We were particularly excited about this week’s episode featuring NBA champ Dwyane Wade. Dwyane is a thirteen-time NBA All-Star and gold medalist at the Beijing Olympics. He spent sixteen years playing for Miami Heat, and has several projects underway. With the recent release of his photographic memoir, Dwyane, he is touring in select cities. Previously, Dwyane penned A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball, and co-wrote the kids book, Shady Baby, with Gabrielle Union.

On the podcast, Dwyane joked that he hopes his memoir sells more than his wife’s book. His photographer has been documenting his life since 2010 and has snapped over 2 million photos. Dwyane wanted to share these photos with the world as part of his life’s journey and feels it is most opportune as he approaches his 40th birthday. The photos are accompanied with text and personal stories. He recommends it as a holiday gift for your loved ones. Then, Dwyane shared why he loves receiving functional gifts like phone chargers during the holidays.

On this episode, Dwyane shared about fatherhood. He started the wine line, D Wade Cellars, after getting into the wine industry eight years ago and making the industry more inclusive. Dwyane and Ellen like to stay curious and maintain an open mindset! Dwyane and his family create vision boards together each year, and for 2020, he had iconography representing balance in experiencing new and different things. He once heard that “comfort is the enemy of progress,” and Ellen totally agrees it’s important to keep trucking forward and provide encouragement for their respective kids. Dwyane spoke about his kid coming out as transgender as a 12-year-old.

Dwyane recently branched out and developed a shoe collection, Way of Wade. He also discussed his extensive career in the NBA and shared the moment he realized he was ready to retire.
