Dwyane Wade

Best Review 2029

Dwyane Wade ($27,779,912) - Plays for Miami Heat (NBA). Wade became the biggest star in free agency, convincing LeBron James and Chris Bosh to sign with Miami. While Wade took less money to stay in South Beach, he should more than make up for it in endorsements.

LeBron leaving Cleveland for Miami shocked the Cleveland fanatics. We'll just have to wait if LeBron brings in what Miami paid for. Could it be the weather?
