Miami Heat basketball star Dwyane Wade has been going through a tough phase in the 11th year of his terrific career due to frequent injuries and limited playing time. While many are speculating whether his time in the game is nearing an end, the player still holds immense value to his team and is far from being finished. He showed his mettle in the finals against the San Antonio Spurs last year, and he is a vital cog in the Heat’s plans for winning another NBA title this season to achieve the much-vaunted three-peat.

Wade’s love for an aggressive and offense-oriented game is gradually influencing his abilities on the court and reducing his impact on the game at critical times, and the Heat need to take an even closer look at his playing time while maintaining the the advantage of having a player of his caliber.

Wade’s love for the game should see him make the necessary adjustments and reinvent his career, rather than getting forced out against his wish.

When Wade does decide to call it a day on his career, however, here are five exciting career options that he can look forward to pursuing.
