview how blessed he was to have his wife, Gabrielle Union-Wade, stick with him through this tough phase. Today, the couple is in a much better place mentally and emotionally.
