Dwyane Wade dropped the NBA after he’d had his way with it. With four NBA titles and probably a little high octane gas still left in his tank, Wade walked away in 2019 and became a bicoastal man. He and his wife Gabrielle Union now spend plenty of time in Hollywood as well as Miami, where Wade is a basketball legend.
Union, of course, is a movie star, so Hollywood is a natural fit. And Wade is catching up fast as a fellow fashionista. Long known for rocking some serious tunnel looks in his playing days, Wade has stepped up his game even further now that he’s closer to the Hollywood sign and the Pacific Ocean.

“Doesn’t get any colder than this,” he writes.
