The Miami Heat will retire the jersey of Dwyane Wade during a series of events scheduled at American Airlines Arena the weekend of February 21, 22 and 23, 2020.
The L3GACY Celebration will kickoff at American Airlines Arena on February 21 with “The Flashback,” described as “a look back at Dwyane’s most legendary moments, as told by the people and players who lived them.” The Heat press release notes that this is a Season Ticket Member-only event at American Airlines Arena, but will broadcast live on Fox Sports Sun and AM 790 The Ticket.
The festivities will conclude on Sunday, February 23 with the debut screening of the Dwyane Wade/ESPN Films Documentary.
Wade will become the fifth Heat player to have his jersey retired, joining Chris Bosh (1), Tim Hardaway (10) Shaquille O’Neal (32) and Alonzo Mourning (33).
Wade played 16 seasons in the NBA, most of them with Miami. He helped the Heat win NBA titles in 2006, 2012 and 2013 and is the leading scorer in team history. The Heat previously announced that LeBron James eventually will have his Heat jersey retired as well.
