MIAMI — Dwyane Wade says that even a few years ago, he thought being 30 sounded old.
By that measure, he becomes old Tuesday.
Wade's life changed in just about every imaginable way in his 20s. He became a father, twice. He got divorced. He went to a Final Four at Marquette, got drafted by the Miami Heat, won an NBA championship, a finals MVP and a scoring title. He's estimated to have made over $100 million in on- and off-the-court deals, forever taking him out of the life of poverty he knew growing up.
So what's to come in his 30s?
Wade says he doesn't know — but he's eager to start finding out. One thing he believes is his NBA career is now closer to the finish than the start.
