Dwyane Wade Joins Local Pickup Game In NYC: Video

Dwyane Wade is among the NBA stars in New York City this week for the start of New York Fashion Week, and like LeBron James and Ben Simmons, he was looking to put in some work at a local gym. Wade still has not announced if he'll be returning to the Miami Heat next season but, as the saying goes, ball is life. 

Wade took to twitter on Wednesday to ask his 7.8m followers, "Where the local hoopers at NYC!?!? The after work hoopers." According to the Miami Herald, Wade then received an Instagram message from Tom Weingarten, who runs social media for Overtime. Shortly thereafter, the three-time NBA champion found himself at Chelsea Pier 60 in Manhattan balling against a group of average Joes.

“He answered immediately,” Weingarten said, according to the Miami Herald. “He wanted to surprise some local fans and do it for them. He said, ‘I’m going to get a haircut and then go to Chelsea Piers.’ He was proactive about it.”
