Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade is enjoying a bittersweet 37th birthday. The three-time champion has penned a reflective social media post this week about spending his final born day as an active NBA player.

Last night, Wade hopped on Instagram to share motivational words and acknowledge his last weeks in the league.

As i turned 37 today my mind started to become clear and as i was strolling thru my photo album trying to pick a photo to post for my birthday i came across this one…I started thinking to myself what did it take to get these?!. The answer that i came up with is…I have always been able to adapt and have a willingness to do whatever is needed for the better of everyone’s success around me. It donned on me that that’s my greatest strength and my greatest talent. Today is the last birthday that I’ll celebrate as a active NBA basketball player…and as i move into the next phase of my life I’ll go into it with the confidence of being an expert in adapting! Happy Birthday to the kid from 59th and prairie/ Robbins IL!!!! #onelastdance

Recently, buzz developed about Wade and fellow Miami Heat teammate Udonis Haslem possibly landing on South Beach native Rick Ross‘ upcoming Port of Miami 2 album.

Haslem also hit up Instagram with a slideshow of pics and joked about rapping for Rick Ross.

The same week, Rick Ross showed off a huge co-sign from NBA superstar LeBron James and updated fans on his Port of Miami 2 album status.
