Dwyane Wade - basketball superstar, champion, hometown hero, father and fashion-designer. With the main spotlight recently being cast on every other free agent in the NBA, Dwyane Wade has been flying under the radar. Although lately he has had little media attention, we continue to keep tabs on Miami's main man. Rumors this post-season that D-Wade might consider leaving the Miami Heat for the Chicago Bulls had us nervous, but those of us that know the real D-Wade know Miami is where his heart is.

Teams are allowed to use the amnesty clause one time over the course of the collective bargaining agreement, and the Bulls have chosen to remove Boozer to create their needed cap space.
