The incredible story behind Dwyane Wade’s surprise jersey swap decision

Kevin Huerter grew up idolising Dwyane Wade.

The Atlanta Hawks rookie even wears the No. 3 because of the legendary shooting guard, who is set to call time on his Hall of Fame career at the end of the season. So when Wade pulled him aside after the Miami Heat squeezed past the Hawks 114-113 on Tuesday (AEDT), the 20-year-old almost couldn’t believe his luck.

Wade, who has made a point of swapping jerseys with opposing players throughout the season, asked Huerter to trade with him.
