Dwyane Wade fans were able to wake up with the erstwhile Miami Heat star Thursday morning when he slid into the seat next to Kelly Ripa as her Live! guest cohost.
The morning show is shot in New York City, where, coincidentally (or not) Wade had free agency meetings. The day before Wade signed a two-year contract with the Chicago Bulls, and return to his hometown.
Right when he got on set the NBA superstar thanked his Heat fans and told Ripa he hadn’t been able to sleep or eat, trying to make his big decision.
Wearing a spiffy beige suit — “these pants are tight!” — the basketball legend also discussed his ESPN naked body shot and fashion (his Naked line of underwear).
