Shaquille O'Neal feels a certain way about Dwayne Wade's farewell tour.
"I’m jealous," Shaq told the Sun-Sentinel. "I’m jealous right now. I wanted the whole farewell tour ... I remember watching Kareem’s and Magic’s and Bird’s farewell tour. Every great, historic player deserves one. D-Wade is a historic player, and there’s a lot of barbershop talk of him being the second or the third best two-guard in the game. And when you bring his name up, there’s nobody even close, as far as three, four, five, six and all that. So he is one of the top two-guards to play the game. I’m happy for him that he can have this farewell tour, especially here in Wade County.”
Wade posted a video earlier this month and said he'd be playing for the Miami Heat for one last season before he retires. He played for the team for 13 plus seasons and won the NBA Championships, including one with Shaq in 2006.
"I feel it's right to ask you guys to join me for one last dance, for one last season," said Wade. "I've given this game everything that I've had, and I'm happy about that. And I'm gonna give it for one last season, everything I have."
In February, Wade was traded back to the Heat after playing for the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers.
In regards to his retirement, it's safe to assume that he'll look forward to having more privacy and not have stories about his salad being tossed, as his wife Gabrielle Union once revealed.
