Dwayne Wade Bio

Dwayne Wade

Most star athletes are noticed for their talent at a young age. Not Dwayne Wade. It wasn't until his junior year in high school that he started to come into his own as a basketball player. He chose to attend Marquette University, one of only three colleges that was interested in him.


Practice Makes Perfect

Dwayne already owns an NBA championship ring, has played in five All-Star Games and has been the top scorer in the league once. Because he's accomplished so much in such a short amount of time, you'd think he doesn't practice much anymore, right? No way. Even in the summer, Dwayne can often be found on the court, working to improve his game.


Three Pointers

Dwayne's drive to improve his game definitely paid off. In the summer of 2008, he practiced his three-pointer shot from beyond the arc for hours at a time. not only did he sink more three balls than ever before in the 2009 season, he also scored more points than any player in the league.


Dwayne's Game

Born in Chicago on January 17, 1982, Dwayne is called Flash because of his lightning-quick moves that let him blow past a defender. When he gets close to the basket, he can twist and turn his body in a way that lets him get off a shot - and usually make it.


In 2009, Dwayne played more minutes, scored more points, dished out more assists and blocked more shots than at any other point in time in his career. Don't expect him to stop there, though. As Dwayne proves, if you want to be successful, dedication and determination are excellent qualities to have.
